D365 Day 7


I tend to eat very healthy well balanced meals. Also - over the past six months I have been eating 90% local foods.

I got home on Friday - and realized that the only local food I had in the house were potatoes, onions, and a single green pepper. Luckily I had a canned some tomatoes early this fall - and was able to throw together this very carbs heavy dinner.

I called the dish 9.6 after the units of insulin I had to take to cover it. It is going to be a long carb heavy root vegetable based winter!

D365 Day 6


I love my diabetes testing kit.

I find them at Kate Spade. This is my third one.

D365 Day 5


Health Disparities. It is an issue that my boss works on. I'm luckily that I get the opportunity to occasionally help others with diabetes get the help they need.

The article can be found here
The sentence read “grants will, for example, allow Worcester's health department to open an office of healthcare equity, pay for a mobile information van that helps consumers better understand the complexities of doctor's recommendations, and develop methods for better educating patients about diabetes.”

D365 Day 4


I hate to log. It is my diabetes nemesis.

D365 Day 3

Late Night

I hate falling asleep on the couch - then after dragging my sleepy self to bed - realizing I need to change my pump before actually getting into bed.

D365 Day 2

Seaview and Parker.

I went for a run at my parent’s house this morning. I love to run in their quiet Cape Cod town.

Instead of taking my usual right hand turn back to their house on Wianno Ave. I went left to follow Seaview Ave to Parker Road. It added 1.5 miles to the run.

It occurred to me as I made my way down Seaview, the sun shining on the ocean and through the trees, that I wasn't running for my diabetes.

I run because it is peaceful, quiet, and beautiful. I run because it feels good.

I run in spite of the diabetes; in spite of the blood sugar drops, the lifesavers and dexcom in my pocket, and the need to carry my cell phone.

D365 Day 1

The Perfect Day.

What could be a better way to jump into the diabetes photo pool than with a day in range.

80 to 160

It's a start.
