I just completed week ONE of school and did it without taking the bus once! Approximately 5 km a day and a couple other walks were thrown in there. I also managed to eat a freezer size bag of vegetables throughout the week and avoided things like bread, pasta, chips etc. Really, went hard on the green tea - drinking 4+ glasses a day along with approximately 2-3 water bottles throughout the day as well. I decided today that walking is good, but going back to the gym would be even better, not to mention I was secretly missing dancing at Zumba.
|I found this fortune on my walk home the other day. |
It caught my eye and when I read it - I couldn't help
but take it home with me.
Having diabetes has kind of thrown a wrench into the mix by simply being diabetes. I often think about my roommates or friends who work out or eat healthy and never have to worry about checking their blood sugar or in consequence going low or high. Diabetes is for sure an aspect of my life that changes every simple and complex thing that I do. I have gone low countless times this week just due to trial and error and I am hoping as time goes on - I can play around with my pump to the point I am reducing the lows.
For now, I am feeling good and finding inspiration all around me. I am going to lean heavy on the diabetes community out there to give me tips and keep me motivated throughout the journey. I am going to try new things (like the spinach shake I had today...) and get rid of all the negativity that is in my life and just be happy.
