Merry Christmas To You!

plans and goals

Merry Christmas!

It is amazing to think another year has come and gone…

How was your year? What did you get up to?

Did you achieve any long-term or short-term goals?

It can be really important for our mental health and our sense of purpose to think back over what we have accomplished, as well as thinking ahead to new (and continuing) goals in the coming year.

With the new year fast approaching, I also started to think: What did I do this year?

At first I couldn’t recall anything specific (I’ll blame that on “baby brain” for now), but I soon remembered some of the things that made up quite an eventful year for us.

So here is my little Christmas wrap-up of what I did this year and what I plan to do next year.

What I did in 2015

Half Marathon – My first (and so far, my only) half marathon

Weight Lifting Course

Tai Chi Course

World Travel with a Toddler

On Thanksgiving we celebrated three years living in the USA

100 posts! (This is number 100 for 2015, and number 150 in total)

Lots of new recipes, including lots of firsts (making ice cream for the first time is one example)

My 35th in Sweden

Blog Birthday: The blog turned one back in April

The start of HTT&T’s awesome partnership with Akta-Vite, back in January. It has been great fun developing these drinking chocolate recipes. Thanks also to Akta-Vite for helping get me through my pregnancy and training sessions!

Two 5Ks while pregnant (certainly a new challenge for me; running with a baby bump)!

Started on some big new projects… Stay tuned for these in 2016!

What is in store for 2016

Baby #2 will be joining us mid-year (announcement here)

Yoga retreat coming up in January 2016

My triumphant return to regular yoga classes – hurrah!

And, as I mentioned, some major projects are in the works… More will be revealed soon…

Finally, a big thank you to readers and friends who have inspired me with their thoughts on new topics to discuss here on the blog.

There is much more to come in 2016, so until then, have a safe and happy Christmas break!

5k 1

I participated in two Fall/Charity 5Ks (Saturday 5 December and Saturday 12 December) which was a lot of fun. Baby on Board added ten minutes to my usual time but I was so grateful and happy to still be running!
