Ik ben wat nieuws aan het uitproberen, ik heb het van @diabeticmuscleandfitness namelijk: pas trainen als je geen actieve insuline meer hebt. Vandaag heb ik de hele training stabiel gezeten! Ik ben benieuwd of dit de volgende keer ook zo werkt of dat dit toeval was 🧐. To be continued..
Its been a rough night. Was hard to bring up his sugar. It took 1 1/2 hr to bring up his BG. Took 2 juice boxes. It took a tired, sleepy, stubborn fight. Took constant finger pokes..... I just hope his BG goes more up & stable throughout the night. This momma is going to have a restless night.
He was resisting on drinking the juice boxes.... he was crying..... I was crying.
My oldest heard me 😭 & came to me to console me. What kind of mother am I? not being able to be strong for my little WARRIOR, for having my oldest see me break down. I feel horrible inside. .
Well that enough about me.... please pray 🙏 for my son's BG to go more up ⬆️
What excuses are you letting hold you back? For two hours leading up to my workout I was tempted to take an unscheduled rest day, and started to tell myself that's what I needed.
I was so stinkin' tired and low energy. Possibly due to all my lack of sleep while the kids had been sick, but probably even more likely due to my blood sugars staying on the higher end today, basically meaning I had sugar floating around not being turned into energy!
I tossed around the idea of doing a lighter workout. (That way I could still feel good about getting one in, right?! 😉) I reminded myself of why I am doing this. That the days I least feel like it are the days I probably need to the most. That going where it's uncomfortable is where the most growth often takes place!
So, I pressed play on my scheduled workout and you know what? It was mentally and physically tough today, but my body followed where I determined my mind to tell it to, I worked up a sweat and I felt the burn!
Sometimes our reasons for skipping a workout or taking it easy can be legit, but sometimes we have really believable excuses and we've gotta beware of those!
The books and returned, the papers are away, and the syllabi have been deleted! Hello winter break! I decided I’m tired of seeing this room from studying so I’m off to work my first night of break! Not letting the fear of grades stand in my way, let’s do this thing!
Somedays things just click. As I drank out of my #bosslady mug, I realized that it is time. Time for me to be my own boss. No direct sales company, no one above me...just me.
My goal for 2019 is to become a Board Certified Holistic Heath Coach. A place I can combine my alternative health therapies with helping others feel their best. So, has anyone had experience with a holistic health coach before? I would love to pick your brain.
Airports & Salads Part II Vlog. 😸 .
1. It’s all pricey water, unless you got a CVS card 😹
2. Check your BG cause you are dope
3. Eat them veggies
4. Workout in hotel gyms
5. Cry in your hotel room alone b/c you are homesick but happy b/c you are editing on your laptop with a view 🤷♂️ .
Lastly, vlogs have been ZERO! Tired of the same content, new chapter of Diabetes content. Stay tuned, if you want though 👽, I love ya! .
If you’ve been around fitness Instagram you may have seen those little black and green steppers. That my friends is going to change lives, thanks @shaunt ! I’ve seen other coaches trying this new program and I actually thought, oh it’s 20 minutes, I could do that easy. Uhh, what was I thinking?! From this girl who’s worked out with autumn since March! I’m a nursing student who works 2 jobs and coaches, but I still make working out a priority, so I was excited to try out this effective 20 minute workout. Despite the mishaps of a new workout and using a step, this workout was amazing! I tried out the trial today and it worked my cardio, legs, abs and even my butt. What more could a girl want 😍? The added Shaun T motivation at the end! January 14th I’ll be waiting for you! Until then? I’ll see you again preview workout. I’m not waiting for the new year to get my best self, and I want to do it together!

@type.1.nurse heating things up with our large carry-all in 🔥 Flame 🔥 and her great sense of humor! Both necessary with T1D. 😉 #casualtygirl#allmydiabetesshit . . .
‘I have to have a sense of humor with my T1D because my job has taught me that LIFE’S TOO SHORT to take it too seriously. The diabetes thing I found most hilarious this week was when my patient told me I could cure my diabetes by drinking grapeseed oil. That’s all folks.’
Super early morning coffee with a view! As y’all saw yesterday, my blood sugar skyrocketed while I was at work when I had given the proper insulin amount. It eventually came down though and coasted around 90. I guess that’s the best thing about high blood sugar, it eventually comes back down and we get a moment to be thankful for the ability to bring it down with insulin. Something that wasn’t an option 100 years ago. #ThanksBantingandTeam
Ahhh the last year of my 40’s. Not sure what to think about it just yet. When I was first miss diagnosed as a #t2d I doubted I would make it this far. Later when I was diagnosed as a #t1d I was sure I wouldn’t. But here I am. Only some little complications so far. Hopefully if I change some habits I can correct them. Here’s to all of us old farts still pushing through
You don't get "time off" with diabetes. There is no saying "Sorry, I've already clocked out from my shift, so its not my problem anymore." It is a 24/7/365 responsibility. That includes doing a site change at 2am, because you got home from work at 1am, and you won't have time to do it before you leave for work at 5:30am...
---Putting effort into my health meant I knew I had to do this site change tonight and not putting it off until after work tomorrow because I knew my old site was getting sore and my insulin was going bad, I could see my glucose levels becoming more difficult to control. The me a few years ago would have just waited until the cartridge ran out. The me today is actually kinda concerned about my a1c and the possibility of having children one day (and hopefully grandchildren). Diabetes sucks, it's not easy, but its part of who I am and I'm learning that it's never going away so I have to work with it.
-(postscript: it's 2am, I've been awake for 20hrs, and I almost SAT ON THIS NEEDLE because I'm an idiot for not putting the cap back on!!!! Needle is 1inch long btw, that would have HURT.)
🎶 So long and goodnight, so long and goodnight 🎶
20 pounds. That's how much I lost this year. And I've kept it off.
Holidays, vacations, birthdays, two car accidents where I couldn't work out due to injuries, stress from not working, stress from working...you name it, it happened this year.
That's what a plan can do for you- & I can't wait to see how this plan unfolds in 2019!
