Hello 2015.

I don’t know about you, but I am on social, food eating burn out mode.

This Detox Chicken Bok Choy Soup is a great way to kick the new year off.January is always a reason to jump-start your eating habits.  Choosing lighter fares and attempting to make better choices.

At least that is how I want to begin my 2015.  I am not going to sit here and write about all the things I am going to do.  Instead I am going to take action.

It began with this soup.  After which I managed a 1 mile walk around the neighborhood.

This Detox Chicken Bok Choy Soup is a great way to kick the new year off.Let’s all get fit, fitter or work toward that together.

I have been trying to find a yoga class that fits my work schedule.  Can you believe all the ones I looked into are either at 6:00 a.m. or 7:00 p.m.  So disappointing.  I know I can try to buy a DVD and do it at home, but I need people to motivate me.  If you want to be my people, let me know.

In the meantime, our Sunday Supper movement is providing you with Lighter Fare to start out the new year on the right foot.  Our Host this week is, T.R. from Gluten Free Crumbley.

So many amazing recipes to help you purge those bad eating habits from 2014.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great 2015.

  7. Good for you to jump start the year with taking action! I definitely know what you mean about needing motivation/support from others to keep you accountable when it comes to working out. It can sometimes be so so hard to do that yourself at home! Hopefully you’ll find a class/something you like to do that will fit your schedule!

  20. I am with ya needing some support to keep on track with working out. I did well last Spring, and lost 12 pounds! Then little by little the treadmill got dusty and the pounds came back *sigh* I gained 10 back. I have an awesome Pilates for beginners DVD, but I have wood floors so I need a mat to work out on. Now your soup? This is something I can get behind and promise to finish!!
