Another year over...

Hi everyone! Happy New Year's Eve! I can hardly believe that 2009 is already coming to a close.  In a year, (and probably in ten years) I'll be saying the exact same thing.  :)

I've been reflecting a little on the last decade.  So, here, in no particular order, are some of the things that have happened in the last 10 years:

-Lived in Billings, MT, Madison, WI, Austin, TX, and St. Paul, MN
-Moved a total of 7 times
-Stumbled around with my career a bit - not quite sure I'm finished doing that
-Met J, got married 5ish years later
-Ran my first 5K
-Traveled to Mexico, Monaco, France, Italy, Spain, Tunisia, Sicily, and a whole bunch of US States
-Said goodbye to my kitty
-Lost 30 lbs, gained back 60(!)
-Bought our first house

Those are pretty much the highlights, I think.  How fast a decade goes.  I'm just thinking about all of the emotions that are wrapped up in that one little list. 

I've also been floating around some of my goals for 2010.  Weight loss is, of course, the obligatory goal year after year - and actually, the last two years, my goal has been that weight loss NOT be a goal for the following year.  Alas, I'm going to add it to the top of the list:

-Reach and maintain a healthy weight
-Log 300 miles running in 2010
-Start a new daily walking habit
-Floss everyday
-Be better about keeping in touch with friends & relatives

There probably is little need to elaborate on anything in that list, but I do just want to make a couple of quick notes - the new daily walking habit is something I'd like to try - just 30 minutes of walking everyday.  Nothing stressful, no expectations, but just 30 min of walking. 
And, the 300 running miles logged should be an interesting challenge.  :)
