The first recap of the year! Today is also stick to your New Year’s resolution. So let’s do a check in for that. I have my goals that I am working on.
I am in the middle of planning a get away and it looks to be more of a solo trip. As much as I travel with and for friends I think embarking on a solo trip will be one of the most satisfying things that anyone can do. It helps you to get back to you. I think also you can do your own activities so that you don’t have to follow the crowd or hope others are on the same page as you. It’s adventurous as well as scary. All of these things I look forward to take on for this year. So if you’re thinking about it, make it happen. I wont say where I am going or when just know it will be definitey blogged and somewhere warm!
As far as weight management, I have bought new equipment that can be easily be used at home to complete my workouts. I am talking about various bands that can be used alone or with a door to help take the workouts to the next level. I go to the gym when I am at work but the way the weather has been getting in the way, I have made sure that I leave no excuses to keeping fit. Also I slacked off with meal prepping for myself. I still cook for my family there is NO way around it. However my personal meal prepping I had to jump into. This meant that I had to purchase various containers to replace the old ones and just dive in. So far so good. I have to go back to the market for some more fresh veggies and fruit but at least I am pushing to do it. Shout out to @cocoamommy Healthy Tips as she has been the catalyst that I have used to step up my home gym days! Check her article and her out as well!
Do I have other plans? Of course I have completed my vision board and daily I look at it. I took a picture of it and have it as my screen and I look to see what can I do to accomplish the goal daily. This I know no matter how long it looks as if it will take, I know it will get done because I am making the goals my focus.
So if you’re already over it, find ways to renew your mindset. It’s just the second week in January and if you are set to go to the distance, you are going to have to figure some things out.
So as a recap on life, I am super happy that the holiday came and they are gone. I think this past Christmas was an overload. I loved it but it was draining. This year I am saying no. I am not attending as many events personally unless I truly want to. I tried to push myself to be sure that I wouldn’t allow my anxiety to get the best of me, but this year I feel way better and will be fine.
I have been sick this week. Luckily it wasn’t the flu but Lawd it was enough. I had to be off for 2 days getting my life together. I don’t normally get sick and happily it wasn’t the flu like last year. Last year I was down for a week and miserable. I pray that the increase of flu doesn’t hit anyone’s home and if it does it doesn’t cause more harm than necessary. The flu epidemic has been on the rise causing more death than it normally has. Be vigilant, practice good hand washing, and take your health seriously.
I look forward to booking some more runs, marathons etc this year. I am full research mode to find at least 4 this year.
This weekend is going to be jammed pack with events. I will blog as many as I can. Other than that I will be working out and doing my Sunday run with my friends and of course finding a MLK event to go to. The kids and I are off so between that, movies, dental appointments, and playdates-we will be chilling this weekend. I pray you all have the best weekend and find one self-love activity for yourself!
Happy Birthday to my mom! She is celebrating her day and I hope her day is amazing!
