It’s been a busy and incredibly hectic week. The good news is that I have completed a draft of another chapter for my thesis, had many productive meetings spanning across the day and into late evenings. Somehow, I’ve still managed to hit the gym (and my 10,000 daily step goal) almost everyday. All of these on 4-5 hours sleep each night is a big win but with some side effects. Like this one for instance.
I realise how the blog title might sound out of context. But since this is a diabetes blog, you know what I mean right?
March 2017 will mark my third year with my beloved insulin pump. Being on the pump has been life changing. Despite the steep learning curve, I couldn’t be happier or feel #blessed to be pumping. Until recently.
Where in the world did December and 2016 disappear to? All I can remember was a lot of shopping coupled with a endless eating. Suddenly, we’re now well into 2017 and it’s moving so fast I can barely catch my breath! As I scroll through the wall of new year resolutions on social media, I started to pen some myself.
For the first time, I found myself in the Emergency Department last night. But it wasn’t for me nor was it anything diabetes related. And it was certainly weird being the support person, rather than the focus of the consult for once!
Since my holiday in Tassie, then Denmark and now Christmas, all routine has gone out the window. Exercise has been knocked off my priority and I couldn’t possibly say no to trying out that scrumptious looking dish! I mean…some of my clothes were even starting to feel a little more snug. This prompted me to start thinking about my weight, which is something I have struggled with previously.
Christmas time is one of my favourite times of the year. The University shut down period means that it is the perfect time of the year to take some time off. Considering the year that has been, I believe this break is well deserved. Especially with the craziness leading up to the break.
A couple of weeks ago, I spent some time in Copenhagen, Denmark. Primarily I was there for a two day conference/workshop hosted by Steno Diabetes Centre and Leicester Diabetes Centre. My trip was made extra worthwhile with a few meetings and catching up with friends. The workshop was one of the best I’ve ever attended. I’ll save that as a blog post for another day. Meanwhile, here are some my snaps from the happiest city in the world!
