Hello 2012!

Wow! Is it 2012 already?

I'm playing catch-up, because as you can see, I spent the last week of 2011 in Florida with my family:

I so badly wanted to write a post while we were there, but I didn't have PC access to the Internet, just my phone. And truthfully, I was way too tired at the end of each day to write. But we had a blast! And the best part? Hearing my son say over and over again how "awesome" it was that we spent a whole week as a family. Yes, my ex-husband, my now hubby, my son and myself all went together. And we all got along (we do anyway). And my son loved it! It truly warmed my heart to see the joy on my boy's face. That was the best part of the trip for me!

And now, on to 2012!

I don't have much to say about the new year. I don't have a word or concrete resolutions. I chose a word last year and it was a total fail for me. (The word was 'discipline', like I would be more disciplined with my eating/exercise and disciplined in creating art, etc.)  I did lose some weight, but I took a break and went back to old habits. I've maintained the loss, but still have 30ish pounds to go.

But I don't want losing weight to be the main focus. I want to be healthier. I have a goal that I want to be fabulous by 40 (which is 2 1/2 years away). I want to look the best I've ever looked and FEEL the best I've ever felt. So that will be my focus for 2012.

And, I need to become more social. I spend the majority of time at home and I've really learned to isolate myself. SO, I've signed up for a local art class in January. It's an altered book class (as close to mixed media as I could find) and I'm nervous because I can't hide behind a computer. But I know this is good for me. And I'm really looking forward to meeting some local artists!

That's it for now. I love reading every one's take on the new year, so I think I will grab a cup of coffee and take in a few blogs this morning.

Peace, Love, and Chocolate
