Getting prepared for my annual diabetes check-up next week. My HbA1c blood test reflects my average blood glucose levels over a 12 week period. I used to think this confirmed whether I was a 'good' or 'bad' diabetic. This is certainly how it felt every time I went to the endocrinologist. I know now, it's simply a guide. A snapshot. A number.
I work damn hard to #livebeyond Type 1 diabetes & no matter what the outcome of this blood result is, I know that will always continue. 👊💪 #type1warrior #hba1c #donotletitdefineyou #type1diabetes #t1d #t1dmama #annualcheckup #masteringdiabetes #t1dmastery #growthmindset #diabetes #itwillnotwin #weneedacure

On Mondays I always convince myself I’m too busy to get on my mat. Emails, reports, conference calls, oh my! It’s easy to get overwhelmed. Today I closed my laptop and forced myself to get on my mat and I can already tell it’s gonna be fab week. I hope yours is extra splendid, too!

🤦‍♀️Monday 🤦‍♀️Monday 🤦‍♀️Monday!
I try really really hard to be✨ positive ✨ (especially about diabetes), but I also try and be really really R E A L with everyone on here. Type 1 Diabetes sucks and it frustrates me daily😩, and brings me to tears weekly 😭. It’s easy to compare your struggle with this disease to someone else’s but know that it’s never sunshine ☀️ and rainbows 🌈 for me either.
The day I took this photo, I had high BGs all day, felt sick and like I would do anything to make #T1D disappear from my life (I also think it was my fault or something like I forgot to bolus earlier in the day). But I remember thinking, okay- as soon the BG stabilizes, and I have some good food (I ❤️food), I’ll go for a walk 🚶‍♀️or enjoy the sunshine in someway or another.
ANYWAYS 🌈❤️ Have a fantastical week and never be afraid to reach out to me during those low (pun intended) moments!

Stop it. I love you.

So I know Monday’s are supposed to suck and we’re supposed to hate them BUTTTT.... it’s hard to hate Monday’s when you love what you do 🤷🏻‍♀️😭 My day started off by teaching 2 jam-packed classes (special shout out to my 12:00 DP babes- you ladies are straight FIRE 🔥🔥) and ended with a double- classic then empower- and getting my ass handed to me (TWICE 😅) by the legend, @jackie_randell 💯 I feel good. My body feels good. My mind feels good 🙏🏻 I feel stronger, more emotionally present, and CAPABLE. Days like today remind me why I fell in love with @pure_barre in the first place ❤️❤️❤️ So that begs the question: what are you doing today FOR YOU? Monday isn’t over yet... get out there! Your body needs you 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻 #mondaysdontsuck

It only took 4 tries, but I finally made it successfully all 3 days with a pod on my leg!!! .

Episode #017: Dave Holmes
As a 38 year old triathlete, @daveholmes was confused when he was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes just days after completing the 2009 New York City Marathon. Fast forward six years later, after finally being diagnosed correctly, Dave found support from the Type One Run community to help conquer the real dangers of exercising—and living—with type 1.

Last week, I mentioned how my dog Comet saved my life at some point in the 9 years I’ve lived with T1D. Well, here’s how:
When I was in Junior High, I didn’t care about my Diabetes. I went through a MAJOR burnout period and let my numbers do their own thing. I had only had Diabetes for 2-3 years, but at that age, it’s really hard to be responsible with a disease that is so important to care for. I had always wanted a dog, but was the only one in my family who liked dogs. So since I was 2 y/o, the answer was no. When I was about 14, that’s when my Diabetic health was SO bad, to the point where I had the highest A1C I’ve ever had: 9.1. I know it’s not terrible, but for me, that wasn’t an option. SO, my mom was so scared and desperate for me to heal and have better control over my Diabetes. She then decided to tell me how if I were to bring my A1C down to 7 in about 6 months, I could finally get a dog. When I say I worked my butt of, that would be an understatement. Fast forward to my last A1C test before my deadline and ... boom: 6.7! I made it, I reached my goal and more. I then went ahead and adopted my pal, @cometthegolden. I believe he is the reason I am still alive as if I didn’t have a motivation as big as him, my health and A1C results would continue to get worse. Sometimes, we all need something to shake our world before we achieve success in our health. Take your time and know that things will turn out better than you think! My pal, my friend, my companion. Since that time, my health continues to improve and Comet is always watching out for me, making sure I’m feeling okay. It’s like he knows I’m Diabetic. Blessings upon blessings.

🚨 Diabetic followers, I need your advice! It’s only the beginning of summer, but I’m already having problems with my numbers and swimming. When swimming, I suspend and take off my pump, and I always end up low when I get out of the pol, no matter what my number was when I started. I proceed to treat, them spike about half an hour later. Anyone else have this problem? What would you recommend I try?
