Let this be your Mantra for 2019!!
Let this be your Mantra for 2019!!
Happy Sunday!! Hope you have enjoyed your weekend, I know that I have. Yesterday I slept in until 8:30am, went to (healthy) lunch and to the movies with the hubs (Mary Poppins was totally adorable!) and spent an hour and a half wandering around the grocery store with lists from 4 different people!! Today we’re finally taking down the Christmas tree and watching football. No plans are the best plans for homebodies! 🙂
I’m currently smelling turkey sweet potato chili with black beans cooking for lunches, and I just finished prepping chicken salad from a rotisserie chicken we had for dinner last night. I’m totally one of those people who spends $200 at the grocery store and then doesn’t feel like cooking. Josh is home for another two weeks, so the grocery bill is a bit higher than normal! Aaron and I are creatures of habit and have mainly the same foods for breakfast and lunch every day. We both have protein muffins for breakfast and fruit for snack. He has a lunch meat sandwich and veggie chips for lunch and I have salad or soup/chili. Here’s our dinner plans for the work week:
Monday: Chicken Enchiladas and rice
Tuesday: Crockpot roast with carrots and onions, and roasted potatoes
Wednesday: Fend for yourself night! Aaron has dinner plans with his BFF and I’ll have leftovers after the gym, since I’m going to the Rachel Hollis documentary with girlfriends! SO EXCITED!!
Thursday: Shrimp and Scallop Teriyaki with Josh’s homemade fried rice.
Friday: Out to dinner for Aaron’s dads birthday. An Italian spot. Since I don’t eat gluten or dairy, I’ll have the filet and veggies.
Tonight is family dinner at my mom’s and I haven’t planned for next weekend.
What’s on your menu??? Let me know in the comments!

As I said in yesterday’s blog post Goals or Resolutions?, I’m working towards a consistent workout routine. Here is what I did this week:
Monday: I volunteered at the hospital in the morning, so I did not go to the gym.
Tuesday: Ummm, laziest day ever. Aaron and I literally laid around reading all day.
Wednesday: Body combat! I love kickboxing and this is my favorite class!
Thursday: Body Attack! Whoa. This was my first time taking this class. Intense, but I loved it!!
Today: Walking over lunch, but otherwise a rest day. I need it after last night. LOL!
Tomorrow I’ll either do body pump or spin in the morning to start the weekend.
What did you do this week?
A new year gives us so many new chances to do well! I love that we get a FRESH start to make changes every year, although I fully believe that you do not have to wait until January 1 to start anew. I don’t want to make resolutions, but goals that I hope to achieve in the new year. Here are my goals for 2019:
I came across this post on facebook (of course), and love this idea! I’m going to incorporate these into each month:
What are your goals for 2019?? Comment and let me know!
I hope you enjoyed your evenings and celebrated the way that makes you happy! Whether that be partying or in bed before midnight. Ours was low key and spent with family.
Today is the LAST day of 2018!! It’s been a WONDERFUL year for my family, but I’m looking forward to what 2019 has to bring! Happy New Year!!
We have SO MUCH to look forward to!
Merry Christmas Eve!!! It’s one of my absolute favorite days of the year. My family will gather at my mom’s house later this afternoon and we will celebrate Christmas together. I love my family so very much. I’m hoping that you’ll be spending today with those you love as well.
I’m starting a new segment on the blog. Sometimes, you just need a little motivation to start your week off right! Plan your meals, your workouts, your self care and family time. Make it a great week…on purpose!
The hubs and I switched gyms this month. We had been attending an expensive health club, but with how busy life has been (ok, we’ve been lazy!) we hadn’t been utilizing it to the fullest. It was really expensive, $160 per month. Aaron didn’t really like the pool because it was always crowded. I loved the classes, but they were always so late that it took away our time together in the evenings. Hey, we still like being together all the time. Give us a few years. LOL!
I did some research on the YMCA, and we decided to join. I had been a member when Josh was younger, but it’s had a face lift and is so much nicer now. The best part, it’s HALF of what we were spending! Heck yeah! Plus, there are classes every day at 4:30pm! I can get my workout done and be home around the same time that Aaron is. Love that!
Aaron and I worked out for the first time last night at a gym. Usually we do our own workouts, as he likes to swim and I like to feed off others energies in classes. Or we walk outside together. We worked out on the elliptical machines last night, side by side, on the same workout setting. It was nice! Hopefully we’ll fit in time each week to work out together. The couple who gets fit together and all that.
What does your gym routine look like? Are you a daily grinder or 4-5 days a week? What’s your favorite workout? I want to know!!
So, over the past two weeks I’ve told you my absolute favorite Arbonne products, but I could have kept going! The eyeliner, eye shadows, lip balms, glosses and sticks. The protein and fiber. The one week cleanse. The essential oil blends. I love it all and USE it all. Excellent ideas for stocking stuffers from Arbonne!
Check out what we have to offer and I promise you’ll be happy with your choices.
