Inscribed on the ancient Greek temple at Delphi was the phrase “Know thyself.” OK. It was actually in Greek and not Elizabethan English, but it’s still translates well.
I know myself well enough to know that it usually takes something dramatic to get my attention and make me act on something, especially when it comes to changing my lifestyle. Luckily? I had one of the “ah, ha!…er…oh shit” moments this week. I almost put myself into a coma.
Once I realized I had let my diabetes…wait…back up…Once I finally admitted I have diabetes, I vowed to change my lifestyle and fix this mess.
Here is what I decided:
1. I’ll take my meds as prescribed and talk to my doc about adjusting and/or changing them.
2. I will radically change my diet and eating habits.
3. I will exercise, however moderately, starting by adding 1,000 steps to my daily routine.
4. I will stay alive.
It’s all in this video. I’d retype it, but I’m going to get the WII out and do at least a little something. It’s amazing how much cardio that stupid, little boxing game that came with the console can produce.
