Early week workouts & it's time for holiday movies!!

Hi guys!  Did you enter my BIG Vitalicious giveaway yet?  Remember, it's open to U.S. residents only and you can enter until Thursday night at midnight (EST)!

Monday was a busy day (you know Mondays!) so I waited to do my workout until about 7:00pm.  Ugh, right?  I knew I didn't want to do anything cardio heavy and I found a GREAT, new Bender workout, Standing Buns and Thigh Slimming 15 minute workout.  

It was a nice change with no cardio - I just wasn't in the mood - but boy did this target those legs...outer thigh, inner thigh, butt, quads - all were burning at one point or another during the workout!  And it was body weight which makes it an anywhere, anytime workout! {Love that!}

By the time I cooled down and decided to eat dinner I wasn't that hungry.  So I happily had cereal - I love cereal - and sometimes you just need a bowl (or 3!  What?? They were small!).  Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds + skim milk + sliced almonds + handful of granola!  So yum!! {I'm making myself hungry just writing it!}

Then I woke up Tuesday and took the little guy on a run!  I wanted Tuesday's WOD to be a quick run so I figured doing it early (and just getting it over with!) was my best bet!  It was hot {not trying to rub it in...it just really was hot! lol}


2 miles in under 20 minutes.....pushing a 30+ lb kid...I think I did pretty darn good!  This was my sweaty self after a little cool down:



Not sure if you can see it, but I was dripping!  And I have no makeup on!  Oy! lol

So, how is it already mid-December??  It's no secret that I love holidays (remember the endless posts about Halloween??)!  There are a few different aspects about them that I love....festive decorations, the food, the family time....and the tv!  There are some GREAT holiday movies that have already started playing!

And it's all about ABC Family's 25 Days of Christmas!

  • Fred Clause
  • The Santa Clause
  • A handful of made-for-tv movies (that I can't wait to watch!)

It's just a festive good time!! Check out the calendar!
