Busy, Busy Weekend!

Monday, December 03, 2012

What a busy weekend! Friday I... gosh, I can't even remember what I did on Friday! Oh, yes, the hubs and I had date night. The kiddos stayed at his parent's house because one had to be at church until 11pm and that is right down the street from the in-laws. Scott worked a half day on Saturday and I ran a bunch of errands. I had to get my blood drawn, and was required to fast, so I did that first thing in the morning. Then went to see my mom and pick up some clothes (ones that FIT!) that I had sent to her house. After that I did some shopping for boots - still can't find any I love!

Then I met the family at home and we made sugar cookies that the kids decorated. I had 1 - 1/2 cookies - I think that's a fair amount! I sent all but 4 of them home with the kids so that they aren't hanging around the house! Sunday was catching up on housework. Scott stayed home today to do some more housework and get things in order. Plus, he has vacation time to use and he worked all weekend.

I really need to get back to things. I've been saying it for weeks. I haven't been HORRIBLE, but I haven't been good. I am still going to the gym, just not 5 days a week like I was. And since traffic is worse this time of year I have less time at the gym. By the time I get home I just don't want to workout. I have been tracking my eating here and there, but not daily. I am still trying to be good about what I eat but it seems like it's much harder lately.

We have our 5k next week.... Man, that got here quick! I need to make sure to get some run time in this week so I'm not COMPLETELY off the running wagon for the race! I am REALLY hoping for under 30 minutes, but I don't know if that will happen. I just want to do well! I need to figure out my outfit for the race too... I have thigh high socks, red and white striped. But the rest of my workout clothes are the wrong colors for this race! I need to figure that out this week. Yikes!!

Anyway, both my husband and I are feeling the effects of not being on track (him much worse than myself). I tried on my new work pants that I ordered. They fit great, but I fear they will be too tight for sitting all day. They are fine when I am standing! I may need to lose a few more pounds... But, I'm not sure what I'm weighing in at right now. I didn't weigh all weekend and before that I was retaining water - so who knows! I shall find out tomorrow.

Quick plan for this month:

1000 fitness minutes (since I can't even reach this, I'll start here before trying for 1250 again)
Stay within calorie range 27 of 31 days (2/27)
Get some workouts in during my holiday break (Dec 21 - Jan 2)
Use the 12 moves of Christmas workout as ST, 3x per week

Have a happy Monday, everyone!

    I'm impressed by your cookie will power - nice job! This really is a tough time of year to stay motivated, isn't it? It looks like you have reasonable goals to work towards and a general game plan. Let's make it through December successfully!

    I'm glad you have set your goals for what will work best for you over the holidays. Maybe use those new work pants as a bit of motivation to get to the gym one more morning a week, or an extra yoga workout in on the weekends.

    Good for you for staying focused, on track most of the time and doing the planning you need to be successful. This time of year, these things are hard to do so consider yourself victorious! emoticon

    The 12 moves of Christmas is rough! I just did it today--at first I was like "This is easy" but when I had to do the plyo lunges I thought I was going to die! I only did it once today, but later this week I'll try to repeat it once or twice. Unfortunately, my gym is undergoing repairs/renovations and hence I cannot work out there (except for taking classes) for the next two weeks, so I'm planning on incorporating the 12 moves throughout the next two weeks.

    It's hard to stay on track this time of year. Just stay on track as much as possible and come January, once all the crazyness has died down, things will go back to normal. We're making sugar cookies this weekend too- they are so hard to resist!! You can do it!
