Hot Fitness Tip

     

Individuals with type 1 diabetes should avoid exercise if fasting blood glucose is higher than 250 mg/dl and ketones are present. Caution should be used if glucose levels are higher than 300 and no ketones are present. Individuals with type 2 diabetes should avoid exercise if blood glucose is higher than 400 mg/dl. Monitoring blood glucose before, after and possibly during physical activity is necessary to keep blood glucose within an appropriate range.


Words of Inspiration

     

Stay Committed to your Goals

Commitment is absolutely necessary in order to achieve goals. You can say you will do something, but until you actually make a decision to commit to it and follow through with the relevant steps, you will most likely not see progress and achievement towards that desired outcome.

Setbacks are bound to happen. Rather than letting each problem de-motivate you from your goal, treat set backs as learning experiences. This is especially helpful if your goal is simply to land a job. For each rejection letter, ask for a little feedback that may help you succeed when applying to other jobs.

Record your progress in a journal or reflect on all the work you've accomplished so far. This will keep you motivated as you move toward your goal.   
 
 

 

Success Quote
