Happy New Year

Cheers to a gentle and prosperous new year, my friends!  No matter what 2016 brought into your life, be it good or bad or a bit of both, I'm wishing all of us the very best and a much improved 2017!

How did you spend your New Year's Eve?  Were you out at a fabulous and fancy party?  Or at a fabulous and low key party?  Or did you stay in and get take-out?  

I had plans with a friend that got derailed on her end but as it turns out, would have eventually been derailed on my end too.  I was sick.  Just as I was the previous NYE {though I actually went out and had a fabulous night last year anyway...and then paid for it in an extra week of sickness to start my 2016}.  So this year, I never left my home.  Actually, I never even left my pajamas.  I did shower mid day, but changed into fresh pajamas.  And because my fabulous PBS station must have known I would be poorly, they had a Downton Abbey marathon playing all weekend.

Honestly, it wasn't a terrible way to ring out the old year and in the new one.  Just me, the Crawley family, NyQuil, and Gatorade.  Good times.  

My New Year's Day was spent much of the same.  And I'm fine with that.  I had some fun text convos with all my friends and just indulged in TV and blankets.

So I set out my December to do yoga everyday.  And while I am counting it as an accomplishment, I will admit that a few days were barely a true workout.  The reason I am counting it though is because I did something when I normally would have done nothing.  I keep the momentum.  For me, that is a HUGE accomplishment.  And most days, I did a really good workout.  Which is also more than a normal month for me.  Overall, it was a really positive experience.  And one I aim to repeat in January.

Even though I felt like crap today, January first, I got on my mat!  I did it.  Not my best, as I had to stop and blow my nose every few minutes.  But I got there.  And I felt so much better afterwords .

The only other thing I checked off my Jan first list was filling out my very first entry in my new diary.  I bought one for me and one for District over a month ago and have been itching to get started.  It's such a great concept: every day there is a single question prompt.  That's it- just one single question.  You fill in your answer and then you're done for the day.  The clever part is that it's a three year diary.  So you fill in the same question each same day of the year.  January first is just one question, January second is a different question, January third, and so forth.  So in three years time I will be able to see how I answered the same question differently {or the same} over the years.  

I had a giggle earlier though when I posted this photo to Instagram because it wasn't until after I posted it that I even noticed it is for a couple to do.  I filled it out, using both spaces for myself, and never noticed.  Oh well...more space for me...I'm cool with that.

I hope you're weekend has been relaxing and wonderful, whatever that entailed.  And I hope your January 01, 2017 included checking a few things off your list!
