It’s 2013! Whooppee! I always love the new year, I feel so motivated and ready to start new challenges. This year is no different, 2012 was a rough go with everything that happened to my mom. Actually, the week before Christmas she ended up in the hospital again with another blood clot. We weren’t sure if she was going to need surgery and luckily, she didn’t. The meds dissolved the clot and after a week she was back home..she actually was discharged on Christmas day so that was an incredible gift to us all! We had a nice, mellow family holiday and it was very enjoyable. I ended up getting into the spirit and made some goodies…Oreo balls, Red Velvet cake balls, and gingerbread cookies…can’t have Christmas without treats!
I wish I had some crazy NYE stories to write about but I don’t…I had family in town so we had a nice dinner out and drank champagne and watched the ball drop. It was very chill and exactly what I needed after the hospital ordeal with my mom. I wasn’t hung over at all on New Years Day so I went to the gym to get that first workout in…felt awesome to kick 2013 off the healthy way! Then I was totally lazy the rest of the afternoon…watched football, played with my dogs and took a nap. Exactly what I wanted and needed.
Let’s talk resolutions..I have a few. First, I want to continue with my healthy eating and exercise routine. Ideally I do 6 days per week but 5 is acceptable if need be. With all the traveling I did this fall and being sick, I slipped from that and the scale showed. My clothes are also tighter. But hell, I’ve been here before so I know exactly what to do to get back to where I want to be again. I still have my elbow injury so I am limited on what my upper body can do but I really want to build back some of the muscle that I have lost. Another change I want to make is to be better organized. I am a scatter brain! Organized chaos! I believe that I have ADD on some level and I deal with it every day. But I need to make a schedule and just stick to that. It works best for me but I have veered away from it. Lastly, I am going to read more in 2013. I’ve already read 2 books! I am a fast reader so it wasn’t that difficult. I go on reading binges where I will read a ton and then I won’t touch a book for months. Now that I own an iPad, it makes it easier to have a bunch of good books on hand. So that’s that…what are your resolutions for 2013?
