I’ve been a type 1 diabetic for over 13 years. As with many people struggling with this disease, exercise, eating right, and taking care of yourself is key to avoid nasty complications in the future. In the past couple of years, however, I’ve slipped into a state of pure laziness with my health. I ate so-so, lacked motivation to push myself into a regular exercise routine, and eventually found myself with a doctor’s warning about my weight and overall lifestyle. I figured I needed a pretty tough routine to get myself back on track- so I signed up for Bulldog. From day one, I was hooked. My blood sugars levels have never been better, I have seen muscles that I haven’t seen for years, and I feel great. Funny, but I actually look forward to Sgt. Suzanne yelling at me! She is a great motivator, and an even better educator. Since joining, I’ve signed up for Tour de Cure, a 65 mile bicycle ride to help find a cure for diabetes. I’m certain that with my 12 week training that I’ll be able to cross the finish line, something I doubt I could have accomplished before my evenings with the Bulldogs. Thank you!
