Feeling rather disgruntled with the getting healthy thing


Wednesday, October 29, 2008

So, here I am watching my food intake, exercising and doing all the things I have done to manage my diabetes and yesterday I get home from walking into town to purchase a few items and my blood sugar is closer to 600 than anything. How, why, and all the other questions going through my head. A diabetic friend had the same issue yesterday, so where does that leave me. The barometric pressure is playing havoc on my blood sugar and Monty's? I started this because my Dr. told me I was just where I needed to be with my diabetes and not to change a thing. But how can being healthier be a problem?

    How are you doing? I came to your SparkPage because I noticed the beautiful photo (are you a photographer or an artist?) -- it's really striking, especially the way you framed your face against the clouds.

Anyway, I can really sympathize with the leg cramps stuff. When I first started walking a lot, after many years of being sedentary, this happened to me almost every time. Stretching immediately afterwards helps a *ton*. There are some great stretching videos on SP that show you just how to do it so you can stay safe. The good news is, after a couple of weeks the cramps stopped completely and my only challenge was making enough time to walk each day. I hope you're still sticking with it!

    Bodies are fascinating with all of their checks and balances, at least until one of them stops working and you are left trying to figure out how it all works!
If you change part of your routine, even for the better, it is a change and changes are stressful to our routine-loving bodies so they react as though something like eating vegetables, getting exercise and drinking more water are a HUGE stress and all goes haywire! It doesn't last long, but at least in my body if I try to mix things up I am okay for a few days... but then all of a sudden my body notices that things are different now and it freaks out and I spend a day or two trying to get my blood sugar back to where it was before I tried to be good. Not fair at all, but it does go away as long as you keep trucking along despite your body's disapproval.
Good luck!
