I just realized that Thanksgiving is only a week away.. Wow!
That makes me realize how close the end of the semester is and how much I have to do between now and then!
Thankfully I have the whole week of Thanksgiving off so I will have that time to work on stuff!
I am trying to think of fun ways to stay active on Thanksgiving. Anyone have any traditions? I would have signed up for a 5K but I think that it is too late now and we wont be ready by then. One tradition that we have in the KC area that is kind of cool is the Plaza lights ceremony (if you aren't from KC you probably have no idea what I'm talking about.) Basically the Plaza is a big shopping center that is famous for it's Christmas lights, which go up on Thanksgiving night and stay up until New Years. My parents live about 5 miles from the Plaza so it has always been a nice tradition to walk down there after dinner (at this point, we care more about getting the exercise than seeing the ceremony since weve seen it 1000000 times (exaggerate much?) but my hubby has never seen it so I am going to take him after dinner with my parents (it is also a tradition to eat early which is good lol) Who else has fun traditions for Thanksgiving, related to exercise or not? Are you hosting it or going to a family members? What are you responsible for making? Hubby and I have volunteered to make turnips (his suggestion, sounds ymmy though) and some kind of dessert, probably something I find on sparkrecipes since I am obsessed with it!
Also I wanted to let you know that I have begun doing some of the cardio videos on here by Coach Nicole.
It is fun but they are kicking my butt! It is hard to keep up with her sometimes because my balance isnt great due to my surgery, so some of the moves I cant do too well. I did one this morning! Here is the link: http://www.sparkpeople.com/res
Gotta go to school now! Have a great day everyone!
