2012: The year that was
In 2012 I ran 1544 km, started doing CrossFit, got a tattoo, quit Citalopram and other than a break over summer holiday and Christmas – didn’t eat any sugar.
So all in all it was a good year, even though it didn’t start very well – MrB got labyrinthitis right as 2011 became 2012 and was very sick for several weeks.
He did eventually recover and no serious health troubles have bothered us since. I have actually hardly been sick at all this year, maybe it’s got to do with the crazy new year’s resolution I made (and actually mostly stuck to!)?
In March I though about Papa who passed away a year ago in March 2011… (I actually think about him a lot… not just in the month of March…)
In April I visited Amsterdam and caught up with my best friend from my sophomore year in college in Missouri – a crazy Dutch chick I hadn’t seen since 1997! I also pondered how meaningful running has become for me and decided to screw the PND and give up Citalopram.
In May we all visited Edinburgh to catch up with friends we met while living in Canberra. After that little holiday I spent several weeks stressing about a job situation (one that did have a very happy ending eventually – 5 months later!)
In July and August I took 9 weeks off work and spent most of it in Estonia. And because it’s a miserable rainy December right now I’m going to post these photos again to lift my mood :)
In November the winter blues started to rear their ugly head (especially since I’ve been off Citalopram since the end of April).
In total I wrote 567 blog posts in 2012 and after 7 years I’m actually calling it quits with this blog.
Only because I’m working on a new one :)
It’ll be a little “happy place” for me as I go through my midlife crisis and train for a marathon (Paris, April 7, 2013) and attempt to live not only sugar free but wheat free and dairy free as well!
Until the new blog opens up, catch up with me on Twitter, I’m ALWAYS on Twitter :)
Have a wonderful 2013! See you soon in my new blog!
