New Year, Same Me

I’m going to admit it, I am a big old grump about this New Year. I have never really been into making resolutions, but I am REALLY not into it this year. They never work for me. I don’t like giving things up and I don’t like making a goal to change something because I always end up failing.

Do I want to be healthier? Of course! Would I like to drop a few pounds? Who doesn’t! Would I like to spend more time on things that are important instead of worry about little things? Sign me up!

But making a whole list of things to give up or completely change my life? No thank you. So instead of resolutions, I am making some SUGGESTIONS for myself in this new year.

-hit the gym regularly. We were doing really well at the end of last year, so staying on that plan will be easy.

-eat a few less calories in a day. We love to cook, and we cook a ton. So I am suggesting maybe adding a few more vegetables to what we already cook.

-less guilt about things. If I want to eat a chicken fried steak, I will. No guilt. If I want to have a glass on wine on a Monday after work, no guilt. My suggestion to myself to go to the gym more will help with the guilt!

-pay off more debt. That is our biggest goal this year. We did so good last year, I think we can really make a difference this year.

So there you go, my suggestions for 2017. I pray that this year is the year of more growth, more love, and more adventure. (also more blogging…my last suggestion)

Cheers, 2017!!!

Workout Wednesday

Well guys, I am on week four of my new fitness life, and I am pleased to announce that it’s going really well!! My goal was to make it to the gym, or do some kind of work out 3 times per week. I figured that if I didn’t try to over commit myself, I would be more likely to stick to it. And guess what, IT WORKED. The first two weeks I hit my goal, and last week I actually made it one extra time.

I am feeling great, and starting to see the slightest bit of difference in my body. Others may not be able to see any difference, but I know it’s there. It makes me want to keep going!

Let me tell you this though, I am really freaking sore. I am doing a lot of weight training, so I’m pretty much sore all over. My husband and I did a core routine on Saturday that I am still feeling 4 days later. I was really, really out of shape. I tried to do burpees on Monday, and literally could only do 3 of them. Baby steps, I’ll get there.

I know I have a ways to go, and I am taking it one day at a time. This is going to sound so strange, and super foreign coming out of my mouth, but I am actually enjoying going to the gym. I found a lot of work out programs online that have helped me know what I am doing at the gym. I follow a few girls on instagram that post workout ideas everyday that are helpful!

So, that’s just a little workout update for today. I am really hoping to stay with it. We are going on a vacation for 10 days at the beginning of July, and I have already found some great at home workouts to keep me going even while we are out of town.

The next step, getting this diet of mine under control. I just really love to eat bad things guys.

Wish me luck!!!
