The transition from 31 Dec to 1 Jan cracks me up every year. It is as arbitrary as political boundaries to the natural world. I never used to make resolutions but last year resolved to dance more. I am making another resolution this year…


Over the last few years I also have done vision boarding and have had some success with that process. I am vision boarding again this year but like most years I do it after the new year because there is so much to squeeze in with celebrating before 1 Jan. This year I sent out the evite a few weeks ago and am asking a sizable group of friends to join me in the party. We will be playing with our glue sticks next Saturday.

This week I kind of saved my empty calorie load for a brunch today where I had not one but two pieces of pie. Oh boy, I am now dreading the weigh-in with the midwife on Wednesday. Nah, not really. Now it is back to some cleansing and veggies after today’s planned potluck brunch with friends. The exercise… oh the lack of exercise. I have done the holiday squat-a-thon but need to push that cardio and I dread going to the gym this week. Ugh, new year exercisers.

Oh yeah, I am also in my third trimester now. 28 weeks. Feeling great too! I am much larger all up in the belly compared to my first pregnancy but still moving and living life with a smile mostly on my face.

Happy New Year all. I am still trying to buy some tickets to a DJ set tomorrow night so I can dance my pregnant a$$ off for a while. Wish me luck since the DJ was just written up in local papers and as soon as tickets go on sale on Craigslist they are snatched up. I am taking my husband to an Amon Tobin DJ set to dance our butts off to ring in 2013. I will also be around my Buddhist group a good deal tomorrow and/or Tuesday to take part in the 24 hours of Green Tara meditation they are doing. Yes – electronic music and meditation, it is all balanced joy. What are you all doing for the new year? Whatever it is be safe, be joyful. Rock 2013 from start to finish!

      Definitely do a vision board if it is calling to you. Even if it is small with one or two goals on them. Have a great new year.

  4. Good luck getting the tickets!! 🙂 Happy New Year to you!

      Thanks, I got tickets and sure enough they seemed to exponentially go up in price the following day. Happy New Year!

  5. Dancing in the new year seems like a great plan!

  6. You are right! It is really funny how the difference one night can make for some people (me included). I think with a new year everything seems so possible like buying a new outfit to make myself feel better. I hope 2013 is a great year for you.

      The party I was at was fun. Ear plugs definitely came in handy and I left feeling a good kind of sore through my legs, arse, back and arms. FUN FUN FUN! Hope you have a great 2013 too!
