Happy New Year!

Welcome 2010!

2009 was a great year for me. I made a lot of important changes in my life in the last year. I became a vegetarian and started practicing yoga. I got braces to correct a jaw issue which had caused me to have debilitating headaches almost every day. I started twittering and blogging about green and vegetarian issues which cause me to learn a great deal. All of this was very life changing in the best way possible. Also, thanks to my sister, I got a brand new nephew who I am madly in love with! 2009 was a really great year.

But, I know there are more good things to come so I am looking forward to 2010.

Here are my resolutions:

-Cook more. My husband and I rely too much on processed, packaged foods. This is not good for our health or the environment. I'm a terrible cook, but I think I just need more practice.

-Become more flexible. I am going to start to stretch a little bit everyday to improve my yoga practice and become more flexible.

-Be able to do real push ups. My upper body is so weak and I would love some beautifully toned arms.

I think these are all very doable, which is important so I don't get discouraged. I will let you know how I do!

How was 2009 for you? What are your New Years resolutions?


  1. What a great year for you! Happy New Year!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
    Yes, the coconut water worked wonders for me this morning, keep it in mind for next year :)

    I just started doing yoga this year, and so far I Really enjoy it. I have noticed my arms are nice and tones, which is something I never thought yoga would do! Like you, I Also want to cut out processed foods, although we are already pretty good with that, but we can always get better!

  3. That was a great year and you've got some solid resolutions for 2010.

    I would love to chat with you more about the braces and jaw issues because that is on my list to fix in 2010!!!!

    Hope you had a great night!

  5. Sounds like 2009 was a great year and that 2010 will be just as successful! I too must admit I should cook more.

    I should probably be able to do more than 1 real pushups as well,,, maybe we can check back in a few months to see how we have made out.


    Happy New Year,


  6. I'd love to get more into yoga, but as far as push ups body pump, taught at a lot of gyms, is where its at! You'll be doing real push-ups in no time!

  7. Hi there! Happy New Year! Here's hoping 2010 will be the best yet! I'm with you on the push up's I can't do a single one... definitely some strengthening and toning (Yoga) this year! Have a marvy day!

  8. I think you have great goals! The push-up goal was one I had for 2009 and I'm happy to say I accomplished it, so I can definitely tell you it's doable! And you'll feel bad-ass when you realize you can do real push-ups! :)

  9. 2009 was good, This year no resolutions but goals!
