Welcome marieb to Lighter Limbs. I will try to find the newsletter that had that info. in it. When I was diagnosed, I knew nothing about Diabetes 2 so I searched everything I could find and bought the Mayo Clinic books. Somewhere along the way I must have signed up for the newsletter because I get it every day in my inbox. Honestly, I don't recall what I did to get it. I'll look. What I wrote is mostly what was in it. Mayo never gives long articles, so this was a short one to encourage exercise for the 12 weeks, starting with just 15 minutes and at the 12th week it will be 40 minutes. It's a gradual increase so that non-exercisers like me can get used to the routine and add a little at a time. This Friday, I can devote 15 minutes of warm up (a slow walk), 5 minutes of brisk walk (not sure how fast I can go for brisk), and then cool down (a slow walk again. I look forward to it, and that's strange for me to say since I'm not an exercise fan.
Thanks for coming along with me. I know we can do this and on January 25th, won't we be proud?
