The road ahead? OK, I can't resist the temptation for New Year's resolutions...sucker. So here they are:

- Get enough sleep so that I wake up refreshed and energized.

- Plan ahead so I'm never ravenously hungry, which leads to stupid food choices.

- Eat consciously, with no mindless "what happened to my sandwich?" moments.

- Find motivation by participating in the online community and challenges.

- Appreciate the strength of my body at the gym, biking and running.

- Spend a part of each day enjoying the outdoors - and bring the dog when I can.

- Be genuine and try to enhance other people's self esteem.

- Driven and committed are good, but frantic and frazzled are not!

- Seek balance and nurture positive beliefs, relationships and actions.

I'm part of a lose 10 lbs in 10 weeks challenge, will journal food on FitDay and I've signed up for a squat/sit-up/lunge challenge. All very virtuous!

Ugh totally missed that 10 challenge!

I am all over your #1 and #3 though!

Mindful eating! Check out @holisticguru

Those are great goals. I really like the last one. "Seek balance and nurture positive beliefs, relationships and actions".

How're you doing on the resolutions so far? I really like them. Inspiring.. Looking forward to catching up with you at the Swift Half if not before.

You haven't posted for awhile. Too busy? What have you been up to this month? Has it been cold and rainy in London? Raining here a lot, which is weird, since we usually have snow this time of year. I started teaching three new online classes. Fortunately the class sizes are pretty small. I'm going to Boise for a meeting for a Professional Development class I'm going to take on Monday. The fun never stops. :) See you in a few weeks!
