Looking for a Spring forward idea?
Saturday, March 23, 2019
If you've not already mapped out a journey to celebrate spring, why not join a 5% Challenge team for the spring challenge? We've not yet started, so still time to join a team.
The teams are VERY active and require participation but the effort sees returns. Stay the course and you'll be glad you did. Teams are very supportive, so on those "down" days, visit the team page and get a lift. If interested, search for 5% Challenge in teams.
I've been on Spark each day, but I'm not good at writing blogs.
--Thanks for the sock recommendations. The gold toed ones are great; fit well, don't get stretched out, launder well, and I thank those of you who recommended them.
--My husband wants to avoid insulin at all costs. Our doctor recommended a local hospital's diabetes education program, so we've been going 2 days a week. We exercise for about 30-40 minutes while the leaders do an educational program. We have to weigh before each class, both before and after the class take a glucose reading, heart rate and blood pressure. I ask to be referred also so I could "make" my husband go. He is being more attentive to his glucose readings. And as part of the program we met with a nutritionist and now we're much more attentive to our carbs.
When I was introduced to diabetes, in the late 50's via my grandfather, it was all about the sugar. When I was diagnosed, I was told to watch carbs, I was concerned about sugars. Now, and it makes sense, the education part focuses on carbs.
