Although it runs in my family, I do not have diabetes. But having been diagnosed with some form of autoimmune disease lately, I sure can make use of a healthy meal plan like this. Precisely why I had the app downloaded on my phone.

Managing diabetes made easier with a unique 12-week program that incorporates 1) a healthy meal plan, 2) exercise, and 3) specialized nutrition such as Glucerna Triple Care. The three steps of the 1-2-3 Challenge help people with diabetes to address three important components of managing their condition – managing blood sugar response, reducing weight and waistline, and supporting heart health.

My weight shifts between 99 to 101 lbs. Truth be told, I am good with up to just that. I hit 102 and I would feel really bloated and heavy. My keeping at my desired weight does not mean I can  stay sedentary, which I am not proud to be doing for so many months since I stopped doing Hip Hop Abs. Hopefully this app will push me to work on my ideal goal of exercising 4 times per week.

The 1-2-3 Challenge features a robust set of tools and tips to provide people with diabetes with:

  • easy, healthy meal plans and recipes based on  caloric needs and personal preferences,
  • daily exercise plans and step-by-step instructional videos,
  • Glucerna serving recommendations,tracking tools and progress reports to monitor their progress that they can share with their doctors, and
  • a loyalty program that rewards members with points so they can redeem prizes depending on the number of points accumulated such as Freestyle® Glucometer, Freestyle® glucose strips, Mercury® Drugstore Gift Certificates, Robinson’s® Gift Certificates, and a lot more.

The 1-2-3 Challenge is a good reinforcing program to my resolve to have a healthier lifestyle.  If you have been following me on Instagram – @jenaspacio, you will see all those not so tasty looking juices I have been onto lately. 🙂 The meal plans that are suggested in the 1-2-3 Challenge app are also great ideas if I run out of healthier meals to serve my family. We  really do not need to have diabetes to start eating and living healthy. 🙂
