In For A Penny, In For A Pound

Posted on January 6th, 2011 in Budge That Pudge, Life List, Made In Alberta, Mating And Relating

2011 got off to kind of a rough start.  The day after our fantastic NYE Luau party (which was a grand success) I started my period AND came down with a really bad case of the flu, all while Jack and I were in Edmonton spending a few days with his family.  I was very ill, and feeling unsurprisingly abysmal, not just physically but mentally too.

On the 3rd, we went to my mum’s where I spent a couple of days recovering, before finally getting home last night.  It was so lovely to sleep in a familiar bed, with company, while not feeling like some hideous mucous monster was going to explode out of my face.  I had a solid, although rather brief sleep.

Now that I feel (almost totally) healthy again, I can get back to making the most of this brand new year!  Lots of great things in store for us.

On Monday Jack and I are kicking off a fitness challenge, competing against each other to see who can lose a higher percent of body mass (not number of pounds).  My mum got us a Wii Fit and The Biggest Loser program with it, and we are doing a 12 week challenge to see who can get fittest first.  The winner gets a $500 prize, to spend on whatever they want (I plan to take a shopping spree at Mountain Equipment Co-op).  We are both REALLY excited!  I plan to kick his ass via a combination of healthy eating, hitting the gym, and a lot of outdoors activities.  I will be posting periodic updates on that I am sure, and of course, at the end of the 12 weeks, I will happily gloat about winning (hee hee).

Speaking of outdoors activities, this weekend I am putting together a little tobogganing party on Saturday afternoon.  It’s P’s birthday tomorrow, so we are sort of incorporating that in as part of the festivities.  Hot chocolate, cupcakes, and sliding down a hill sounds like a great way to spend a day.  Maybe afterwards we will all grab an early dinner out somewhere.

Later this month Jack and I are celebrating our 9th wedding anniversary (10th year together) and all of the planning has been left up to him, so I am completely in the dark as to what we are doing, but I am excited about the surprise.

I’m planning to get in some snowshoeing this month, and also I’m on the hunt for a new job!  It will be nice to work out of the house again, and I want to be able to save up some money for University, and a few other exciting possibilities that are on the horizon.  I overhauled my resume while I was visiting my family, and this evening I plan on applying to some jobs online, and tomorrow I hope to get out and drop off applications.

2011 is looking SO exciting!  I don’t really make NY resolutions, but a few items I’m hoping to cross off my Life List this year include:

24. Take belly-dancing lessons

41. Take tango lessons

80. Play paintball

116. Eat at the revolving restaurant in the Calgary Tower

325. Make beef jerky from scratch

382. Make a scrapbook for someone as a gift

396. Go back to school

434. Make bannok

447. Ride The Mindbender at West Edmonton Mall

519. Camp in the winter

I love the feeling of a fresh year and a fresh start.  Here’s to another great year!
