Everyone had a good laugh but that comment stuck with me most of the weekend. I often joke that I'm OCD, probably not the best thing to joke about but I have definite OCD tendencies. How and when did I become such a scheduled person? I honestly believe it happened when I got control of my diabetes. If you ask Leanne what I'm doing at 5:45 every morning the answer is simple, I'm flipping between Quick Pitch on MLB network or watching the local news while eating eggs or a bowl of cereal. If you ask the guys at work what I'm doing at 11:30 everyday again the answer is simple. I'm testing my blood sugar and have an apple, almonds, a sandwich and a fiber one bar next to me.
Honestly it bothers me a little bit that my life is so regimented but I wouldn't change it. My life is so scheduled because I look at my life and body like a machine, you change your oil every three thousand miles so why should I push my body to extremes. I know that if I don't eat dinner around 6pm that it messes up my blood sugar and how I feel physically and mentally.
Being so regimented has helped me tremendously as a diabetic, a coach, at my job and as a person. I don't know what I would do if I didn't have my day planned out, if you want a good laugh steal my alarm clock and laugh like crazy when I go nuts if I wake up late. I can laugh as I type that but I'm honestly scared of how I would be.
