Happy New Year & 2012 Recap


Did you stay up? I actually fell asleep watching 30 Rock around 11:30 but luckily I have the best husband ever and he woke me up in time to share the strike of midnight and a new year’s kiss 🙂 I’m trying to cut back on coffee thus I was very tired yesterday night.

2012 was a big year for our house – here’s a recap.

  1. taught my first (and probably last) yoga class at my old job – turns out I like taking yoga much more than teaching yoga, at least for now. People seemed to like my classes but teaching is just not for me! (January)
  2. I went back to my old job (I had left it for ~5 months, but missed it almost as soon as I’d gone). (March)
  3. My hubby and I bought an apartment in NYC. And then we renovated it (still renovating it…). (Closed in May; began renovations in November)
  4. I joined a CSA and discovered a farmers’ market on the corner of my street. (June)
  5. I joined Pure Yoga back at the end of June (and Bobby just joined in late November so now we can go to yoga together). (June)
  6. I fixed my PCOS. (Basically by eating more carbs, and more in general, more food more regularly.) I also ate a lot of PCOS bread. (July)
  7. Bobby and I went on a yoga retreat with Raghunath (August), and I tried Mysore Ashtanga yoga (July).
  8. Bobby and I went to Japan for 2 weeks for fun (and so I could finally – after 7 years of being together – meet his family!). (October)
  9. I went to India for 9 days for work. (December)
  10. NYC got hit by Hurricane Sandy – our home was unaffected, but my work lost power for a week and many of my friends and family members, including my parents, were also without power. Sandy Workout & Sandy Link Love.

What were the important things in your life for 2012?

  1. Happy New Year sweet Maggie! Been thinking about you and was wondering how the renovations were going… Still going. 🙂

    Sounds like it’s been a good year for us both. Just hope my 2013 includes a little more yoga. Missing it!

  2. Hi Maggie! I used to read your blog ALL THE TIME, but somehow lost track of it over this past year. Well, today, I was cleaning out some old emails, and found one where I had asked for your macrobiotic apple pie recipe, and you had sent me the link (I didn’t have a blog back then). Anyways, I clicked over here to see all that I had been missing! Wow. Thank goodness for a 2012 recap post! I’m excited to be back on board and reading in 2013. 🙂

  3. What a great recap Maggie! Lots of good stuff going on in your life – can’t wait until all the renovation is done – hope you’ll share the pictures! (I am a bit envious, my kitchen cabinets are made out of laminated wood – you can’t even paint them!

    Happy New Year!!
