2015 was the year....

2015 was the year...
  • I ran 12 5ks. Not the most miles I've ran in a calendar year, but definitely the most organized races I've done. And side by side with my best friend. (Well, behind my best friend...girlfriend is fast.)
  • I started kickboxing. I joined Farrell's in April, and I still absolutely love it. I seriously want to be a fighter. No, seriously. Quit rolling your eyes. You can be a lover AND a fighter.
  • I got four new family members (and lost one, but never mind to that). John finally officially brought Kim 2.0 into the family, along with her two great kids. And Nicole and Eric brought little Quinn into the world, who gets cuter each time I see her. 
  • I got obsessed with, then annoyed with, zombies. I binge watched The Walking Dead so much that I started having dreams (well, nightmares) about zombie attacks. Then I hit a spot where the stupid sounds and the way they move annoyed the piss out of me. So I watched everything on Netflix, but have yet to start the current season that is all on my DVR. I need a little break.
  • I started using products from It Works, and started getting all the fruits and veggies I need in during the day. I feel better than ever! 
  • I didn't get a promotion at work. I tried for it, and for a hot second I really thought I wanted it. I was upset when I didn't get it. But then stuff started happening, and I realized it was a true blessing in disguise I didn't get it. Wow. Dodged a bullet there. 
  • I turned down a job. About the time I didn't get promoted, I started throwing my name around for other jobs. I got an interview, and then I got an offer. But it didn't feel right, and it didn't feel like the right time to leave my students, so I turned it down. But it's nice to be wanted. 
  • My grandma died. I still have moments where this fact is still processing. Especially when weird things happen, like the glass from a frame with her picture in it mysteriously falls in the middle of the night. 
2016 will be the year....
  • I run at Disney World.
  • I lose the weight I've put back on. (While not being crazy about it...I need to find a good balance.)
  • I continue with Farrell's.
  • I slow down and be more observant with the things around me. 
  • I'll run another half marathon (I'll just spend the entire thing chasing John and Kim). 
  • I'll go see my aunt again and not go into a depression when I have to come back to Nebraska.
