Diabetes has done a lot in my life. The changes that I have gone through, not only in my own health, but in my house as well, have been both good and bad. I've cleaned, and lost, closet space. I've watched my food intake more, and also threw it out the window.
The one thing that I am particularly proud of is my exercise competition with my best friend this year. I've surprised myself with being able to surpass my goal every month! One month I even completed double what my goal was!
It hasn't been without it's bummers, let me assure you. This month, for example, I did not win. My best friend beat me by a few hours. FEW HOURS!! I was 1.03 mile short of the goal, when she texted me at 6:50 this morning with her completion of the month's goal. (I'll expand more on this at the end of the month when I have my complete figures).
However, the fact that I'm able to reach my goal, without significant lows and even plowing through a few highs, tells me that I can do anything I set my mind to.
I can push myself and not let Diabetes get in the way.
I can compete against a "healthy' person, on the same level and truly be a challenging competitor.
