Where have I been?

Saturday, January 03, 2009

There's an old Johnny Cash song that springs to mind at that question. .. If you have no clue what I'm talking about the song's "I've Been Everywhere."

Overall, 2008 wasn't a bad year for me, though I know many people that had a tough year. I got to travel to Chicago, IL and Ontario, CA to visit some spark friends and I must say I love them all very much. Friendships that are made here online definitely extend into the real world.
I also got to visit West Palm Beach, FL which is absolutely beautiful. Totally awesome place. I have to say though that the places I got to visit in So Cal are the most beautiful I've seen except for the Bahamas. I loved it there and could *almost* move.

Looking at the new year I still haven't decided on goals or resolutions. I do plan to finish reading the Bible thru, since I've never read it from beginning to end.

I also plan to focus on healthier eating and exercise again. I've come to the decision, that my goal of 105 just isn't attainable for me. I don't have the drive or willpower, to get that low and maintain it. I do enjoy working out and being healthy but I also enjoy cheating now and then, and stuffing myself with junk food. So, my new goal is somewhere between 110-115. I can maintain that and not feel like I'm depriving myself. Will I look the best that I'm capable of? No, but I'll be happy and still look just fine.

I am in school again now, so my free time is nonexistent. I'd like to say I'll be on spark everyday and track my food and my exercise, but I just don't see it happening. I think my free time would better be spent exercising rather than talking about needing to exercise... This will probably be my last blog for a while, but I'm still around friends, so don't forget about me! I don't plan to stop sparking, I'll be back whenever I get the chance!

    You did a lot of traveling this year! :) I think your goals sound balanced and reasonable. I've already adjusted to the lack of daily chatting (sigh) but it's probably for the best. Like you, I'm trying to focus on keeping up with life and staying healthy and will be on here when I can. I can't lose touch with my favorite sparkgirls! :)
