It’s 2022, and I think we all want to forget 2020 and 2021! Here’s hoping this year will be better.

I’m still doing OA. On top of that, I just got myself a continuous blood sugar monitor, and the regular feedback is really helping me figure out how different things I eat affect my body.

The difference in how my body responds to carbs and sugar versus protein and fat is striking. It’s a real wake-up call. Fasting makes my blood sugar even better. Sugary treats make it skyrocket. I always thought blood sugar would be marginally affected by food. I was wrong.

So I’m changing my food plan. I’m fasting every second day until dinnertime, and my food plan is keto-based. When I look at how my blood sugar rises eating carbs, I realise that I don’t really want to eat carbs again. I feel better without them.

For my walking plan, I’m covering all the streets in Dunedin over the course of the year. It gives me a goal and a change of scenery every day to do this.

So here’s 2022. May it suck less than the last two years!
