If you are like me you get super excited about new goals and then one thing after another seems to side track you every time! I was hell bent that this year that I would not beat myself up if and when life got in the way. That is proving harder than I thought....
January as managed to really kick my arse between the back to back snow storms. Plus thanks to a flu that took me down like it was a medieval plague I am weeks behind where I was originally hoping to be in my half marathon training.
However, since I am working on not beating myself up this year, I am going to focus on the good stuff I have been doing. Because it is OK to get off track, to be happy for the little accomplishments in my life and to be elated about the boxes of girl scout cookies at my apartment that my adorable niece sold me!
Another thing I am happy about is the good food I have been enjoying! I may not be able to run 5 miles through ice covered streets but this sailing foodie can still make a mean dinner!

What is one thing you have been getting to this winter that is keeping a smile on your face?
