Happy New Year!!!!

I am sitting here, eating lunch and realized how much I miss you guys AND how much I miss posting pictures of my eats!!!!

Even though my lunch is not glamorous I still had the urge to snap a picture of it, and it might have something to do with the fact that I have a NEW CAMERA! My sis gave me this camera for Christmas….she knows me so well



So here is my oh so glamorous lunch (insert sarcasm here)

Veggie Delight Sammie on 9 Grain Honey Oat Bread with Swiss Cheese…


And Baked Lays…


I also got this for Christmas (from the boy!)


I put it to good use ayer! Even though it was super foggy, it was still pretty warm for January so I headed to the park for a run…granted it WAS a little scary!


I ran for 3.1 miles and I absolutely love my new watch! I have been using my Nike + for the longest time and really wanted to get a Garmin but couldn’t afford it. My fave feature of the watch is how she would beep when I would hit a mile and it showed me the pace I ran that mile in. When I got home and plugged it in, I fell even deeper in love! I would definitely recommend this watch!


I officially joined NYRR ayer!!!!! In order for me to do the 2012 Marathon, I have to run 9 qualifying races in 2011…I am so excited….2012 Marathon here I come!!!!!!!!

I refuse to make resolutions for the new year (I prefer to make goals) but I really feel like 2011 is going to be a good year for me! I have so many positive people in my life and I know that with their love and support, I can do ANYTHING!!!!

Time to go study…love you guys!
