Happy New Year!

I'm back and it's 2013! I cannot believe how fast the past year went! The biggest thing that comes to my mind when I think of New Year's is new years resolutions. Do you have any resolutions for 2013? I have two big resolutions:

1.) Blog more regularly. It is important to me to blog more regularly because I started this blog for a reason and I have put a lot of time into it. I recognize to be a better blogger I'm going to have to start doing things like coming up with a blog schedule and maybe even making a calendar in advance. I love blogging and I get enjoyment out of sharing my expertise with others that are interested. I'm going to try starting off by posting at the very least every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and I will work myself up from there. I get overwhelmed easily when I have a lot on my plate and my reaction is always the same: Complete shutdown which leads to me avoiding everything I need to get done. I am holding myself accountable.

2.) Get on the weight-loss train for my wedding in September. Isn't it really cliché to say this? I need to be serious though. I want to look my absolute best for my wedding and I do have a long road to get there. I allowed myself to put on weight during the holidays, and I'm too afraid to even weight myself. More important than even losing the weight is just being healthy and having a strong body. Being skinny doesn't mean you're fit. I have 263 days until my wedding. Ready. Set. GO!

Referring to resolution #2, I was browsing through my Get Fit board on Pinterest and found a recipe for a detox bath that I pinned awhile back. What better way to start a fitness/health routine than to cleanse your body of all the toxins and bad stuff that's there and make room for more good stuff? (Particularly if some of us hit the alcohol frequently this past holiday season). Here is the recipe.

 I wish you all a happy and healthy new year. Good luck with your resolutions and if you try the bath, let me know how it goes!



  1. Wow, wedding ....ya I know the feeling. Did some crazy workout-hours before mine...loved it, but it´s not realistic in the long run...and your man loves you no matter what you look like (I hope), so don´t stress yourself out too much!!


  2. Thanks Jezz! I am a lucky girl and know he loves me no matter what I look like. I want to finally get healthy for me! :-) "If a man doesn't live you at your worst, then he sure as hell doesn't deserve you at your best." -Marilyn Monroe
