I love this hashtag. And I'm glad that Miss Idaho's pump has made an appearance in NZ media! http://www.stuff.co.nz/life-style/wellbeing/10291216/This-beauty-queen-bikini-has-everyone-talking Here's mine :)
It's amazing how the pain of exercise can make you feel so damn amazing! A while ago I decided I would be a SERIOUS runner. I spent some time researching what I needed to do to become this. I told my boyfriend I that would do a half marathon later in the year. Annnd about 5 or 6 weeks ago I finally stopped researching and went for a run. I started the Couch 2 5K program and continued with that. I've just done Day 3 of Week 4. Today's run consisted of a 5min warm up walk, 3 min running, 90 sec walking, 5 min running 2min,30 sec walking and 5 min running. And I did it. Even though I find running very hard and I haven't been for a run in over a week. I feel amazing!
For a long time I tried to hide my Diabetes, from friends, colleagues, guys I was seeing. Most of all, I tried to hide it from myself. But life doesn't work like that! I'm attempting to look after myself better and reach out to the Diabetic Online Community by writing about my experiences with Diabetes.
The short story is.. I'm 26 years old, diagnosed in 2003 with Type 1 Diabetes. I'm from New Zealand and as of the 14th of October 2013, I am using an Animas Vibe to manage my diabetes. Big changes! For now, this blog is a place for all my diabetic related thoughts. Please leave a comment if you're reading this, or flick me an email on lifewithinjections @ gmail.com. Would love to hear from others! :)
