YFT1 Goes To A Yoga Retreat – Review of Kaliyoga, Spain

I tried to make this video complete so that you could sit back and enjoy without having to wade through a text blog entry afterwards explaining all the numbers and fun stuff. Sooo, have a watch and please pipe up with your thoughts and comments about yoga, wellness, exercise and diabetes and whether anything I’m […]

YFT1 Goes To A New York Festival

YFT1 Goes To A New York Festival

Watch me first, read me second! Phew. Firstly, this video is obviously in massive antithesis to the zen-like wellness warrior I claim to have become of late as The Big Challenge approaches at a quite frankly FRIGHTENING rate (15 days, but I’m not counting). It just goes to show what can happen in a few short […]

YFT1 Gets Sent Packing…

YFT1 Gets Sent Packing…

Watch me first. Read me second… Ohhh another stuuuuupid video! Apparently you quite liked watching me running around getting drunk and being a general idiot (bar lunges, anyone?) so I thought I’d capture a bit more of my ridiculous existence. Being that it’s summer and given all the extra things we have to consider when […]

Start Spreading the News: YFT1 in New York

Etc etc… I’m in NEW YORK!!!! And I’m writing. It’s 30 degrees outside and I’m writing. HIYYYAAAAA. Oh my god it’s amazing. So bloody amazing I never ever ever want to leave. Ever.

Type 1 Travels: Aeroplane Games

G’dayyyy!!! Ok, so I might not have mentioned it but I went to Australia recently. On Christmas Day. Yah. I put it out there in a loose guise of a YFT1 Challenge in a ‘will I, won’t I be able to manage?!’ kinda way, but obviously I was heading to t’other side of the world […]

Jengle Bells! Packing For Travel With Type 1

Jengle Bells! Packing For Travel With Type 1

Really sorry about that title. I had an impromptu Christmas-themed pun-off with a friend (as you do) and that, quite rightly may I add, won. Thought it needed a bigger showcase. Annnyway… Happy Christmas Eve everybody! Hope your homes are full of chaos of the best kind, and pets and other creatures (like my brother […]

A V.Huge Weekend…

A V.Huge Weekend…

V Festival. It happened. With diabetes. Four girls, three days, two tents, oh-so-many beer,s lots of mud, and memories of a lifetime. My sides ACHE from laughing. I would go so far as to claim festival-going holds medicinal properties. I’m absolutely high on life from the filthy dirty experience, and I’ll be damned if my […]

Dating + Diabetes = Dilemma?

Diabetes is not an obvious illness if you don’t want it to be. I’ve come to learn that you can do your injections every single day in front of someone and they just won’t notice. The places I find myself stabbing my limbs makes me chuckle sometimes… on the tube, at the bus stop, in […]
