I walk.

I know, it’s a weird title, but it’s true.  I walk.  I walk not for transportation, not for actually going anywhere, but for exercise, for entertainment, for reflection, for musing, for helping control my T2 diabetes.  I walk and I walk and I walk.  Last summer and fall, I walked an average of 6-7 miles a day.   This winter about 3 miles a day. I walk while on vacation, I walk while on business trips, I walk in the rain, I walk in the wind; the only time I don’t walk is in the dark.

Walking has brought my diabetes under control.  I was diagnosed 10 years ago, and walking has brought my blood sugar down to nearly non-diabetic levels.  I am off all diabetic medicines except for metformin.  Diabetes is considered a progressive disease; I refuse to believe that. With proper exercise and food choices, diabetes can be kept under control.

This blog is my journey; my walking progress, my meals, my musings, my successes and failures, my excitement and my heartbreak.  Follow along with me on this journey, and along the way I hope to inspire you to make changes to live a healthier and better you.
