Motivation Monday #5

Welcome to February Friends!

MM5.jpgCan you believe the first month of 2016 has already come and gone?!?!? I think I must have blinked and missed it because I sure can’t! January was full of so many exciting visits, adventures, and exciting career opportunities I can’t imagine how February is even going to compare.IMG_0542.JPGOne thing is staying the same though, and that’s our commitment to healthier choices. We made it through one month of more conscious living: eating well, exercising, making healthier decisions, etc… and even though there was indulging, like these amazing desserts from dinner at Delfina when my parent’s visited, we’re both feeling lighter, leener (see what I did there 😉 ), and full or energy!
