So, a new year. I'm a bit late with writing about it, but that's just how it goes sometimes.

New Year's Eve was spent at home with my fiance. We decided to order a huge pizza, cuddle up on the couch, and watch the entire extended edition of The Lord of the Rings trilogy back-to-back. We started around 5:45 PM and finished at nearly 5:30 AM; I was exhausted. I think we were both starting to lose it near the end of The Return of the King, but we survived! Woo!

Neither of us are big into making resolutions, but we did sit down last week and talk about what goals we want to work toward this year. We both decided that saving for a down payment on a house was a priority, since we want to start a family after our wedding next year and we just don't have the room for it. He's also been wanting a different job that doesn't make him feel so miserable each day, and I have a crafting business that I've wanted to do, but haven't had the nerve to actually do it yet.

I haven't shared my personal fitness goals with him, but I think he knows what I want to accomplish. My first personal goal is to put a large dent in my Walk to Rivendell mileage. I've already managed to do more these past two weeks than I had when I first started, so that's a good sign.

My second goal, which ties into the first one, is to start training for a 5k. I'm still working on walking those three miles, though I'm getting better and faster. I hope that I'll be able to run a decent distance by this summer, and maybe do the local Turkey Trot 5k in November. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Lastly, I want to get to a point where I feel comfortable enough with my body to go try on wedding dresses. I've put off wedding plans for over two years because of how uncomfortable I am with my size, but I can't do it anymore. I'm not going to let that beat me.

Yay, motivation.
