2010 Resolutions

**I am currently on vacation, but I thought you might want to know about some of my 2010 resolutions**

I know NYE was a few days ago, but did everyone have a fun New Years Eve? I rang in 2010 at a friends house in Philadelphia with a bunch of friends. It was a nice change of pace, but I admit that I did have a little too much champagne.

It was crazy to spend my 5th New Year with fiancé. I hope everyone had a happy and safe evening!

6 months ago, on my birthday, I listed out what I wanted to do during my 25th year. Here we are with 6 months before my next birthday and I thought that this was a good time to check out how I am doing so far.

What I want to do in my 25th Year (original post here):

  • Move back to Philadelphia – check, check & check!
  • Go Back to School – Check!
  • Complete NYC Half (check!) and Disney Princess Half (March 2010, it will be here soon!) I also added the Philly Half in that little mix too – Check!
  • See Britney again in her 2nd round US tour in Philadelphia – check, check, check and check – I posted about her DC tour when I was FIRST ROW here – Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4
  • Read More Books – Need to do more of this in 2010
  • Lose a few more pounds/tone up – I have maintained what I lost from my detox and hope to continue to tone up!
  • Re-vamp the blog – It’s in the works!
  • I am thinking of training for a triathlon – a marathon might be in the works, we shall see!

2010 Goals

  • Cook something new once a week – I got all these awesome cook books for Christmas, I really want to get into the habit of following a recipe and try to make something new weeklyDSC_0212
  • Do yoga 1-2 times a week (at least) – I really want to incorporate yoga into my workouts on a more regular basis, I think it will make me a better runner/athlete in the long run

  • Run longer, harder and faster than ever before. I set some good PRs in 2009 and want to continue that trend! I also would like to make a habit of finding new routes to run and change the scenery up every now and then!

  • Take a Cooking and/or Photography Class with a friend!

  • Spend more time reading books and less time in front of the television. I get so sucked into reality TV shows and watching Netflix every night. I need to take a step back from all that, and I have LOTS of books to read


  • Try Brussel sprouts – random I know, but they are on my to-try list and I just need to figure out what to do with them!

What are your 2010 resolutions?

    all good goals for 2010!

    this is my go-to brussels sprouts recipe – I used to hate hate brussels until I made them myself following this recipe and now I literally can't get enough. FRESH brussels ALWAYS.


    this is also a good one though the focus is on the tofu. but it has brussels for a complete meal – yum! http://www.101cookbooks.com/archives/caramelized-tofu-recipe.html

    If you love garlic (like me), then try this:

    And don't leave the stove while they are cooking. The will burn. And the house will stink. not that I know from experience or anything 🙂

    Great goals! I love your blog, it's so inspiring! I ran the Zooma Annapolis half as well, it was my first, too (and my only though…so far)!

    I recognize Animal Vegetable, Miracle on your shelf…Barbara Kingsolver included some recipes I can't wait to try…such as how to make your own cheese!

    We have a few resolutions in common: cooking more, toning up, etc.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who celebrates half birthdays!

    Brussels sprouts are so good!

    I just coat them in olive oil, salt & pepper (not too much of any of these) then roast them for 45 minutes at 450 degrees.
