Tuesday, January 01, 2013

Today is January 1, 2013 and here are a few of my goals for this year:

Practice patience a little more.
Help a total stranger at least once a month.
Tweak my attitude just a little more
Keep Diabetes II at bay
Drink more water
Keep cholesterol and triglycerides in check
Keep high blood pressure in check
Exercise more

These are a few of my 2013 goals and I hope to accomplish them all.

I am practicing patience more and taking things more in stride.

In January: I gave a young girl that I did not know a donation toward her nursing degree in honor of my deceased niece (who passed away from cancer) who was an LPN working toward her RN degree when she passed.

In February: I gave a cancer patient a donation toward a new pair of glasses which she could not afford due to her mounting chemo bills.

My attitude still needs tweaked.

Try as I may, I cannot keep diabetes at bay...will probably be going on meds soon.

I am now up to 8 glasses of water a day. Yay!

Haven't had a cholesterol check yet this year.

BP is super...Yay!

I am exercising more because I wanted to try to keep the diabetes at bay.

That is an update on my 2013 goals.

Patience is a virtue

In March I donated money to a young gentleman that was involved in a head-on collision and was in serious condition. There are tremendous dr bills and hospital bills.

My attitude still needs work.

I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in March. I am now on metformin. Not doing so well with that. Having a hard time adjusting to the meds and the turmoil going on in my body. Have no energy and sick to my stomach a lot.

I do drink lots of water.

Still no cholesterol check yet this year.

BP is excellent.

This is my update for now.

    Do you use your tracker to keep up with how much cholesterol you are eating? I set mine up for that and sodium. Those goals look good to me and very do-able.
