Default The Year Ahead - 2010

I hate the idea of New Year Resolutions, it fills me with thoughts of ill thoughtout plans forced to pledge during drinking excesses with friends & families...

So it's not a resolution (in my mind) but more of a desire to be fitter and healthier so i enjoy as much of what NZ has to offer as i can, so having bought a bike last year, i plan to get out and about on it more in the year to come and to also join a gym, litterally 2 mins from work so i'm fit enough to ride the bloody thing...

Anyone else with plans/ideas/wishes they aim to achieve in 2010?

1) Sell house (not for bargain basement either )

2) Move to NZ

3) Grab life by horns

4) Enjoy the now!

5) Stop telling the kids, mummy is busy just give me a sec, then ignoring them

1. Decide what to ship and what to take on flight.

2. Train son in domesticity.

3. Not to get stressed about arrivng in NZ and not knowing where we'll end up.

4. Embrace life and living in NZ

Could go on but think thats enough for this month!

I too want to get back to some exercise and managed to convince friend and neighbour last night that she'd like to do the Rotorua half marathon!

Get all these holidays out the way, maybe by the middle of the week, rediscover the gym.

Only problem being I appear to have sustained a serious back injury on NYE ... no idea how ...
