It’s a great time to start fresh. Start over.
The last couple weeks have been crazy. I apologize for not posting. I wanted to – really did. I was sick with a nasty cold. Then my husband was sick with a nasty cold. We were out of town for two weekends during the holidays. Which meant I have to squeeze my business in between the trips to Southern California to see my step grandkids.
Then my Mom had a minor heart attack early in the morning on Christmas Day. It’s her first Christmas in sixty years without my Dad.
Thank goodness Mom was in Denver at my sister’s home – and not by herself in Florida. She had surgery Christmas day to put a stent in one of the major arteries that supplies blood to the heart and she’s doing much better.
On New Years Eve Ernie and I went out to dinner. I had two glasses of wine and was home and out like a light by 9:30 pm. Ernie woke me up at 11:30 pm to watch the Las Vegas New Year’s fireworks on television at midnight. We hugged, kissed and then I slept another seven hours.
So do you think I’m happy it’s a New Year?
You bet I’m happy. Ecstatic actually.
Like most people – I’ve set some healthier goals for myself for 2011. I’ve already been to the gym twice – which is pretty good when you consider I hadn’t been there since last July.
Seriously, it’s time to set aside all the baking and dark chocolate and focus on simple, fast, fresh – and yes, adventurous food – that will help all of us feel better, more energetic and slim down if that’s your goal. It’s about finding adventure in more than just food. Join me!
