Setting the right goals 🥅
.
Setting goals for yourself is one of the most important things you can do, both long term and short term goals. But you also need to think about what is realistic and what is a priority for this moment in your life. You need to be able to adapt and change your goals depending on your current situation.

For me right now, keeping fit and healthy will always be a top priority, but the more aesthetic aspect of training has taken a back seat. Being on my year abroad I want to be able to experience as much as possible, whether that’s eating more ‘unhealthy’ food than normal because I want to try local foods, or whether that’s missing a session or 2 in the gym because I want to go and explore somewhere. This year abroad is 9 months of my life that I want to make the most of, and so having abs or growing my bum can’t be a priority right now. Sure, if I can work towards these things during this time then I will, but if a last minute trip pops up then the gym will have to wait.
I know that when I get home I can dedicate more of my time and energy to the gym and nutrition, and then maybe some aesthetic goals will be more of a priority (although they will never be my main reason for training - health benefits > aesthetics always). So if you’re feeling frustrated at the moment just stop and think, are you really focusing on the right priorities? Maybe you’re doing exams and can’t get to the gym - you’re future is much more important than an inch more muscle. Maybe you’re in the first stages of a new relationship and eating out a lot - making memories and possibly finding love is so much more important than a lower body fat %. At different stages of life different things will have to take priority, but never be disheartened if things don’t go to plan. Cherish what you’re gaining instead of the progress you think you’ll be losing.

DAY 15 of the @the.insulin.type #happydiabeticchallenge - Diabetic cost of living

#diabetes can be a costly condition to live with but we decided a long time ago that we were worth it!
In our opinion, as long as you are willing to learn and improve your condition your health provider should support you.
We’re very lucky to live in the UK and have the #NHS provide for our needs at little to no cost. We don’t pay for our insulin, our tablet medication, our blood glucose strips and more recently our #freestylelibre CGM, which has been the biggest development in recent years.
A question we often ask is how much do you value your health and are you willing to invest in it? People like choice and will pick solutions that add value to their life and fit with their lifestyle.
There are lots of diabetic bags on the market, all offering a variety of features and different prices.
Our #GaneshaGear #diabetic #bagoflife is designed by a T1D for other diabetics. It has been researched, developed, prototyped and tested to give us our final product, which is now on sale. We value quality, and our bag is designed to enable people who want to be more physically active, while keeping all your diabetics supplies and accessories close to hand should you need them. It’s not only functional but has a good brand and looks great too!

Managed to get myself into the gym after having some shitty bg’s. 🙌🏼

Happy world diabetes day!! 💉💉
.
I think today it’s important to celebrate the fact that we’re lucky enough to live in a time when diabetes is manageable and shouldn’t stop you from doing anything you want to do.
I was worried about my year abroad because I wasn’t sure how I would manage my diabetes with all the chaos and how I’d arrange getting my prescriptions, but here I am nearly 5 months into living in Paris and managing my diabetes.
Diabetes should never stop you from doing anything you want to do, whether that’s go travelling, try a new sport, losing weight, or climbing a mountain ⛰. You can do anything anyone else can, you just need to become an expert in diabetes and your own body by learning everything you can.

Never be afraid to do something because of diabetes, everything is possible, you just need to prepare yourself.

DAY 14 of the @the.insulin.type #happydiabeticchallenge - World Diabetes Day

Happy #WorldDiabetesDay to all our fellow #diabetics around the world.
Today is a day to raise awareness of #diabetes to new audiences.
It also important to recognise the circle of life that a diabetic exists in. This picture was originally shared by East Berkshire Primary Care Out Of Hours. It is an excellent illustration of what our lives revolve around - blood glucose monitoring, insulin injections, diet, nutrition, hypos, hypers, exercise, physical activity, weight, blood pressure, diabetic retinopathy, etc... As long as you #takecharge #takecontrol #takeaction with your diabetes, you will see many world diabetes days... We have designed our bag to be the centre of our circle of life as it allows me to hold all our diabetic supplies and accessories in one place when being out and about

Hi, here is my generic #worlddiabetesday post. This is a photo from Saturday where I spent 4 and a half hours talking to a camera (and a lovely man called Ethan) about diabetes and emotional well-being and my experiences for @diabetesuk
Remember it’s not always easy but it’s not always hard and keep perspective and remember to laugh at yourself.

