Head Start

Now that Christmas has come and gone it’s time to set sights on 2016, and while 2015 was full of more ups than downs; I’m ready to see what the new year has in store. 

My sole focus for last year was to turn this blog into a business, and while I was successful on that front some other aspects of my life fell to the wayside. Namely, my level of fitness. 

Runs for me used to consist of 3-5 mile runs at least 5 days a week, and now they consist of runs to the coffee pot or the coffee shop on those days that I was too lazy to go to the store. 

I’ve managed to pack on close to 20 pounds, and while I like my jeans tight – they’ve gotten to be a little tighter than I like them. 

One of the downsides to packing on quite a bit of weight whenever you take photos of yourself for a living? Looking at old photos and seeing pants that you can no longer fit into.

Needless to say, one of my focuses for 2016 is to get back into fighting (running) shape, and to get a head start on 2016 resolutions I’m cutting out carbs (I’m dying a little bit over here) completely for January and hopefully adapting to a more paleo-centric diet for the rest of the year once I’ve managed to shed a few pounds. 

While I’m definitely going to miss carbs there is an upside to this transition: I’ve got a helluva lot of exploring to do in the kitchen, and y’all will get to tag along with me. IF you’ve got any tips on going paleo or cutting out carbs I’m ALL ears.

  • I gotta get my ass back in the gym too, wish I was into running! I attempted paleo awhile ago while crossfitting. If not done correctly, you’ll for sure GAIN weight. Which is what happened to me. So when you hear “bacon and avocado are paleo” still eat it in moderation!

    • I wish I was STILL into running, haha. It’s gonna be difficult to get back into. Yeah, that’s my biggest downfall with food. I don’t understand moderation. Cutting out processed carbs for the past few days and watching how much I shovel down though, and I can already tell a difference in my pants. Praise be to the male metabolism.

    Its funny how we’re rocking long sleeves, and in just a few days we’ll be watching the ball drop? I’m still a huge fan of the blonde hair!

  • My husband and I had to sit down and have a serious convo about our health this week too. We are going to try to drink less during the week (wine is my reward for putting up with 120 13 year old each day!) & will be trying to incorporate more plant based meals into our lives. We just watched a few documentaries about the state of our agri system in America (watch Cowspiracy – the 2nd half is really good), and want to be better partners to our plant, while keeping the extra lbs off too! Here’s to a kickass 2016!!!

  • Why is eating right so difficult? You seem like the type of person who can accomplish anything you set your mind to, so I know you’ll knock these fitness goals out of the park! I’m not trying to lose weight per say next year, but I eat so badly and my energy levels are so low that I’m trying to modify my diet too!
