My resolution for this year is fairly open ended. I want to be healthier. I am a very forgetful person, so I thought it would be good to make myself some reminders. Here are two reminder magnets I made (I plan on making more):


I have diabetes and I am awful about taking my blood sugar. This magnet is made out of polymer clay with droplet shaped beads. I also included a lancet (for poking skin with to draw blood) and a test strip. FYI: Lancets melt in the oven.  Cheesy


I drink massive amounts of diet pop. This is a habit I really want to change. Instead, I would like to drink more water. Again, the magnet is made from polymer clay and droplet bead.

I hope you like my project! I've never submitted anything to a challenge before.  Grin

These are great reminders, good for you!  I have to say I read the first one, with a Barry White voice, saying "Test your blood, Sugar."   Ha ha made me giggle!

The blood sugar reminder is very cool. I had gestational diabetes with my first child and understand where you're coming from... 3 months of constant finger-pricking was bad enough!

Off topic, but I have also (for a short time once) beat my soda addiction- fizzy flavored waters helped me a lot. Still flavored, still carbonated, still in nifty bottles- but water!

Good luck with the caffeine headaches.

Thanks. I think I'm more worried that my husband will divorce me because I will be so cranky.  Wink

Those are a couple of my goals as well.  For me, the caffeine headache only lasted a couple of days, then I was normal again.  After that I drank caffeine free diet soda.  *sigh*  Still addicted (sorry, I had flavored waters, fizzy or not).  I actually like water, I just like diet soda more.

I have been super bad about testing my sugars as well. Roll Eyes

What a great idea! My hubby has type 1 diabetes and Im on him every day about the diet pop. Seems to be a bad habbit for him. I have been hounding him for 5 years to quit drinking so much. Water is great for you. Good work tho! I think it will help you!

Can I copy that bloody one for my hubby?  He has Type I diabetes and he doesn't test nearly as often as he should.  We want him to get one of those continual blood testers that you wear for three days, but insurance won't pay for it.  Grrr...

Thankfully we don't have a soda problem in our house.  Yay for water!

LOL! You know what is weird? The silver clay I used as the base is sparkly. I must have secretly had vampires on the brain.  Wink

Copy away!  Grin  I've never heard of the continual testers. I'm glad I only have to test mine a couple times a week!

Thank you everyone for the kind and encouraging comments!

I think the beauty of the water magnet is that you can put it right where you'd see it on your way to get a soda. I hope that will work well for you!

Love your magnets!
I'm trying to move toward a healthier lifestyle too.   After being told I was prediabetic I cut down from 5+ Pepsies a day to one.  After my last uti/kidney stone I primarily quit.  I still have one as a treat once or twice a month.  I couldn't have done it without Aquafina flavored waters though.
