Day 9 - Day after Christmas... my favorite day of the year!

Wednesday, December 26, 2012

Is the day after Christmas your favorite day of the year too? Unquestionably it is my favorite day of the year since I became a grown up and started hosting Christmas. Boxing Day! I wish we celebrated that here.

All the stress and the build up to Christmas are done... kaput... stick a fork in it!

My reward for getting through it all? I lounged around the house all day long in my fleece pajamas and fuzzy pink piggy slippers, where the house was toasty warm on the inside while the snow was briskly falling outside!

What a perfectly cozy day to spend with my family playing with all the toys that Santa brought us. We definitely burned off yesterday's calories playing with the Xbox Kinect. One of the games was Zumba Rush for Xbox. I spent so much time competing with my family shaking my groove thing. What great exercise! I also did track & field, tennis, football and boxing! It was a spectacular day of indoor activity.

Now that I have gotten through the dreaded holiday period in terms of weight loss, my eye is on the prize. I am looking forward to turning a new chapter in 2013 and really focusing on my streaks and my journey towards good health.

By the numbers since 11/6/12:

Exercise Streak - 9 Days
Tracking and within calorie limits - 50 days
Water consumption of 64 oz - 36 days

Here's to our good health!

    I'm glad you had such a wonderful day! Love your slippers! So cute.
    The games sound so fun! We have a Wii but I haven't ventured into buying games for it for myself. We do have the Wii fit, though, so maybe I'll get brave on snow days.
    It snowed here yesterday (day after Christmas) but just a good dusting. I can't imagine living up where you do today! Are you supposed to get all the mess they've predicted? I would totally go out to build some unusual snow statues!
    But then, it's probably not so novel to you. I remember when my cousin's hubby from Hawaii first saw it snow here. It was about 1/4 inch but he went outside and scraped every bit of snow up in the yard and built a tiny, muddy snowman and was SO proud of it...lol.
