Here’s to 2017

Another cliche new years resolution coming at cha! Just kidding. Just think of it as a post laying out some goals and aspirations for the next 365 days that just happens to be published at the beginning of January. Last year for New Years Resolutions, I went total blogger-psycho laying out 52 new thing I was going to try for the year (1 for each week) and failed. To be fair, I did actually experience a few things that were on the list, but in the end, I’m not sure I really achieved or learned anything overall. That is a lie. I learned that without television, my life is very, very quiet. This year, with a year of blogging under my belt, I know better and have some clarity on how I want my 2017 to look. Finish Ironman Atlantic City One of my biggest physical goals for the year is to complete my first Ironman 70.3 in Atlantic City. I’ll (hopefully) be swimming 1.2 miles, biking 56 and finishing off with a breezy 13.1 …

Just Tri It Out

Happy 2016! I hope you all had a fabulous holiday. Mine was lovely and very eventful: I got to spend time with my mom and sister and Booty-Dog I went up to Connecticut to visit Steven’s family on New Years, Two of my favorite people got engaged I got to snap a few photos of Steven’s sister Cathy and her fiancé Ted while they took their engagement photos AND I was chosen as a Fit Approach #SweatPink Ambassador! It was also full of new “tri-s”: I took an aerial yoga class, I cooked cauliflower 2 new ways (mashed and as rice), I ate pheasant that Steven hunted, I TRIED to get my wallet back after it was stolen, and last but not least, I made my 52 new “tri-s” list for the new year. One of my resolutions for 2016 is to do something new every week for each week in 2016. It is a combination of some random skills that I’ve read everyone should know how to do, a few goofy challenges, and things I’ve genuinly …

A Guide to Resolution Solutions

I can’t believe it either– it is nearing the end of 2015! I had two resolutions for 2015: to learn how to tap dance and to complete a triathlon. I’m happy to report I’ve done both. Knowing how to tap dance has always been a dream of mine. I love the rhythmic sounds and how indisputably cool everyone looks when they dance. I talked about it so long, in fact, that my two roommates at the time, bought me tap shoes for my birthday.*   *After getting a “surprise” wisdom teeth extraction without being put to sleep, my roommates felt extremely sympathetic for my bloody mouth and painful teeth holes…so they gave me my birthday present early. I opened the box to find a a shiny pair of Capezio Mary Jane style tap shoes. I immediately felt better, put them on and started clanking around our kitchen, a poor idea considering an increased heart rate boosted the amount of blood coming out of my teeth holes. I smiled at them and watched blood splash onto the floor …
