I think I'm finally done with our Christmas shopping and now comes all the wrapping. I still haven't found a Hatchimal for Addison though, so if you find yourself with an extra one this holiday season, please let me know and we can work something out :-) Surprisingly, my eating has stayed under control during all of this craziness. I typically eat anything and everything during my stressful times, but I was so busy with everything, that I was lucky if I got to eat at all!! I even made 4 batches of fudge and 3 batches of brittle this past week as well. I've had minimal amounts of both, which is a huge NSV for me as well! I love that I'm (mostly) staying on track during the holidays and still working towards those goals!!
Here's what I have planned for this coming week:
Sunday - Grilled Hamburgers
Monday - Leftovers
Tuesday - Slow Cooker Cream Cheese Taquitos
Wednesday - Fiesta Chowder
Thursday - Chicken & Biscuits Casserole
Friday - Grilled London Broil
Saturday - Cocktail Meatballs
I've stayed on track with my workouts and finished the week strong with a PR in the Cocoa Cup 5k that is a couple of towns away. I ran the hardest I ever have and am honestly pretty proud of myself. I love seeing what I am able to accomplish if I push myself.
Sunday - Rest
Monday - 5 mile run
Tuesday - Full Body Plyometrics
Wednesday - Upper Body w/ Jumping Jacks
Thursday - P90X3 Yoga
Friday - Lower Body Circuit
Saturday - Cocoa Cup 5k
I hope you all have a great week and a very Merry Christmas. I hope to post a re-cap of the Color 5k very soon!
So long for today...

We had a great weekend this weekend. Friday we went golfing with some friends, Saturday was spent shopping and then around the house working on this and that. Sunday started with our sweet niece’s baptism, followed by lunch with friends in downtown Charleston and ended with family movie night watching It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown and Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. I’m so excited for the holidays and love that the temps have dipped enough to actually make it feel like Fall in the Lowcountry!! I also had three great runs over the weekend to test out the foot. It was a little sore, but nothing that a little bit of icing couldn’t take care of. I’ve also gotten a brace for my foot and I think it’s really helped as well.
I have my menu all planned out and I’m ready to have a great on-track week and I’m looking forward to getting this bloat out of my body and starting to feel as good as I know I’m supposed to. I actually planned out my breakfasts and lunches for the week in addition to the dinners. #overachiever Here’s what I have planned:
Cookie Dough Oatmeal, Meal Replacement Shakes, Eggs & Ezekiel Toast
Bento Box, Grilled Chicken Salad, Buffalo Chicken Wraps, Cauliflower “Fried Rice” and Chicken
Sunday – Crockpot Rotisserie Chicken
Monday – Dinner Out
Tuesday – Clean Kung Pao Chicken
Wednesday – Crockpot Beef Roast
Thursday – Leftovers
Friday – Grilled Hamburgers
Saturday – Homemade Pizza
Sunday – PiYo Strong Legs
Monday – BodyShred Workout 1
Tuesday – BodyShred Workout 2
Wednesday – PiYo Sweat
Thursday – Body Shred Workout 1
Friday – BodyShred Workout 1 & 3 mile run
Saturday – 3 mile run
Ok, that’s all for today. I hope you all have a wonderful day and even better week!
So long for today…

The second reason that I haven’t posted, if I’m being completely honest, is because I’m really struggling right now. I’m struggling with my nutrition as well as my fitness. I keep having the intention of getting back on track with my eating, but then something comes up, we go somewhere fun or Halloween hits. I’m starting the Lean Life Plan this week and hope I can stick with it. I know the first few days are the hardest, so here’s hoping I can get through, right? If you’re interested in joining or learning more, please let me know. I’d love the extra accountability!! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
I’m starting a new workout program next Monday that I’m pretty excited about and hope it helps to keep me on track through the holidays. Yes, I will splurge for Thanksgiving and Christmas, but hope I can keep it all under control.
I hope you’re all well and will try to check back very soon!!
So long for today…
