Emojis and the Endo

I really hope I'm not the only person slightly obsessed with emojis. I'm not sure why I like them so much, but I do. Is that weird? Probably. Who cares?

Emojis are seemingly superfluous little symbols, but they are actually quite useful. I like using them when I want to talk about my CGM. Instead of finding the right lighting to take a picture and hoping the number or arrow doesn't change while I'm trying to snap a picture, I can just say CGM: 108  How awesome is that? I'd say it's pretty darn amazing.

They're also just fun to use. Some days emojis can say more than words ever will. After all, they do say that a picture is worth 1,000 words. (I feel way too cliché right now)

In other, slightly more diabetes related news, my A1C has finally changed, after six months of being the same! It went down 0.3% to 7%, so I'm super happy about that. My next goal is to get it below 7% because I've never had an A1C below that before. I will honestly be happy with a 6.9% because anything below 7% is pretty much new territory for me.

And we all know what going below 7% means. The end of mindless snacking (I type as I'm eating pistachios) and the beginning of *gasp* charting and *even louder gasp than usual* exercise. I'm not exactly what one would call healthy when it comes to fitness. Or food. Or anything really. You may be wondering, "Why on earth is this teenage girl telling me about how unhealthy she is?" Well, it's basically forcing me to actually follow through with the things that must happen to get the A1C I want. You see, I've told you I'm going to do this things, so if I don't do them, I've lied to you. And I don't really want to be known as 'that lying blogger,' so I am now forced to do what I've said I would. See? It all works out for me in the end.

I'll be posting CGM stuff and logs so you guys actually know that I've been doing what I promised weekly, so stay tuned for the joys of teenage blood sugar issues!
