Happy Merry Christmas Eve!!! I can finally say WHEW!!! I have been burning both ends of the candle. I love this time of year. For me, it’s a time of reflection. So much has happened this year, ups and downs, wonderful family friends, running Boston (I can’t believe I did that), and many more! I also love to wipe the slate clean and start a new year! Since I’m so far behind on my blogging, I’ll organize my thoughts a little!! 3 topics:
- Updated photos of the last few weeks.
- My inspiring sister and her 18 week streak.
- The unveiling of my 2015 fitness goals that I ALWAYS keep (: Exciting stuff, I know!
First off, birthday photos. I always go a little crazy with my birthday plans. This year, we had a fun friend lunch, stayed in Huntsville with friends (I wish we could of stayed longer), RAN in freshly falling snow on my birthday morning! Did some Christmas shopping (not fun), had dinner and saw the lights on Temple Square. AND…my friends planned another birthday run this morning!!! I’m in need of a nap…zzzz.
Next, a few photos from the annual Family Christmas party. My little cow and Joseph. The dwindling nativity scene. The kids are getting too old!
O.K. On to #2!! My cute sister in Connecticut. I miss her. I talked with her on the phone the other day and she told me all about her fitness success! When she was visiting this summer we discussed exercise and I suggested T25.
I’ve never done these workouts. I know they are part of the Beachbody workouts and P90X. I knew they were short and intense. She didn’t want a gym and she doesn’t have a lot of time as a Mom of 3 young children. This has been the perfect gem for her! She told me she has not missed a workout in 18 weeks!! She has more energy and doesn’t get as winded going up stairs or playing with her kids. She’s even confessed to flexing in the mirror. I’m so proud of her. She’s never been a crazy workout fanatic like me but she’s wanted something. Here we are in April after the Boston marathon!
She said the first two weeks were the hardest and then she just didn’t want to miss after that! I’m going to be thinking of her as I tackle my 2015 goals of fitness! Which leads me to my grand list!! I have ONE main goal that I will keep all year and then 6 smaller goals.
I think it’s easier and more effective to have smaller and shorter goals. I’ll keep you updated. All I have to worry about for the first two months is total healthy clean eating with one day off a month. Can’t wait!! Well, I need to go make some rolls and possibly close my eyes for an hour. We’ll see. So happy and grateful for this time of year! My family, friends, and my love of the gospel of Jesus Christ! Have a wonderful Christmas!!
