Good morning! It’s Monday and life is back to normal after all the holiday fun!
I feel like I haven’t been around in forever – we’ve been so busy with everything surrounding the holidays. On New Year’s Eve, we went with my family to a restaurant called Rock Bottom. Afterwards, we went to my brother and sister-in-law’s house to play some games and ring in the new year!
On New Year’s Day, we celebrated Christmas with my in-laws.
Danny’s poor mom just recently broke her foot.
My nephew come home from the Navy on a surprise visit a short time before Christmas so it was nice to have him home to celebrate the holidays.
My in-laws know us too well – wine, protein powder, and pre-workout.
What more could a girl ask for?!
Now that the new year has started and the holidays are over, I look forward to getting back on track with healthy eating. I overindulged quite a bit over the holidays and look forward to eating more normally. Eating better definitely makes me feels better physically and mentally as well as bringing my energy levels up.
My plan is to stick to counting my macros (carbs/fats/and proteins) on a daily basis. I have had good luck with this diet method in the past and it works well for me. I am able to get in all the healthy foods I need while still enjoying a treat here and there.
My biggest goal for the new year is to stick with healthy eating and macro counting on the weekends. This has always been an ongoing issue for me – hopefully, I’ll stay on better track this year!
Thankfully, my workouts have stayed on track. For me, working out is the easy part and while the nutrition is what I struggle with.
Since Danny had the week off, we were able to get in lots of workouts together at the gym.
I still love my Polar A300!
My plan for my workouts is to strength train 5 days a week, with three days of 20-30 minute HIIT sessions, and possibly start adding some yoga into my workout plan.
I find it helpful to use my Erin Condren planner to help plan my day and workouts.
In puppy news, Baylee is growing so fast! She’s getting big but not quite big enough to pull Jacob around in his sled like she’s trying to do!
Have a wonderful Monday!
