Kick it up December

Happy 12-12-12!  What a fun day to be born!  Today we had a GREAT workout with the girls at the church.  I warned them that I was feeling guilty from my overeating and that it would be hard!  I’m happy to say my friend came up with a new name for my class-BEAST!  So, I am now DEATH and BEAST!!  I love that!  Next week will be even better though.  It’s my birthday workout and it will be KILLER!!  Why do I like this picture?

This was a tough workout.  I felt so loved by my friends (:  

December is a hard month to follow the diet and exercise routine.  I usually give up through the whole month.  This year, I’m determined to stay on track!  I’ve realized I’m an ALL or NOTHING person when it comes to eating sweets.  I do better with giving myself treat days instead of small treats every day.  I have given myself extra days for December since it is MY BIRTHDAY month too!!!  SOOOOOOO, I’ll take the 20th, 24th, 25th, and the 31st off.  (:  YUMMY!!  I’m conjuring up several awesome NEW YEAR’S goals that I’ll post soon.  I WILL make up for all those days in January!!  Happy Holidays!  Enjoy friends, family, food, and exercise!!!

My little first born is not so little anymore.  The day has come that I never thought would arrive.  I am the MOM of a giant CHILD!  Enjoy the day!  Work Hard ALWAYS *
