74 Days

Blog Post created by mpnaegle on Jun 22, 2019

I’m happy to say that I’ve made it to 74 days.  The last week was a challenge.  My doctor told me that  my diabetes is out of control, so I’m back on oral meds.  (Type 2).  He also told me that my cholesterol is too high, so I’m going on a statin too.  He was thrilled when I told him I wasn’t smoking...but yes I’m getting older and I need to take better care of my body.  I can’t eat whatever I want to any more; I can’t drink sugary drinks, little or no soda, and definitely no DIET Coke.  i can’t drink alcohol as much as I used to, I have to exercise, and I definitely can’t—no, I WON’T—smoke ever again.  So I’m dealing with some pain right now.  Not physically, but spiritually, emotionally.  I’m facing the fact that I’m not invincible.  I’m not immortal.  I’m not 20-something any more.  I’ve got to make my health my number one priority.  No more excuses, no more avoiding the gym.  Time for Peter Pan to grow up.  XO
