And just like that, another year is done. To be honest, I have mixed feelings. I hoped that things would be easier, but the reality is that nothing is. It would be dishonest to say I’m leaving the feelings of anxiety and worry behind in the new year, but I am going to do my best to mitigate them.
- Cardio: 2.51 miles, walking
After breakfast and presents, I walked myself to my cat sitting job to spend some time with the three awesome kitties I’m watching. It was freezing, but no snow. Boo.
When I got home, I got to work. My parents were coming, and we decided we would just have snacks and grazing type food. We made dips, and of course I put together a board.
No family photo but I did get this great one with my beautiful mom.
- Cardio: 5 miles, running + 1.19 miles, walking
Even though it was still cold, this run felt fabulous. I’m super happy to be getting in more miles.
We packed the car and started driving to Tampa. Part of A’s gift was a few days in Busch Gardens (we got fun passes, so we can go back, too). The drive was trafficky, but we were able to check out some of the holiday lights they have set up.
- Cardio: theme park walking
No actual workout today. We spend the day at the park. It was not super crowded, but some of the rides kept going down, so the lines were longer than expected. Part of it was the cold, but it was ok. A and I got to do a roller coaster together, and then we saw some awesome animals.
- Cardio: 4.88 miles, walking
Time to drive home.
Usually Wednesdays are running days, but since we got back in town later, I opted to just walk instead, with a break to care for the cats. And yes. It warmed up.
- Cardio: 5.14 miles, walking
I met up with J for this walk, which was fabulous. Yay! I apologize for some of the rewears, but I don’t have a ton of clothes appropriate for the weather.
It was good to be home. I did a little bit of tidying and cleaning up after Christmas. Nothing too exciting.
- Cardio: 6 miles, running + .2 miles, walking
Another six miles! And there was much rejoicing!
Happy first birthday to Leonidas! He got cake and presents and lots of love.
I took A to have breakfast with my parents, and then he left to spend the night with them. Love their relationship.
- Cardio: 4.75 miles, walking
Happy New Year’s Eve!
I started with my walk. As per usual.
And the rest of the day will be spent prepping for a get together with friends, and organizing.

I don’t know what 2023 is going to bring, but I do hope for good things.
