So did you make any New Years
resolutions? I often do, and
sometimes I even manage to keep
Last year I set a goal of doing 50K
steps a week. I knew that 10K per

50K/week was challenging but
all, our goals should be
- Specific, Measurable, Attainable,
Well, I accomplished that 2016
resolution! So what did I do...I
set the same one again for 2017. .
It has been cold in Vancouver. I was
out on my daily walk yesterday, and
saw some really crazy ice crystals...
warm and good luck on your 2017 goals!
