Good morning, everyone!  It’s already been a great day, that’s for sure, so let’s keep this train rolling!  I started the morning out first with some in-home yoga.  The great thing about the Google Chromecast that Ryan got me for Christmas is that I can not only watch Netflix/Hulu/HBOGo right on my tv, but I can also cast YouTube.  This means ALLLLL the free workout vids I want, straight to my TV {hellooo Popsugar/Fitsugar, Tone It Up, etc}.  This morning I started out with the Popsugar Yoga Video that I always rave about, with Mandy Ingber.  I plan on lacing up the sneaks and going for a 5-mile run this evening, but I wanted to start the morning out with some activity.

You get the idea…our DVD rack game is strong.

For breakfast, I had some of my faaaaaavorite Sweet Potato & Brussels Sprout Hash, with a fried egg, and basil chicken sausage on the side.

Plus a little grapefruit action…

Man, I love a good grapefruit!

I also wanted to fill you guys in on how my New Year’s Res is going…

This past Tuesday night, I took part in my first Charlotte volunteer activity with Hands On Charlotte,  as a part of my 2015 New Year’s Resolution to volunteer at least once a month.  I absolutely loved it.  I wish I could just spend all of my time volunteering {{anyone want to help me win the lottery so we can make that happen?}}.  My brother, Ryan, has actually been participating in this same Tuesday night volunteering program for the past few weeks and he recommended it to me.  Just to give you a brief rundown, we spent the evening at a local recovery center, that helps chemically dependent families get back on their feet.  Here, we played with the kids at the center while there parents go to classes, run errands, etc.  Having 20 younger cousins of my own, it definitely reminded me of when my family used to get together and we all would play.  The kids had so much energy, and they were so funny.  Due to the fact that it was cold we had to take it indoors.  We basically played hide and seek the entire time.  It was so much fun just to go and spend time with them, and act like a kid again.  I’ve already signed up for next week and I can’t wait to go back.  I’m also keeping my eyes out on the volunteering calendar for other opportunities.

If you guys haven’t yet, I highly recommend getting involved in your own communities in any way that you can.  Even if you’re donating something every now and again, every little bit helps!

What did you guys have for breakfast today?  How do you participate in your communities?
