New Year with Diabetes : Striving for _______ in 2013!
I am not making the normal fitness or A1C goals this year. My A1C is down to 6.3 (as per an A1C now test at Winter Slipstream) and that's right where I want it. I am still cycling and learning my limits and that won't stop.
Nope. My striving this year will be focused on thinking about myself, and not just Diabetes-wise. I spend a great deal of time reflecting on how my actions, words and thoughts may affect those around me. I stress out that I may be putting someone out more than I stress about my own well-being. This isn't a bragging post. I see that as a very undesirable personality trait.
Basically I want to stop caring more about how other people feel than about how I feel.
I think this is a totally reasonable goal. For example, I just turned the A/C up in my office space and didn't ask anyone because I am sweating to death! It's a small step, ok?
