This time of year we ready ourselves for New Years Resolutions but I try not to make any until I have given serious thought about the things for which I am thankful. It doesn't have to be something that happened this year just something for which I am thankful.
I have so much to be thankful for this year. My family is healthy, we have a comfortable home, we have jobs, we can pay our bills and save for a "rainy day", we have friends who mean the world to us, and a growing faith. These people and things are very important to me and I want to make sure that they remain so and it makes setting a new goal for the coming year easier.
Personal fitness goals should also be structured in a way that we don't lose sight of the people and things for which we are most grateful. When we are lucky we get to combine the important with our goals. Happy New Year from all of us at IFF, and happy goal setting! I am off to play the wii with my boys!
