Update on my own health and well being

As I’ve said in the past, I hope to share with you how I’ve gotten to such a good place in my life and hope that it will inspire or give you ways to help you with your own quest for a good healthy life.
So.... I feel an update every now and then on how my own health is and what I’ve been doing, good or bad is important. A reality check is always good!
In the early spring I was really walking a lot. I was walking 3 to five miles a day and feeling good. Then the summer season started and I’m a little disappointed because I didn’t hardly do any walking and got in very few hikes. I did have a good summer. Me and my friend explored as many dirt roads and camping spots as possible. We also would go out on Monday or Tuesday and pick a spot and set up camp. There are a lot of places within a 10-30 min drive of the ranch. Sometimes we would leave the camp set up until Sunday, going back and forth to the ranch.
Anyway, over the summer and through the month of October my weight had inched up a few pounds. I took notice and started paying attention. I had been left with a lot of beer when everyone left the ranch and was drinking about 3 or 4 a night, I have cut back to two. I have been trying to get more raw foods into my diet. I take several supplements. I take a multi-vitamin, fish oil, magnesium and DHEA. I take several products from Young Living, “Digest and Cleanse”, “ Essential Enzymes”, I drink about 2oz of “Ningxia Red” a day and I drink a shake in the morning called “Balance Complete”
I still haven’t gotten back to walking, but by just paying a little more attention, I have lost 10lbs.
For those that don’t know, I was diagnosed with type two diabetes three years ago. My blood sugar is now regularly between 95 and 105. The other day it spiked at 135 but I had a bunch of Chinese food and on that day I drank about 4 beers. Most of the time I check my blood sugar very infrequently. But because I wanted to do this update, the past couple of weeks I have been checking it everyday at different times during the day and am very pleased with the results I’m getting.
