The Thursday Face-off

Well everyone, welcome to Nerdy April's 30th post! Tonight we have a special Face-off...

The contenders: Type 1 Diabetes v. Weight Loss

At the start of the game it was definitely Type 1 Diabetes in the lead with high blood sugar numbers....

Weight Loss seemed appropriate as my weight has slowly been creeping up over the last few years...

So I planned this awesome Weight-Loss strategy, back to basics, with more exercise (5 miles of bike-riding everyday) and fewer calories...at this turn it seemed Weight Loss was in the lead (at least in my mind :-)...

Then Diabetes came back with the ever-present low blood sugars...so I came back with my sneak-attack play of changing my basal rates...Weight Loss was back in the game, ready to kick some Diabetes butt...

Now it seems Weight Loss is letting me down...dangit why did I gamble illegally on you, Weight Loss? (jk...of course my logic wouldn't let me bet on a silly thing like Weight Loss! Ha!)

In fact...without numbers (what kind of lady would I be if I let you know my weight :-) here is a graph of Weight Loss's recent scores for the past 10 days...




But the Diabetes' Blood Sugar scores are looking more like this...




I know it looks crazy, but actually my Diabetes Blood Sugars have been a lot better since I started my exercise routine (yay!). But the Weight Loss...hasn't really been happening...so right now its:


10 Points for Diabetes being better controlled!!!

4 Points for Weight Lost

    Love!!

  2. Yeah, I don't have type 1 diabetes, yet the weight loss thing still isn't happening. I think that you look great. Yes I saw you in your swimsuit at the lake and there really is not much to complain about.

MCM - Certified Mom

This morning I woke up early, the baby monitor was chirping just a few minutes before my alarm was set to go off. Chris graciously rolled out of bed and set out to re-insert Otto's paci. Meanwhile, I pressed my clothes, curled my hair and brewed some coffee - my standard pre-console routine. After a quick breakfast Zara peeped her head over the railing and I heard a gentle "mama" echo down the stairs. It was still dark, but this little one was ready for her daily breakfast of oatmeal and milk in preparation for a fun day at swim lessons and school. As she sat, eating her "oatsss" (as she calls them), I whirled around the kitchen prepping bottles, gathering outfits for school, and ensuring all the swim lesson supplies were set out. It's hard leaving Chris to take care of both kids in the morning (#momguilt) so I try my best to complete as many get-ahead tasks as possible, in hopes his morning goes smoothly. 
This morning schedule description may seem mundan…

MCM - On Call

It's definitely Monday. Otto spit up on my work clothes this morning, I forgot to brush my teeth and I sat down in my car forgetting to clean the layer of sand from the beach yesterday. Whoops. But, it's also MONDAY!!!!! Which means you get a special look behind the proverbial curtain of Mission Control in a series I'm dubbing "Mission Control Monday". We all need a little "boost" (pun intended) at the beginning of the week, so why not get it from the heart of Manned Spaceflight itself - NASA's Mission Control
This week I am highlighting the little known fact that sometimes, as an ADCO Specialist, I am scheduled to be "On Call". It just so happens I am "on-call" this week! Even though we don't have a sweet 1990's pager, the ADCO on-call is a Specialist with the cumbersome responsibility of having their cell phone strapped to them at all times. Yes, even during the night. Yes, even when you have a 3 month old. Yes, just…

Experience the Kennedy Space Center

Manned spaceflight is not a challenge forged from one molten idea - it's not a put-this-in get-that-out equation - it's not a sport for the isolationists. The notion that it was "one man's passion" or "one nation's resources" that got us to this engineering moment is simply false. And the idea that alienation could ever lead to exploration is impossible. There is likely no other industry or singular goal so intentional about teamwork - from employing teachers to technicians, soliciting standard to specialized natural resources, planning short term and long, investing in ideas and inspiration, training fresh-outs to experts, and communicating technically and politically. Tangibly, the manned spaceflight challenge crosses borders and age and gender, there are pieces of its presence spanning the entire globe, and beyond! 
One of those spots - notable for it's history as the last piece of Earth many astronauts touched before launch - is the Kennedy…
