My New Years Resolution for 2013 was to try one new thing a week. See something I’ve never seen before. Visit somewhere I have never been before. Something simple & totally doable. I want more life experiences!
Started my new year with the Polar Bear Plunge on Pensacola Beach. First polar bear plunge. It was about 70 degrees outside…BUT the water was below 50! It was pretty cold! And honestly, I wanted it to be freezing out. I wanted the real experience. On the same day, at the same exact time, my cousin, Jimmy, was being tied to a rope and jumping into an icy lake in Wisconsin. It was so cold, he had to be tethered to someone! I want that experience. Haha. The water was still spine-tingling, needles jabbing into your legs cold.
Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures from the plunge. My friend took a bunch of pictures…but doesn’t have Facebook. I’ve asked for some because I want to do a “New things 2013” scrapbook. But I haven’t gotten those texts yet.. I’ll ask again.
Also in Week 1, I went to my first live pro-wrestling show. I noticed my nephew was a huge fan of WWE so I bought him tickets for RAW for Christmas. We had a blast. It wasn’t as showy and dramatic as it is on TV, but that might be because we’re a small town and the arena wasn’t even filled. They might save that drama for large cities.
I ran my first 10K! I’ve ran a bunch of 5Ks. A 15K. And even a half marathon. Finally, a 10K! And my first run on the road of Pensacola Beach. It was not an easy run. I signed up last minute. I wasn’t prepared. Didn’t eat right the night before and didn’t get much sleep. It was bad. Really bad. Probably the worst I’ve felt during a run. And while walking at one point, I thought to myself, “Did I really run a half marathon a couple weeks ago???!!?” Bad.
This week, I went to my first self-defense class, offered by Running Wild. Jackie played a great pretend rapist. Haha. She left finger bruises on my forearms! It was a great class, though. I didn’t think it would be that easy to get out of a strong man’s grip. STRANGER DANGER!
Bahahahahahahahahahaha!! Just push play…trust me….

Pretty much describes how I feel about the Packers right now.
I’m usually not into guys who are huge and muscular. Or guys with long hair [Thor Mode] BUT Chris Hemsworth is so delicious! I want to sit on his face!
