So let’s get started so you can make tons of moola starting tomorrow!

What do you eat on New Years? 

Getting Back Into Fitness

Perhaps you’ve taken some time off from the gym? Just don’t expect to walk in and feel right at home. Listen to your body and slowly acclumate back into the workout scene.

Too much too soon can lead to burn out and injuries.

Don’t be afraid to ask for a tour to get aquainted with the gym and what it has to offer. And always, set up a workout plan! Which days, how long and what workouts to you plan to do!?

And like I mentioned, if you’re getting back into exercise and need some help getting started then check out Torched In 20. Burn fat, lose inches and safely go from beginner to intermediate fitness lover!

AND FINALLY…

HAVE A SAFE AND MEMORABLE NIGHT! 

What will you be doing to celebrate?

We have never done anything for New Years. Dan and I both worry about cops and crazy drivers on the road. So we choose to pop open champagne and have a great dinner at home every year. We normally bring out the board games, talk about our goals for the upcoming year and watch the ball drop.

Then I get to bed!

    My husband and I are also staying in this year. I’ll make a nice dinner and we’ll have champagne and games. Pretty much the same as you! We are continuing our low key weekend after a busy holiday season. It feels wonderful to take a break and stay home :)

      Sounds like a great night to me! Have fun and enjoy the last stretch of the holidays! Sad to see it go so quickly.

    Fun vlog! My family always eats pork tenderloin, another new year’s day good luck food. You’re also not supposed to eat poultry on new year’s day, or any animal that scratches backward – it’s bad luck since they encourage backward motion.

      That is so interesting! I haven’t heard that before, but it clearly makes sense. My family will have pork as well. Happy New Years!!
