Thanks Alexandra! It pretty much sums me up, lioness heart and personality, and I *love* lifting. I don't have a BG monitor/test kit yet but I'll get one as soon as I'm home on Thursday, ironically I got the call from the Doctor last week but I'm away on a work trip, talk about timing! You're spot on, I'm building strength but also going for a full body transformation, too. I really need to figure out an optimal training regime that factors in high protein and *some* carbs, especially if today was anything to go by. That was freaky with the dizziness etc, yeesh. I'll definitely do as Sean suggested too, monitor my BG before and after training, as at the moment I'm working 'blind', so to speak, until I get the monitor. Overall aim is to get back under diabetic range within the 3 months, then go onwards and keep building strength, discipline and consistency.
