Happy 2018! Last year, I had an extensive list of goals and resolutions. I never went back and checked them so it was sort of pointless. This year I’m changing things up and instead of listing out a bunch of goals, I’m just going to focus on one thing-taking care of myself!
I spent the better part of December sick (thanks preschool germs). I spent the better part of 2017 going through a semi-diabetes burnout. I didn’t exercise; I didn’t eat right. I didn’t take care of myself.
This year I want to make my health a priority. I want to upload my CGM data weekly. I want to eat better. I want to be active. I want to drink more water. I want to keep my A1C below 7! Speaking of A1C’s, I started my new year at the endocrinologist. I got my latest A1C and it was 7.0. I was honestly surprised by that because in October and November, my blood sugars were awful. I think I can thank the new insulin pump/CGM system for improved blood sugars in December and helping to lower my A1C.
I’m not going to make any goals. I’m a person who works well with goals so I don’t know how this will pan out. Maybe I’ll make weekly or monthly goals but my ultimate resolution is to take better care of myself.
However, I would love, if by the end of 2018, I learned how to make a wreath. That will be my one goal for the year! I ultimately want one wreath per month, a snow wreath (January), a Valentine’s wreath (February), a St Patty’s wreath (March), etc. Let’s hope I can make that happen!
What are your resolutions for the year?
