It all starts here

Hi Chicklets, hope your 2016 is off to a great start!

I'm sitting here, recipe book open, fit bit charging, meal-prepping for what feels like a mini apocalypse. I, along with everyone else in the United States who isn't already on the "Get fit" bandwagon, will be taking the leap, and promptly holding on for dear life beginning tomorrow. While I'm super excited to get back at it, I'm also experiencing that feeling of dread that everyone feels on the Sunday before they hit the re-start button. 

I've had quite the up and down last few years - throwing myself 100% into a Paleo diet leading up to my 30th, and then going on a downward spiral and yo-yo-ing ever since then. The difference as I am getting older, is I feel older. I feel fat. And I don't say that because I want you to say "oh no, sweetie, you're not fat" -- I say it because my body is telling me that it's time to do something about it. I'm tired of waking up and everything hurts. I'm tired of my stomach being topsy/turvy. I'm tired of getting winded when I'm having a conversation with someone, let alone walking up stairs - fageddabatit. 

This isn't a resolution, it's a promise to myself. I know I can be successful when I put my mind to it. I'm successful at a lot of things, and it's time to start putting my health and wellness at the forefront, so that I can enjoy the life tt and I are working so hard to provide for each other and ourselves. 

And with that, my week:

Upon rising:
25 Jumping Jacks to get my blood flowing, and a morning Yoga sequence
Cranberry ACV energy drink = 4 oz Cranberry Juice + 2 Tbl ACV + Juice of 1/2 lemon + sqidge of honey + water {combine in a mason jar, shake shake shake as you dance around your kitchen, drink up}
Coffee, duh = Unsweetened Almond Milk + Stevia

Protein Blast Smoothie = Greenberry Shakeology + Spinach +.Banana + Water {blend up with ice, internal race to finish smoothie before I get to work without getting brain freeze}


Turkey Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
Spaghetti Squash with Pumpkin Marinara Sauce 
{stay tuned for these two NEW recipes!! Coming this week on the blog!}

I am committing myself to do three of the TIU workouts this week, along with taking at least one walk around the block with Cecelia.

Before bed:
5 Minute Yoga Sequence for bedtime
Vitamins = Magnesium + Malic Acid + Probiotic + Fish Oil + Vitamin D + Biotin + MultiV
