Welcome back!

Welcome back!

Welcome back everybody to another edition of Sunday Fitness & Food.

Thank You for everybody linking- up last week. We had so many new fitness and food bloggers linking up, it was a true pleasure reading all your posts.

We’re already half-way through January… January means a new start with healthy eating habits and a healthy lifestyle routine. Whatever routine works for you, whether it is Running, Yoga, Pilates,… as along as you’re able to stick with it on regular basis that’s the routine that’s the best for you!

The last few days I have been reading posts from bloggers about what term they most want to identify themselves with in 2017. The term that was mentioned in quite a few posts was FOCUS, followed by Epic (!).

I personally love the word FOCUS. We live in a fast paced society. It’s hard to keep up with the constant stimulation from so many outlets, especially from the vast amounts of Social Media channels. Re-learning to focus and being able to funnel our thoughts will help us so much better not to lose perspective of our goals for the new year. So, FOCUS is definitely the word of 2017 for me.

In other news…

2 of the posts from last week’s Sunday Fitness & Food Link-Up I would like to share with you are

Last week’s Workouts by Happy Fit Mama. I really enjoyed reading this training log. The freezing temps didn’t let Happy Fit Mama stop her from getting her runs and strength training done! Love dedication like this! Stop by and get inspired!

Your thoughts here
  1. Happy Sunday! Thanks for hosting!

  2. I’m glad to see the linkup is back! I think “Focus” is a great word for 2017…I may need to borrow that one too!

  3. Hi Ilka. Thanks for hosting and hope your holidays were wonderful! ~Heather

  4. I love the word FOCUS! That is a great word for the year!

  5. Thanks for sharing my post! My fingers are crossed that this week’s workouts do not include as many single digit temperature runs. My word for 2017 is grit. I set some big goals that are going to call for some serious grit digging!

  6. Focus is such a great word! Especially at the start of a new year. I’m excited to see what 2017 will bring!

  7. Focus is a great word! My word this year is “calm”, as in, I won’t overreact before bad things even happen.

  8. TThanks for hosting, Ilka. I am finding that daily meditation is really helping me with my focus.

  9. I love the word Focus for 2017! That and balance is a great combination for me anyway! This week was challenging staying caught up with my blog reading and even quite the challenge on posting from the road on Sunday.
    But sometimes having fun is what keeps stressful things in balance!
    Thanks Ilka for the link up! Hope you have a great week!

  10. I actually have a blog coming out tomorrow about my second word for 2017. 🙂

  11. How funny, this is the first year that I’ve chosen a “word” and it’s “focus” as well. I guess it must be a good one then? Happy New Year and I hope 2017 is a good one for you 🙂

    • Isn’t it such a good work Kat – it pretty much sums it all up – “if only I could focus more!” Haha!
      Happy Healthy New Year to you, too!

  12. Thank you so much for sharing my granola. The perfect start to a new year. Let’s hope it’s a good one!!!! x

  13. Focus is a great word! 🙂
