The last day of 2015 is here and as we are about to celebrate the New Year my thoughts are turning to goals for 2016. Traditionally, most people use this time of year to look back at the successes and adventures of the past year and to think of resolutions for the next year.
I always like to think in terms of goals rather than resolutions. Setting a goal helps me think long term and down the road rather than just focused on my success or failure day to day. I found a little piece of artwork that I think I am going to use this year which will help me on my perennial goals of eating healthy and more exercise!
I am thinking maybe this new approach to New Years resolutions might be good posted on my refrigerator! Happy New Year!
Quote of the Week:
The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals. – Melody Beattie

You earn weekly exercise points and after 8 weeks participants points are counted and the top three will win truly fabulous prizes. Add a little spice to your exercise routine and join the fun!
Weather: Brrrrr!!!! It is COLD outside! Roads and sidewalks are icy and will likely stay that way through the weekend. Watch your step and enjoy the view of these sunny days from indoors.
Great idea, goals instead of resolutions. I got tired of feeling bad so I quit making New Years resolutions years ago.
Happy New Year! Klaus & Marianne
