I miss sugar!

Posted on April 1, 2008 at 12:00am 2 Comments

Okay, It's Monday, and I still have 4 more days to go of great self-discipline :) I should always do this, but baby steps right? So, my bg's have been better-I just need to get back into the habit of taking my insulin before I eat. I've only taken 17 units of novalog all day, when usually I take at least 35. And, I've only eaten 165g of carbs all day which is a big improvement. But, I'm super hungry, and craving chocolate!!! Well, hopefully 2morrow is even a little better :)

.....Gonna go… Continue

a brand new week!

Today's Saturday, and I've decided to make a change for next week and to start preparing myself now.

So, here's my plan: from Monday to Friday I'll go totally off sugar, stick to a carb limit of 210g or less every day (right now I have no clue what I'm doing-a lot more than that), keep track of my bg's every day, and exercise at least 30 min. a day.

Whew! It makes me tired just thinkin about all that :) No, actually I'm hoping this gives me a lot more energy. Right now I just feel… Continue

A little about me...

Posted on March 25, 2008 at 2:51pm 2 Comments

I've been a type 1 diabetic for just about 5 years now. I've been married to the best husband ever for almost 8 years, and have a beautiful daughter who's almost 7.

Of course I never dreamed I'd get diabetes at 21! When I was first diagnosed, I got my A1C down to six something and did everything the doctor told me: measured all my food, did everything at the same time, and took really good care of it. Well, fast forward 5 years to a 8.6, and here I am! A couple years after I was diagnosed,… Continue

A1C Results

Posted on March 17, 2008 at 9:37am 2 Comments

So, I just got my A1C results back. It's 8.6. Pretty bad, but not as bad as I thought it was going to be. I haven't done it in about 2 years, so it was about time! But-I'm gonna try to get it down to 6 in six months!! We'll see....

I'm thinking of going on the pump. If anyone has any suggestions/pro's or con's, I would greatly appreciate it!! I met with someone about the OmniPod the other day and it sounds awesome not to be hooked to a tube...but, I wore the sample pod around and it's kind… Continue

Hi Amy,
So, you are a violinist? I love the Micheal Buble music! You should get out your violin and try to play along! That could be alot of fun! I play violin in the OKC Philharmonic and teach privately. I love music and would consider myself an addict! :) I hope your diabetes control is going well. I am about 6 1/2 months pregnant and my sugars are the best they have ever been in my life. I guess that is what getting pregnant will do! :)

Hey...thanks for the friend reaquest! good luck with getting your bg back on track. I'm sure you can do it. I wouldn't beat yourself up about it either. It's not that high and you are in your 20s. I'm sure I did worse damage to my body in my 20s than that ;) I got the Omnipod a few months ago and really love it, of course I have nothing else to compare it to. It is a little bulky but every time I get up in the night or change my clothes or take a shower, I'm so glad that I don't have to deal with the tether and the pump attached to it somewhow. Let me know if you have any questions about it.
