Like a carousel . . .

I wish that everything I encountered were like a carousel; a happy ride with music that is predictable and exciting with no scary bits. 

Hubby and I are pondering a lot about our future.  What that is, I can't say--not divorces or babies, I assure you.  We have a lot of things up in the air and we wish it were so much simpler to make definite decisions about our lives.  We have a really exciting vacation coming up for us.  I will show pictures when I return in January.  I will reveal about our plans after the New Year.

In the meantime, I will share that things have been the same.  Eating is still a struggle.  Exercise isn't a struggle because I do enjoy it and I find it a calming start to my day.  I am looking forward to the new year when I will once again commit to running and hope to train for a 10K.  I've been flirting with the idea of training for a half marathon.  But the notion is so absurd that I dismiss it and go back to the idea of a 10K.  For sure, I will do a 5K in the New Year.  I would love to do the 10K on my birthday, and I am sure there will be one scheduled for that day. 

How are you capping off 2010?  Are you going to start or begin with good and healthy habits to go into the New Year?  Or will you chuck it all and have fun with eating anything and everything and worrying about getting back on routine in the New Year?


  1. Rosa, it's definitely that time of year where we reflect on the past, think on the future and see where we need to make adjustments. It's nice that you can make these decisions with your husband vs. alone. It's funny how you've been thinking about the running and half marathon, I'm going there as well. I think to self "how can you contemplate a half marathan when you can't even get to a 10k." Great minds think alike.

    Enjoy your vacation and I hope to see lots of your great photos when you return.

    Feliz Navidad amiga!

  2. I need to clarify... I think it's great that you want to train for a half marathon. Just go for it. Train for it. You'll be pleasantly surprised by what you can accomplish when you just decide. I've recommitted and have a semi training schedule. Go for it friend. We can do this... You can run a half marathon by your next birthday.

  3. Since the holidays are so stressful for me, I am going to keep exercising and watching what I eat, but relax my goal of losing and commit to maintaining for the rest of the year. Come January 1, I will be getting back on track and looking forward to a great year!

    BTW, Rosa, I tagged you in my most recent post! :-)
