A fly-by post this morning to wish you all a safe and happy New Year’s weekend!
I’ll probably be snoozing when the calendar rolls forward, but I’ll be celebrating before and after in my own special way.
For the past few years, my observance of this momentous event is to get in a good workout on New Year’s Eve afternoon and then turn around and do it again first thing New Year’s Day. I think of it as a set of Exercise Parentheses around the year. No matter what else happens during the year, I feel good knowing that I started and ended my year with exercise!
Unfortunately, due to The Great Christmas Cookie Extravaganza of 2010, I will be bypassing any major splurges. Or, I don’t know, I might get wild and not measure my peanut butter or toss an unrestricted number of walnuts on my yogurt. But that might be too much excitement for one weekend, even New Year’s. Maybe I’ll just have an extra pear.
However you celebrate (or not), I hope you’ll have a wonderful New Year’s weekend. Be safe and be happy!
