Happy New Year!!! Welcome 2012!!

I pray you all had a fun and safe time ringing in the new year. I did so in bed :-) We were visiting family in AZ and were so pooped by 10:00 p.m. that I headed to bed. My husband came right along with me because unfortunately he got sick during the visit. I snored my way into 2012. Woot!

2011 was a great year but man did it go fast!! I don't know if it is because I was so busy, or because so many things happened, but it seems like it was only 6 months long. I am not one for making resolutions because, to be completely honest, I wouldn't keep them! However, I did a LOT of reflecting on the past year and I see why it went by so fast. I was very busy with work and my business, we were waiting for 9 months for the inevitable to happen with regards to my husband being discharged from the Air Force, we had many people we love who lost loved ones and lost 2 grandparents ourselves, I had my surgery, my son started high school, and probably the biggest thing was our decision to leave Las Vegas and move to the mountains of Arizona and all of the planning that goes along with that.

I am looking very much for what 2012 brings us. A new career for my husband, a new home for our family, a new community to move to, a new school for our son, a new group a friends to be made, a new opportunity to expand my business in a new area and new adventures for all of us!!
I will say that I am making a concerted effort with my husband to get to the gym at least 3 times a week. I also want to try something new at least once a month (like Zumba, Body Pump, swimming classes, etc) because I get bored with workouts. That may be challenging with, #1 staying at my mom's house 2 nights a week, #2 the fact that we like to go to the gym super early, and #3 the gym will be PACKED with all those folks who have losing weight on their resolution list, so it will suck getting there in the evenings when classes take place for at least 2 months. I am considering buying a Zumba DVD that I can just do at home, so if you have one that you recommend, please let me know!

I will also try to post on a more regular basis on my blog. It was terribly difficult with the holidays and everything that you have to do during that time. But now we are done with all of that and we can focus on the future!


  1. As you know by now I adore Zumba. It is so much fun and I never feel like I am working out at all. I think that part of the fun is being in a class, but I also have had great luck with the Wii game. I haven't ever tried a video. My advice is that it is supposed to be fun, not hard. So if you don't get all the moves don't stress about it, just keep moving, you'll figure them out eventually.

  2. I didn't even think about the Wii...thanks!
