fun fact for no one that gives a shit I was born in Japan and lived there five years. Military kid life. And I’m also slightly obsessed with Japanese culture

Lifting, drawing, and da streets

The story of Francesca. A clueless diabetic that was addicted to coffee and didn’t know what to do with her life.

So pretty much every night I start drawing something. Anything that comes to mind or whatever I like at the moment. Then when I realize it’s 1am I lay down and try to sleep but I can’t because I just want to draw so I get back up and start again and then before I know it it’s 3:50am and I’m supposed to get up to help my mom grocery shop early and then I had a second job interview in the afternoon. So maybe it’s a good thing I stay up all night and draw because pretty soon I’ll be working, going to school, and focusing on training for nationals as hard as possible.

I’ve really enjoyed getting back into my drawing these past few months I’ve been free from school and work. Sad I won’t have the time for it in the next months. And this is why I question choosing to be a nutritional science major when what really makes me happy is drawing and coffee. Can I just retire already?

Here’s a 303lbs back squat from today’s training. Over double body weight.

What you don’t see is my tubing hanging out of my left arm and my insulin pump clipped to my lifting belt. (Not that I was trying to hide it lol.)

This was once something I dreamed about. Then it became a far off goal and then a realistic goal and finally reality. This goes out to all the type 1 diabetics out there, athlete or not! Believe in yourself, aim high, and never let diabetes fucking win. Anything is possible.
