Try, Try Again

Okay. Here we go again. So November and December didn't exactly work out as I had planned. While I had hoped to work out while my parents were in town, that didn't happen. Then, when we went to Oregon, Kevin ended up coming down on the first day and proposing. So then everythng went bananas. First we stayed an extra day in Oregon. Then, the four days or so I had between that and Nashville were spent ring shopping, unpacking, doing laundry, and repacking. Then, straight from Nashville to home for Thanksgiving. Then it was December. November simply disappeared on me.
December went much the same with the holiday hustle. In all of December, I worked out all of about four times. At least when I did, I generally went hard. One time I went running at home (before the streets got snowy and slick) and Nunzio (tank dog) and I did 4.5 miles. Well, I did 4.5. My mom went by on her way home from church when we were at about 3.5 and he begged to get in the car.
The good news is that, I think I only gained about a pound in December. Not as bad as it could be! But I have certainly lost fitness and I am actually looking forward to getting into the January and February doldrums where there seems to be little better to do than to work out. Last February was my best gym month all year.
I am excited for and nervous about the upcoming year. We've tentatively decided on late February/early March for the wedding. So, in this next year, I have about 20-25 pounds to lose, a wedding to try to plan on the cheap, and the whole move to Kevin's house to contend with. First, we need to do some stuff around the house like painting, rearranging, and installing shelving. Then, we have some major organization to do since I come 'prepared.' Luckily, this will allow me to move in over a lot of time so I can do a good job and put things away as I bring them.
And, finally, my 10-year reunion is coming up so I'm toying with the idea of trying to run a marathon by May 2011. But maybe I'm insane for trying to fit a wedding and marathon into the first six months of 2011. We shall see.
Oh what a year 2010 will be!
