Off to a great start!

I haven't made a habit of posting so obviously I'm a bit behind. We have had a very busy and COLD start to the new year at our house, starting with the One One Run on January 1st at 1pm in Parchment.  Maggie went with me - probably not a great idea as the weather decided to get in on the whole numbers act and it was 11 degrees outside.  I had to be at the event for work, so spending 4 hours outside was not fun.  The trail wasn't well cleared either and Maggie's snow pants kept falling down, so we actually walked the 2.2 mile course rather than running.  We made it though!

It has just gotten colder since that day, so while I did make it to the first week of my Beyond Training Camp (sponsored by the Kalamazoo Area Runners), those are the only two days that I have run outside.  Thank goodness for the treadmill!

So for the first week of January I have managed to log 19.45 miles towards my goal of 1,000 miles for the Voyage to Venus - only 980.55 more to go.  Whoo hoo!

As far as my nutrition goals go, I am one week into the Cathy Zielske Jumpstart through Big Picture Classes and have actually managed to keep up with the daily assignments.  I'll be putting my actual album together this weekend when I'm off at a girls weekend/scrapbooking event, so maybe I'll post some photos at that time.  I lost 2.2 pounds in the first week of the year, so that was kind of exciting.

I'm starting day 4 of the 21 Day January Reset Challenge led by Laura of  So far so good on that front too - but I am glad the first 3 days are over and I can add some chicken/turkey back into my meals.  I have fallen in love with this Quinoa Veggie Salad as well - it is so good!

Now off to enjoy the rest of my day!
