Hi! Hello! Happy 2018! Anyone else feeling a little bit like they are still exiting the holiday hangover? We might not have had a crazy Christmas, but we sent 2017 out with a bang by meeting up with some friends of ours in Scottsdale to ring in the new year. There was lots of fun, food, cocktails, an escape room, the spa, a golf course and loads and loads of laughs. It’s safe to say we made the most of the last few days of 2017 and we sure hope that 2018 brings lots more visits with the people we love so much. Before I dive into a full trip recap, I wanted to share a little bit about our life currently and what we have on tap for the rest of the month 🙂
Starting – Dane and I fell off the track majorly in the month of December in terms of our clean eating habits. There were date nights out, holiday treats, drinks with friends, Christmas cookies, and the list goes on… We enjoyed every single second of our holiday, but it’s time to stop feeling like shit and start eating right again. I’m keeping myself accountable with a few close friends who are doing a round of Whole30 and also checking in each day on Instagram. My biggest issue recently has been meal planning, which I used to be so good at, so I’m really determined to be successful in getting this wagon back on track! Although I must admit this frozen pomegranate margarita was SO tasty!
Hoping – That my 2018 horoscope is right. I love reading my horoscope – anyone else feel the same way? I don’t think it’s the end-all-be-all, but I definitely do think there’s some truth in the stars. Call me crazy, but when I re-read my 2017 horoscope on December 30th, it kind of sucked the air out of me! I’m also hoping that the weather here in Hawaii stays status quo and no more torrential downpours like we had the week of Christmas. Yuck!
Scheduling – Blog posts and workouts. After the marathon, I got lax about my workout schedule and I really wish I wouldn’t have, but one of the things I’m working on for 2018 is giving myself grace. Not working out every single day can be OKAY. And also – my body needs rest! Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me and makes me feel like I need a rigorous work out, where as going for a walk or hike would fit the bill, too. I’m also working on a bunch of new content here that I can’t wait to share 🙂
Reading – Liane Moriarty’s “Truly Madly Deeply”….and I have been FOREVER! I’ll be honest, it’s driving my bonkers. I typically love her books and I really can’t get into this one. I can’t quite figure out why, but something about it really just doesn’t pique my interests like her others have. Any good recommendations for me? At this point, I’m ready to read the spoilers and dive into something else!
Playing – Spotify on repeat. Dane and I both pay for Spotify and we were just talking about how we feel like we aren’t necessarily getting our money’s worth, because we use it for runs or workouts, but don’t update it or get new songs or make new playlists nearly as often as we should. That changed 1/1! I created some new playlists, added new songs and have been enjoying the shuffle life on Spotify. Right now “Come And Get Your Love” by Redbone is playing on my “Oldies” playlist 🙂
What have you been up to?
