Happy 2014!

Hope you all had an outrageously pleasant end to 2013, and are off doing wholesome healthy virtuous fun things today!

On the theory that sitting in front of a computer is not the best way to greet the new year, I'll wait 'til tomorrow to reprise the monthly New Year's Resolution/Goals/Check-in Thing for 2014. But I can't wait to hear what you all are up to.

However, fortunately not all fitness bloggers are as lazy as I am, and if you like to greet your new year with a bit of inspiration:

Our pal Jody has a great reminder about the importance of laughter over at Truth to Being Fit;

And a clever trick for optimal use and recycling of gratitude gets two different takes, one from MizFit, and one from the bluntly honest and unapologetically foul-mouthed Starving Bitch who has had a hella tough year;

And Happiness Savored Hot has a thoughtful compilation of advice gleaned from 2013, some of which might be quite useful going forward!

Well, unless zombies attack and meteors destroy the earth in 2014, in which case you'd probably be better off just enjoying a WTF spree of sloth and impulsive spending and overindulgence in all manner of things.  Totally your call.

Have a Happy New Year and see y'all soon!


  1. Happy 2014 to you, Crabby!

  2. Oh, I just noticed my pen name in here! Sweet! Thank you, Crabby! A wonderful year to you! :-)

    I can't wait to read your next post.

  3. Happy New Year! Let goals be met this year!

  4. Happy New year Jan!!!!! Thank you so much for including me!!! I thought I needed to start out 2014 a bit different. ;) I am headed out for some sun soon though! HUGS!!!!

  5. Happy New Year - I can't wait to see what all you have in store for the year with your new "group"!!

  6. Happy New Year Crabby et al! May 2014 be all you wish! I am shooting for serenity...

  7. Umm, do you know something we don't about the whole zombies and meteors thing? Maybe a hint on that one? Happy New Year!

    1. Well, the Breatharians are predicting the end of the world Courtney, and I don't think they specified exactly how, but naturally I figured it would be zombies and meteors and it was therefore worth stocking up on champagne and Ben and Jerry's just in case!

  8. I started the year working, of course! I still look forward to having regular days off sometime soon. I hope. I think.

  9. Just back from a lovely day spent mostly outside (sorry, all of you who don't live in such hospitable climes) and thank you all so much for the fun comments and the 2014 well-wishes, if that's even a word!

    And "Goal" post coming tomorrow!

  10. Happy New Year Crabby !
    Let's start the year to let what' gone,
    appreciate what's remain,
    and look forward for what's the next challenge.


  11. My cat managed to do the same thing. Last night while watching tv I heard this bang upstairs figured the cat got into something as usual I go upstairs and the container (identical to the one the cat is in on your image) and it's 5 feet away from where it was housed and on its side with surprisingly no food spilled from it. I'm surprise someone didn't have a little belly ache last night.
