Posts of the exercises I do as part of my two prong approach to successfully self managing my diabetes.

Brad, knowing how much I hate to lose, in an attempt to console me adds, "I guess your age is catching up to you finally." What the hell??? Brad meant well when he said this, but to me ... it was like sticking a hot stake into my eye!

eXcellent eXercise eXperiments

Blood sugars are THE single most important health number for diabetics, IF you eat like me... mainly fatty meats, leafy green vegetables, eggs, coconut oil and butter...

Day in a Diabetic Thriving Life

EVERYTHING we do is an experiment. Everything. YOU are the results of all that you have done up to this point. I urge you to pay attention to your experiment and try to improve your blood sugars, your health and your fitness. You will be glad you did. :)

Another Experiment – Exercise And Diabetes

We are all experiments! Which reminds me of this quote by Eric Savage of MythBusters. "Remember kids, the only difference between screwing around and science... is writing it down." At least in the eyes of Eric Savage, through the years I've done a lot of science. I guess that makes me a ... scientist ... :)

1058 Push Ups

Every single test of potato starch that I've done has been successful. I am about to gear back up for more tests too... so stay tuned. I've been asking this question a lot lately ... having seen my results, if you are not using potato starch... why not?
