Fitness progress in January

My healthy breakfast: Chobani coconut yogurt and Cascadian organic granola

I told myself that January would be different this year and that I would have a great month. Why is January always so boring? I have been tired on the top of that. The Holiday eating madness got to me. This last week I have done great in going back to a good eating habit and some exercising. The cold is really hard on me too. I just want to go outside and walk but I can't do it for very long.

A toddler can be challenging. They start to get in everything. I have to get in the bath with her in the morning if I want to get clean and move my makeup to the kitchen if I want to get ready. The hair is another story. I just can't stay on the couch all day because I am afraid she will get into dangerous things. I have to adapt. I have done it before. 

What I have done different this week:
1200 to 1500 Calories a day.
Piyo or 21 day fix DVDs.
8 glasses of water.

What have been your challenges this January?

Lately on Instagram

Got this Aqua green green house at Hobby Lobby. I'll start dwarf daisies in it for my front yard.
Little moments are the sweetest. My little girl eating her oatmeal and sharing my Shakeology shake. My Amaryllis from Christmas bloomed late. 
I selfie. Because sometimes when you are a Mom of a little kid, putting makeup on and doing my hair should be celebrated.
I have a stalker cat. Can I get one minute in peace in the bathroom?
Elsa again in my bathroom window.
First time at gymnastics. Pretty happy...

Silly girls: Cute Monsters

I never got to show you some cute pictures I took when we dressed up as monsters for Halloween. I love to dress up and take pictures. No secret there.
My 2 youngest ones loved it. My 2 oldest ones where party poopers and wanted to be something else.

Instagram lately

I have some super cute pictures on Instagram. I love pics so it's a perfect place for me to hang out.
Giving you a sample of what I have been thinking and posting over there.
You can found me @isabellethornton

My word for 2015 is clean. Clean house, clean eating, clean thought (positive thoughts). Clean everything.

This year I want to reach for the stars. Focus on something that really makes me exited and go for it.

My Master bedroom window. First time in my life decorating my house for Christmas. Wreath on door and windows and lights on the bottom part. we will do the top next year.

It snowed on Christmas day. We had such a warm winter so far and it was like a little blessing from heaven. You can see the daybreak temple in the back.

Sleepy time. A binky, sippy cup, kitty and Mommy.

Follow me and let me know, I will follow you back.
XOXO

Our chaotic Christmas

 I won this Christmas center piece on Instagram. It's from Foxglove flowers and gifts in Provo, Utah. I was so happy because I had nothing for my dinning table decor.
Pretty stunning!
Should I tell you our chaotic Christmas? It all started when I got sick with a weird stomach flu. Then the kids got a cold flu and we spent Christmas week on the couch watching the Harry Potter series. Didn't have Christmas dinner until 3 days later and still wasn't great...The worst thing I think is trying all night to lower my 2 year old temperature. Yep. 
Positive:
I love the Harry Potter series,
No one threw up.
We had awesome gifts this year.

Then, The washer broke down. The dryer too. Got a leak from the washer.
Positive: I had kept our old washer and dryer and the leak didn't damaged the walls. Yep.

Then my car broke down. To found out by a very nice man who was there when I thought my car was going to explode that my water hose had a big hole and it had been taped. So now, I had an accident 4 years ago and this is where I had damage. The mechanic guy taped it instead of replacing it. So dishonest!
The positive: 
My husband fixed it and I held my phone as a flashlight. He was Cutting rubber and all. He is amazing!

At the end, despite of this chaos I can only be grateful. Everything worked out and could have been much worse. We are healthy after all and our little house and car are still working.
Some blessings are in disguised...
How was your Christmas?

I am really sorry about last week and the no show for the party. We were all very sick and I remember about the party at 2 am on Sunday and was very sick. It's very hard to take care of a sick family when you are sick. I apologize. I'll blog tomorrow about our Chaotic Christmas.
 I am really grateful for your posts and visits every week. I wish you a wonderful 2015 year of health, success and fun blogging.
Starting a new linky for January. XOXO
