As I transition into the new year of 2019, there are a few things I want to start back up, and few others I want to stop! The first couple activities I want to dedicate my time to is detoxing more frequently, and getting back into my routine of exercise. Before we got pregnant I exercised 3-4 times a week! So going into the new year I am determined to run, ab work, and walk. I also plan to show more videos and live activities throughout my journey. What I want to discontinue is breast feeding! I have sacrificed 6.5 months and I am proud of my commitment; however, I don’t want be at my wedding and honey moon having to pump every 3-4 hours. I think I have dedicated enough time. Besides… Alana has at least 40 bags of milk in the freezer so that should carry her into February.
Another great gift I have been blessed with is the calorie burner of breast feeding! I have maintained my weight beautifully, all I have to work on is toning!
The first dish of the year I would like to share is a simple Rosemary Seared Salmon with fresh Green beans and Almonds. This recipe is fresh, quick, and will only take about 30 minutes! It is delicious! My husband went back for seconds lol!!
