Shoot – I had a Dr’s appt this afternoon and got really stressed out!  My reponse was to stop at the fast food place and get french fries and dip them into ranch dressing.  Then later, I figured I had already fallen off of my wagon, so I got tortilla chips and quacomole!

Today was pretty good!  I went to the store on Thursday so it was fun to make the stew and cauliflower mash.  The bike ride was also really good.  It is quite cold out (14 degrees) so I wore A LOT of layers.  I only saw 2 other bikers, which is rare in Madison.   It is fun to ride past the community gardens and see the green Kale poking out of the snow!

December 31st

Today is New Years Eve!  Wow another year gone already.  I must be getting older as they seem to fly by a bit quicker every year.

It has been a wonderful year and here are some of the great things that happened:

  • Moved in with my loving g/f
  • Started my own web design business (holler if you need web help)
  • Started daily meditation / yoga
  • recommitted to the Eat to Live lifestyle
  • Started the path to self-love
  • Another year drug free!

I have not decided how I want today to be.  Do I go out with a healthy bang or do I throw in one last binge for 2009?

Seriously though…Today I will seek balance – perhaps a drink or too, maybe a bite of something sweet, a green smoothie for sure and a bike ride without a doubt.  Mostly I want today to be about celebration of life and of accomplishment – tomorrow I will look forward.
See you all in 2010!
