One of my favorite things are evening beach runs. Before being diagnosed as a Type 1 Diabetic, I was an avid marathon competitor and runner. Now I’m in the process of training for my next marathon, but this time it will be my first race as a T1D! Lots of new things to adapt to. And with the paleo lifestyle that I follow for my blood sugars, it also helps me feel amazing on my runs. Running is a great blood sugar stabizer; however, I always carry my gel packets for carbs and created a loop system so that I can check my blood sugars throughout my long runs. Type 1s can do anything they put their minds to! Stay tuned for updates about my race and progress
In honor of National Coffee Day, a good cup of coffee can be a simple way to start your morning on the right foot. I use organic coffee with unsweetened almond milk as creamer and a pinch of the natural sweetener Stevia or a pump of Starbucks sugar-free vanilla syrup. Yum!
