Healthy Vegetable Barley Soup

Happy first Monday of 2016! Here's to coming back to reality, right? I'm excited today to kick of this year on a strong note and feel more than ready to after about 2 months of some hard core indulging! I think that as I get older, the holidays seem to become longer. Not complaining, but I'm definitely ready to get back into the swing of things and rid my body of the unnecessary pounds of sugar and alcohol that was consumed!  I started today with my 6 a.m. spinning class. My participants were awesome, as always, and I could just feel the excitement of a brand new year. Stick around till the end of this post for my spin playlist if you need some music motivation! 

I'm heading to work now for a full week ahead, but I do feel very refreshed and ready to tackle it, especially after a packed weekend full of cooking my meals ahead and getting a lot of chores done around the apartment. Before I go I wanted to share this amazing winter soup recipe for those who are starting to feel the cooler weather!
