Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! I'm a big fan of finding strange patterns in dates, and you can bet I am excited that today is one-one-one one. I'm a huge nerd.

My New Year's Eve was actually very uneventful, but I didn't mind. I went to dinner with my friend Gina, her boyfriend, and a bunch of their friends at Apache Trout Grill. It was fun and I had a fantastic dinner but I didn't really feel like going downtown after that. I was going to meet up with a couple other friends later in the night but while killing time at home before they were ready, I ended up getting extremely tired and dozing off. I woke up just in time for the ball drop and then I completely passed out! It's totally not like me to stay in for New Year's Eve, but I woke up this morning in my own bed feeling refreshed and ready to take on the new year :)

It was nice and sunny when I woke up so I decided that was definately a sign that I should go for a run! I busted into one of my birthday presents:

And had a yummy breakfast/pre-run snack of whole grain toast, sunflower butter, and half a banana:

Then I headed to the Civic Center and ran about 2 miles and then walked a little over a mile. It felt good to get moving!



I am a firm believer that a new year = a fresh start and I can't wait to see what 2011 has in store for me. Here are some things I am looking forward to:


I don't typically make New Year's resolutions, but here are some of my goals for 2011:
  • Reach my goal weight of 135lbs
  • Run my first 10K in May
  • Ride 500 miles on my bike
  • Get a boyfriend Meet some new people

Well, I'm off to hit the showers and then hit the mall. I'll be spending the afternoon looking for a new pair of jeans to wear with my new boots that I bought yesterday at Kohl's:

So cute :)

What are you looking forward to this year? What are your goals or resolutions?


  1. Cute boots! :)

  2. while we're at the arnold, we should totally do the pump and run. Not sure what it is EXACTLY, but I'm pretty sure it's a 5k that incorporates lifting.
