Keeping busy and MOVING

Hope that you are having a great and active holiday. I will be back to blogging daily after the holidays and when I start P90X2 full time. In the meantime I have been dabbling in the workouts and I am HURTING... sooo good! I need to add more air to my medicine and stability balls but I think that this is going to be a round for the records. I am going to smash this one outta the park and my MOM is going to be doing it with me. Mr. Wonderful just can not see himself "rolling around on a ball"... so Mom and I are beginning as soon as I get back from New Brunswick. I have also been snowshoeing... did 5 kms on Tuesday and it was awesome... here is a picture of our head field where I trekked... I live in God's country, what can I say!

Happy New Years friends!!

Logging my food

Do you do that? Do you log your food for the day... everyday? When I am focused and doing well it means that I am logging my food and exercising. That is it... it is the secret to weight loss... be honest about what you are consuming and work out daily. It works for me when I follow my own advice.

Anyway, I am leaving you with a couple more motivational prints that I found on Pinterest. I did Cardio X last night followed by a 15 minute sprint... tonight is night 2 in my B210K program that I am doing to regain some of my stamina that I have lost before the big competition. My hubby is getting jealous of my motivation and he is likely to cave and join me soon.

On the nutrition side... I ate 5 small meals yesterday (first time in a long time)and I even made a spicy chili quinoa salad... it was EXCELLENT. Anyway, I kept the calorie count under my goal and feel great this morning and back on it again. I did have some sleeplessness last night... not sure why but I am hoping that it will be better tonight.

Make it a great day folks!

What's new?

Are you all ready for the holidays? I can't wait to have some time off to focus on my family first, my workouts second and my studies third. Two weeks of being selfish... I just hope that I can come back to reality after it is over.

The plan? Well, I am running and working out haphazardly until January 16th when I start a new challenge. I am part of my Coach's team for P90x2 and I will have Tony Horton judging my results!!! OMGoodness, that should be the motivation that I need to really BRING IT this round. I have all the necessary equipment under the tree all wrapped up pretty. I will play around with the workouts and test them before the challenge so that I can really work it hard once I begin. I am getting my dear sweet hubby to join the challenge too because you all know that he hits it out of the park when he puts his mind to it. He also has the body that allows him to make HUGE changes quickly. Anyway, I wanted to check in and wish you all a happy holiday and leave you with a new sentiment for girls like me, thanks to Pinterest (if you are on Pinterest add me... I have no followers :P):
