Wow! It's been so busy lately with work, exercise and prep work for Sunday. For Jesus' birth I do not mind though, I actually love being busy. That might sound strange to many people but once you get into the swing of a more active life you wish for very few moments of down time. I guess that is what happens when you eat healthy, exercise and treat yourself properly.
Today I was so thankful to get to the gym and work off some of those, ahem, um, cookies that I ate this weekend after they came out of the oven. It's our duty to test them right? Okay, so maybe that is bad but I was proud that I managed to eat just one of each kind - three cookies over two days. Not the healthiest but I'm sure that if I moderate it will be okay throughout the holiday weekend. Have you all been doing okay with the temptations?
My workout included 4 miles in 44 minutes. I'm still working slow but it's not really a wonder with all the cookies filling my legs. After the treadmill fun run, I bounced on the exercise ball and lifted 15 pound weights and did full situps with a 10 pound weight. Afterwards I engaged in some weight lifting with a cord machine and also 2 miles on the stationary bike in 10 minutes. Not the longest workout but I can really feel it in my legs so I'm thrilled!
How was your workout today? What did you all get into today?
