Happy 2009!

Resolutions...scratch that....goals...maybe

I have a few goals and they should be quite easy to accomplish as long as I keep the credit cards away from my purse and my finger away from the Amazon.com website...and stop going to the sports store and seeing new gear that I "have to have". Well, that is after I have purchased some jerseys in my new size.

I do have some big goals in the training department, as posted on my Chubbette blog. They are simple and they should be attainable if I get my butt off the couch and out on the road and lay off the tamales and tacos. I have such a hard time eating clean. I exercise about 15hrs a week and my body doesn't show it because I put crap in the tank. Why can't I like salad and grilled chicken all the time...stupid salad is for rabbits! Anyways, back to the big goals:

  • MARATHON--no, not a knitting marathon but a real running one. 26.2 miles of running. My goal to run my very first in less than 4 1/2 hrs.
  • 3 centuries--I want to bike 3 centuries with my friends this year and enjoy every minute of it.
  • LOTOJA Relay--Want to take a little tour before I go for the full 206 miles in 2010. I have a few friends interested in joining the team so this should definitely be possible...as long as I train going up hill for at least 50 miles.
  • Run--700 miles. I want to run at least 700 miles in 2009. I ran 650 in 2008 and I wasn't training for a marathon, this year, I should run a bit more since I am training for one.

Other goals:

  • Go on 3 family vacations: Moab, Yellowstone (never been there), and somewhere where I can see a nice blue beach, I am thinking Mexico :)
  • Go on a few getaway weekends with just hubby--cuz we need to keep the flame alive and we are entering our 8th year of marriage.
  • Work less or quit working altogether and spend more time with my kiddos.
  • Find a worthwhile job for hubby so he can too spend more time with kiddos.
  • Find information on how to become a Spinning Instructor and see what I need to get certified (besides losing the chubs!).
  • Knitting: knit with needles more!!! I have a few hundred patterns that I need to do, especially now that I am no longer a size XXL. Loom knitting...no goals, just go with the flow.  
  • Take more pictures of my kiddos and scrapbook them right away!

Those sound like great, ambitious goals. My goal is to someday taste those tamales. You can stop making them for you, and just make them for me. Ha. Ha.


Fun :) You'll love Yellowstone! Make sure to pass through West Yellowstone and troll all the fun little shops ;)

Impressive goals! May you meet them all and have a wonderful year <3


Impressive goals. You must be a glutton for punishment. ;)

The family vacations sound great. Take a Mexican Riviera cruise (Princess Cruise Lines is the best IMO), and you will see lots of blue beach. =)



Girl, you are CRAZY! But knowing you, you'll get it all done, including the LOTOJA and the marathon. You are an inspiration.
