Instagram Updates for January 2016

Oh hey it’s already the middle of February and I haven’t done my January Instagram grid.

I contemplated stopping the grid, but decided that my Instagram pics are the most interesting ones I take, at least I think so, and I still want to share them.

Instagramming January 2016

January was filled with failed attempts at getting healthy, lots of snow and drinking and our birthday celebration!

Let’s hope the snow for this year is over. I need warm weather stat!


What Year Is It!?!

I am back! ANDDD it’s 2016! When did that happen!?!

New Year

So the end of 2015 got real crazy…as in I was always busy crazy. Not the best excuse, but it’s all I’ve got.

Here are some things to catch you up on my life:

1. Christmas felt like Spring..or Fall

Warm Christmas

We sat outside most of the day, and usually in a t-shirt. What kind of craziness is Mother Nature throwing at us?

Update: It is now cold…very very cold.


Thanks Mother Nature

2. I had a very geeky Christmas


There were multiple dinosaurs and a lot of Doctor Who things under the tree for me. I’m no complaining :)

3. Cheryl and I are still twins


We don’t even live in the same state anymore, but she came to visit and we were wearing the exact same outfit. #twinning

4. The 70s were weird


We had a quieter New Year’s at our friend Joe’s house. He found this old game and it was…interesting.

5. Binge watching shows is tiring


On New Year’s Day we decided to stay in at Kier’s at binge watch Making a Murderer. If you haven’t seen it yet, you must! It’s a great show. I really would love to know if everything was true or if there was a lot of stuff left out for “dramatic effect” as people are putting it.

6. I ate wayyy too much over Christmas


The sad part is that it started before Christmas and just got progressively worse. No worries, I have a game plan.

7. For the next month I am doing the SELF X Tone It Up Challenge

Self X Tone It Up Challenge

The food is good, but it’s a lot of cooking and NO side-snacking. The workouts are HARD. Like I want to lay on the floor and not get up hard. It was not easy to walk today.

I am determined to stick with it for the whole month of January. I also have to start training for the DC Half in April! Time to get back into it.
