In this episode, we review our 2020 goals and set new diabetes goals for 2021. 


After a quick recap of how to set diabetes goals, we share how the ones we set last year panned out. Then, we go into detail for the goals we're setting for 2021.

Wins & Fails

Colleen's Win: I tightened up my food protocol to get back to some flatter numbers and help restart my weight loss.

Jessie's Fail: Ten minutes before recording, Jessie's sensor died. 

Hack or Tip of the Week

An oldie but a goodie...

Write your 2021 diabetes goals and make them visible. Rewrite them every day.

If you can see them somewhere every day, it's easier to keep them top of mind as long as you don't let them become part of the scenery.

How did your 2020 diabetes goals go? What are you planning to accomplish in 2021? Make a plan, because if you don't, you're planning to fail.
