New Year!

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

Well, my plans to be on track over Christmas-- fell short. This has been a really rough fall and winter. I only got one run in over the holidays. My plans to start 2013 off with a run, didn't happen... thanks to a migraine of epic proportions. I mean, I still have it. Obviously, since I'm up... its been reduced to "headache" but I'm still heading to the doctor this afternoon to find out what's up. I also had one one the 26th, which makes me nervous. 2 bad migraines in a week-- both effecting my visual field-- when I've not had a true migraine in years... time to see the doctor.

And food over Christmas. There were actually two whole days where I felt stuffed the entire time. And yet, there was still food and eating. The problem with being at my in laws for so long is this... my MIL is French. So, that means many courses. My FIL is a Nebraska farm boy, which means huge portions. Many courses with large portions? and desserts at EVERY meal. (yes, twice a day!) YIKES. And I confess, I fell into the holiday food traps. I've got some damage to undo.

So, I've gone running once in the last 6 weeks. I've done a ton of food damage. But, it's back to normal. The big kid is back in school today. The little one is sleeping. So, as soon as I'm done typing this... I'm putting on my indoor workout clothes and putting on BSG (because I can only watch BattleStar Galactica while working out!) and getting my year started. I figure I've got at least a month worth of work to get back to where I was pre-Christmas at the in laws. Then a month to finish off the rest of the baby weight.

I'm just crossing my fingers that I stop getting injured, sick, or otherwise debilitated so I can just keep at it. I'm ready to be back. I'm tired of this sitting on the sidelines. I miss my activity.

But, really... 2012 a terrific year. We bought our first house. We had a baby. My bestie found someone who makes her truly happy and that's amazing to see. My big boy is growing by leaps and bounds and is happy and healthy. He survived the super scary flu. He loves school. My hubby has a great job and got a raise. I made some really amazing friends. I connected with some SP friends IRL and that was amazing. I finished my second half marathon. The economy is growing, slowly... but growing. And if I may be a teensy bit political (sorry!) I'm so glad I don't have to say President Romney. I just really feel that this last year has been spectacular in hindsight. I'm really glad I had this last year. I'm stronger and more ME. I'm still a pessimist (it's my nature!), but I'm happy.

And now, I'm going to stop typing so I can get going on being active in 2013!

Peace and Blessings to you all. I hope you had a happy New Year and are ready to tackle all that 2013 has to offer us!