The fourteenth of November is World #diabetesawareness Day! In my eyes it’s about raising the awareness to everyone out there, who are not aware of a condition that lots of babies,children,adults and elderly are living with everyday. Please take the time to read about out it, to understand what these brave, amazing, hero’s are living with daily. Not only are they amazing, but their families are too, especially the superhero mums who have it all under control @mybigfatplate ...Tracey you are one. Well done Ashlee, you’re rocking it ✌🏼. To get back onto my excitement for today, this is me when I receive an Amazon delivery.... omg this book I’ve been hanging out for, has arrived. The Diabetic Muscle & Fitness Guide by Phil Graham, a sports nutritionist, fitness educator, bodybuilder and a Type 1 diabetic for over 10 years. Being diagnosed with Type 1 LADA and having a 2 and 1/2 year honeymoon phase, now 4 months into Lantus, I’ve discovered that it’s all about educating yourself. Through reading, researching and picking up tips from other diabetics is the best way to learn, learn and learn! Can’t wait to read this @diabeticmuscleandfitness #diabeticmuscleandfitness #raisingawareness #keto #ketofood #ketogenisis #ketorecipes #ketosis #lowcarb #ketodiabetic #ketogenicdiet #ketomom #ketofood #ketofam #ketoeats #ketolife #ketocommunity #sugarfree #type1diabetic #diabetes #lchf #primal #paleo #wheatfree #grainfree #fitness #glutenfree #foodvideos #health #gym #fitnesss

Do you need to sweat to have a good session? 💦💦
.
There seems to be the idea that you didn’t work hard or won’t make any gains if you didn’t sweat your 🍑 off in the gym. But the truth is how much you sweat has nothing to do with how hard you worked. You should judge the quality of your workout instead by how much you’ve progressed since your last similar session and weather you think you really pushed yourself in your workout or if you just went through the motions.

To be honest, on my upper body strength days I barely sweat at all and could probably get away without showering and nobody would notice (FYI I don’t do this because the gym is gross but just making my point 😂) How much you sweat will depend on the weather, how many other people are in the gym and heating it up with their warmth, how tired (or hungover) you are, and so many other things.

Of course, you should probably be sweating if your doing hiit or something that’s high intensity cardio-based, because the whole purpose of those workouts is to get your heart rate up and really get moving. But if your focusing on strength or skills then you should be taking a lot of rest and it’s likely you won’t sweat much at all.
Everyone’s body is different and some people sweat more than others naturally, so don’t compare the quality of your workout with someone else’s based on how sweaty you are, because there are so many factors that go into it! Just enjoy your workout, put your all in to it and you will have the best workout possible 💪

DAY 13 of the @the.insulin.type #happydiabeticchallenge - Diabetes & Mental Health

Diabetes can be a condition that takes over your life... if you allow it to!

Constantly stressing over keeping your blood glucose in range, not have a hypo or hyper, making sure you have planned ahead and have everything you need and worrying about what others think can have seriously negative affects on your mental health.
It’s easy to say “be #positive” but that’s not always possible!

We believe in a simple philosophy, where taking ownership, empowers and enables you to succeed with the management of your diabetes.
#takecharge of your life and make yourself accountable for how you live it

#takecontrol of your diabetes. Learn as much as you can, as knowledge is power. The more you understand your condition the less it can surprise you.
#takeaction and prove people wrong, do what you want to do and enjoy the benefits of what goes along with it

Our #bagoflife is merely a tool to help you do this by allowing you to carry everything you need in the one place and giving you the confidence to get active.
