Hi friends! Happy Wednesday to you 😀 How are y’all doing? I started coming down with a cold earlier this week so I am currently loading up on tea, water and lots of vitamin C! I decided to take the week off of running in order to get better- it is flippin’ cold out and I don’t think that helps the cold much. Originally I was going to take a break from hot yoga too but what can I say- I’m addicted to it and I’m feeling better 😉
Monday evening was blend-tastic 😀 I got together with some of my favorite local blends to enjoy some of the best pizza I’ve ever had at DeFazio’s in Troy. If you are local, I highly recommend checking it out! The staff was super friendly and the pizza was amazing!

I had a lot of fun girls! I’m looking forward to another blend pizza date in the future 😀
Ah, onto my goals for December. It’s a little late but I have been following them since the start of the month.
Spend quality time with friends. ‘Tis the season and what better way to spend it than catching up with friends? I am heading to Long Island this weekend to spend time with Nicole, one of my oldest and closest friends (and unofficial race photog, woohoo!). Heather is hosting a fun cookie swap and one of my other besties, Kristin, will be in town for two weeks for Christmas break. Yes! It is going to be a fun month.
Change my last name on my social security card and passport. So simple yet I keep forgetting to do it. Get ‘er done!
Frame photos for office. I’ve had a few photos waiting to be put in a frame to be hung on the walls of my office. For about a year. No more slacking!
Organize my closet. Ugh. Melissa, you should come help. 😀
No meat- track food intake daily to record how meatless diet impacts how I feel. Why I stopped eating meat this month is a story for another post. In the meantime, I’ve made a committment to not eat meat and to track everything I eat and drink and record how I feel- tired, well-rested, etc. So far it is going pretty well!
2. Maintain base mileage of 40 miles/month. I’m not sure how this will pan out, seeing as how I am taking this week off. It’s okay though 😀
3. Attend three to four hot yoga classes per week, except when traveling. I love how hot yoga makes me feel. I am addicted for sure!
4. Partake in Kacy’s 20 salads in December challenge. Basically, I have to eat twenty salads this month. I can totally do it and it is a fun way to incorporate more greens into my life. So far I am on salad four, I think.
My lunch today was a huge salad beast- spring mix, fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and cashews. The star of the show in this salad was Annie’s Papaya Poppy Seed dressing! So. Effing. Good! If you see it, you should buy it!
So, those are my goals. Have you set any goals for this month? Is it flippin’ freezing where you are too?
Have a good one, peeps!
