Happy New Year!! ~2013~
I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year!! I know I sure had a blast in 2012 and cannot wait for all that 2013 has to bring :) As usual I have been juicing up to 2 times a day because I just can't get away from all of the health benefits. I have had so much more energy and that is exactly what I need for my New Year's Goal for 2013.
I really tried hard to stay away from making resolutions like "Losing weight" and really want to focus on staying active this year. Whether going to the gym, running on the beach, taking a hike, or paddle boarding, I am making a goal to do something active everyday in this new year. Now some may say that isn't realistic but I love pushing myself and proving that I "CAN" do it. I am not expecting myself to run 2 miles everday. That would be unrealistic. However I am going to be thinking about what I can do Active tomorrow before going to bed the night before. If the day gets crazy I plan to do a workout in my bedroom. You know some crunches, lifting some weights, and using my bands to strengthen and tone my legs.
So far this year my husband and I have been hitting the gym during the week while our kids are in school. We even tried Raquetball the one day. That was so much fun and something completely out of the norm for us. We can't wait for Monday so we can play again. We even took the kids on a hike at one of our local state parks. My youngest is 5 years old and kept up the whole time on the 4 mile hike.
We made smart choices and packed a healthy lunch full of fruit choices and Avocado Turkey Wraps. Things are really going smooth and I couldn't be happier about that. We have also recently watched the documentary "Hungry For Change" which is made by the same producers of "Food Matters" two very powerful documentaries about food and our health. I highly reccomend them and of course if you are just finding this blog and starting on your journey and you haven't watched "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" that is also a must watch documentary.
I am going to be posting alot of recipes this year so stay tuned :) Don't forget to "Like" Skinny Jeans Amy on Facebook too. I would love to hear about your journey too!
