Make diabetes a priority 💉💉
I used to be very passive in managing my diabetes, doing the same thing every day without thinking about changing my ratios or doing more research into diabetes, happy to let my hba1c run a little high as long as I wasn’t ‘in danger’ of complications. But the harsh truth is if you’re diabetic you are always in danger of complications but the better you manage it the less likely you will have to suffer from any of them. And it’s not always going to be so hard and so much effort, once you spend a month or two really focusing on your levels, concentrating on how your body reacts to different foods, different exercises, schedules, temperatures, stress levels, illness, you will know exactly what you need to be doing in every situation and it will become second nature and no effort. Diabetes has taught me that there is no quick fix for anything, you have to be constantly learning and constantly improving to gain rewards, and the same goes for fitness. If you don’t put in the hard work and the effort now then you won’t see the results you want in the future. Invest in yourself now and the rewards will be so worth it down the line.
