Good morning and Happy New Year!
I had a wonderful and low-key New Year’s Eve! Lots of time with family and friends, lots of snacks, and a little champagne!
New Year’s Day was a relaxing one; We took my nephew to the Henry Ford Mueseum in Dearborn, Michigan and everyone had a blast! It is so much fun to see him excited about the planes, trains, and old fashioned cars! We finished the day with a really nice dinner at my parents house with some extended family.
This morning I woke up early and headed for the gym for my first workout of 2015! I started with a mile jog on the treadmill and then some stretching, before completing this lower body/core workout:
I used 2 20 lb. Kettlebells for the deadlifts, and used just one of them for the goblet squats.

And lastly, I took a few minutes last night to create a new note in my phone with my fitness goals for 2015. For me, making very specific short and longer term goals really help me to push myself and also to help me see how far I’ve come! Here are some of mine:
- 185# Back Squat (20 pound increase over my current max)
- 105# Snatch (15 pound increase over my current max)
- String together 5 Butterfly pull ups
- Complete a race that is heavily biking
- Perform a bar muscle up without a band
- 235# Deadlift
What are your fitness goals for 2015?
