‘Tis the Season

I am struggling with the Holidays. I promised myself that I wouldn’t and here we are in December, it’s cold and snowy and my winter weight is starting to kick in. Why? Oh yeah, I haven’t been working out to my highest potential and my food choices have been poor. Who’s fault is that? Mine. who can fix it? Me. Am I gonna take control of the situation before I fall further behind? Darn right! SO I out together  my Holiday Plan.

Mondays: Cardio for 1 hour (either cycling, swimming, or running),& an Ab workout at home

Tuesdays: Cardio for an hour (Turbo Kick or a DVD at home like Personal Training with Jackie or a P90X DVD)

Wednesday: Weight training (either at Body Pump or on my own at the gym)

Thursdays: Body Flow (yoga) for an hour then running.

Fridays: Cardio for an hour (running)

Saturdays: Ab workout and strength training

Sundays: Rest day.

I am going to eat out less. I am going to add more veggies to lunch and dinner. I will eat breakfast everyday. Snacks will be fresh raw veggies, nuts, or a piece of fruit. Water will be my drink of choice, followed by 100% fruit juice. I have a notebook in the kitchen to track my food and to journal about my day.

I am making this a challenge for me. This plan is not “new” to me, I am simply putting together everything I have learned this past year. I am hoping it will get me well prepared for our P90X group in January and give me the kick in the pants that I need. And boy, do I need a kick in the pants right now.

Remember MamavationTV tonight 9 CST. We are talking family yoga with special guest Christine Rustuccia. I will be there taking extensive notes. I love yoga. I love how it makes me feel physically and spiritually. It allows me a way to escape and still get a workout in. My boys even love to practice yoga with me from time to time (see pictures below). Earth Footwear is our sponsor for this weeks blogging carnival. Simply cannot get enough of their shoes!

Special Thanks goes out to Rachel Steffen and Shelley Oswald. You ladies are truly amazing, strong, and dedicated. I have enjoyed watching you grow and have learned so much from both of you throughout this campaign. Both of you have motivated me in so many ways, i am so proud of all your accomplishments over the last few weeks. Congrats to both of you!

    There is just something about the snow and cold that makes me feel like a mother bear. I just need to get it in my head I am not hibernating like one. Having the plan is half the battle. Good luck sticking to it this week.
