12 Things I'm Already Loving in 2012 - v2.

Last weeked I told you 12 things I'm already in love with about this year. I loved your responses and I loved how I felt about celebrating and appreciating a great start to this year. I don't know if this will be a weekly post per se, but expect many more 12 things posts in 2012. I want to make sure I keep my attitude in check and remember to be thankful.

1. Motivation. I feel so motivated to reach my goals this year. My 2012 goal was to lose 20 pounds...the I decided to do it BEFORE my trip to Haiti, in April. Totally doable. Losing 3 pounds this week to start it off? Feels good.

2. Outdoor workouts. Iv'e scheduled in a couple outdoor workouts per week. Because I'm lucky enough to live in Tampa, FL and the weather here is beautiful. Monday night I was headed to the gym when I switched directions, headed to the bayshore, and finished my workout by walking to the end of the pier to appreciate this view.

3. Being an Aunt. Even though my sweet niece, Noa, lives in North Carolina - I love sending her letters and getting pictures of her from my sister. I love being an aunt.

4. Goodreads. I don't care enough to find a bunch of friends but it's fun being connected to my blog friends who have set goals for 2012 reading lists too. I've been reading consistently... 5 books down...45 to go.

I'm going to combine these next two...

5. Shopping. I let myself do a little shopping this week. Which goes well with 6. Having the chance to wear my new sweater because it's chilly-ish for Florida this weekend.

7. Brilliant friends. When I had an investment dilemma this week - I knew just who to call (thanks Jon).

8. Scheduled travel. My trip to see my best friend is less than 3 weeks away.

9. Groupon goods. Got a camera for super reasonable to tote to Haiti with me.

10. Good hair days. I've actually had like 2 this week. That's fairly remarkable for me.

11. Baseball caps. Couldn't live without them.

12. The blog. I'm loving blog world lately.

So much to be thankful for and enjoy about this fabulous year.

Love your list! I'm a new "Tampa Blogger" follower and have to agree that working out outside here is amazing! I am getting ready to walk our dog and it's so nice out :-)
