New Years Resolutions- Update #2 and WIAW #12

I'm jamming two posts into one here, brace yourself!

I'll start off with my What I ate Wednesday first:

Breakfast- Smoothie!!
1/2 c milk, 2 carrots, kale, banana, 1/8 C oatmeal, cinnamon, ice

Snack #1- Cottage Cheese and Pineapple

Lunch- Leftover Asian Lettuce Wraps (on a salad)

Snack #2- Iced Coffee and roasted chickpeas (my new favorite snack!!)

Dinner- Mushroom and Kale Lasagna Rolls and Green Salad (lasagna roll recipe at

Evening Snack- Popcorn (scarfed it too quickly to remember to take a picture!!)

Pretty decent day of eats if I do say so myself!

Now, onto my New Years Resolutions update....

1. Run 13 races in 2013

Still no races, but I am registered for my first one this year on March 16 in Calgary! I'm really looking forward to it, and depending on the weather I feel I my have a PR coming on :) Check out my 2013 races tab to see the ones I am planning on participating in this year!

2. Try out crossfit

I have a date with a friend to try crossfit on Thursday night!! I'm really nervous, but also really excited! I'll let you all know how it goes!

3. Be able to do 50 real pushups in a row

Last month I was up to 6, this month up to 9. Obviously I need to focus on this a little more, my goal is to be up to 15 by the end of March- maybe crossfit will help with this??

4. Try 1 new dinner recipe per month

We tried quite a few new recipes in February, here's a quick list of the ones that I remember:

Curried Quinoa Salad- My recipe 
Hot Fudge Brownie Larabars-Chocolate Covered Katie
Asian Lettuce Wraps-Our Best Bites
Zucchini Bread-100 days of real food
Cilantro Lime Tilapia Tacos- Skinnytaste
Mushroom Kale Lasagna Rolls-Skinny taste

5. Read 52 books this year

I had a busy month, and I only ended up getting 3 books read this month, for a total of 12 so far this year! Check out this month's reads here.

How are your goals for the year/month progressing?
