Making Lists

Do you have to make shopping lists when you go grocery shopping, just so you won’t forget half of what you went out to get in the first place? Or, have you ever underestimated the power of a to do list, and missed to call that one person you really had to speak to? No? […]

Low Carb Cruise 2015

How am I supposed to summarize a wonderfully magical week full of meeting amazing people, seeing paradise islands and learning superinteresting new information? Perhaps just like that?

I used to think […]

HbA1c, just a number?

Do you ever find yourself paying a little too much attention to a specific number? Your weight? Your distance covered? Milestones reached? Friends on Facebook?
