I would like to start by saying I am feeling the best I have felt in two years.  I have had to really listen to myself and my body.  I advocate for my health.  We all need to be in charge of ourselves and the choices for our body.   I have chosen to cut […]

I have this slight obsession with peanut butter. Like I could literally put it into everything and anything.  The past year I have really amped up my cooking and dietary awareness. I want to only put good things into this body of mine.  Between the Type one diabetes and thyroid issues as well as PCOS […]

Hope everyone is staying positive, happy, and healthy!   I was recently having a down, crappy, diabetic funk of a week.  I had to pull myself up by the bootstraps and get in a better place, better attitude, better head space.  It really had me thinking… I really wanted to touch on an issue not […]

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 […]

As I sit here now, I am sad, stressed, scared, humbled and more then anything I am GRATEFUL.  I feel all of these emotions on a daily basis.  I feel them when I see an object that seems blurry,eye pain, or think my vision is becoming distorted.  I feel anxiety about upcoming eye examinations weeks […]

So sorry it has been a bit since I have had a post.  I fell into a little rut, was not feeling great.  I do feel today as tho I have turned a corner. Thats the thing with diabetes.  Sometimes, you just need a time out.  Of course not from insulin injections, finger pricks, but […]

Gosh.. does anyone ever just want the day off from diabetes? I do! I do! Maybe half a day? An hour?  Well I will keep wishing, but since we all know that is just not possible I will just tweak my attitude.  I will practice some positive thinking.  Yes let the positive thinking commence. I […]

I have to report that  I have been feeling so good.. I do not want to jinx myself, but I have been doing well.  My goal for myself is to live everyday the best I can.  I want to live this way in my everyday life, not just my diabetes life.  I have vowed to […]
