Long Time No See…

I know, I know. My last blog post was all about how I was relaunching The Active Diabetic and the big plans I had for future blog posts. Truth be told, shortly after that post I found out I was expecting my second child, and life got incredibly crazy in a very short time! Now I find myself with two young, active, adventurous children and I could not be happier.

Life is definitely not settling down anytime soon, but I can finally find the time to devote to this blog that I love so much.

My goal is to post once a week about a variety of topics: including (but not limited to) balancing type 1 diabetes with pregnancy and motherhood, along with the tips and knowledge I’ve gained in all of my outdoor experiences. If you have anything that you would like to know more about, let me know and I will do my best to gather some information for you!

My second half marathon had to be put on hold thanks to baby #2, but my training is now back on track. My next half marathon is in March 2016, so expect to see some posts about that!

We do a great deal of hiking with our kids and plan to start canoeing and kayaking with them in the near future. In addition to posts about balancing type 1 diabetes in the outdoors, I also want to discuss ways to stay active with kids while balancing it. For me it was a little tougher than I expected! How do you find the time to check your blood glucose levels? How do you eat healthy when you’re constantly on the go? These are things I struggled with a bit since my kids were born, but am now navigating a little better.

This time I mean it…The Active Diabetic is back. I am excited to finally…FINALLY…share all the knowledge I have gained over the years. It may have morphed into a more kid friendly blog, but there will definitely be something for everyone dealing with Type 1 diabetes.

Stay tuned…

The Active Diabetic is back!

It is 2014 and I am ashamed to admit that it has been close to two years since my last post. I recently read another blog entry that referenced this blog and how much it helped connect a fellow diabetic to information and products that made their outdoor adventures easier and more enjoyable. That is what the Active Diabetic is all about! It thrilled me to read it and it inspired me to relaunch this blog and commit to regular posts.

Life has been moving at lightning speed since my last post. I gave birth to a healthy baby boy in October 2012 and he has kept me active and busy ever since! Look for upcoming posts about balancing diabetes and pregnancy and motherhood. It is an incredibly important arena that I have only recently learned about and experienced for myself.

On Monday I start training for my second half marathon. My first half marathon was exhilarating, but truth be told, I am definitely not a runner by nature. It is a challenge for me, but if I can do it you can do it. I plan to post about training for a distance event including how to keep blood glucose levels balanced during training and fueling yourself during a long run. I am constantly in search of fuel (gels, powders, etc.) to use during my long runs that aren’t loaded with sugar. I’d love to hear your suggestions!

Stay tuned in 2014 for information on these topics and many others. If you have any suggestions for topics you’d like more information about, please let me know!

I am so excited to relaunch the Active Diabetic. I hope it continues to be a source of information for you and reinforces the fact that there are so many of us out there trying to live an active, healthy lifestyle with diabetes. I hope in 2014 we can connect with and support each other in our endeavors!
