She 2017

Practice the pause. When in doubt, pause. When angry, pause. When tired, pause.When stressed, pause. And whenever you pause, pray. -Unknown

As you can see by the limited number of entries, I do not blog often. To be honest, I would love to blog at least once a month because I miss it.  I read Kerri’s  post about not talking about diabetes for one day; I thought this would be the perfect time to blog.

She 2017

She looked in the mirror and did not recognize the woman standing before her.

Her body worn, tummy is pudgy, and clothes fit a little snug.

Self-doubts run rapid inside of her head.

She knows she is not the woman in the mirror.

She knows she is not the thoughts in her head.

She paused.

How did she get here?


Her confidence shaken.

Her spirit and determination will not let them win.

She has a plan.

She looks at herself in the mirror with a smile on her face.

She will prevail.






Here I Go…Again!

I do not know why I created a URL that included diabetes because this blog will not be dedicated to diabetes. I will talk about diabetes when needed, but for the most part, this will be about me. I want to enhance my writing skills, share my thoughts on running, love for reading, passion for cars (my husband is rubbing off on me) and anything else.

I thought about buying a journal; it’s not my thing. I do not know why I love sitting at my computer desk, jamming out to music and typing my thoughts on the web. But,  I’ve missed.



First blog post

I started keeping a person journal which allowed me to get to know myself and have a little one one time with the man upstairs. But, a piece of me missed blogging and sharing. So, I have decided to share weekly and if I do not, I will not be upset with myself. I will share more once I start training for my first half-marathon in May. My blog has diabetes in the URL, but I will not blog about diabetes every single day or every week because there is more to me than a blood glucose meter, a pump, and a CGM.
