Lara Bingle hoping for a more upbeat 2011

Melbourne: Lara Bingle, the former fiance of Aussie cricketer Michael Clarke, is apparently hoping for a more upbeat 2011.

"It`s been a monumental year for me, and I`m really excited to begin another," the Daily Telegraph quoted her as saying of her plans and hopes for the coming year.

"If all goes to plan, it will be my best new year yet," she said.

Bingle has also set herself some goals and resolutions for the coming year.

"It`s about moving forward, not backwards. Leaving the bad - people, habits and negative energy - behind. A time to make changes, right?" she said.
