I realised over the last two months that I have been making some fairly bad mistakes around the way that I count carbs.
Hey All, I've forgotten to post my latest blog posts pertaining to diabetes here, so here is part 4 of working through the desire/understanding the want to live a normal life
I also suggest to read Self Awareness in Care for Diabetes
Thanks all, Paul
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that within being diagnosed with…Continue

Random injection comes from the lazy character where I am too lazy to efficiently calculate the amount of carbs that I am eating within a meal or within a snack and I inject an estimation on what I am eating based on past memories of what I ate at what time and what I injected at that point, or it is…Continue
Management by Objectives is a business concept made popular by Peter Drucker of Claremont Graduate University. It’s a fairly simple concept, but extremely important: if you don’t consistently measure the results of an activity or process, the activity or process will get out of hand and lead to poor results. Companies or businesses who create metrics for measuring such activities will find themselves more naturally improving those activities or processes and thus improving their…Continue

A trip to the hospital led Kirk Kenyon to reevaluate what was important to him… 5 years after being diagnosed with type 2. Now he’s an A1C Champion spreading the word of hope and goal-setting. His story is a great one for those who may have doubts! Read the full post at Discuss Diabetes here.
As a Diabetic, I know the importance of including good fats in my diet as well as minimizing the bad. That being said, there is one fat in particular that not only doesn’t contribute to diabetes, but it helps regulate blood sugar levels, thus lessening the disease’s effects. The oil I speak of is known as coconut oil. How…Continue
This is a simple nutritional tip whose importance often gets overlooked by many Diabetics – especially those in the early stages of their diagnosis. It begins at the grocery store when you are cruising down the aisles looking to stock up on some good eats. You may already have an idea of what you want…Continue
Exercise ranks as the second most important component (next to nutrition) towards achieving effective Diabetes management. Studies show that by excluding exercise from your daily routine, those without Diabetes are much more likely to develop it, while Diabetics are less likely to achieve adequate Hemoglobin A1c levels and remain in good control. To help curb the effects of a sedentary lifestyle I have compiled three essential exercise variables to keep in mind when planning future…Continue

Establishing a healthy, balanced diet is one of the key factors for achieving successful Diabetes management. In fact, just doing that alone would put a smile on the face of any Diabetic’s dietician. However, that smile certainly wouldn’t last long if you revealed that you have irregular eating habits because for Diabetics,…Continue
Although water should be a staple in everyone's diet, it's even more important for successful Diabetes management. Find out why here --> Nutritional Tip #2: Make Water Your Best…
I just returned from a whirl-wind trip to The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. I was asked to accompany a friend who needed a diagnosis (not diabetic related). So, I thought I would get a 100,000 mile check up and touch bases with my docs.
Once again I was given a thumbs up on diabetes management (I am sure they take into account the 47 or so years of insulin dependance) and my doc sternly suggested that I get back on the blog bicycle and share my gift of mostly happy…Continue

I travelled to Cohasset, Massachusetts, a couple weekends ago for a sprint distance triathlon. I was excited about it because it was actually my first ocean swim race! I mean, I’d been in the ocean before, but never racing, and actually never in the Atlantic.
I flew into Boston on Saturday and drove down to Cohasset (45 min south) for packet pickup. I found the hotel and built up my bike to take it for a spin…Continue
