New Year, Champs please.

Dec 31, 2016

So every year we all make New Years resolutions , we swear we will keep.  Sometimes we do, and well sometimes we just forget all about those pesky promises we intended to follow through on.

EVERY year I say I am going to work out.  I am going to be more active.  I am going to move more, lose weight, and eat better.  This past year I have actually kept the promise to myself.  It feels good.  Do not get me wrong, I take weeks off at times, and maybe months LOL .  What is most important to me is that I have found a way to get myself right back on track. I have once again made this my resolution for 2017.

The thing that pushes me is the fact that bettering my health through exercise is only going to be  beneficial to so many aspects of my life.  My sugars are better, my anxiety, my mood, blood is pumping releasing endorphins.  It is really all a win.  Not always but I am going for it.   Sometimes I battle myself to actually work out, but it always the most rewarding feeling when I am finished.


Some other resolutions I am trying to keep is to put myself first more.  I can not always be  available  for everyone all the time.  There has got to be a balance.  You can be an amazing friend/person and still take time for yourself  and decompressing.  I am a highly emotional person in the sense I will soak in immediately what is going on around me.  So I have learned to live a little more on a balance.  Its hard being a tad of an emotional sponge.

And less social media.  I feel I spend way too much time on this.  I do not like how much time I spend on it, scrolling, liking, comparing.  Sometimes it is just way too  much.

That being said I do want to acknowledge that I am so thankful for so many people I have met and connected with this year in the diabetic community.  What a  blessing, I remember not really knowing anyone else to share the crazy roller coaster ride that Type one diabetes is.  I look forward to many new friendships in 2017!

All in all I want this year to be about self improvement.  I want to be a better person, wife, friend, sister, daughter.  I hope that the new year brings nothing but beautiful, exciting, new experiences for you all.  For anyone reading this, thank you.  Happy NEW YEAR! Be safe! I am looking forward to a fresh exciting start to 2017!  CHEERS!
