2014: New Year with New Opportunities

Today I did a crunch with a punch for my 44.  A pretty basic move but clasping my hands and punching between my legs forced me to come up higher on the crunch part.


This was a fairly simple move but I always need to work my core!!

(Yes, we still have up our Christmas trees – we always leave them up through New Year’s!!!  I will undecorate this weekend.)

I’m fixing to head down and hop on my treadmill for a nice easy run to kick off the new year.  This has been a tradition of mine for years – even last year when I had a stress fracture in my hip I broke the no-running rule and ran on January 1!!!

I don’t do New Year’s resolutions – they don’t work for me.  

However, I do have a list of things that I want to try in the new year.  This list will probably grow as the year goes on but a few of the things include:

1.  Quinoa – I have seen so many tasty looking recipes for this that I am finally going to try it!!!

2.  Spaghetti Squash – This is something else that I have never had (don’t be shocked!) and plan to try out this year.

3.  FitBit – I had a special offer savings at Best Buy and a couple of gift cards so I ended up getting a FitBit Force  this week for $2.44 (can’t beat that!!).  I’m going to try tracking my daily activity and sleep patterns.  In the past 2 days I have already seen how inactive I am – gonna work on that.

4.  Reconnecting – This past fall I have done a horrible job staying in touch with many of my friends and I am going to make more effort this year to stay connected!

5.  Experimenting – I love making new recipes but they are often just a variation of something I already make.  This year I want to be more adventurous in the kitchen.  One year I tried cooking from other countries and I’m going to bring that back!!!

6.  Growing our Business  – I’ve had 4 months now to get my feet wet as a business owner.  Now I think I’m ready to try to expand the business.

7.  Living every day to the fullest!!!  Above all, I want this year to be enjoyed.  I want to spend time with my boys and Chris having fun and appreciating all of the little things that come along every day!

Happy Wednesday and Happy 2014!!!
