  3. Ok, haven’t really been a goal setter so this will be new for me. I can see the good in it to give me something to aim for and also for accountability. Mine is short but a good start:

    Health: Toning exercise at least 4x’s a week.

    Train to beat my 9k time of 2017 in 2018

    Stick to 30 days in Jan. of eating meats, veggies, eggs and healthy fats. Will adjust after January.

    Reading: Read my Bible through in a year.

    Read The Case Against Sugar in the month of January.

    And get use to using a daily planner to plan and keep track of my goals.

    Excited to start a new year!
