On & Off the Track





"Diabetes management is so crucial because if you fail at it, your health will fail.  The problem with health failing is everything else in your life will undoubtedly be affected." -Sysy Morales
The past few months have been a roller coaster for me--including diabetes & life in general.  Once you're off the track...damn! It's hard to get back on. It's crazy how everything in life affects my diabetes. It's my responsibility to take care of myself...get back on track, and forget the excuses. 
Diabetes management has to be on the top of my priority list. If it isn't, then it will ultimately affect not only myself--but the people I love in my life. 
I do love myself enough to put in that sensor even if it drives me nuts, or say no to the extra unnecessary carbs. Or choose an apple over an Oreo (darn, that's tough!), or go to the gym and get on that treadmill! The time is now.
So when is enough..enough? What do you do to get yourself back up when you've fallen off the track? I know I'm taking the right steps by reading diabetes blogs and blogging myself. I'm buying the healthy foods and I have a plan in mind to replace a bad habit (eating unhealthy) with a good habit. It's a great start and I know I'm strong enough to be in charge of my health and make all of the right choices...so I can live a longer and healthier life!
