So, me and dh joined the gym yesterday. Well we joined Thursday but went for the first time yesterday. Felt great but only swam. Have an induction and programme tomorrow evening after work. I've got lots of little ailments post accident so not going to get a massive programme, but want to build a little muscle to try help with insulin resistance. I wonder if the guy with have any idea what I'm on about?!?!

I do 5 hr long Zumba classes per week and this has reduced my insulin needs by 3/4 of  what I was taking before

 :) just be safe young lady !!!!!!!!!


( i am sure you will )


as with all things concerning D -- i would suggest a slow build up to a full regime to allow for you to make adjustments to your insulin doses.


safety is important


all the best

This is something I always think about but never make the step too do. I'd like more muscle for the look as well as hopefully lowering my IR. I like to just be more fit in general too. My heart rate is pretty high at resting (about 100bpm) and from what I've read exercise is the answer to that too.
