It’s Time for a New Year

image

Hello everyone! It’s been a long time since I’ve posted any kind of blog. I needed a break to get school work done and work on some other projects (updates soon).

I wanted to check in as it is the last day of 2012 and share with you my New Years Resolutions for 2013.

First lets take a step back into New Years 2012. At this time last year I had 3 resolutions.

1. Knock my A1C Down a few Points.

2. Become more organized.

3. Lose some weight.

I accomplished 1 & 3.. Let’s just face it I will never be organized.

1.) My A1C this time last year was 7.5. By February of 2012 I dropped to 7.2! It was great, I was feeling great but was also battling quite a few dangerous lows. That’s when I had my emergency unconscious low and it was scary. After recovering from that I was afraid to be aggressive with insulin doses. As a result my A1C is currently 7.4. Which isn’t bad but I was a bit disappointed.

3.) Back in December of 2011 I weighed a little over average weight for my age and height. I didn’t feel healthy and I felt really “weighed down”. I worked hard and exercised and watched my calorie intake and I am pleased to say as of today I lost 14.3 pounds this year! It really feels like a great accomplishment. Even though I now have a obsessive habit of weighing my self daily it feels great to see lower numbers on the scale.

I have developed a new relationship with my body this past year and I feel great about it. I plan on keeping all of last years accomplishments going!

This brings us to this years goals. (Drum Roll Please!)

1.) Bring that A1C down even more.

To be more specific lets say by the end of this year I want to be at a 7.0 or lower.

2.) Keep a decent GPA

Something that I don’t talk much about online is my new obsession with being on honors. Oh it has been difficult balancing Diabetes, school, and work, but I believe I can do it!I started at a 4.0 and slid down to a 3.75 and I want to either boost it back to a 4.0 of keep what I have.

3.) Eliminate Meat from my diet.

Honestly I don’t think that this will be a very difficult one for me. My relationship with meat has been pretty negative for a few years. I just haven’t been too fond of too many meats lately. I think eliminating most meats will be okay but there are a few I do love. (I’ll miss you bacon!!)

There are the three! I will keep you updated as to how these are going. I want all three to be successful so much so admitting my defeat may be difficult. We’ll see how it goes.


Wish me luck! Have a great New Year’s Celebration.

If you feel so inclined, let me know what your New Years Resolution is this year in the comments below (or send me a link to your blog I would love to share!)

Happy New Year!

"Awesome"

What I think is awesome.

What I think is awesome is that I grew up around people who knew what my life was like.

What I think is awesome is that there was a sacred place for me to meet these people.

What I think is awesome is that this place still exists and I am a part of it every summer.

What I think is awesome is that I get to give back to the place that had a part in making me into who I am today.

What I think is awesome is that I have the opportunity to inspire a child’s life.

What I think is awesome is that this hardly feels like a job and I still get to add it to my resume.

What I think is awesome is that I get to meet with my “coworkers” today and plan out the week at my sacred place.

What I think is awesome is that I am a part of Camp Granada. The place that has been a HUGE part of my life, my sister’s life, my families’ lives, my friends lives and many children’s lives for many years past and many years to come! 

That’s what I think is awesome.
