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?
