Mid-January Catch Up

Hi all!  It’s the middle of January… I know, I can’t believe it either… so I thought I’d check in on myself and see how I’m doing with my January goals.

I signed up for a 5k!  On April 28 I will be running in the Bridge Valley Trailblazer Race for Autism 5k. Cousins Emily and Lauren are joining me and we’re looking for more to join in the fun! I am super excited, and scared, about this!  To celebrate my first 5k I have decided to raise money for Libertae, a residential facility in Bensalem, PA for women battling substance abuse.  They and their children live on campus and receive treatment to make the transition easier.  They learn how to be a better mother, get a job, and live substance-free.  I started volunteering there before moving and thought this would be a nice way of continuing to give.  My goal is $1000, please help!  You can read more about my story and donate by clicking here. (Thank you to Eileen for making the first donation!)

I have completed 1 week of the Couch to 5k program.  My goal is to finish the first 2 weeks in January.  Even though I still have time I am disappointed at myself for not completing this already.  I really need to get my ass in gear now that I am officially registered!

Totally had a healthy dinner party!  Party of 2!

All the ingredients in the rice cooker!

Megan came over and I cooked her a vegan meal.  She asked if I could handle vegan when I invited her over and I thought, girl I can handle anything!  We had delicious rice and beansin the rice cooker my brother got me for Christmas (hands down one of THE best gifts ever), homemade salsa which turned out pretty good despite it not being tomato season, and Megan brought yummy guac and tortillas.

Finished product!

It was so nice to sit back with a bottle of wine and catch up.  Definitely have to do this again!

Well, I didn’t start my yoga practice again.  I still have time, but I should have done this already.  And I haven’t started the Cleanse yet, but that’s okay because I’m not starting it until the end of the month.

How are you doing on your goals?  Any exciting events coming up?
