Back to the Basics

It’s Been a While…

Hi Everyone! I’m back with a new blog post. Let me go ahead and dust the cob webs off. I took a brief hiatus from my posts since the summer of 2019. I thought it was important to re-engage in the blog to provide an update to my followers on my status.

So, my big update … Read more


Over the past several months I have started going to weekly high intensity kettlebell workouts. I’ve always worked out on a consistent basis, but my recent kettlebell workouts have brought me back to my high school football days.

Some Answers For You!

As promised, I wanted to create a post about the common questions that I have received over the years from all walks of life. These questions have come from friends, family, other T1Ds, T2Ds, and parents of T1Ds.

Not Worrying About the Lows

It’s always interesting talking with people about my situation. The average non-diabetic has heard of diabetes, but what they believe as truth sometimes makes me laugh.

No I Will Not Pass Out…

Trying Out New Tech

First off, thank you everyone for your support with my blog post from last month. It was great hearing everyone’s support of my 5 year milestone of staying off of medication as a type 1 diabetic. I appreciated all the kind words.

The Holidays are a very fun time that I’ve always enjoyed. However, back in 2013 I received the news that I had type 1 diabetes right before New Years, which wasn’t a fun way to start the year.

Early on soon after diagnosis, each day was stressful while I was trying to understand the disease and drastically modify my diet … Read more
