The Last Day of the Year, My Favorite Discount, a New Year’s Cleanse and a Jamba Juice Gift Card Giveaway

The Last Day of the Year, My Favorite Discount, a New Year’s Cleanse and a Jamba Juice Gift Card Giveaway


Oh my word. Can you believe this is that last day of the year? Where the heck has this year gone?

The winner of the Dick’s Sporting Goods Gift Card is Kelly C. Woot!

Stay tuned though friends because there’s another giveaway here!


So many people are doing the whole year in review on Instagram and such, but I’m not sure if my heart is into doing that. I’m kind of ready to just move on and start a new year. I mean, this year has been wonderful with so many ups and downs and life lessons, but it’s been a tough one on me and I’m really ready to just start a new one with a clear set of goals and new priorities. You know?


Let’s play catch up first before we talk about the new year, shall we?

I forgot to tell you that the Monday before Christmas the boys and I went to the post office to ship some things and get a few last minute packages and stamps and such. Well, we saw the local news out there. I was really not looking my finest and I told the boys that I had a feeling they were going to try to talk to us.

Well, on our way out the nice man, Jared, approached me and asked it he could ask me a few questions. I wanted to run away, but instead I said yes. He miked me all up and everything. Pretty funny. Here’s the link to the short clip.

Ugh. The very next day was the day I got my hair done and told her to really help me out. Ha ha.


Okay, moving on.

Since I’m still in recovery mode and taking things easy with my hip and the healing stress fracture and such, I’ve been choosing sleeping in rather than getting up early to get my workout done before anyone wakes up. My workouts have been a good mix of elliptical time and strength, but have been relatively short. Just enough to get it done. And I haven’t been alone.

2016-12-22 12.10.57

And yes, sometimes I have been in my pajamas while they build LEGOS.

2016-12-20 08.37.58


Other than my home workouts I’ve walked Bear and been teaching at the gym.

2016-12-29 13.05.58

I was going to attempt a few miles outside yesterday morning and while I was telling the boys Judah sighed, turned over, got out of his cozy bed and said, “I’m coming with you.” My heart just about melted.

2016-12-30 08.55.19

We didn’t even make it a mile, but it was still fabulous.

I got my first actual jogging miles in on the treadmill afterwards and did my annual watching on Love Actually.

2016-12-30 18.33.53

It already feels like Christmas was so long ago which is so strange to me. I hope you had a magical Christmas.

2016-12-25 10.56.11

Ours was amazing, but full of random not so great things happening as well. One of them being poor Joaquin getting bit in the face by a dog on Christmas morning. No, NOT our dog.  This guy is rocks.

2016-12-23 16.20.00

So does this guy. Ha ha.

2016-12-28 15.31.03

We’ve been having our fair share of coffee and hot cocoa the past couple of weeks. There was one secret Starbucks stop with just the two of us, but only because it was right next to the cleaners where we were picking up clothes.

2016-12-23 16.41.41-1

Other than that it’s been daily morning cheers in pajamas.

2016-12-26 07.35.35

Speaking of morning cheers, I’ve been doing the whole SunButter in coffee with Vital Proteins collagen and Nutpods creamer daily.

2016-12-22 08.20.522016-12-22 08.21.13

The boys turned 7 on Wednesday. It seems like just yesterday they were little babies.

2016-12-28 16.32.31

I got an Instant Pot for Christmas from the hubs (along with a sweatshirt that says “Always Running Late”).

2016-12-30 13.36.01

I have definitely taken the hint and need some fun things to try in this Instant Pot. I’ve been wanting one for so long, but now that I have it I’m a little intimidated. I’ve got some work to do.


Before we get to the giveaway I have to pass along my favorite deal that’s out there right now. It’s from Handful and it’s awesome.


Heck yes you can save a ton of money! Woot!

I’m currently obsessed with the Handful Flippin’ Long Sleeve Shirt. I may need to stock up for the new year with these discounts.

My personal goals for 2017 aren’t down on paper just yet (I still have a few more hours to get that done), but taking time to do devotionals at night is one of them. I came across this last night.

2016-12-30 23.00.40

How awesome is that? Finding the strength to start all over again is that hardest part sometimes, isn’t it?


Okay and finally, before I say good bye for the year of 2016, I have a little something for you.

We got sent a really sweet package and gift card from Jamba Juice.

2016-12-18 19.44.092016-12-18 19.46.582016-12-18 19.49.20

They also gave us some extra $10 gift cards to give away.

2016-12-31 06.36.42

Fun, right?


I loved reading your comments on the last giveaway and your fitness goals for 2017 so now I want to hear about a personal goal of yours.

Mine is to start saying “no” more often, give myself 20 minutes in the morning to plan out the day and do my devotional, be more kind to myself and others, stop eating so much sugar (the cleanse will give me a good start for that) and make more healthy family meals with my Instant Pot.


Speaking of goals, I came across this last night.

2016-12-30 23.00.40

How awesome is that? Finding the strength to start all over again is that hardest part sometimes, isn’t it?


To enter the giveaway, leave me a comment below with a personal goal or two of yours.

*This is not a sponsored giveaway, I just have 4 extra gift cards they sent me and I want to give them to you.

*Giveaway ends 1/3 at 11:59 PM and winners will be chosen at random.

Have a wonderful New Year and I’ll see you on the other side! Let’s let 2017 be a year we are proud of!

    My goal is to make sleep more of a priority so that I average 7 hours a night. When I’m busy, sleep is the first thing I sacrifice, and I like to tell myself that I don’t need to sleep. However, I know that I am much happier (and healthier!) when I sleep more.

    I have a few fitness goals but one of my personal goals is to complete a 6 weeks journaling course on spiritual growth and hopefully it becomes a habit. I’m getting a Bible journaling kit in the mail, hopefully soon, and this will help even more to make it fun and memorable. I already keep a daily journal so hopefully it won’t be such a stretch.

    Tess Moore says:

    Happy New Year and Happy Birthday to the boys!!!! Loved the T.V. segment….movie star 😉 Love even more the quote by F. Scott Fitzgerald…powerful.

    2017: I hope to RECEIVE all the good things the universe has to offer…..I must be open to seeing the good, the abundance, the health and the happiness that God has provide.

    Megan says:

    My goals are to focus more on my healthy eating habits and getting more sleep! I’d also like to work on some money budgeting. I’ve never been very good at that.

    I just want to be a healthy person. I need to heal my bones

    Abby says:

    My personal goal is to “be present” when I am with my kids and husband. I need to put down the phone and stop scrolling through instagram! And my personal running goal is sub 1:40 half.

  25. 25
    Erica says:

    Happy New Year. My goal is to find balance and slow down. I’ve had some health issues most recently which I believe were partly stress related along with a new health diagnosis. Slowing down and finding balance are a must to control my life and ultimately my health. I must make both a priority.

  26. 26
    Laura says:

    My goals are pretty simple and I’m sure you can relate to them:

    1) stay healthy and injury free
    2) run more just for fun (without all the stress of trying to PR every time)

    Happy new year!

    Krystal Dunlap says:

    My goals for this year are to drink more water and to not sweat the small stuff.
