I finished day one of my fitness Advent calendar. It was easy peasy like I knew it would be. I'm going to try and take a quick picture of me doing each activity as photographic proof. I don't want it to seem as I'm all talk on here. So here is my poorly done picture of me doing a plank
It may of been better, but I had to keep redoing my plank as one of my doggies kept thinking I was on the floor for kisses. So it took me a minute to reach over and hit the button on my laptop to take the darn thing.
Tomorrow is jumping jacks for two minutes. Starting off nice and easy.
Hello Dear Readers!
I hope everyone of you had an amazing Thanksgiving weekend and made good decisions and made time to be active. I tried my best, the active part was pretty slim due to cold temps and me being a chicken when the thermometer reads below 30 degrees Fahrenheit. Brrr. However I did OK on everything, proof being the scale actually read less today than it did on Wednesday. If I had splurged too much it would of been higher due to water weight gain. I did have soda, and that was probably the worse I did.
My main goal for December is to have fun and not stress too much. If I lived in the Southern hemisphere December would be my most favorite month. I love Christmas and everything it stands for.
So for December lets not worry too much about the food we eat as long as we keep 80/20 in our mind. Eat great 80% of the time so that 20% of the time we can enjoy those Holiday sweets and treats. No guilt is allowed this month. We will keep active enough to keep those bad, negative thoughts at bay.
For some fitness fun I'm thinking up a fitness Advent calendar. There will be a different exercise each day. So here is the list:
And I don't mean any great deals I bought, because I don't really do the whole going to a store and dealing with crazy people to save a couple bucks. However, I'm all over online Black Friday sales and Beachbody has a great one going on today.
Just look at these:
I really want that Turbofire one. May have to see if I have an extra 20.00 in the budget for an early Christmas gift. It's never too early to get started on next years resolutions, right?
Just a quick post to let my dear readers I'm still around. It's a busy time of year with the holidays and finals coming up.
I hope all my dear readers have a great holiday and remember to try and make good choices. However, if you do slip up it's not the end of the world. Take an after dinner walk and tomorrow is always a new day.
I received my Shakeology samples in the mail and I tried the greenberry flavor first. It was good, not knock-your-socks-off delicious, but good. As in I could handle drinking this everyday without cringing and shuddering at the thought of a single sip. It has a bit of sweet followed by an earthy/grassy/herb-y flavor. It tastes healthy. I mixed it in with 1% milk and had it as part of an early dinner between classes yesterday.
I was going to drink the vanilla today, but decided to wait and have it for lunch during work tomorrow. I wish the sample pack came with the strawberry, but it didn't it.
I also went to the gym yesterday for the first time in about a month. I LOVED IT! I don't know why I let so much time go between working out, it felt great. My endorphins were pumping and all those feel good hormones were...well, making me feel good. Abs are sore today, but it's a hurt so good sore.
Well not much else to put in here. I'm off to plan dinner. Going to try and make a healthier fried chicken (other then oven-fried).
