Results are in. Turns out that I am not diabetic. Yay! Thank goodness. My doctor was anything but helpful and just gave me the results with no plan, no ideas, nothing. So, after some deliberating I have decided that the best approach is to eat small meals every 2-3 hours. This way, I am always getting fuel and the likelihood of my blood sugar crashing is reduced greatly. I also started keeping a food log and workout journal in a fitbook. If you don't know what a fitbook is, it's pretty much the dopest 12-week journal evers. Check it out: http://www.getfitbook.com/
It lets me track weights, cardio, flexibility, food and water intake. I took my measurements. I weighed myself. I refocused. Game on.
My sister reminded me today that this is a lifelong journey for me. It's not something that is going to happen overnight. I can't let myself forget that and give up. I have apparently inspired people to make changes in themselves, become fitter, push themselves to do things they wouldn't have dreamed of doing before. I hope I continue to do that. To help people realize that you really can do anything you set your mind to. Anything. It's all mind over matter. If you let yourself feel defeated before you even begin... you will never be better than you are now. I'm choosing to climb every sand covered hill and then run down it with gusto! Care to join me??
