Dodging Bullets and Making Resolutions

Yesterday's snow hit the southern part of the state harder than our location, so we managed to get out with between 2:"-3" where other places got 10"-12". WHEW! So lucky! I still shoveled though, and got plenty of exercise getting that done before running to the gym. DH actually woke up and helped me at 4:30 am! What a nice guy! Of course, he had to pull the snow down from the roof later that morning as well as do one more shovel of the driveway from snow that was still falling when I left. So he had his fill of it. I shoveled at the shop, so was I also tired of it by the end of the early morning. *sigh* There's a lot of winter left ...

I think I might be one step closer in that decision. I pulled them out last night and downloaded some pictures that might give me some guidance. Now to determine what direction I want to go ...

The top resolutions are listed here. Are your resolutions among them? 

So as we get one step closer to New Year's Resolutions, have you made any for 2016? My resolution for 2015 was to get myself back into shape and I've been working hard at that all year. Today I'll be carrying it out once again as I swim my mile in the pool. I do love my Guppy Days. Happy Wednesday!
