How much do you exercise daily? Weekly? Do you want a way to keep yourself accountable for your exercise routine?
If you are a twitterbetic, you may have seen the hashtag #sweatbetes flying around. What Sweatbetes means is simply sweatin’ with diabetes. We use the hashtag to record our daily work outs via twitter.
Well, I’m bringing Sweatbetes to TuDiabetes. In this forum, we can report our daily exercise and cheer each other on as we work to manage our diabetes. I searched and found a few similar topics, but they seem to have faded in popularity and I hope we can keep this one alive for a little while. Exercise is an essential part of treatments and I know that on days when I work out I see better numbers on my meter.
So here is how it works: all you have to do is post what exercise you did that day and how much you did. We will gain ideas from each other and be held accountable that way. Then, we can help each other by encouraging and cheering each other on.
If you want, post your goal first. My goal is to do a cardio work out 3 times a week for 30 minutes, and some sort of strength or flexibility training twice a week.
I hope we have some fun with this!
