Making it Happen

2013 was a great year:

I hit my goal weight (for a hot minute).
We hiked in Shenandoah National Park and on the Appalachian Trail.
We hiked in Colorado.
We hiked the Inca Trail in Peru to Macchu Picchu.
We took a river cruise down the Rhine River through The Netherlands, Germany, and France.

And that was great, but 2014 is going to be EPIC!!

I am going to set a goal of 124 pounds, for a total loss of 60 pounds.

I am going to stay active in team challenges.

I am going to set a goal of six fitness classes per week, and three half marathons in 2014.

We are going to travel west and do a lot more hiking in the Dakotas, Utah, and Colorado.

We are going to plan another Fall hiking trip -- perhaps Bhutan, or Nepal...?

Life is exciting! Every day is a gift!

I agree, its very nice they are doing the $10k. I tried to sit down several times with her to set a budget, so we knew reasonably whether or not we could afford our venue, but she insisted on booking it, and then 6 months later told us we would have to pay the extra $6k... It was a bit of a shock and the whole reason I wanted to budget... but we're past it -- we're trying to work together to save money and have a nice day.

Haha thank you! I was expecting to see a little Xander too but when I saw him....it just didn't fit! I'm glad we hadn't officially decided on the name prior to meeting him as we would have been changing our minds pretty quickly!

Thanks so much for your comments and encouragement on my boot camp blog. Although I do appreciate how far I've come, the old body image monster does get the better of me from time to time. Having great SparkFriends like you does a lot to help prop me up!
