Happy New Year! Yesterday was the weirdest New Year’s Day ever. I’ve always loved New Year’s Day and the feeling of a clean slate, probably similar to most of you. But yesterday — for better or worst — just felt like another day. And an off day at that. I didn’t sleep well on New Year’s Eve, despite being in bed by 11 PM. I tossed and turned until 2 AM when I finally feel asleep (according to my Sleep Cycle app) and then I was wide awake at 6:30 AM. Ugh. I’m typically a pretty good sleeper when I’m at home, so when I don’t sleep it really throws me off.
So there I was, feeling icky and weird all day, eating lots of carbs and drinking way too much coffee, while many others are kicking off their healthy resolutions. On the one hand, I hate that I didn’t have that “clean slate” feeling, but on the other, I also love that I don’t feel the need to completely reboot my habits since it’s really just another day. I’m constantly tweaking my routine to make it healthier and easier and I’ve been in a pretty good groove for a while. It’s really all about the cumulative effect and not overthrowing and overhauling everything at once, which is a recipe for failure.
I’ve always loved recap posts but rather than highlighting the most popular blog posts of the year, I want to share the my best things of 2016 across a wide range of topics. I’m still thinking through some goals and intentions for 2017 (since I still have 364 days to figure that out) and I’ll be sure to share! Happy 2017! And farewell 2016 – you were pretty great.
And okay I was curious and looked up my most popular blog post: My body before and after a year of CrossFit. 🙂
Hope your new year is off to a great start!
P.S. The Nordstrom Half Year Sale ends today, so don’t miss it. I shared my picks and what I own that’s on sale in this blog post.
