So....I have always loved wines....all types...from the New world, from the old world, whites, reds, bold, bashful! I have always had a fascination with it....going to tasting, talking to sommeliers at restaurants, reading reviews, and taking Tours of wineries. But with all of this information, I have never really taken any formal courses.
I did this challenge last year, and it was a great success. It gave me an opportunity to clean out the boxes, emails, mail, and anything else that was "cluttering" my space.
as I have recently moved into a new home, this will be a great motivator to get some things cleaned up/cleaned out!
I am a busy person...I am married to my job, and do not necessarily take the time to connect/re-connect with family/friends. I did this challenge last year, and LOVED the outcome! I reconnected with friends, had great conversations and lasting memories of spontaneous get-togethers.
Because I love to read, I love a challenge, and I want to be sure that I continue this goal each year!
to change it up a bit, I have decided that I am going to include, as a part of the 50 books, at least 15 from the New Yorks Times Top 100 Modern Library list, found here: http://www.nytimes.com/library/books/072098best-novels-list.html. This will allow me to re-read some of those classics from the past, and also read a few which I have always wanted to dive into, but have yet to.
Actually, a good friend of mine wants me to help her achieve this goal, so we will train (virtually) together...as she lives in baltimore and I am in Toronto. We completed a try-a-tri in 2009...and want to challege ourselves again.
I was born in Toronto and raised in the suburbs, and now live in the heart of it all, and want to experience the many different places and cultures that is great city has to offer! I want to discover / rediscover this great city and all that it has to offer.
I see the tour bus go by, and yet have never been on one. I see tourists with their maps and books, and yet, wonder what it is that they are doing...what are they seeing, where are they going, and what are they saying on those tour buses!
Because it is time to put me first! Its not just about the releasing the weight, it is also about making smart choices with food and exercise. i did not put it on in a day...so I know that it will take some time and effort to release it.
