You don't have to shake yourself! We'll do it for you! (LOL!) Actually, it's not always easy to get your exercise in but one thing I have found that works and it's free. (Kind of depends on where you live as in, winter ice and snow.) On my way home from dropping my kids at school I would cruise over to a very wealthy neighborhood along the river. I park my car and walk along looking at the pretty homes and river for 15 minutes. Then I turn around and walk back to my car. I noticed that after a few weeks I was walking ever further in my half hour and getting better sugars, too.
Unfortunately I have sustained a nasty foot injury and the walking thing is out now so I'm stuck doing yoga... but any movement is better than none! Hang in there and keep coming back here for inspiration. Most everyone here is very helpful and caring and have little hints to help us all fight the good fight.
And remember, the reward for being good is that you get to be good some more! You also get to see your grandkids grow up and keep your feet. Just keep making good choices every day. Every good choice is a step toward feeling better. Bad choices can stop at any time and be replaced by good ones. And when your sugar is high, if you can't do anything else, drink water. That will help your kidneys do their job and dilute your blood.
Glad to make you as a new friend even if it's just because we share diabetes.
