I love when these two fun, sweet, happy, funny, lovely, mischievous munchkins come to visit the office 💙💙 Don’t worry, they also totally love me even if it doesn’t look like it 😂 #BFFs#HenryandRoseOnTheRoad#livebeyond
i completely SHOCKED myself today. literally had no idea my body was capable of this🤭 had no idea i could do a wide grip pull up never mind a kipping(the beginning swinging motions) pull up! seriously, i feel like this came out of NO where! i did it a few times just to make sure it wasn’t a fluke😂
it’s no where near perfect( so all you cross fitters be nice 🙈), but when we were doing it at first i literally was too scared to even attempt the pull up part because in my head “i knew i couldn’t do it.”( swipe right for a reflective video of what i looked like 😂) it was total fear of failure, fear of looking stupid, and just taking the easy route.
i’m so glad the people around me pushed me to try it.
Sometimes all it takes is one other person believing in you so you can let go of that script in your head and start believing in yourself.

🇺🇸A little appreciation for my husband who has been always willing to do whatever it takes to make me feel calm and safe. He is not only good with me when I am having a low blood sugar, and he gets up even in the middle of the night to get me something sweet AND stays awake the whole time to make sure I feel better. But he also helps me when I am having a stressful day. Is so good to have someone who stays by your side in the good and the bad moments. 😍
PS: Missing the sun. Missing this place ☀️ ——
🇧🇷 Um momento de apreciação pelo meu marido! Ele sempre se preocupa com o meu bem-estar físico e mental. Ele levanta no meio da noite pra me trazer algum doce se minha glicose está baixa, e fica acordado até ter certeza que a glicemia está normal. Ele não só me ajuda com isso, mas procura me animar sempre que estou tendo um dia difícil e estressante! Nada melhor que ter um companheiro nos momentos bons e ruins! 😍
obs: que saudades desse lugar e do sol!! ☀️
When I wake up and my heart is pounding like it wants to jump out of my chest, I already know what I'm in store for. Yep, a blood sugar of 50, right as soon as I open my eyes. My go to is always juice boxes and sour patch-- not my idea of breakfast, but it brings me back to a normal level rather quickly. I know things like this aren't ideal, and pictures like this aren't the best to look at, but... this is real life. This is type one diabetes at its finest. Striking you at any point and at any time. It honestly actually scares me and makes me really upset that this type of thing can and will happen to you when you are sleeping. The shortness of breath, the confusion, the sweats, it's all so real. This is the reality of type one, this is something I deal with and thousands of others deal with regularly. Could you imagine having to pep talk yourself while your body is basically giving out on you? It's tough, and because I get through it each and every time, I believe that makes me the fighter that I am. I'm sharing this picture to show you also what type one diabetes looks like, so the next time you think my life is "easy & manageable" you can take a step back into what my life really is. A battle. But, I'll keep fighting, I'll keep going, because that's just what I know how to do. #typeonelife#type1diabetes#typeonestrong#typeonefighter#insulinpump#insulindependent#pinkpancreas#halfmachine#lowbloodsugar#diabetesisnojoke#keepfighting#dontgiveup#typeonediabetic

more amazing things that happened to me for my birthday 💓 got a philips wake up light 😍😍💡 it gradually brightens and goes from dim and reddish to bright and sunlight-colored and plays one of four “nature sounds” (3 bird sequences and a musical one) or FM radio. trying it out tomorrow! second pic is the gifts from my amazing friends tonight ❤️ 6 of them and they also took me to olive garden 😭💓 third pic is a new route i mastered while rock climbing 😁 its the white route next to the crack; the crack was not part of the route. shoutout again to my bf for an amazing weekend 💓 and the fourth pic is one of two ADORABLE ecards he sent me today ❤️ feeling grateful 💓 even tho bg has been a disaster today and a couple not-so-great things happened today, i am so grateful for my boyfriend, my friends and my family and again, there are some times when 100 mg/dl can’t be the only thing on your mind 💙
Diabetes or any other type of disease shouldn’t be used as a punchline for insensitive “jokes” of any kind. This is Diabetes. It’s pricking fingers, testing your blood sugar all day, taking shots or bolus on you pump, is drinking juice boxes when you’re feeling low even if its 3am and you just want to sleep, is having headaches and bad humor when your blood sugar is high. Is being the best pancreas you can possibly be no matter how tired you are. T1D is an autoimmune disease caused when your cells attack the wrong cells, in this case the beta cells that produce insulin in the pancreas, its NOT caused by eating too much cake. I’ve heard so many jokes like “ill probably end up with diabetes after eating this cake”, or “tastes as sweet as diabetes”. Diabetes isn’t as sweet as all the jokes out there pretend it to be, and even if its a harmless joke about any disease, it’s not funny. Let’s be sensitive when making jokes and not use a disease as part of the funny statement or joke❤️
• ¿Por qué nunca debemos de usar la Diabetes ni ninguna otra enfermedad para chistes? Primero es irrespetuoso y un poco insensible. Y después por que esto es Diabetes: Es pincharse los dedos, medir los niveles de azúcar en sangre todo el día, inyectarse cada vez que comemos o hacer un bolo en la bomba, es beber cajas de jugo cuando se te baja el azúcar incluso si son las 3am y lo único que quieres hacer es dormir, es tener dolores de cabeza y mal humor cuando tenemos el azúcar alto. Es ser el mejor páncreas que podamos ser todo el tiempo sin importar lo cansados que estemos. La DM1 es una enfermedad autoinmune causada cuando las células atacan las células equivocadas, en este caso las células beta productoras de insulina en el páncreas, NO es causada por comer muchos confites. He oído tantas bromas como, "me va a dar un coma diabético por tanto dulce", o "sabe tan dulce como la diabetes". La diabetes no es nada dulce y aunque sea una broma inofensiva sobre cualquier enfermedad, créanme que no es una broma divertida. Seamos más sensibles a la hora de hacer una declaración graciosa o una broma usando cualquier enfermedad como parte de la broma❤️ #socallediabetic
