Yesterday was not my best day. I started out with a little fast food and ended with fast food. I kept my portions moderate though, so at least there is that. I had karate last night and it felt good being out on the mat and getting the work in. The funny thing with karate is that the warm up exercises are physically harder than the karate itself. Between the crunches, sit ups and jumping jacks I am worn out before we really get to work. The up side is that I can tell I’m getting stronger and that is an awesome step in the right direction. I talked with my wife last night and we should be able to continue with my taking karate after my trial month is over. I’m totally excited about this. I think between the karate and the changes in my diet I’ll be able to lose twenty or thirty pounds and shake off the diabetes. This is a long-term process, but the end results will be so worth it.
