Happy New Year - Here is to a New Year

Saturday, January 01, 2011

Here it is - 2011. What a year 2010 was. I did so many things I did not think possible. I went on a 26 and a 42 mile bike ride with 3 of my daughters. What wonderful daughters to put up with old mom on these trips. The 42 mile bike ride was in New York City - what an awesome experience. I did my first Turkey Trot. If some one told me I would be running by the end of year I would have laughed - I am not a runner!! I joined Strength Training Class with the TRX straps and have done so many exercise I would never have attempted to do on my own. And I am down 16 pounds - big Who Hoo!! So here is to 2011!!

I hope I can continue my quest to love exercise and not be afraid to try new things. Plus I would love to take off another 16 pounds. Slow but sure.

And I hope to continue on strong with Spark People. I have met so many amazing and wonderful friends here and it is such an important part of m y day - My Sparking!!

And perhaps I could wean myself away from my sweet tooth - that would definitely not be a bad thing.

So here is to you emoticonall of my Spark Friends and my Facebook Friends - may all of your wishes and dreams come true for 2011!!
