Ask and you shall do it

2013 eoy tnm2013 pu1What is this?  Trainer Tony having fun with a bungee cord and me doing full body push ups.  Ask and you shall do it!

I have to say it was a lot of fun as well as hard work.  I really worked up a sweat today moving up a level on everything.

Tony has always encouraged me to do what I can and push me when it’s possible.  Lately I’ve had more questions on strengthening exercises or how to do some that I just can’t figure out how they do them.  We work very hard on the quads and hamstrings.

I met with my physician today.  I hadn’t seen him six months.  He was really pleased at the changes.  He said he has a professional line that he didn’t want to cross but that I looked great.  Blush, blush.    I showed him my comparison picture from a few posts ago and he just couldn’t believe it.

We have a few goals to meet for next year.  To get rid of a few meds and in order to do that I have to probably lose another 40 pounds and keep up my exercise regimen.  My blood pressure is normal and my A1C is 5.1.

I can thank Trainer Tony for his professional commitment to my success.   Exercise for a diabetic is crucial.  It can make or break you.  Next years goal is to be off the insulin and I’d like to do an upside down handstand push up.  Let’s see if we can get that done.
