Happy New Year! I’m Back!

Hey there blog world. It’s been a while. The last time I posted was a little over a month ago, and I think that’s the longest amount of time that I’ve taken away from this little space. But it was good for me. I wasn’t posting intentionally like I had hoped and needed the time away to focus on myself, my relationship with Danny and also some friendships. 2016 was full of ups and downs and while there were so many good things about it, I just felt like it was just a little hard. But without going into too many details, I’m ready to jump into the new year and focus on ALL the good.

So bring it 2017!

I feel like every year, we all make the same “resolution” to hit the gym harder, eat a little lighter, blah blah blah. I saw this quote over the weekend and it really spoke to me:

“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year”

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

I don’t want to sit here and make all these promises to myself, I just want to be happy. I’ve been doing Beachboy again, and that has me back in the swing of things. I started realizing that I was just walking in circles at the gym and found that I get way more out of the BB programs. If I can do the short 30 minute workouts and see results from it, then that makes me feel good. I don’t have to be one of those “girls that lift”. I can get strong and healthy just the same. It’s whatever works for YOU.

I really enjoy blogging and following along with others in this community. We all live such different lives but there is something cool about reading through others experiences. I do want to be more committed to this space, so lets see how that goes 🙂

So whats ahead for 2017? Who knows! I’d love to travel a little, make more memories. I’ll be 26 this year, and feel like there is just so much world that I want to see, may as well make this my year to travel a little more. We typically go to Nashville in April, but I’d love to try somewhere new. I’m open to suggestions, throw them my way.

I hope you had such a wonderful year, and I can’t wait to follow along in 2017, hope you’ll follow my journey too!

xo, Jess

One thought on “Happy New Year! I’m Back!

  1. Love the quote you shared above! I always feel that way too about resolutions – I have all the usual ones… work out more, eat healthier, etc but I love the idea of treating every day as if it’s the best day ever! One of my resolutions, is to just be happier with everything and “better” at everything! 🙂
