It’s Been Awhile..

I’m checking around my blog and realized my recipe index has not been updated since July. OOPS! We are already in November. Again.. where is the time in 2011 going? Just think, in about 3 weeks we will be enjoying a Thanksgiving feast. Then we will put the Christmas tree up, Santa will come and then we will ring in the new year of 2012. It is crazy, I don’t want to keep getting older!

Every year I set a few goals I’d like to achieve for the new year. I always want to achieve them but sometimes life gets in the way. My goals for 2011, well some were made and some were broken.

2011 Goals:

  • Figure out what I want to do in life!
  • Run another race, possibly a 10k or half marathon. Will someone join me?
  • Continue to expand on my blog to increase readership and have people love visiting Fallon’s Cucina!
  • Spend more time with my boyfriend and build a stronger relationship. Goodbye long distance relationship!

-Well.. I never ran any races. I simply just don’t like running a distance longer then a 5k. I’m glad I’ve accepted this realization and I’ve moved on. Instead I finally brought Body Pump into my life, which has been a blast.

-I didn’t work on my blog like I would have liked too. I’m sorry. I’m disappointed I didn’t do more but I also need to work. So finding a balance was difficult but no matter what I’ll always be around. Baby steps work for me.

-Well, didn’t see this coming. I moved back home to Las Vegas this year, after moving in with my ex-boyfriend who had lived in Texas and temporarily in Georgia, to end up back in Las Vegas single. Life is such a mystery and how much I’ve realized my life in 2011 has been turned upside down.

-I don’t think I’ll ever FIGURE out exactly what I want to do in my lifetime. I do know I’d love to marry a wonderful man and have babies. I’ve always wondered what it be like to have a bigger family. I now want this more then ever. I just can’t look for it.. and let it look for me. Right? In the meantime, I’m now employed full-time and will be starting my new job in 1 week. I’m very excited for this change in my lifetime and I need to prove to everyone I can do this. I have set some personal goals I’d like to hit a year from now.

With only less then 2 months to go I’m going to enjoy 2011. I have my family, I have my friends and you know what.. that is all you need sometimes.

Have you hit your goals? Are you already thinking about your 2012 goals? Do you even set goals for a new year?

Don’t forget that my recipe index is now updated! I forgot how good the vegan bean burgers, grilled basil chicken breast, pumpkin banana bread, and baked polenta rounds were. Which can all be found in my recipe index plus more! 

Oh yeah.. and don’t we look cute together? Too bad Brandon Vera is married, I tried!! LOL

One day you will reach all your goals!! At least you set goals, and know what you would like to achieve in life. I would like to run a 10k or maybe a 1/2 marathon this year. It would be nice to do it with you. I love reading your blog as Mom always says you are a great writer!!!

Those are some good goals! :) I'd love to run in a marathon or something like that in the future.
