10 Year Diaversary and the Top 5 Things I’ve Learned from 10 years with Diabetes

I finally received my Lilly Diabetes 10 Year Award! It’s crazy to think that I was diagnosed with diabetes 10 years ago! My life has changed pretty substantially over those 10 years. I’ve moved to NYC and back. I’ve gotten married, bought a house and had a baby. Despite also having PCOS and Hashimotos, I’ve been […]

Loading Player 3…

I feel like I have not posted a blog in FOREVER. This is probably one of the longest no writing stretches I’ve ever been on. My last post was in August… woah. I have not been posting on Instagram, or Facebook, my Facebook groups, or keeping up with the rest of my social media either. […]

Crossfit Wins the Douche-Bag Award of the Week

If you haven’t heard already, Diabetics and Diabetic Advocates have been in an uproar on Twitter over some hugely insensitive, dumb-ass tweets that Crossfit posted. I typically avoid Twitter feuds as if my life depended on it… but I couldn’t let this one go. I was appalled at Crossfit’s ignorance. I also asked myself repeatedly […]

Fitting In While Getting Fit

We all want to feel like we fit in. As a plus size person, there are moments where your size can really make you feel a out of place. I know that going to the gym, and playing sports, really was a situation used to make me feel like I stuck out like a sore thumb. […]

The Diagnosis

Well, last week was full of really surprising information. Not least of all was my lab results / Diagnosis I’ve been waiting on for months! First things first. My Adrenal Hormones came back normal! YAY! I’m going to attribute that to the Adren-All supplements, extra rest, clean eating, and reducing my intense workouts in favor […]

Let’s Talk About Babies…

I am pretty sure that not a day has gone by since we have gotten married that someone has not asked me when we are going to have kids. Holy crap, if I had a dollar every time someone asked me about babies, I would be so rich… like own a summer home in the […]

I’ve Fallen Off The Wagon And I Can’t Get Up!

So, I’ve definitely fallen off of the healthy wagon in the last couple months. Part of it was just a chain effect – since I wasn’t able to work out (because of the extreme exhaustion due to Adrenal Fatigue, and possible PCOS and/or Thyroid disorder) I noticed that my diet was slacking too. Not that […]

Colds and Coasters

One of the things that you don’t expect when having diabetes is having the crazy highs and lows that accompany getting sick. Even something like a seasonal cold can bring on a crazy roller coaster of ups and downs (even PMS can bring it on!). It doesn’t matter how many times I have gotten a […]

Diabetic Tips and Resources

I have been asked several times over the last few years of being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, what good tips or advice can I give to staying very well controlled. I’m going to give you what, in my opinion, have been the biggest changes in learning to live WELL with Diabetes. (This really applies […]

TBT: The Diabadass Challenge for Diabetes Awareness Month

Better late than never, right? I’m throwing it back all the way to last month! The month of November (if you didn’t know already) is national diabetes awareness month! It’s a month to try and educate the general public and to raise funds for research. I didn’t know a THING about diabetes until I had it, […]
