I eXercised almost daily for two years. The last several months my activity level has dropped… mainly due to Ollie and work.
I still go for 15-30 minute walks twice a day, lift heavy things 1-3 times a week and perform intense cardio 1-2 times a week.
So I am not ‘slacking off’ too badly. :)
Why do I do it?
The main reason I do it? I truly believe it helps me control my blood sugars. I can’t prove it… but I do believe it.
Another benefit is my energy level and ability to ‘hang’ with my sons during VACATION TIME!
Playing and having fun all day… and most of the night is a great feeling. Having the strength and stamina to enjoy all that life has to offer is a blessing NO ONE can measure.
Like the Mastercard commercial…it’s priceless. :)
In case you have missed them, here are previous posts on the beach trip.
Pictures and Videos of my recent Wrightsville Beach / Wilmington, NC trip.
Here is a beach video of Brad’s first attempt at coaxing… or dragging Ollie to the breakers, in the daylight.
We had actually taken Ollie the night before and that may have been our undoing. Ollie was scared of the waves at night and that did not change the next day. :(

Still a couple of days later when Ollie HAD TO CROSS rushing water on the jetty, he did do so. I was so proud of him. You can read that post here, “Primal & Dangerous Adventure“, below is a picture.
Below is a video of me performing Jump Burpees on the sidewalk, outside a restaurant in downtown Wilmington. The waitress filmed it for me, Brad and Ollie looked on… :)
Lastly … here are several of my favorite pictures of the beach and waterway… it’s so beautiful. :)
Thanks for reading this post and remember… you too can start THRIVING… and not just surviving.
Be a diabetes warrior TOO!!! If can do it… so can you. :)
