Time to Conquer


I am finally home and back to reality!  WHEW!!!

While the holidays were so fun and I loved every second and love my family so much, it's hard being out of your routine and out of your element- especially for 10 days.  I'm so glad it's over.  I weighed myself this morning on my home scale...and I've only gained 2 pounds the whole week and a half I was gone.  YESSSSS!!  Considering I didn't get to work out one time, and I ate pretty horribly, I'm so happy about that.

I am so excited for the New Year and ready to conquer!  I purchased a few magazines yesterday while at the airport (delays left and right and nothing to do for hours) and reading SHAPE magazine really got me inspired.  I think I'm going to make yoga a regular part of my exercise routine this year.  While I don't love yoga (at all), I know it's good for my body and it seems that if you can make yourself keep going for awhile, you can learn to fall in love with it.  I need that.  I have also been discussing a few marathons with some friends and if I do a marathon, it will be crucial that I am limber and flexible for that much distance running.

This year is going to be the best one yet, I can feel it.  I am doing adult things!  Grad school?  Check.  Marathon?  Probably...check.  Yoga?  Traveling to new cities?  Check and check!  I LOVE IT!!

Hope you guys are having a wonderful day- let's conquer!!!



  1. I love the possibilities a new year brings! Good to have you back!

  2. I also feel this is the year of great things! I also keep thinking about doing a half marathon, but I don't know that I will be ready for that this year, but I am going to work towards that goal, and next year for sure!
