Of course, a year ago is when my blog was strictly about running and getting healthy. Now I blog about running and writing! My 2012 goals will be a mix of both, but that's another blog post.
I did meet some of these goals. Some of them I met and then reversed. Most of the goals will be brought forward to 2012. I haven't given up, only delayed some of them a bit. The goal that I accomplished that I am most proud of was running the Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon in San Diego!
HERE ARE LAST YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS:
2. To listen to my body (especially when it’s screaming at me to put the doughnut down!)
3. To lose weight (where does it go when you lose it? You know it’s hiding somewhere, because it always comes back).
4. To not get frustrated when my body isn’t cooperating with my plans (I am normal, supermodels are not).
5. To not listen to all the so-called diet experts (snack on carrot sticks when you’re hungry? Seriously?!!)
6. When life gives you lemons, make

What in the world does she have planned for me?! I don’t think she realizes that I’m 50! That’s 50 years old, people! And fat! And all sorts of other things, besides! (Please refer back to my previous blog on ‘excuses’). She’s only doing it because
On the lighter side, here are some words of wisdom that I have learned over the years:
Happiness is there for the grabbing; use both hands.
Apply life lessons learned; they are proven guides.
Pick good friends for life’s journey; it makes the trip easier.
Perspective takes time; step back and think first – things will look differently tomorrow.
Years fly by quickly; don’t wait for tomorrow to pursue your dreams.
New beginnings come with every new day; take advantage.
Enjoy small things as well as the big; good things can come in small packages.
Wealth is a frame of mind; material things don’t belong there.
You are unique in all the world; there is nobody else like you; you are special!
Excellence is overrated; it’s more fun to laugh at your mistakes.
Always follow your heart; it won’t ever let you down.
Resolve to be kinder to yourself; you deserve it.
2010 was my practice year, and now I’m ready for the real thing!
To my friends and family: I may joke, but I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your love and support, without which I couldn’t take the first step.
May you have Hope, Health, Humor and Happiness in the New Year.
God Bless and Godspeed.
