About Emily

Some of you may know me as @emilygetsfit on Twitter – for those of you that don’t, I’m Emily and I’m an active Type 1 Diabetic who eats healthy (lean, clean, and green) and is a member of the Tone It Up community.

I wanted to start a casual blog about my current on-going journey with the Omnipod insulin pump, as well as living a healthy life as a Type 1 Diabetic.

Posts you can expect to find would be things like what food I’m eating, workouts I’m doing, how my pump journey is going, and whatever else I think is suitable :)

For those of you that don’t know me, here are some quick facts about me:

  •  I live in Washington state with my boyfriend of 5 years, but am originally from New York City
  • I have been a Type 1 Diabetic since I was 18 months old (I was born 1989)

  • I started using the Omnipod insulin pump July 3rd, 2012 (there’s me on the first day I
    got to wear it!)
  • I have been a member of the Tone It Up community since February of 2012. When I began I originally weighed 150, now I am 135 (weight updated 7/23/12) and counting!

  • I love trying out different foods and different workouts; I also take a lot of pictures of my food to help me remember what I ate for possible recreation down the road
  • Carob chips are my enemy, in a good way ;)
  • I love finding motivation through visual references or music
  • I love photography, but am pursuing a Bachelors of Science in Nursing, followed by a Masters in Nutrition so I can become a Diabetes EducatorE Schumann Foto - View my recent photos on Flickriver

I hope you enjoy reading about my journey! Don’t forget to find me on Twitter @emilygetsfit!

  1. Hey Emily, just found your blog today as I was searching for info on the TIU diet plan and diabetes As a fellow T1 diabetic I’d love to hear how you think the plan works for you and your D! I’m concerned that the two won’t mix so I’d love to learn from your experience. Thanks in advance for your time and consideration
