Calling in the Troops

I posted about this on Blogabetes and TuDiabetes and I received some feedback..


I am calling on my faithful readers. This Saturday is the ADA walk Team Beat the Bete is doing and I really want to put one sentence statements on our shirts. Either advice for PWD's or misconceptions that people may have about diabetes. I just want to do even more as we walk.

So far this is all I have:

Insulin is not a cure.
There is no such thing as "good" diabetes.
Test. Don't guess.

That's it. Sorry Scott (and Zazzy), the one you suggested may be a touch too PG13 for the team! LOL

So far we have 10 people walking so I really need some help!



You Tube Tuesday #44

The video this week comes from TuDiabetes. It is a short but very powerful clip that I hope you show to everyone you know.

But, before you press play, you should know that a very VERY awesome kid I know took being Ninja to the next level. Check out the blog post at Danieldoo first and then (with Daniel in mind) watch the clip.

That should make the message even more clear.

My Saturday Afternoon

This Saturday my wife and daughter went over to Temple City (about a 20 minute drive) to check out a little town fair. We both graduated from TCHS so we thought it would be fun to check out the crafts, entertainment, and see if we would spot and avoid past school mates. :)
There were a lot of cool and not so cool things for sale.

I should have bought this "S" for SuperG but I thought the flowers were a little frilly for a ninjabetic.

Ahh and a performance by the "Brighter Side Singers" who rejected this Ninja as a freshman when I tried out. I showed them. I quit choir and became Drum Major. Go Band GO!

And this is a picture of yours truly checking out a booth with lots of cool mosaic pieces. Do you see what I see????????

Okay so Amylia, Shannon, and Kerri this is for you. If you did not see these comments then you must check them out. I was dared by these three to wear my pump in my sock WHILE wearing shorts.

The moral to the story?

Ninjas are suckers for dares.


Weight Watchers - Update

I kind of knew this week would not be good. I was at a retreat for 4 days this weekend and ate like, the old ninja. Oh well, I am not letting it get me down. I will kick ass next week!

Gain - 3.8lbs

Total lost - 23.6lbs

On to next Saturday! Woot!


Allison's Article

Earlier in the year, Allison Blass (Blass rhymes with gloss) wrote a great article about Diabetes Blogs in Diabetes Self Management magazine. If you have diabetes and do not have a subscription to this magazine, I would suggest you sign up. It is always filled with great articles, information, and recipes and I don’t know about you but I am always looking for the next yummy thing to eat.

The article is now on the Diabetes Self Management website so if you have not read it, please check it out!

She interviewed Penny and Rachel about their blogs and how blogging has affected their lives. I think a Ninja also slipped in there too. She also writes about how to start a blog so those lurkers out there who have thought about writing may want to take a stab at it.

If you have read it I still think you should check out the Diabetes Self Management site. There are lots of good things to check out just like the magazine!
