January. Ahhhhh the month to clean it up, cut it out, and start fresh!

I hate the word resolutions but I do believe in setting goals. If you’re like me, you may have slacked big time during the holidays in the health and wellness department. If so, give yourself a break, dust your shoulders off, and look at this month as a true opportunity to return to the super strong, sexy, lovable YOU!

If you follow me on snapchat and insta, you know that 2017 is the RETURN of the RUN for me. I had a few spinning commitments this first week, so my running was a wee slow-go, but I am gradually getting back to my favorite solitary exercise. Me against who? Myself. There’s something about running alone outdoors on the pavement that forces me to be accountable to my time, distance, and goals of the day. Do you feel that way when you run?


If you want to join me in January, here are my FITNESS GOALS:


2 to 3 times a week, between 2 to 4 miles each time. I log my miles on Map My Run app.


At least once a week.


Tracy Anderson Method upper body exercises to tone up these damn bat wings driving me absolutely insane!

Even after just this first week of getting back into the swing of things, I feel SO much better. More energy, less crashes. Simply MOVING makes such a difference in our overall wellness.


From a diet standpoint, I’ve cut waaaaay back on alcohol. (My dry January goal went out the window after a week, but I’m adhering to no drinking during the week at least.) I’m also experimenting with a myriad of supplements. I’ve incorporated spirulina, fish oils, turmeric, cayenne pepper, and probiotics into my daily vitamin regime. Most are for immunity boosts, heart health, digestive health and basically aiding overall function. I’ll let you know if I feel a difference after I’ve been on the plan for a while.

Lastly, don’t forget your mental health. I just picked up a book called The Slight Edge that I had heard about all over social media. Here’s a nugget to help inspire you this month:

The truth is, what you do matters. What you do today matters. What you do every day matters. Successful people just do the things that seem to make no difference in the act of doing them and they do them over and over and over until the compound effect kicks in.
— Jeff Olson, The Slight Edge: Secret to a Successful Life

Alright. Let’s get on with it. HUT HUT!
