It has been a while… but Happy New Years! I am sitting at my desk watching the snow fall, and really loving the snow. I love the quiet whiteness, the blanket that covers everything.
2014 was a wonderful year… I accomplished my two biggest goals, and so it only makes sense that I set 2015 off with the same lofty goals. I have quite a few, but I think the ones that are the most important and applicable to this blog and my audience are those that are related to health.
I promise that in 2015 that I will try to exercise more and harder and with an open mind. Up until recently, my only exercise was to put on a pair of sneakers and run until I couldn’t feel my toes anymore. I actually signed up for the gym, and have had some lessons with a personal trainer. It’s been great to get out of the box! Plus, with the perks of my gym, I’ve been hitting the pool to swim laps, and to take an occasional spin class. I have to tell you… I love spin class. LOVE it! Enough to haul my ass out of bed at 5:00am in single digit weather!
I promise to cook more. I didn’t spend nearly as much time as I wanted to in the kitchen…. when I did it was for convoluted, long projects that didn’t materialize on the blog or that I deemed to fussy to mess with. So, I want to focus on the good food, and spending time making delicious meals. I need to… because after working in the West Village and spending my entire paycheck on lobster rolls, steak tartare, and other ridiculousness I gained a solid 10 pounds because portion control is SO much harder when someone else cooks. So here is to cooking, taking care of myself, and really enjoying my food.
Finally… my catch all that I promise myself every year… I promise to be bright and happy. I promise to look at all the good in the world and focus on the good.
I am sending my love to everyone that has stayed with me here over the years, and I promise to come back more often with delicious food, exercise ideas, and other updates.
