“What do you want to work towards this winter” was my question. 

“I want to be able to do a cartwheel” was her answer.  

Not an unrealistic goal for a 48yo woman in great shape.   And certainly more fun than ” I want to lose __  pounds” or “I want to look good in sleeveless shirts this spring”.

The smile on your face was priceless.

And oh by the way, your arms are going to look amazing in sleeveless shirts this year.

Now do cartwheels.  Lots of them.  Because they feel so good, and they make you smile.
