Today is my last day of work before I leave for the holidays! I don't go online much when I'm at home, just check e-mails, so I probably won't be blogging until next year! I'm still holding my own with weight! I'll probably start the new year with the same 6-8 lbs. to loose that I started 2012!
I ran last Friday. I ran 1 loop outside and then went inside (it was already dark) and ran another 20+ mins. I was really struggling on the hills Friday and was sore after that run. I went shopping Saturday morning and then tried to get in some cleaning before DD#2's basketball game. They played a really good game and only lost by 3 pts!
We had our extended family party on Sunday (over 50 people!). My 2 sisters and I were in charge (for some reason) and we had it at a subdivision clubhouse. We spent 3 hours Saturday night setting up. The party was 1-4 on Sunday and then we had to stay to clean up - a lot of people helped though. It was an exhausting weekend! I did eat a lot at that the party, but I didn't have dinner that night!
The rest of the week has been so busy. I played a little Bball with DD#2, friend and DH on Tuesday and then ran/walked for over 2 miles. DD#2 didn't have practice yesterday, but she was really tired and needed to study for her mid-terms, so we didn't go yesterday - made Christmas cookies instead (but I didn't eat any - yet!). She had 6:30 am practice today and tonight I have to go to a Christmas party at my boss' house. I'm not too thrilled about it - I think his wife is bored and wanted to have a party! It's really raining today and then a cold front will come in and it will be real windy & cold the next couple of days.
Anyway, tomorrow even though the kids are out of school and I'm on vacation, I'll be busy with running around, eye doctor appointments and helping set up for the live nativity, so I'm not sure if I'll get a chance to run. DD#2 might not have practice, so she'll want to do something. The weekend will be busy - going to mall with daughters and DD#1's boyfriend on Saturday. I'm done with most of my shopping, so it will just be a day of people watching and strolling through the crowds. The mall we're going to is very festive for the holidays. Saturday night, I'll be watching the Falcons clinch home field playoff advantage! Sunday is our live nativity from 6-9. We have to be there at 4, so it will be a very long night!
The good thing is DD#2 wants to stay conditioned and practice Bball over the holidays. The varsity team is going to Disney World for a tournament and all the coaches are going, so the Freshman & some JV are pretty much on their own for practice from 12/28 - 1/1. This will give me plenty of motivation for exercise going into the new year! Hopefully I can keep the eating/snacking in check!
Wishing everyone a blessed holiday season and a happy new year!
