    I 100% get Janetha’s comment/post & didn’t do my own 2011 recap, but this is really awesome. While it will be a bit overwhelming sifting through all of the links, I’m excited to see what everyone shares – so the more descriptive the short explanations are, the better for me.

    *FITNESS/HEALTH* I love to travel & experience new places. I am also pretty particular about food & getting in exercise, so I share how I maintain healthy habits while traveling.
    http://colourmehappy.typepad.com/colour-me-happy/2011/08/travel-tips.html
    *WORKOUT* Though I did not continue to use this page separately from my main blog, this is where I posted one of the most challenging workouts I’ve created (~12 min). It is pretty full-bodied with only four bodyweight exercises broken up by a lot of sprinting. The sprinting is what kept it intense for me. Short & sweet.
    http://colourmehappy.typepad.com/idealform/2011/11/sprints-moves.html
    *FOOD* We made taquitos for the first time, which were so fun & easier than I expected: boil water, dip, spoon, roll, bake. Crispy & yum.
    http://colourmehappy.typepad.com/colour-me-happy/2011/09/spicy-black-bean-taquitos-a-blogging-update.html
    *SELF LOVE/IMPROVEMENT* While out bouldering alone, I videoed a brief vlog (~4 min) about overcoming mental barriers & persevering when “failing”.
    http://colourmehappy.typepad.com/colour-me-happy/2011/12/overcoming-mental-barriers-failures-vlog.html
    *PHOTOGRAPHY* Our entire San Francisco trip stands out to me, because it was a turning point where I realized I was capable of taking pretty nice photos. This isn’t necessarily even my favorite, but it opened a door to a desire of pursuing black-and-white photography.
    http://colourmehappy.typepad.com/colour-me-happy/2011/08/alcatraz.html
    *RAMBLES* This is about the silly, magical moments that make my life meaningful & happy. The comments from readers’ about their magical moments make my day.

    **Lindsay, this looks like a lot of work. Let me know today if you need help compiling the links & descriptions. xo
