Just wanted to show you what my primal day was like today, June 1, 2011. Just more evidence of me, thriving with diabetes. Why share these types of posts?
- Evidence of my thriving with diabetes on a low carb paleo meal plan and lifestyle.
- Ultimately I want to motivate you to follow my ‘lead’ and maintain truly normal blood sugars.
- Provide proof that diabetes does not have to be a debilitating disease.
The internet can be a wonderful source of information. It can also be a sewer where people are mislead into poorer and poorer health. Luckily I had a great list of honest truth seekers, showing me the way.
I try to be good example of others to follow. It’s why I post so much of what I do on this blog and on social media. To show YOU… there is a better way! A better way to eat, play and to LIVE! I love this picture.
X stands for eXercise
About 10 o’clock this morning I decided to try for a All Time Personal Record for Jumping Jacks in 15 minutes. My previous high had been 942 in 15 minutes.
To help me set a new record I decided to change tactics… typically I would just attempt to go ‘all out’ and hope to set new records…. this has worked often in the past but not always.
This time I changed tactics… I decided to attempt three, 5 minute sets with goals of 333 for each 5 minute set … and do one extra on the last set for 1,000. :)
While I did want to do 1,000 and I really did try … my intermediate goal (as it is most days) is to achieve a new personal record.
Below are the results…
A New Personal Record
Yes, I achieved a new personal record!! Woot!
My goals were 333 for each 5 minute ‘set’. The first set of scribbling shows that I actually completed the first two ‘goals’ of 333 before 5 mintutes were up.
The first set was completed in 4:45 with the 2nd set completed in 4:55.
The 3rd and final set, time ran out with ‘only’ 316 Jumping Jacks completed for a total of …. 982.
It is difficult to write when you have no oxygen, lol.
Additional Exercises – I completed 30 minutes of Intense Cardio later in the afternoon…. doing Burpees and jump squats etc.
As soon as I finish this post… I’m heading over to the high school to run sprints.
Here are pics of some of my foods and the nutrient mix charts. :)
This is low protein, I usually try to be in the 90-135 gram range, but one day of lower protein means nothing. I’ve fasted for days… and felt fine.

If your blood sugars are elevated and you cannot achieve truly normal blood sugars with diet alone…
