Sunday Social

Happy 1st Sunday of 2013! Linking up with Ashley and Neely for the 1st Sunday Social of the year :)

1. Do you plan to change your eating habits for the new year?

~ I'm not usually one to make resolutions, and it's not a resolution per se but I really would like to start eating healthier and cleaner as I mentioned in last week's post.

2. Any workout tips to get us back into shape after the Holidays?

~ This was the first holiday season I felt like I was particularly bad in the over-indulging department. I feel like the whole month of December was dedicated to various parties and get-togethers. So, needless to say I was over-eating and drinking a lot of high-calorie holiday drinks for several weeks. Thankfully, I kept up with my workout routine for the most part so I didn't gain too much, but I did gain about 3-4 pounds that I'm working on shedding.

So far, this week I only ate salad or soup for lunch instead of my usual leftovers or lean cuisines packed full of sodium. I've also gotten back into my workout routine full swing which includes 3-4 workouts at the gym during the week which is 30 minutes of cardio plus some weights. I also still do Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred at home on the weekends and one evening during the week after work. That workout is NO JOKE! After the first time, you'll be sore in places you didn't know muscles existed but if you keep at it you'll love that workout and the results it brings, I promise!

3. What is your favorite thing you did over the holidays?

~ All the time spent with friends at various parties and get-togethers. 

4. What is something you hope that you accomplish in 2013 that you did not do in 2012?

~ Tackle some more debt, we're making great headway so I'd like to hopefully eliminate it this year. 

5. Name 3 things you are excited about this year and why

~ Celebrating H's 30th birthday on a cruise and a big celebration when we get back :)

~ My cousin's wedding

~ Hopefully starting our family
