Happy Tuesday! This week I had an easier week regarding number of days I worked out. I try to work out at least 5 days a week, but I am also a believer that sometimes that just isn’t practical and that is okay! With my mother in law coming to town and having last minute Christmas shopping, I had to reprioritize my schedule and skip some days at the gym (and my gym was closed Saturday and Sunday and working out at home with the husband, baby, dog and mother in law was just not happening!). I like to think all the running around I did was like an added workout any way haha!
I also took it easy on my eating and even had drinks this week! I feel like when you workout so much year round, it is okay, and even good for you, to let it go for a week once every four or five months! I am not saying stuff your face with everything you can eat or drink, but if you want something, have it! Just don’t have the entire big cookie or entire pie in one sitting.
That being said, it is nice to be to focusing on eating better again and I look forward to all the left over holiday food being out of the house! I guess that is how you know when you have made clean eating a part of your lifestyle and stopped viewing eating a certain way as a diet. Your body starts craving those vegetables and fruits and you look forward to how your body is going to feel eating that way again!
I hope everyone had a great holiday! This year was so special since the little is finally into opening gifts and was so excited for all his presents! It is just so fun to have that Christmas magic back in our lives. It reminds you how magical this time of year really is and it is all the more special when you are reminded by seeing it through your child’s eyes.
Have a great workout week!
