It is going to be interesting watching my numbers over the next week without the daily workout. I believe that they will confirm that the daily workout is one of the key factors in keeping the type II diabetes in check. Yesterday I did continue the protein supplements only because I worked out the day prior and still have muscle demand for protein. But today and all the way up to next Monday I will leave them out of the diet.

I can feel my chest and arms calling to me to workout. It is a funny feeling like my body expecting to hammer out another challenging routine, and it is hard not to do it. I am not only giving my body the rest it needs, I am also breaking a cycle. When I return to the workouts it will feel difficult once again like it did months ago.

I am winning the battle with type II diabetes, created a plan to have all debt paid off in 4 years including the house, taking advantage of every opportunity to live life to it's fullest through adventures in nature, hiking, biking, loving and learning.
