Happy New Year.....better late than never, right?

As Father Time turned another year older, so did I (well not til January 11th, but technically we are all going to get a year older this year regardless of when our special day falls).  My Bucket List always gets special attention this time of year as I reflect on last year's list and see how well I filled in the completed column and what goals were left undone.  As is common with my plan, what started out as a priority for the year changed along the way as my goals changed. 

This year my main goal is to run a 1/2 marathon!  That's it!  That is a lot (for me)!  I've been following a training program and it is going to happen.  Actually it is going to be a year of health and fitness!  I want to encourage others to join in the lifelong journey of fitness.  One day it becomes clear that our health is not a "6 weeks to better buns" plan, it is "LIFE" long, and finding the balance and the committment to make that a priority is the only way to be find success.  That day, for me, was nearly 2 years ago.  I have not lost much weight, but my health has improved and I feel wonderful.  Now when my lottery numbers come up....... it will be a perfect world!  Hee Hee! :)
