NYE Recap & Back to Normal

NYE Recap
Last night was a great one. Not only did we ring in a new year, it was spent with my husband, my sister, and good friends. Here are just a few pictures to recap.











Workout & Back to Normal
This morning I was hoping to sleep in as we didn't get to bed until about 1 am. Usually if I a up at that time, it's getting out of bed to go pee LOL. But, sleeping in just didn't happen for me. I started waking up a bit after 5 and finally gave up and got up just after 8.

While it was another beautiful, sunny day, running was not the workout plan. Instead, we hit the gym for our first workout of the year. I did about 15 minutes on the elliptical to warm up before doing trisets of 3x8 (unless noted) for shoulders, biceps, hamstrings and then some abs at the end.

TS#1
Arnold press
Barbell curls
Bulgarian deadlifts

TS#2
Front raise
Hammer curls
Step ups (with dumbbells)

TS#3
Lateral raise
Incline curls
Hamstring rollins on ball - 10 reps

After the workout, we met up with our friends for lunch then back home to take down all the Christmas decor. For me it's bittersweet in a way. It means the holidays are over, but then it's also nice to get things back to normal around the house. Other than the fact that we can't put the boxes back in the attic until the water heater is fixed...but that's beside the point.

I imagine the rest of the day will be a lazy one as I'm already in PJs. I am planning making a simple dinner that will include the necessary black-eyed peas and cabbage. It might just be a tradition for prosperity, but I can use all the luck I can get, so why not give it a shot right?

I hope everyone has had a great start to the New Year.
