I managed to get out and buy kettlebells today, as well as gear for running outside in the winter. So I have no excuse. For exercise, I'm thinking running 2 days a week, kettlebells 2 days a week and a class at Goodlife once a week. In addition, I'd like to get to the Fitbit goals of 10,000 steps and 10 flights of stairs per day. 10,000 steps is tough for me in my sit down job for sure. I can pretty easily get to 5000 steps a day, and the 10 flights of stairs isn't usually a problem, but 10,000 steps is a tall order.
I made turkey soup yesterday, as well as split pea with ham. I thought they were both pretty tasty, but I think I liked the pea soup the best. Both are slow carb friendly, but I think they'll be gone before I start back into slow carb in earnest.
I'm not getting any of the house cleaning/organization I had planned done. Maybe sometimes it's better to just putter around and relax.
Had pizza for dinner tonight. My stomach is protesting a bit I think because of the pizza, and yet I still want to eat junk food. Have to get it all out of my system in the next 2 days, because after that it's back to slow carb.
I need to re-create my running playlist, which got lost in a cell phone transfer. It really helps me to run to music. I want to do a 5K resolution run in my neighbourhood on New Year's Eve, so I'll want my playlist for that, and I'll need to map out a 5K route as it's likely the paths I normally used won't be plowed. We've gotten upwards of 40 cm (16 inches or so) of snow in the last couple of weeks. The major sidewalks are plowed (and I see people running on them), but the paths I normally use are probably not going to be passable again until spring, or a major thaw.
Looks like New Year's is going to be a low key event around here. Possibly just me and my boyfriend. Maybe a friend of his and his girlfriend if they can get a babysitter. Might be nice to have a quiet evening with a movie, fire and some bubbly though.
