Goals Check-In ⛳️

Every year I buy a whiteboard and write my goals for the year on that whiteboard. I then hang that whiteboard up somewhere I can see it every day. The objective is not necessarily to check off every goal on the whiteboard, but to guide my actions toward my priorities when I am feeling in a funk.

Blood Glucose Stats

A person without Type 1 Diabetes has an average blood glucose reading of 120. The graphic shows whether I am above, below, or at average. Leveraging an open source project called Nightscout I am able to scrape the data from the continous glucose monitor that I wear on my body. I hope to develop analytics and insights into glucose readings to help Type I Diabetics better manage their Diabetes.
