It's 2014!

I spent this New Year's Eve with my favorite people in my cozy apartment in DC.  We had lots of champagne, cheese, dips, and bacon-wrapped treats.  Probably drank a little too much, and the spraying of the champagne at midnight was slightly unnecessary, but it was the perfect night of great conversations and a lot of laughter.  On nights like that I am able to let go of any inhibitions and anxieties just enjoying being with the people I love.

And now the new year begins.  I absolutely hate the diet obsession that is inescapable this time of year, it really gets to me.  I hate how crowded my gym gets - my spin classes fill up, there are lines at the showers, no available treadmills.  Trying to just ignore it and focus on the positive.  I have a few resolutions that are definitely NOT diet friendly:

1)  Blog more.  It is such a release for me, I just need to find the time to sit down and write more posts.

2)  Listen to my body.  Sometimes I force myself to go to the gym when my body is screaming at me for a rest day.  This poor guy has seen way too much action lately...

3)  Cherish every moment.  I get so set in my routine, sometimes I miss the beautiful, simple moments like these...

4)  Tell this guy more often that he is the best thing that has ever happened to me...

Do you have any New Year's Resolutions?
