New Year's Eve is tomorrow? Where did 2014 go?

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! It seems that this year a lot people were sick over the holidays, myself included. I never had laryngitis and now I can say I have.  LOL  Other than not feeling well, I had a great holiday. I got to see family & friends. We spread some germs around so it was all good. I am hoping for a healthy New Year!

Which brings me to thinking about... New Years Resolutions.... I have the same ones every year. They are as follows:

1. To exercise
2. To get organized
3. Eat Healthy

The Fleming Library is now a part of the Fleming Centre which includes an arena, walking track and meeting rooms. To get more exercise I decided to find out what the Town of Lincoln has to offer in the way of programs.  Here is the list!

For my New Year's Resolution, I decided to take the Ballroom Dancing classes.  To compliment the course, I will be taking out DVDs and books from the Library on Ballroom Dancing. Here are some of the titles that the library has to offer. So hopefully 2015 will be the year that I can dance the nights away!

I also plan on using the walking track at the Fleming Centre. At the library we  have books and DVDs on how to get the most out of walking. Here are some titles that you may find interesting.

The library also has pedometers that can be borrowed to keep track of your steps. So I plan on using one  to walk my way to a healthy more energized me!

The Town of Lincoln is also offering Walking 101. Join Jennifer and Doug from Grimsby Runners as they guide you through a one hour workshop on walking technique, proper footwear, warm up and cool down exercises, hydration and nutrition. Then take your new skills to the track!
