New Year-New Groove

The start of 2017.. 

Can you even believe it? I know I have a hard time.. Well this year brings a lot of excitement. It is the beginning of my first full year of marriage, so many friends around me are starting their own little families or getting married, my husband and I want to get a new puppy and have a baby! I just can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us. 

To kick off the new year I will be joining a friend of mine in a beach body team. She is the coach and has been telling me for months I would benefit. I knew she was right, but I’ve honestly been a little scared. The last three years I have been suffering with severe back and hip pain, in and out of physical therapy, working with nutritionists, doing blood panels, etc. Things have slowly begun to turn around for me and I feel like this year is my year! I am beginning my beach body, 21-day fix on Monday. I’m so thankful to have my husband who wants to do the program with me to get himself in shape as well. As I may or may not have mentioned, my husband works on the north slope. Every two weeks he flies up to work for 2 weeks, then flies home and is here for 2 weeks. During those 2 weeks gone, I do a pretty great job at meal prepping, eating healthy, not going out to eat etc. Unfortunately, when he comes home for 2 weeks I relapse. Like most men, his diet isn’t the greatest by his metabolism keeps his body in check. Not mine! So, I get into bad eating habits with him, we go out to eat or to the movies and then what happens when he leaves? I can’t snap out of it!! So I can’t wait for him to be dedicated to this healthy eating with me while he is home. 

He doesn’t know it yet, but I threw all of our junk food away. I think that’s going to make the biggest difference for us not to have those easy, unhealthy go-to snacks or meals. So shhh, let’s keep that to ourselves. 

As for excercise, we will both be following the 21-day fix workout routines and of course doing our own activists like snowmachining! Yes, it can be hard on my back, but I try to take it pretty easy and for the most part I do just fine. I love being out there riding. There isn’t any other sport like it. 

So how did you ring in the new year? Do you have a resolution? Or just a small change? Do you have something big in store this year? I would love if you could share with us your new year, new groove plans 😉 ​


This is as crazy as my night got for New Years. Hubby on the slope, friends visiting from Fairbanks so I just had a sparkler. But it was a fun time!
