5 Day Slim Down: Day 1

ImageHello ladies! I just wanted to do a quick post about my experience with Day 1 of the 5 Day Slim Down.

First things first, I woke up late today, so all my meals were shifted backwards time-wise. This means I missed some meals ;(

Today’s breakdown went as follows:

– Woke up, had the bombshell spell (yum!)
– Went for a 30 minute walk
– Ate a meal 1 of the “Banana Split” sans carob chips (I supplemented 1 cup blueberries instead)
– Had my “tankini” of Trilogy Kombucha (by far my favorite)
– One piece was 1 cup grapes and 1/2 a kiwi
– Meal 2 was the spicy mustard wrap, my vImageversion had chicken. I also had 5 strawberries and green tea.
– Meal 3 (officially at 9pm) was the remaining 1/2 of my kiwi

And that was it! I know it’s not a lot, but I ate every 2-3 hours and my day didn’t “start” until 12pm for meals.

I also didn’t get to work out this evening/late afternoon because I worked a closing shift. Bleh!

I hope everyoImagene had a great day! Also, if you haven’t seen it, Karena and Katrina announced the Bikini Challenge winners at ToneItUp.com! The winners were amazing choices this year, and two of the four were my favorite gals Sophie Howl and Laura Sacco <3!!


Hello and Welcome!

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 138 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 Educator
