We continue to live a healthy lifestyle. We concentrate on low calorie and high protein. We also eat gluten free when possible. Obviously we love to cook and bake at home which also makes staying healthy much easier!
Well we are a week into 2022. We’ve had a little bit of snow and several days of below freezing temps. Its been an exhausting week for John, who delivers in these frigid temps. The week always seems longer for me, since i get less outdoor time with the kiddos and i miss my walks.
It’s competition month which means a lot of extra activity for me. I’m actually sore after coaching from demonstrating the same floor work over and over again. I also stand in for the missing girls who are out with covid!
My goal this year was to incorporate weights into my workouts. Some of the benefits are: Increased muscle mass, increased metabolism, slowing of bone density loss, better quality of sleep, improved body image, more energy, improved overall health, reduce risk of cancer, and a leaner/tone body! Thank goodness my husband enjoys weight training because i have no idea what to do!
John got me some new workout clothes for Christmas. They are from Victoria Secrets and so cute but honestly their sports line is my favorite for quality workout clothes!
Every week i do a transition photo. The side by side is more motivating to me than the numbers on the scale. I’m down 17 inches between my waist and hips and 44.5lbs. Most importantly i feel really good and that’s all i wanted!
Tada it’s a new year! We actually stayed up until midnight so we slept in a little longer this morning!
We started our day off with some homemade breakfast sandwiches and a beautiful walk through the park. The temp was about 40°, foggy and a slight mist in the air. We saw deer, squirrels, a young family and Santa! Yes Santa was indeed walking off all the sugar he ate over the last month!
Quick lunch break. I ate a light low calorie meal so i could eat a heavier dinner!
While johns cooking dinner, I’m cleaning and taking down the trees! The house smells amazing! He made homemade pulled pork sandwiches, homemade sauerkraut balls (baked not fried so they were healthier) and I we air fried some French fries. D E L I C I O U S
This year i am going to focus my blog on our healthy lifestyle and all the adventures that come with it. Truly looking forward to another wonderful year!
