Day 72/80 Can you believe I’m NOT where I want to be on this journey? ❌
I woke up today and I could just FEEL something was going to happen. Because I had been putting something off. I was living in FEAR.
My blood sugars had been STELLAR. So much, in fact, that I thought I could stop testing my blood sugars and even put off testing my #a1c (diabetic report card) for 6 months.
I was afraid to check my blood sugars because I was afraid to know if they had gone up.
I got my report card back and for the first time in years, my A1C was out of range. I had failed my test.
It felt like a punch to my gut. I have been eating healthy, working out and doing everything I needed to be doing. Why was this happening?
But our bodies CHANGE. We don’t always know why. And that’s okay.
For a split second there I wanted to blame the test, blame my body, blame MYSELF. Maybe I could have done better. Maybe I could have done more.
But the last thing my body or yours needs is more unhealthy stress on it. Instead, I am choosing to focus on the POSITIVES.
1️⃣ Thank goodness I tested when I did! Now I know there is a problem!
2️⃣ I’m so grateful for the tools I have! Shakeology, my workouts, my eating plan which I can customize to help me reach my goal of a normal A1C again.
3️⃣I’ve reached normal levels before, I can do it AGAIN.
4️⃣ I have a great doctor who supports how I take control of my health.
5️⃣ This is a great opportunity to show others struggling with high blood sugars that they can get theirs under control too!
Now that I’m seeing clearly again, my WHY is front and centre:
I am here to help myself and help others with chronic medical conditions find the tools they need to meet their health goals for themselves but also for their families.
I have seen with my own two eyes what not ignoring the “dirt” or medical problems you have can do to your life and the lives of your family members.
I may have been afraid to see it before, but I’m ready to face it NOW.
It’s time to clean up the house I call MY BODY.
I am READY. Are you?
If you or a family member of yours wants more information on how to be connected to the tools I will be using to get my diabetes back under control, I’m a message away.
