Edi­tor’s note

Diabetic Living - - Contents -

I love this time of the year – win­ter is well be­hind us, the prom­ise of sum­mer is still to come and it re­ally does feel like any­thing is pos­si­ble. I re­cently moved out of the city and have so en­joyed be­ing able to see the sea­sons change – bulbs have bloomed, trees have blos­somed and my lit­tle vegie patch is start­ing to bear fruit (well, rocket and kale). Which re­minds me: we all have the chance to re­new our­selves, to make a fresh start or con­tinue to grow and evolve.

My most re­cent fresh start has been to change up my ex­er­cise rou­tine. I sud­denly found jump­ing and lung­ing was do­ing me more harm than good and switched to a daily yoga ses­sion (from a smart­phone app in my lounge room) that is far more ben­e­fi­cial.

What changes would you like to make this spring? If you’d like to get fresh in the kitchen, we’ve got loads of recipes to tin­gle your taste­buds, plus a spe­cial Christ­mas menu (page 31) – no one has to miss out! And, you can get ahead of the fes­tive game by be­ing pre­pared – see page 40 for fab ideas for bick­ies, pud­ding and a chut­ney that also makes a great gift.

If your ex­er­cise rou­tine needs a switch like mine did, check out our story on page 123 for a stronger core or, if you’re look­ing for a chal­lenge, con­sider our stair work­out (page 126).

Fat Mum Slim blog­ger Chantelle made a fresh start re­cently when she fi­nally re­alised she re­ally did need to lose weight to im­prove her health – her story is on page 120 and I know you’ll find it as in­spir­ing as I did.

We love hear­ing from you, so please let us know what you think of the mag­a­zine and also what you’d like to see more of in fu­ture is­sues.
