that ribbon of highway

all the way back on the first day of this year, i jotted down a list of diabetes related goals for the year. it has sat in my drafts since then, probably wishing it had legs to walk and a voice to talk.

i read over them this morning and decided that i wanted to give them a chance to speak and to show the progress i feel i have made with each of them.

here are the goals i wrote on january first:

1. i am going to keep looking at my 7, 14, and 30 day averages when my blood sugars have been whacky.
(i haven’t even kind of done this)

2. i am not going to feel like a whole day of trying for good blood sugars is ruined by a morning #bgnow over 200.

3. i am going to go for that run with level up packets tucked nicely my fanny pak and not panic if i dip a little low.

4. i am not going to skip a doctors appointment because i feel shame in showing her my readings.

5. i am not going to wait until a week before my endo appointment to ‘try harder’ at diabetes management.
