Hey y’all, Happy New Year! (I know, I know) It’s been a good little minute since I’ve posted last. Let’s just say I put this page and everything else, including my diabetes, on the back burner. It wasn’t the best, but I was riding the waves that life gave me. Luckily, I didn’t self destruct (nobody but GOD)!
But, now I am rededicating my self to this page, my health, my sanity, and the entire type 1 diabetes community! I would say that this is my resolution for 2018 but I suck at those. I will say it’s more so of a goal of mine, for I do have an end goal in sight. So far I have been doing pretty good; I’ve actually started using my Instagram page Being_Betic, created a Twitter CeeTheBetic, and resurrected my Tumblr Ceethebetic. I haven’t gone more than 2 days without being active so I have faith that I can stay active on Being Betic.
Another goal I have is to have an a1c lower than 7%. Right now my a1c s 8.5%. I see my Endo in 2 weeks, so we’ll see how I’m doing then. I’m not feeling to good about it, just because of the burnout I was experiencing.
I even got a new pump! I made the switch from the medtronic 530g to he 670g! I don’t have my sensors yet, but I’m not too stressed for I have to be sure I’m not gonna get lazy once I get the cgm! This is a process I’ll definitely keep you guys updated on!
Also, I know I posted about running a half marathon…..well I COMPLETED IT!!!!! I believe it took me about 3 hours and 28ish minutes! It wasn’t my goal time, but I did finish and I wasn’t the last to cross the finish line. I was soo proud of myself, even though it was hard and I didn’t perform how I wanted to, i signed up for another half marathon in April. I will actually be keeping my training updated here! I also did a bridge run as well!
While I was gone I also finished my first semester of my Diagnostic Medical Sonography program with 2 A’s and 2 B’s! I don’t think I have ever done that well in my entire college career or even high school. I think I am going to start a series looking back on my first semester and my new upcoming semester.
All in all I have exciting things coming my way, and I can’t wait to share it with my #diabuddies both new and old! Life has been good but it’s going to get better in 2018. I can feel it. I know God has an awesome plan for me and my family.
