Last week of 2009..Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

2009 was a really good year...

Not every one would agree but I thought 2009 was a pretty good year! Reflecting back, I had a lot of fun and great experiences! I checked off Ironman #2, I dived the Great Barrier Reef (you never truly realized how cool it is until you actually do it), I made many new friends and some that will no doubt last a lifetime, one of my best friends got married and is now awaiting a little one, witnessed history with Obama, had the time of my life at Kona this year, was introduced to trail running, bought Pip, got into Twilight (Rob Pattinson.. gorgeous!), fell in love with Blue Bottle Coffee.. more so their hot cocoa, learned to use the manual modes of my dslr.. that took long enough! I also grew as an individual and another year of being more comfortable in my own skin...that in itself made it a successful year! I am at a happy place!

So for 2010.. I am not a believer in New Year's Resolutions because... well.. how many of you actually remember what your resolutions were at year's end? I know I don't... not necessarily. I do have a list of things that I have to look forward to in 2010..

- Ironman St George
- Ironman Canada
- Kona 2010
- Finish reading the Twilight series
- Breaking Dawn movie (3rd movie of the Twilight series)
- Where will destination 2010 be?! Will I go back to Australia or will it be somewhere else?

And I look forward to whatever else comes in between all that! How is that list different than New Year's Resolution's? I am not telling myself that I will do this or that more.. for example.. go to the gym more.. eat less chocolate.. etc. Speaking of the gym.. one thing I am not looking forward to is the throng of New Year's Resolution gym go-ers at the Bay Club! I've seen it for MANY years now.. the first 7 weeks or do of the New Year.. the locker rooms are extra crowded.. lines for the showers.. not my favorite time of the year! When are these people going to realize that fitness has to be incorporated as a lifestyle and not a resolution? Just like dieting... it has to change in eating habits and not seen as a restriction..

Anyway, enough preaching.. hope every one had a Merry Christmas and wishing every one a Happy New Year!!
