My blood sugar is high once again and as promised I will take a step back from the Beast Mode workout. It’s OK to see numbers at slightly over 100 when you are working out, but when I see that I am teetering at around 150 there are problems.
This doesn’t mean that it is time to stop working out, it just means that I need to take a step back. I was hoping that this didn’t happen, but it is and my life certainly isn’t worth looking like a body builder. I learned this lesson once before and you figured that I would be smart enough to realize that it would happen again, but I had to give it a chance.
So I am taking a few days off to reevaluate my workout routine, get started with my new job and once again develop a plan that fits my working lifestyle and my difficulties with Type II Diabetes.
I know that there are many herbs and foods that act to reduce inflammation, however the problems is that when you are working your muscles hard the inflammation that occurs is natural. This is what the body does to deliver needed nutrients, amino acids, sugars and of course oxygen to the damaged muscle tissue. By reducing the inflammation you are also interrupting the healing process. In this case the inflammation is not the problem. The problem is the injured muscle tissue. The only way to stop this from occurring is the reduce the intensity of the workout. The only answer to reducing the inflammation is rest and allowing the body to due what it does best, repair damaged tissue. This is the same process that we go through after we injure ourselves in other ways. Time is the healer.
