Looking forward...

Admittedly, I've been a little self indulgent lately. Sleeping in until 7am, eating when I feel like it, drinking a few cocktails along the way, yes, by myself, I live by myself....get over it.

Taking time off of work until January 5th, how cool is that?

But self indulgent, yes, why not I ask myself? You have been busy in 2008 and you need time to find your "why's" for 2009. So far I've not.

Well, I am working on it, they just hasn't been vocalised yet. You can dream about anything you want, but until you share it with someone, either by talking about it or by writing it down, it is just that ~ a Dream!

The last two days have been spent down in my little cottage basement cleaning up "stuff" that has been collecting since I raised the cottage and put a basement under it close to six years ago.

Running hasn't exactly been on my mind, well, it has, but I still haven't strapped on the kicks and got my sorry ass out the door. But I will!

2009 is a clean slate, last year at this time I was tapering for the Phoenix Rock n Roll Half Marathon. Nothing quiet so exciting this year (yet).

So, 2009,
  • be a little more social, not such a hermit,
  • find a manservant, (just kidding, it'll happen when it happens)
  • save $$$ for the Honolulu Marathon in December 2009,
  • work on a healthier lifestyle,
  • get back into a workout routine,
  • get my face out of the bloody Caesar's,
  • get back to running for the joy of it, do what I can, achievement is up to me!

Nothing earth shattering so far, but hey, at least I'm not dreaming about it anymore, I've shared it with you, now let's put it in motion!

Life's fun if you don't weaken,

Those are excellent goals for 2009. Honolulu - wow!!

Enjoy your time off a little indulgence. I've been doing the same. I think we deserve it.

Take care!

Alexandra said...

Your goals are realistic and achievable! I'll be staying posted to see your progress as the new year rolls on!

My choice has been wine over cocktails, and yes, by myself! I need to get out and stock up again.

Your new background is very pretty!

You'll get back in the groove swift-like :-). I'm so jealous... HONOLULU!?!?! Laura just did that and although the weather sounded horrid she did say it was the best vacation ever.

Hmmm, your goal of 2009 of "get my face out of the bloody Caesar's" is that Caesar's Pizza or Caesar's salad???

ECrunnergirl said...

Vickie said...

Hawaii! Now that's my kind of a trip! I'm like you on not yet vocalising what my plans are for next year. I have a litle more figuring out to do as well. Can't wait to hear what you'll be up to!

Run Mommy said...

Excellent goals! I was intrigued by Hawaii...maybe I should consider that one too. :)

I've gotta roll with the healthier 2009 lifestyle as well . . .we shall see how that goes HAHAHA

SuperDave said...

Don't feel to bad that's what the holidays are. Overindulgence.

RunToFinish said...

I like to run without a goal or plan, just to run and listen to some music.. that keeps the joy of it alive for me.
