BEYOND THE A1C: AN INTEGRATIVE APPROACH TO DIABETES MANAGEMENT
NOW ACCEPTING THREE MEMBERS FOR FEBRUARY 2022
Your 90 day solution to..
confidently & powerfully take on the world without second guessing every dosing decision you make.
A QUESTION FOR THE WOMAN LIVING WITH TYPE ONE DIABETES
WHO KNOWS THEY HAVE MORE POTENTIAL THAN CHASING THEIR BLOOD SUGARS THROUGH THE MOMENTS THAT MATTER THE MOST.
What if there was a way to ...
... minimize the fluctuations during the everyday variability that life brings, without feeling restricted and limited..
... look at diabetes with a holistic lens instead of carbs + insulin = blood sugar.
... sync your blood sugars with your hormones, movement, nutrition and lifestyle..
..finally build the trust back in your body that diabetes stole from you the day of your diagnosis?
.. feel more strong and empowered in your own body, instead of overwhelmed & controlled by your blood sugars?
.. create more moments with the ones that matter?
IT'S POSSIBLE HERE.
Maybe you can relate to this. From the day I was diagnosed I was given over-generalized advice.
✴ Count your carbs.
✴ Don't exercise unless your blood sugar is over 150 mg/dl (8.3 mmol).
✴ Eat at the same time every day for maximum control.
✴ 15 grams of carbs every 15 minutes for a low.
✴ More variability in your day = less control in your blood sugars.
At the end of the day, it makes you feel like you're doing something wrong, but in reality it's not your fault.
Your body and blood sugars are unique, and deserve an approach that's unique to you, your lifestyle and your preferences.
This experience with Lissie and her team has been unlike any regular endo appointment, unlike any book you’ll read, or advice you’ll get. It’s unlike any other experience because everyone’s diabetes is different. No one's diabetes management is “one size fits all.” This approach to diabetes management is so individualized! I can’t express how my life has changed within just a few weeks! It’s not that I finally got the best advice but that I finally feel confident and feel empowered by my decision making as well as feeling so loved by everyone on the BTA1C team. As a team we can do amazing things! Thank you for changing my life and many more with your guidance, love, support and accountability!.
- BRIANA KUTA, T1D
"Lissie, you guide me to better management on a weekly basis. I've so much better with your coaching and continue to learn with yours and Jessica's help. Amazing experience and it's not even over yet. And we'll continue this because your coaching is essential in my diabetes management, even though I've had diabetes for almost 20 years. Yep, two decades of living with T1D and I've learned so so so much with these two amazing professionals."
- RUBIA PASSOS, A1C 8.5% to 6.8%
AT THE END OF THE DAY, YOU KNOW THERE'S MORE TO IT ALL
but you find yourself getting caught in the day-to-day survival mode and simply getting by.
INTRODUCING BEYOND THE A1C PRIVATE COACHING
Beyond the A1C is your three month private coaching container designed to overcome mindset roadblocks AND integrate sustainable blood sugar strategy through a 360 degree support system.
This 90 day 1:1 coaching program gives you not only the tools + resources for more predictability and less fluctuation in blood sugars, but the behind-the-scenes work to make it sustainable and long-term.
HOW IT WORKS
Twelve 45 minute sessions with Lissie where you'll implement strategies from your unique blood sugar roadmap, learn how to self-identify personal trends + patterns and overcome mindset roadblocks so you can lower your A1C and increase your time in range sustainably.
Three 30 minute private sessions with our support coaches - two sessions being with Jessica Hrdlicka (RD/CDE) and one session with Valeria Garcia (Women's Wellness Coach) so you can fine tune your personal strategy around nutrition, bolusing and your cycle.
One 60 minute kick-off call co-creating your week-by-week roadmap for the next three months where we make sure you have every resource, focus and strategy to reach your blood sugar goal, mindset goal, and life goal. We don't leave any room for guesswork.
24/7 private Slack access to connect with all 3 of your coaches between calls. Stay supported with our accountability calendar & reminders.
Weekly check-in forms followed by private recorded feedback from Lissie, making sure you're fully supported between sessions.
Access to all Keeping it 100 group Question & Clarity sessions for additional on-demand access to all three of your coaches & community.
Beyond the A1C is designed to support you in so much more than your blood sugars.
Your A1C, time in range and average blood sugar transformation is just a byproduct of what you truly gain.
After your twelve weeks inside of Beyond the A1C, you'll:
✴ Lead new scenarios and moments with confidence, so you can make intentional and confidence-led decisions that serve you.
✴ Be able to look at your trends, data and blood sugars with curiosity, so you can leave self-judgement and guilt behind and move forward with an action plan.
✴ Be able to trust your body, blood sugars and decision-making so you never have to make another decision out of fear again.
✴ Understand your body on a new level so you can take ownership over your endo appointments and every day in-between.
