Today I’m celebrating 16 years of excellent health as a diabetic.
We like to call it my “Diabetic Anniversary.”
Some people don’t know why I like to celebrate this day, but for those of you who know anything about diabetes, then you understand it can be very challenging to be a diabetic and be in good health. Since I am both, a diabetic, and in good health, I choose to celebrate my good health to let other young diabetics know that they too can have diabetes and still be healthy.
By the way, I always celebrate my anniversary with my twin sister Jackie and my family…by doing things I don’t normally do….such as splitting New York style Cheesecake with Jackie, after dinner.
Needless to say, I enjoyed every last bite and I didn’t feel the least bit guilty. :)
However, I was a little sad when I realized there was only one bite left, so I did my best to cherish every morsel.
The good news is, my sadness didn’t last long…I went home, changed into workout clothes and totally went for a bike ride with my biking partners, Bear and Gracie. :)
The evening is finally over, my bike ride brings it to an end, but once again, I feel blessed to be able to keep on riding.
P.S. My blood sugar was 102 before eating all this. How cool is this? :)
