A Bright and Shiny New Year

I love the beginning of a new year. There is so much hope and promise with resolutions and everything just starting fresh. Every year starts this way, but this year....I am just really feeling it. It is going to be MY YEAR! The absolute best ever. Why am I so certain of this? For starters....

1) I am turning 30. I suppose I should be moaning the loss of my 20's, but while they were great, I am so ready to see what my 30's bring. I have not decided what I am going to do to make the actual day of incredible, but I have thoughts going through my head for sure.

2) I am getting married! Seriously, what can be better than that? Ok, so the reality of it is that the planning of a wedding is not so fantastic, but the marriage itself is going to be incredible. :) I had actually thought about scheduling my wedding the weekend of one of my triathlons and doing the tri in the morning and getting married late that afternoon. It was a sprint so really should not be a huge deal, but I decided to be rational and schedule the wedding the week before. Then the tri can be at the end of our honeymoon! Still maybe a little over ambitious, but it is still worth a try.

3) I am going to be fit. Period. My whole goal is not to be skinny for my wedding, but fit and happy. I have about 40 lbs I would like to shed and have already started to put a dent in that thanks to my new bike trainer. I usually am pretty bad about not touching my bike until March or so, but this year I have a huge head start on my training and it feels great. I have to say that riding on the trainer is a lot harder than I thought it would be. I am not 100% sure why that is, but I really feel it when I get off of the trainer.

Why do you think 2010 is going to be fantastic for you?

oh geeze don't schedule a tri on the same day as your wedding! you'll be all stressed out and you won't enjoy the whole wedding thing. my goal for 2010 is to keep my family healthy and productive. Plus stay afloat! Oh yeah and to get thru race season injury free.

Haha, I was thinking that the tri on the day of would get out all of the nervous energy, but don't worry, I won't. It will be the next weekend!

It sounds like you have a lot to look forward to in 2010! I can't even believe you considered doing a tri the same day as your wedding! Maybe a trip to the spa, but not a tri. I'm glad you moved it to the end of your honeymoon!

It sounds like you're going to have a great year! I actually liked planning my wedding. (I might be crazy.)

I'm going to have a good year because I am going to try to chill out about things and just enjoy. :)
