So tell me whatcha want, whatcha really really want

Who loves the Spice Girls?! MEEEEE!! I hear they are going to do another tour, which you can bet I will be getting tickets to! My faovrite was Baby Spice! She was always the cute bubbly flirty one-hello! Me in a nutshell! Her and Ms. Geri Halliwell, aka Ginger Spice, were criticized for being overweight next to bean poll Vicky Beckham and Sporty Spice. Well not anymore- this(and 3 cups of coffee) have motivated me to run my 3 miles today

Ms. Emma Bunton (BABY SPICE)


So Little Mrs. Married has posted a little survey that I am participating in. Why? Because I can & I know you all wanna know stuff about me, mua ha ha ha!

1. What did you do in 2009 that you'd never done before?
I ran 3 5K's! I was never a runner and I took my health by the horns and lost 30 lb's and accomplished more than I could ever imagine
2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I did! I set the typical woman's resolution- to lose 30 lbs and to become a healthier person. I did it! Thanks to sparkpeople, and a gym membership, I. DID. IT!
3. How will you be spending New Year's Eve?
N and I will be spending time with my mom- we are taking her out to dinner and a movie- we are a crazy pair
4. Did anyone close to you die?
My grandpa died :( He had been batteling alzheimers for a few years and my family had sort of expected it. It was very sad, but we know he is in a better place with God.

5. What countries did you visit?
Unfortunatley, I stayed in the US of A! Hopefully in 2010, that will not be the case. N and I DID visit the whole country of America. Driving across it will do that.
6. What would you like to have in 2010 that you lacked in 2009?
A 8K or 10K under my belt and a baby on the way
7. What date from 2009 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
My 5K's and the accomplishments I've made with my health and weight
