Busy weekend ahead

Friday, December 07, 2012

Success journal
1. stayed within calorie range 6 days in a row
2. did upper body strength training
3. went to zumba for cardio
4. cooked chicken and ground turkey ahead

Great: eating, exercise and motivation are all 100%. I was out of my comfort zone yesterday, doing strength training without my personal trainer, in a different part of the gym, with the big muscled guys. It was intimidating. They're all my kids' age, and really pumped, and I'm doing my own thing. I saw a few kids I know, and they were very encouraging, which was nice.

I have my weekend course tonight 5-10pm, and tomorrow 8am to 6pm. Then tomorrow is DS14's winter concert at 7. So that's why I cooked ahead. Eat right, avoid fast food.

Begining Sat night is Hannukah. I can't believe it. I have about 3 present for DS14, so I'll have to shop for the rest of the days. The older boys will get their gifts when I see them over winter break.

Sunday, I guess I'll do laundry & house cleaning, and food shopping.

"Don't dig your grave with your own knife and fork." -old English proverb

    Great job planning ahead and getting that exercise in! I too would have been intimidated by the weight lifters. I actually changed gyms at one point because it was more of a muscle gym feel than a health/fitness gym.

Happy Hannukah! emoticon

    I hope this doesn't sound nosy or rude but I am very interested in Hanukkah and the gifts you give. I have had and still have friends who are Jewish but didn't want to ask. I studied the history of it on my own and learned about things like the religious significance, menorah, gelt, the dreidel, - not sure if that is spelled right - , and the foods but I was always eager to learn more.
