Happy New Year!

Each new year promises so much. New hopes. New opportunities. New starts.

But I can’t get to the new without dealing with the old first.

Looking back over the last year I realized that my efforts to manage diabetes have stalled out. I have been within spitting distance of “tight” control for way too long. My A1C just hasn’t gotten below 7.0. It’s gotten close. But close don’t count.

I’m not much of one for resolutions. The goal is clear to me. What seems to be missing is intention. So I am declaring my intention here and now.

I intend to get my A1C below 7.0 in 2011 and to keep it there.
