How’s 2015 treating you so far?! Awesomely, I hope. Before getting back to Fit & Fashionable Friday next week, I’m joining the lovely DC Trifecta (Mar, Courtney, and Cynthia) for the first Friday Five of the year. This week’s theme is goals for the new year. Since I chatted about that yesterday, I thought I’d take today to talk about things I’m looking forward to this year. Let’s do it!
#1 Seeing Billy Joel – Oh. YES! It’s happening. Billy Joel has been on my concert bucket list. I honestly never thought I’d get the opportunity to see him, but then I found out he’s playing at my alma mater (go ‘CUSE!) in March. Tickets were a great deal, so I jumped on it! Did I mention I’m going with The Fit Foodie Mama. Blends love Billy Joel :).
#2 The Syracuse Half Marathon – The same weekend Billy Joel is playing in Syracuse, there’s a half marathon. Soooo obviously I jumped on it! This race won’t count toward my NYRR 9+1 goal, but hey, a nice round 10 races this year sounds good to me. The race was sold out at first, but lucky for me, they opened it back up. Annmarie is running it to, so we’ll have a fun weekend of music and running! Hopefully it won’t still be freezing up there in March.
#3 Being a Personal Trainer – I’m hoping (fingers mega crossed) to pass my NASM cPT exam this month! I’m excited to start creating more workouts for the blog and maybe even coming up with a whole plan for you all!
#4 Decorating – I chatted about decorating for the holidays a few days ago. This year, however, I want to invest a bit more time and energy (and probably money) into home decor and interior design for the everyday of my apartment. My boyfriend and I have been slowly cycling out the hand-me down furniture we got when we first moved in together for things we’ve bought ourselves. Now, it’s time for me to get on Pinterest and start gathering some inspiration so we can make it beautiful and awesome. Any good boards I should follow? I love a modern rustic look, a la:
#5 Enjoying Life – Plain and simple. This is going to be the year of AWESOME and I plan to take advantage of every minute.
Also, don’t forget about the SPARTAN RACE GIVEAWAY going on over here! Get those entries in!
What are you looking forward in 2015?
If you could only go to one concert, who would you go see?
Shout out time: what’s your alma mater?
