Worth Commemorating

I have finally worked my way up to 60 minutes of cardiovascular exercise every single day. I have not been able to do this since before my diagnosis in 2009. We'll say it was about July 2009 when I last did this much cardio exercise regularly.

From my perspective, this is a huge accomplishment. I was convinced that I'd never be able to do this regularly again. A big thanks to Sean Burch for writing the book Hyperfitness, which has given me the right workout philosophy and some great workout ideas. I see reading this book as being the turning point for me, allowing me to push myself back to my previous exercise levels.

In other news, I finally have about 30 data points in my bio-stats spreadsheet. When I get some spare time, I will run some regressions and see what seems to be affecting my blood glucose the most. In terms of "gut feel," I'd say total duration of exercise and number of consecutive days of exercise are the two variables that make the biggest impact.

More to come.
