Hey guys! I know I haven't been keeping up with posting every Monday and Friday like I have been trying to, but sometimes life gets in the way. I've been soooooo behind on everything from grocery shopping to laundry that sitting down to write a blog post about what we have been up to just didn't even make the to-do list. But here I am, back at it, and ready to let you all in on what we have been doing!
How many of you made New Year's resolutions that you have long since forgotten about? I am sitting here with my hand raised high. Both Zach and I made goals to be healthier. We said we would eat more veggies, less dessert, eat in more and go out less. We also said that we would use the home gym that we worked so hard to put together. I am sure most of you can guess that by the middle of January these ideas went right out the window.
Two weeks ago, we both re-committed to this new healthy lifestyle. I made a menu full of veggies and protein. I looked up workouts and announced that I would be working out 4 days a week. Zach did the grocery shopping and got tons of fresh produce from Trader Joes. It looked like we were all set up for success. What could possibly go wrong, right?
By the time Friday rolled around, I had worked out exactly 0 times. I had also cooked 0 meals from my healthy eating meal plan. To make it even better, I texted Zach on my lunch hour saying how tired I was and we quickly decided that ordering pizza and garlic knots from Zitos was the best possible decision we could make for the day. It was delicious, but clearly not in alignment with working towards being healthy. Finishing off a quart of ice cream while watching a movie, eating a giant shave ice, and mowing down a bag of gummy bears over the weekend also didn't get me any closer to being healthy. I clearly have a problem.
Since I am clearly failing at working towards a healthier me, I am hoping you all can help me out. Zach wants to get healthy with me, so let me know in the comments below what your favorite way to be healthy with your partner is. Do you have a favorite healthy recipe? I would love to try it! Do you and your spouse work out together? What do you do that you can both enjoy? I am hoping that between now and the end of May Zach and I can make some serious progress towards our goal and I would love any suggestions you have to offer!