GO FROM FEELING...
✴Overwhelmed, confused and frustrated with the everyday decisions you have to make for your body
✴Unsupported with the oversimplified approach given to you at every doctors visit
✴Burnt out and resentment towards your own body and blood sugars
✴Clarity, control and confidence no matter what scenario you are in, so you can welcome in more moments with ease.
✴Complete ownership and understanding over your body, so your doctor is no longer leading your management but an extra leg of support.
✴Empowered and liberated by the flexibility & freedom you can have while self-managing your blood sugars.
Making the decision to partner with your diabetes and lead with an empowered approach, gives others permission to do the same.
A BREAK DOWN OF OUR SIGNATURE FRAMEWORK
How we ensure every member achieves everything they set out to in the next 12 weeks.
PHASE 01. NAILING THE ESSENTIAL FOUNDATIONS
As people living with type one diabetes, we have behaviors, habits and decision-making patterns that we default to. In this phase, we will assess each foundation together and reverse engineer your current processes so you can optimize decision-making and create blood sugar supporting habits for without diabetes taking over.
PHASE 03. STRATEGIZE FOR ROUTINE VARIABILITY
Routine variability - sounds counterintuitive, right? But we all have it. Those moments in our day that add fluctuations in our blood sugars - primarily meals and movement. In this phase, we break down your nutrition and exercise strategy so you can create more consistency, while welcoming more flexibility into your day to day life.
PHASE 02. OPTIMIZE BASELINES FOR INCREASED PREDICTABILITY
We all have insulin baselines for our management - but nine times out of ten, they don't meet our needs. In this phase we test and assess your baselines - basal rates, carb ratios and correction factor so you have a solid foundation to build onto. Jess, our Certified Diabetes Educator supports you in making sure your needs are met.
PHASE 04. CONQUERING HIGH VARIABILITY AREAS
Eating out, holidays, hormonal shifts, pregnancy, traveling.. all things we know create more fluctuations in our blood sugars but no body prepares us for. In this phase, we support you in creating predictability in your blood sugars while navigating the variability in your routine - so you can welcome in more moments while worrying less.

Inside this 30 minute Zoom call, you and Lissie will chat through your personal journey living with diabetes, what's not currently working and how our framework can support you. Here Lissie will pinpoint focus areas & action points to prioritize over the next three months.
You can book your complimentary consultation call HERE.
On this call we will also discuss your 90-day and long-term goals relating to your blood sugar management, mindset and overall life and how we can support you in getting there with intentional strategy and sustainable action.
You will only be invited into BTA1C if we are absolutely sure we will be able to support you and your goals. If you are invited in and it is a "heck yes" from you, we will get you onboarded! To make sure all of our members feel fully supported, we currently onboard three members each month. Depending on the capacity, you will be on-boarded for the next available start date and access all of your bonuses to make progress before we start!
On this kick-off call we'll dive deep into your current daily management, behaviors and decision-making patterns and bridge the gap between your goals, so you have an exact step by step breakdown of each focus area every single week.
You and Lissie will set forty-five minutes every single week to meet on Zoom to dive into your individual strategy, mindset support, indentify trends & patterns and everything in between.
Look back in 90 days and see how far you've come..

..of you as a client and us as your coaches:
We want you walking into this container empowered in knowing exactly how we can best work together - because from my experience, coaching works best as a two-way street!
The coaching dynamic is a collaborative one, in which we expect all of our members to show up for themselves each week and give 100% (whatever that looks like that week). As a team who holds space in a safe and judgement-free container, we expect you as a member to always share your wins, concerns, confusion, frustration and everything in between. The more you share, the more we can help you navigate.
In return, your coaches will show up for you powerfully, push you out of your comfort zone in a gentle and safe way, and always put your best interest + preferences first.
We promise to hold your vision at the forefront of every decision while co-navigating the next step.
We will challenge you, question patterns that are no longer serving you, and help you break through the roadblocks that have been keeping you stuck. Always, this is done without judgement and with full hearts of support.
Since we work so closely together in this container, it's important that we get to know each other first and make sure this is the best option for you!
We can't wait to support you!
Integrative Diabetes Health Coach, Certified Personal Trainer, owner of Needles and Spoons Health & Wellness, and creator Keeping It 100. I help overwhelmed people with Type One Diabetes just like you gain more predictability in their blood sugars so they can finally take their life plans off hold.
I was diagnosed with T1D at the age of 19, and to say that I was lost would be an understatement. In the years that followed my diagnosis, through trial, (a lot of) error, and education, I took my own A1C from a 7.1 to a consistent 5.7 and learned what it really takes to achieve predictability in my blood sugars. I also brought my Ulcerative Colitis into remission!
Are you ready for a life that's Beyond the A1C?
Less stress, more freedom.
Less fluctuation, more predictability.
More energy, more memories.
