Maybe its just me... but I think it’s starting to look a bit better 💪🏻☺️🏋🏼♀️👊🏻 Today’s workout was 20min treadmill warmup + 6*45s intervals @ 11% gradient and 11km/hr pace with 45s rest in between + a gym workout! 😅 Was also gonna swim after work but got a hypo (low blood sugar) which drained me so I’ll have to take a rain check on that swim 😉 // the daughter #dontletamissedworkoutgetyoudown#t1dgivesyoumorechallengesinlife#butivegotthis

Heute waren die 14 Tage wieder um und ein neuer Sensor musste her. Das setzten ist einfach... einfach Nadel einklicken und auf die Haut "schießen". Ich benutze zusätzlich immer noch "Cavilon - ein Pflastersprey" damit das Pflaster besser hält. Scannen tu ich den Sensor mit meinem Handy. So brauch ich kein extra Gerät mit mir rumtragen das Handy ist nunmal immer dabei.
People Nationwide are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as millions suffer from the disease, and many others may have diabetes and not know it!
It is estimated that one out of every three children born after 2000 in the United States will be directly affected by diabetes.
That is why the American Diabetes Association's Utah office and Nationwide is so committed to educating the public about how to stop diabetes and support those living with the disease.
We are here to help bring awareness to Diabetes through Basketball and off the court this Summer with TBT 2018.
After my last good post I wanted to show another side.. today has been awful and so defeating. I’ve never seen 0% in target before 😪 went out for TGI Friday dinner last night and clearly didn’t count my carbs right, spent all night high and it’s been impossible to bring it down all day even though I’ve barely eaten any carbs. Resorted to a brisk walk this evening after work to try and bring it down and luckily that’s helped 🏃🏼♀️ my Libre has been 2-3mmols off my actual BG for some parts of the day so it’s not completely accurate but it’s just overwhelming and annoying when nothing I did seemed to be doing anything. Tomorrow is a new day though and fingers crossed it’s better 🤞🏻days like these really show that I am greater than my highs and lows and will move on and start afresh tomorrow ☺️ #diabetes#diabetic#t1d#t1dlife#diabeteslookslikeme#sugarlevels#freestylelibre#chronicillness
La #diabetes es una enfermedad crónica que se caracteriza por presentar niveles aumentados de azúcar en sangre (glucemia). Una enfermedad crónica es aquella que no se cura pero con un seguimiento y tratamiento adecuado la persona con diabetes puede prevenir complicaciones y llevar una vida normal. #diabetes#nutrición#nutrición#Estética
i’m decently new to working out regularly, but i’m quickly learning how different types of exercise affect my blood sugar. spinning (for an hour) can easily drop me 40-60 pts with no insulin on board (i’ve dropped 200 pts in an hour one time when i was battling a stubborn high and purposefully went in with several units IOB) 🚴♀️ yoga lowers me less, but still 20-30 pts with no IOB 🧘♀️ because i’ve only been taking exercise classes (and not working out on my own) i really want to minimize any lows so i don’t have to miss any part of class or sit out. this is why i try to go into every exercise class around 200. i’ve been pretty successful at avoiding any lows by doing this. here’s last night’s graph. i was cruising around 98 before my spin class (it starts at 6:30 PM), which was way too low for me to go in at. so at around 5:30 i ate a clif bar (45g) with no bolus. it bumped me to 232 and i narrowly avoided a low after class (even with no insulin on board!! i really have no idea why i dropped so much). went to bed at 114. another strategy i’ve used is starting a reduced basal (-40%) around 2 hrs before. i haven’t been as successful doing this as i have been by just eating, but eventually i’d like to figure out how to not have to eat before class just to get my blood sugar up, lol... #t1d is filled with so much trial and error, and after 20 years i still feel like i have no idea what i’m doing most of the time 🤷♀️ however i can’t tell you guys how good it feels to be taking care of my body by exercising. us #t1ds can seriously do anything- sometimes it just takes a little bit more planning and preparation 🤓💪
Do you know someone 60+ who is living with Type 1 diabetes? New for 2018, CIM is excited to introduce a tailored Slipstream Weekend experience for adults aged 60+, who are living with #T1D . Welcome to the prestigious group we like to call… the Platinum Club! The 3-day retreat will include plenty of time in the great Ontario outdoors, hiking, paddling, or just kicking it back by the campfire. As a group, we will dive into diabetes-themed workshops, activities, and discussions as we get to know each other better and grow our local Type 1 diabetes “Platinum Club” community. Help us spread the word! .

Last Wednesday, I went to the ER because I was having an extremely hard time keeping down food along with suffering from some stomach pain. It turned out that in addition to a case of Gastritis, my pre-diabetes developed into full blown Type 2 Diabetes. I was told that with a couple changes to my diet I could reverse it, but that didn’t make the diagnosis any less scary. I’m not going to lie and say that I’m not afraid because I am. As of right now, I’m reading a book that the ER doctor suggested called “How To Reduce Blood Sugar The Warrior Way” and also bought a blood glucose meter. If anyone has any advice, I would love to hear from you. .
I try really hard to encourage this mentality in all type 1s that I meet because diabetes really isn’t the end. It is, in fact, the beginning of a whole new journey. I am a normal 25 year old woman that leads a normal life. I go to work, to the gym, go out with friends and family and generally enjoy myself. For anyone that struggles or lacks motivation, just remember that you are a warrior and you are not alone. Taking five minutes out of your day to manage your diabetes will potentially save years of suffering through diabetic related complications. Make it a habit, part of your day to day routine, not a chore! It could always be worse so grateful that you have an illness that can very easily be managed 💙 #diabetes#diabetesawareness#type1diabetes#type1diabetic#type1warriors#insulindependent#insulininjections#diabetic#managingdiabetes#diabetesmanagement#type1strong
INVISIBLE ILLNESSES - Can you tell we are a pair of diabetics? Who inject 5-10 times a day and test or bloods with finger pricks 8+ times a day? Didn’t think so? Just remember not all illnesses are visible, and someone can fight daily to get through each day.

My health has conquered and won the battle of the priorities! My health concerns don’t go away but I’m certain this journey has helped my energy, blood sugar levels, patience and stamina! My overall health has improved thru daily habits 🏃🏻♀️ 🥤 😴 and an amazing team 👯♀️holding each one of us accountable! .
I tell you this to let you know that I’m here to cheer you on! 📣 📣📣 📣 To see how you are feeling? Could there be room for improvements? Are you willing to be a work in progress??❤️
I know I sure am!!🙋🏻♀️
If your health is important to you then make no excuses. - "I dont have the time"
- "I dont have the money"
- "I have kids"
- "I work all hours"
- "Life is stressful"
- "I don't have time to cook"
- "I don't belong to a gym"
- "I don't have childcare"
- "I am just too busy"
- "I will start tomorrow/next month/next year”
- “when my child starts school I will have time for me"
Sound familiar? Trust me I know the feeling. I am a self-employed business woman. I work early mornings and late nights. I am a mum to two young boys, one under school age. As for money, I have had months before where I had to borrow money just to pay for my food shop so I get it!
But when it comes to my health, my workouts, my nutrition, no question I make time. I make sacrifices (Starbucks! Takeaways! Wine!). I make it work!
You can't put a price on your health. The way I see it I only get one body and I need to treat it right if I want it to be around a while. And I want it to last a lot longer than that expensive manicure or that round of cocktails purchased on the last girls night out. My point? Invest in yourself, your worth it! 💕
Next challenge starts 2nd April. Let me show you how important prioritising YOU is. 21 days of 30 minute workouts and focused nutrition.
