In the spirit of Tinkering With Success, I thought it appropriate to do a quick year end review. In 2017, I didn’t break any bones.

Over the course of 2016, I broke my right ankle and later in the year I broke my left foot. The doctors performed many tests, but could find no medical reason why I was breaking bones. They just broke.

My goal for 2017 was to do everything that I could to increase my bone density. So for 52 weeks, I lifted weights and swam laps. My bone density report went from “normal for a woman of my age” in 2016 to just plain normal in 2017. I call that a WIN.

With the new year right around the corner, I need to set a new goal. So for 2018, I will focus on getting stronger. Perhaps I’ll add in some free weights to my workout routine. I could certainly use a little more upper body strength. Getting older comes with many challenges, but I’m going to fight to maintain my health.

What would you like to achieve in 2018? Is there an area in your life where you would like to grow, improve, or begin something new? I’m not suggesting that you set a new year’s resolution, because those don’t typically last. However you COULD choose one commitment for 2018 and see where it takes you.

Best wishes for a healthy 2018.
