So if you haven’t figured it out yet, I am pretty awful at being consistent with this blog. Although in my defense, I have been trying to use my instagram a bit more often, which if you are not following you should do so (like right now since you are clearly not that busy if you are reading my blog– I promise that wasn’t supposed to come off sassy)
In other news, big news for the big ole’ 2018. While I really despise the whole idea of “New Year, New Me”, since I don’t typically thing someone should become “new” just because its a new year (as we should all cherish our lovely selves and be happy with who we are), I do think goal setting is super important and helps us stay motivated as everyday beings. So, for my “New Year, New Goals“, I have decided to try to do some more weight training! Now, this has been a goal for quite a long time– i’m talking years people. So, I had to think of a good way to really commit to going into that weight room, and doing more than just looking intimidated and going to what i know best (aka: the treadmill).
I am happy to announce I have joined Alyssa Nilsson’s New Years Challenge! It’s a 40 day guide to weights, eating, and overall new happy life. Alyssa is amazing and gives you your own personal workout schedule + calculates your macros (gives breakdown of understanding and tracking)– all of this is based on the goals you tell her you have! It’s honestly amazing and I would have never been committing to this new weight regime without the plan she gave me. It really keeps you accountable, and she is always available for questions via email! She is wonderful and so helpful (while also being so incredibly gorgeous– shout out to Alyssa). I also want to include that maintaining my running is very important to me, and I expressed that to her right at the start. She ensured me that it was okay to continue my normal mileage (about 43-50 miles/week), and I can just replace it with the cardio workouts that she provides in the plan.
If you are interested in checking her out her IG is “alyssanilssonfitness” and her website to actually purchase the plan is alyssanilssonfitness.com
I want to add that this is NOT in anyway an ad, simply a way of saying thank you so Alyssa for everything so far!
Aside from weight training (and being sore all the time from it– in a good way I promise), all is going lovely and great! Charlie said his New years resolution is to get more pancakes, so we are definitely working on that goal. After all, he is too stinkin’ cute to deny those wishes. I would love to hear all of your goals and resolution, so message me them! I look forward to being back and working on my second goal: being better at this blog!
For real though, add me on IG! And keep on running, running, running, running– what do we do, we run, run (I really hope you all understood that reference, or else I’ll feel a little pink)– and we all know how much I hate the color hot pink!
Anyway, rant is over.
Have a fantastic week!
