  5. My goal this year is to extend how far I can run. I started running two years ago (having never run before) to improve my health and to challenge myself. In 2016 I ran a 13.1k race, my furthest distance ever! Very proud of that accomplishment and now I want to add another mile or two.

I am eating healthier (Med diet, though not really dieting), trying to exercise more (plan to join a gym), and just get moving to lose weight. It's been a vicious cycle, need to exercise, then pay for it the next day when foot and back hurt!

  41. I want to live simpler and be happy in 2017. I want to mindfully think of each day as a new gift to celebrate being alive. I've made a bucket list of places to travel, people to cheer and my writing goals. I hope to give a dose of random kindness to someone else each day, if only to warm their heart and make them feel as alive as I do. I have put on my positive hat. Happy New Year to all of you who are reading this.

  60. My resolution for the new year is to maintain my 80-pound weight loss and remain a Size 0 to 2. I decided to take charge of my own health care and lose weight in order to reduce the need for visits to the doctor. I plan to stay trim and do what I can to take a continued, preventative approach to health care, especially given the rising costs of medical care. In addition, I plan to add a work-out regimen to my strict diet of non-processed foods, limited carbohydrates and a healthy daily balance of greens and protein.

  61. While I have several resolutions, I now have a new one; get caught up on this amazing blog! I have just discovered it today thanks to my husband meeting KJ at the Shot Show in Vegas about an hour ago. He text me immediately (as I am an aspiring spy writer), and I am SO excited to find about all these amazing women! I can hardly wait to sift through all of your information and experiences. Thank you, it's like Christmas all over again!
