My biggest thrill of 2010 had to be my entrance into the world of stand-up comedy, all in thanks to this man, comedian and now a dear friend, Al Ernst.
In terms of fitness and health and weight loss, I'm in a good place. I am doing better with increasing my running intervals, and in adding strength training. In 2010 is when I really started getting active w/ the Sisterhood challenges and when I met online the fantastic women of Shrinkvivor on Tribe Green who are now my dear friends. What's more, my recommitment to exercise and WW and getting healthy has inspired several friends to start moving too.
I also completed a bunch of 5ks and earned a certificate by doing 4 Women's Distance Festival races.
I took my first ever ride on a motorcycle, this bad boy. LOVED it!
Got to meet and interview Kathryn Stockett (below) author of "The Help" - one of my favorite books of all time. If you haven't read it yet, what are you waiting for?
And lastly but the most miraculous of all, I met a biological aunt I never knew I had, learned I have three more cousins out in the world (whom I CANNOT wait to meet in 2011) and learned for the first time about these people, my grandparents.
(this is a post for another time, an amazing story you would only see on TV)
It's also been a tough year - job wise and with some other issues going on, but I have come a LONG way in not eating everything in sight when I am going through those tough hurdles.
Dear 2011 - Please be gentle. If I work with you, you'll work with me, right? RIGHT!
