After this post, I’m going to jump back in like a year didn’t just go by without me blogging. But first, I want to say Hi! and I missed you. Those who emailed out of concern-thank you. That meant so much. The blog looks very different because a hacker broke my old blog theme. But there is less pink so that may be a relief.
Lately, I’ve been spending my days reading a ton, unschooling (yes, unschooling) my twin 5 year olds, travelling the country talking to people with diabetes through the A1C Champions program, doing freelance writing, and oh yes, managing my diabetes. In the past year I also have spent much of that time without a computer so I missed a lot. I’m chest deep in uncharted territory and also struggling with the same ole same ole that is diabetes. In the time we haven’t seen each other, I had a dog for about 7 months. A rough collie named Bruce. I don’t want to go into why I don’t have him anymore (nothing dramatic) but will say that knowing him and experiencing so much of each day alongside him has been life changing. Who knew? If you’re a dog person, you’re probably saying “Duh!” “Dogs are amazing!” I get it now. I do. And although he is many miles away, he is still with me each day.
So. Let’s talk diabetes. I could use some help getting caught up with big causes that need support. Shoot me a comment with initiatives you think are worthwhile for people with diabetes?
As for me, my diabetes is pretty good. I’ve slacked off in some ways and tightened my discipline in other ways. I hope those of you who used to come here are doing well, I truly do. I am still a health coach and do it mostly for people with diabetes. I do this over the phone or even over email for those who want a discount (email is a savings). Interested in some kind of health/nutrition/exercise/diabetes related guidance and coaching? Email me at Sysymorales@gmail.com. My coaching style is to meet you directly where you are in your journey. It’s about helping you, specifically, to go where you want to go. It’s not about trying to push you towards a goal that doesn’t feel true to where you are now. Baby steps. Knowledge is power. Compassion and self-love for ourselves and others. That’s my jam.
Posting schedule will average one per week. See you, soon.
