Nov 5, 2018 · Three more races in Healthy Living

Thanks for the tag! I continue to conduct my "virtual races" – generally by walking 3 – 4 miles at a time, with a goal of 3 walks per week. I use the virtual races from yes.fit (I have no stake in their business). Right now I am doing an Oktoberfest walk through Munich. It is fun to rack up the miles and see the Google street view photos of "where I walked!" As the colder weather sets in here in the midwest, I do more indoor walking workouts with Leslie Sansone's Walk at Home videos (available free on YouTube). Good luck to all!

It is my current virtual race from yes.fit. I am walking the Ring of Kerry in Ireland – virtually. I am about halfway through the 104 Miles!

I think you are wise. One must enjoy exercise to persist in it.

1) listen to music as I walk. I compile my own playlists.
2) listen to Audible recorded books as I walk.
3) I participate in Virtual Races. You sign up, complete the races at your own pace. You see where you “are” on Google street views. This has shown me scenery on a number of continents! I like the races at yes.fit – I have completed almost 30. Right now I am walking the Ring of Kerry. They have a very supportive and encouraging Facebook page!
Good luck.

Personally I prefer walking to running – I am 63, and have been walking for several years now. That has been art of my efforts to control my weight and my A1C/diabetes. I have walked quite a few 5Ks and it is great fun! Even did the 5K/10K combination two years now at the Illinois Marathon. I encourage you to give it a go – I bet you can do it!

Jul 16, 2018 · blood sugar numbers in Diabetes/Endocrine System

I have had the same problem… my endocrinologist explained that while you sleep your body processes accumulated sugars from food you have consumed during the day (I am certainly oversimplifying here!). After about 5 years of Metformin only, doc added Januvia. That improved control somewhat, but lately the disease has progressed and I am taking Levemir (insulin) at bedtime. It seems to have significantly improved my morning results – will see my A1C in three months. But I did see that same trend in overnight numbers as you have, Steve. Good luck!
