I refuse to let DIABETES kill me!

Hi! My name's Shel, I'm a 39 year old type 1 diabetic. I've had issues with my sugar levels for a while now. I'll be fine for weeks and then all of a sudden it's like all hell breaks loose and things are haywire for a couple weeks.

I've got 2 Basset Hounds who I adore and they are truly my children......lol! Part of my exercise plan is walking with them every night but I know I need more than this to keep my body in decent shape. I just can't get motivated for that right now. Trying to keep myself healthy is about all I've got time for right now.

My Goals:
I'm still trying to lose some weight, but more importantly to just become healthier and lower my blood sugar levels and get my diabetes under control.

My Program:
I'm using my treadmill 3 times a week....trying to run a little more but usually do a lot of walking, but any movement is better than nothing.

I'm also doing strength training 2-3 times a week.

Working on stretching too!

Personal Information:
I love hiking, camping and spending time with friends and family.

I have been a Type 1 Diabetic for over 20 years and have no complications now but I worry that this could change.

I work for a construction company in the Greater Chicago area but am originally from Ft. Wayne, Indiana.

Other Information:
It's just another day in Paradise.

HA! day one on the spark wheel is today. i exercised both saturday and sunday and i plan on getting on the treadmill as soon as i get in the door today! so here i go again....starting over again.

Thank you for the blog posting. It's a hard time, but I know things will get better... including this stress. :)
