A great start
How it everyone’s start to 2012 going? We have had a great couple of days so far.
Steve and I stayed in on New Year’s Eve after a fun day of shopping and taking Sophie to a local play center which she absolutely loved.
I love letting her explore on her own and interact with the other children. It gives her some independence. But that’s not to say we didn’t have fun either hehe.
So yes, Steve and I spent New Year’s Eve hanging out with take out, a movie (Hangover 2 – hilarious!) and some wine. It was the perfect end to the year. I’m actually surprised I made it to midnight. Ok, I didn’t.. but I did wake up just before Big Ben hit 12 and the fireworks went off. The display looked amazing in London, right where the London Eye is. Maybe we’ll get to go someday!
Yesterday I took our Christmas tree down and tried to put things in order a bit. It’s still a work in progress (Sophie was spoiled this year as usual), but we’re getting there. I have a lot more decorations this year that need to go into storage. Somehow we collected a lot more!
I started the year off right with a three mile run yesterday. I ran my last mile in 8:48! Seriously. I sprinted to the finish. This is exactly why I love my garmin, it challenges me to push myself!
One of my goals this year (I have many) is to keep up with exercise like I have been. It helps me to feel my best and I love the time to myself. I want to focus more on yoga too and other forms of cardio like spin.
This morning the weather was gorgeous so we took advantage of it and took Sophie to the park around the corner from where we live to feed the ducks!
I love doing things like this together, and it cost us a measly 65p (for the loaf of bread). Sometimes it’s the little things like this that leave lasting memories. These are the things I want do this year. We don’t always need extravagant ways of entertaining our kids (or ourselves for that matter!).
See that smile?
Hope you’ve been enjoying the start to your new year!!
What are your goals this year?
