The New Year

Hard to believe another year has come & gone. I didn't really make any resolutions last year. I just wanted to continue working out, running & trying to eat right. For the most part I accomplished that. It's an amazing feeling to know you accomplished something you set out to do.

I ran a lot in 2014. Somewhere around 332 mi. I finished Half Marathons #2 and 3. My time was better with each race. Half #4 was supposed to happen in 2 weeks but it's been a month since I've ran so that's not happening. I officially dropped down to the 5K today. I thought about the 1/4 Marathon but I'm not sure I could even do that so the 5K it is. I'm not happy but it is what it is.

I ran 12 races in 2014. I didn't run a race in June or August but I ran 2 in May & 2 in September. In July I did my first Triathlon. I discovered how much I like bike riding. I decided I wouldn't do it again in July because the heat was brutal. I haven't decided if I'll attempt the one in April. The swim will be longer & that wasn't my strong suit. We'll see.

I'm excited to see what 2015 brings. We have the "Graduation Cruise" planned for May & I'm very excited about it & getting to see some new places. I'm recommitting to my eating & workout plans. I've eaten horribly - delicious - but horribly, the last month. It's time to get back on track. That means doing some planning because currently there isn't anything in the house to eat that would be considered healthy.

We weren't busy at work Friday so I got to leave at 1:15. I took advantage of getting home early and I went for a run.

It was hot & humid. We've had awful weather lately. I could've gone further but I thought it would be best not to overdo it.

Just about all my Christmas stuff has been taken down. I need another container so the mantle is still decorated. Everything looks so bare! My new roman shades that I had made for the kitchen will be installed next week. I'm very excited about that.

I hope everyone had a Happy New Year!



  1. Great job! I know you will do well in 2015 with all your running. I totally understand the brutal heat thing. I swear it starts in April here along the coast of Alabama.

  2. You did an amazing job this past year! Well done! Best wishes for 2015!
