I'm A Weeble

Friday, November 30, 2012

That's right I wobbled but I didn't fall down!

On Wednesday afternoon my husband and I were going to the pool to work out and I checked my blood sugar 1st, I was low, Since exercise lowers your blood sugar I stopped at a gas station on the way to get a snack. They had nothing healthy and I had to get candy. I grabbed a Chunky bar and split it with my husband. Then we went on to exercise.

That is how I would have described this situation a month ago. After spending time on this site and reading articles I now see it a little different.

On Wednesday I checked my blood sugar before exercising and saw I was low. I know I am diabetic and should be be prepared for this situation but was not. I could have stopped at Walmart and gotten an orange but I chose to go quick and easy instead. I went to a gas station and I got a candy bar and ate it before working out.

I was in control of this situation. I am not a victim of of my diabetes or of circumstances. I ate the candy bar because of choices I made. I could have made sure I had a healthy snack just in case. I could have taken a couple extra minutes to get a healthy snack. It was not the gas station's fault. It was not my disease's fault. I had the power to make the right decision. Therefore I have the power to solve this problem next time. If I don't have a healthy snack on hand I will take the extra minutes to get one.

My choices put this weight on me and only my choices will take it off. I choose what to eat. I choose when to eat it. I choose when and if I exercise. I have the choice. I have the power. I have the responsibility. I'll decide!!

Like any good Weeble I wobbled but I won't fall down!

    Hi there Sparky emoticon
I am just hanging out watching my football games and cruising through some spark stuff between plays. I stumbled accross this blog and just wanted to tell you that I think you have a super great attitude. Personal responsibility can be so hard to own but you seem to have a good handle on it.

You keep hanging in there and remember to come back and read this if things get to wobbley!
