Over the course of the past 8-9 weeks I really stepped it up in terms of exercise. I was consistently working out 3-4 times a week. (That may not sound a lot to some, but compared to my doing nothing previously, it is to me) Up to last week that is. I wasn’t feeling too well; like I was coming down with some illness or something; so tried listening to my body and took a rest period. Not so coincidentally, I started seeing too many ups and downs in my BG readings. I knew I had to get back to it. And last night I forced myself onto my elliptical for a really good workout. And woke up to this.
Now don’t get me wrong, this doesn’t happen every single time I exercise. But I do notice it a lot. It’s a big difference. And this has become my main motivation to keep up with exercise. And those undesirable complications that have begun to haunt me in little ways? Yeah keeping those to a bare minimum is also a huge incentive for me. So when my lazy side tries to take over, I think I’m going to look at this picture. Or recall the intravitreal injection I had recently. And that should keep me going!
