For someone who feels like diabetes sometimes seems to overshadow so many parts of my life, it was refreshing to see that I could come up with a list without diabetes being the focus. Sometimes even I need a reminder that my life is so much more than my illness. Yes, there are several items pointing to a healthier lifestyle, but that would be the same for most people. Most people need improvement in that area.
Do I need to work on my diabetes management? Of course I do! However, I feel that other items on that list, such as exercising and planning meals, will naturally help me achieve my diabetes-related goals.
Here's to a great 2013! A year of change, adventure, and the unexpected!
