Inspiring You to Live Happy and Healthy

New Week. New Resolutions.

Yes, it may be the middle of September. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t start new resolutions. It can be pretty easy to lose sight of what our New Year’s Resolutions were. Just because you faded off track doesn’t mean that you can’t start again. You don’t need the start of a new year […]

Cheers to Game Day

If you have any type of social media, you’re now well aware the beloved American football season is back in action. Whether you’re an avid fan, could care less, or hate the sport it can be hard to avoid it during this time of year. Between it showing at the bars, friends talking about it, […]

Squeeze Your Way Back To School

Labor Day weekend is officially done, and the kiddos are headed back to school. Parents, this is your time to relax a little bit. Your little munchkins will be busy bees with class, homework, and play dates. Sit back, put your feet up, and take a deep breath. Things will get chaotic quickly, so enjoy […]

An Afternoon With MN #Insulin4all

A calm, partly cloudy afternoon made for the perfect Sunday to gather at the Centennial Lakes Park in Edina, MN. The breeze blowing softly and the sound of people walking their dogs with their children. It seemed like a normal Sunday at the park. However, this day was much different. At the amphitheater was a […]

Organize Your Life (And Health)

The Minnesota State Fair, Labor Day, and back to school is all upon us (insert excited, nervous laugh because the year is going by too fast). Summer is quickly coming to an end and already has for many students. Some might be lucky enough to have one last weekend of freedom. I never got to […]

Discreet At The Dinner Table

If you tuned in to our Facebook Live video yesterday, then you’ll already know a little about this blog. You can just tell your friends that you’re psychic and knew what GMS was going to talk about. This blog is about all things dinner, food truck festivals, brunch, and any place that involves food. If […]

Cool Down This Summer

We’ve talked about our Summer bucket list and all the things that we want to get done before the leaves start to change color. No, I still haven’t been to my drive-in movie. *sigh* I’ll get there though! Typically, a lot of Summer activities include water sports in the Midwest like tubing, wakeboarding, water skiing, […]

Dogs With Diabetes

When we think of diabetes, we typically think of humans. Unfortunately, a lot of people still think it’s due to lifestyle choices and a diabetic person must be overweight. That is incorrect and offending to many that battle diabetes daily. However, humans are not the only ones that can get diabetes. Animals can also get […]

A Hard Pill To Swallow

Life can be a hard pill to swallow some days. Things seem to go awry all at the same time or it’s that day where you just keep spilling everything (me this morning…. Insert eye roll. I definitely came into work with an avocado mark on my shirt today). The saying, “it’s a hard pill […]

Rock Your Temple Tips On Your Glasses

Approximately 75% of humans in America use some sort of vision correction. Whether that be glasses, contacts, or a form of Lasik eye surgery. The vast majority wear glasses because they are so versatile. Glasses are used for reading, computers, everyday use, and even fashion statements (insert the classic picture of a hipster wearing clear […]

Motherhood And More

We are back for our second Monthly Spotlight—yay! Being a mother is hard work (I don’t personally know this, although my puppy is a handful. All I can think of is my mother raising me and two other daughters…. Can you imagine all the unnecessary drama that came through our house growing up?! I bet […]

Syringe Safety While On The Go

Can you believe it’s already the middle of July?! This summer is just flying by, which means you better start checking things off your summer bucket list that we talked about last week. Did you end up going to that drive-in movie?! Me neither. Being active and doing everything you want to can be hard […]

Baby You’re A Firework

Did you sing Katy Perry this week as the fireworks launched up into the sky? I’m guilty because I totally belched this song out at the top of my lungs and then went oooooohhh aaaaahhhhh as the firework burst into mesmerizing colors. What can I say? Science just fascinates me. Or did you miss some of […]

Buzz Your Way Into Safety

Remember when you were little, and you saw a fuzzy bumble bee and you just wanted to grab it?! It looked so cute and tiny. Eventually, you forgot that it would sting you because you were just so infatuated with how it buzzed around the pretty flowers. So, you do the only logical thing and […]

Keep Calm and VitaCarry On

It’s the first day of Summer and you’re cruising down an empty highway, windows down, throwback songs cranked up. Your dog is sticking his tongue out the window in the seat next to you. You’re headed for a weekend of hiking in the mountains. (Or woods, depending on where you live…there are definitely no mountains […]

Wash Away Annoying Particles

How often do you clean your eyes? I’m not talking about trying to rub the dryness away. I am talking about physically washing out your eyes. Once a day? Once a month? Never? I’ll be completely honest; I have never washed my eyes. Sure, I’ve used eyedrops a couple of times, but not very often. […]

Importance Of A Diabetic Travel Kit

Have you ever left the house and realized that you forgot something super important? Last week I left my favorite scrunchy at home. My super soft, red one…. it’s velvet!! (okay, not super important, but I felt off all day). Everything ended up totally fine because after all, it’s just a hair tie. I’m being […]

TheATeam–Twin Diabetic Girls

The Type 1 Diabetic community is so large, and everyone is doing amazing things everyday (more than just fighting the disease, which is amazing in itself). I have decided to create a Monthly Spotlight where I’ll share about a family, person, or group in the diabetic community in the hopes to bring everyone a little […]

Keeping Prescription Medications Away From Children

In 2015, 440,000 calls were made to the poison control center because children got into medication that they shouldn’t have. There are lots of measures that society has taken to ensure that children aren’t gaining access to medication. The most common one is the child proof covers. However, just because the pills are in a […]

Keep Your Eyes Wide Open

Last week we discussed how many people have diabetes worldwide. Can you tell me what that number was without cheating? Okay, fine I’ll tell you…. over 400 million people worldwide! With many more undiagnosed. This week we are talking about eye care in honor of Healthy Vision Month. Wahoo, tackling a health issue one week […]
