i forget i have this blog

yes, i'm pretty lazy at updating this blog. ahhh! that's a must remind myself to write here every once in a while... or at least, use it more often!

okay, i'm sure we all know by now, it's already 2010. omg.. a year's gone by and what have i done? ahhh! i don't know. still struggling with this whole trying to get toned, lose the baby pouch episode. anyway, i'll keep trying again! put it this way, i have until june to finally look smoking hot in a new swimsuit. let's hope this year is finally the year!

first off, i'm getting back to running again. yesterday, mark and i ran 5.25 miles! thing is, it's been difficult trying to not run as much or let's say... be "injury-free." it's awful. since suffering a groin injury last february has really messed up my running. i had to lay off of running for 5-6 months! i can't remember when i picked running up again, but i knew it was a way. actually, i think it was right before the sf marathon 5k run.. so yes, no running from february to late june!

anyhoooo... mark's making a lifestyle change. no land animals for him this year. that means, we'll be eating lots of fish and veggies. i told him i will do it with him most of the time. i can't say no to a little bit of good tasting steaks every once in a long good while.. and of course, the occasionally delicious, finger-licking-good bbq garlic chicken wings that i make (we had that as our last meal of 2009, with rice... oh so good!).

oh, 2010 is all about cooking more meals at home (i made my first ever shrimp bisque last night.. omg, it was sooooo good!), eating out less... not having reserved feelings about trying out new recipes and pretty much, just going for it. that includes just about anything and everything. i can't wait to see where we are this time next year. :)

alright, enough for now. more later.
