Not Too Short Not Too Sweet

Waking up too soon, too late. Maybe by six, maybe by eight. Like life there is an ebb and flow. But six, you need some good ol' joe. A quarter after, on my way. Up off my *** to greet the day. You see in today's modern realm. Our laptop is our new age helm. So here I sit with my fitbit. Inspired to move, after I .... . Get up and prance on my Gazelle. To ring that 10,000 step bell. The Doc says I have to lose weight. So better at six, too late at eight. And sweets, I have to cut down on. Forgive me, if I wear a frown. Butt, :) I want to look my very best. I know, that I go on in jest. Butt, :) we all know that it's no joke. That's why I no longer drink Coke. Eh, sometimes. :) Note: I apologize for the crass language, butt, :) sometimes you just have to go with the rhyme. :/ :) <3 I await Poetrysoup's response. lol P.S. *** rhymes with gas. That was Poetrysoup, not me. :) Told ya'. :) lol

Doc says do it, sister gets me a fitbit, done, such a good motivator to get up and get active. I have gotten on my Gazelle seriously for the first time since I bought it 3 to 4 years ago. :) I already am feeling considerably better. :) <3 And thank you for your encouragement.

I .diabetic health controlled. Excercise is very important as well as food. I'm sure you have it all under control

Yes, it sure is. I was way to sedentary in my life style. Now I have a fitbit and finally am using that Gazelle rather than just dusting it and using it to hang things on. :) I've already lost a couple lbs. So, only 58 more to go. :)Thank you for your concern. <3 :)

Hi Silent, No, I'm not yet, but that's why my doctor wants me to start to take control of this because I'm a tad over the mark on my levels for type 2. Poetic crass. lol Thanks for that. :) <3
