Happy New Year Everyone!

Bud and I spent a lovely evening with our friends K & J for dinner and a visit.  We made it home and promptly fell asleep on the couch until 11; when I decided we should give each other a New Year's kiss just in case we didn't make it til 12.  Well, we did wake up at 11:55, gave each other a smooch, then toasted the New Year with a shot of limoncello.  Too tired to drink a whole bottle of champagne!

I'm so excited to start a new year.  I think for me, it's a mental clean slate and I can write down some goals and work on them with some enthusiasm.  So, what are my goals this January 1st?  Well, my first big goal is to start on my reading challenge.  Then, after some advice from J (thanks, dude!) about getting my running in shape, I'm hitting the gym.  Now that my schedule is coming back to normalcy, I can actually make plans to hit the gym with some regularity.  New recipes are in store for Bud to try, and making better choices when we eat.  

Sadly, I've said goodbye to Big Macs (had my last one Thursday), goodbye to Ho Ho's (had the last one Friday morning), and chinese take out from the grocery store for lunch.  Boo Hoo!  Whaaaaa!  Sniff sniff. *blowing nose now*.  Ahem.  Shake it off.  I'm okay now.

So what are you doing this New Year?  I'm staying in my sweats and drinking coffee, reading a book, and cleaning up the Christmas from the house.  I will be forced to go out later to the grocery store to get the ingredients for dinner tonight.  It's -9 with the wind chill, and I don't wanna go outside.  

Cheers everyone!  


  1. I don't think I made it to 12 last night, but who cares, it's a new year now. I'm not doing anything special. Trying to decide whether to go cycling or running, it's a little warmer here, but still below 32. I've got plans to hit the gym more often too, maybe even train for 1/2 marathon. we'll see.
    Happy New Warmer Year!

  2. Alessandra: Hope you have a wonderful day. I've decided I can scrape together a stir fry for supper without leaving the house, so I am staying home all day. What bliss!

    We can compare notes on the running this year. I will be blah blahing on and on about it in the coming months.

  3. Thanks for stopping by! I'm always happy to find new blogs to read (and hoping to get back into the habit of reading regularly... I sort of disappeared this year! bleh!)
