Tuesday of a holiday week doesn’t even feel like a Tuesday, does it? I like it 🙂
But I also have to focus a bit more around the holidays on getting my exercise in. Is it just me? I find I get distracted and would rather perfect the garland on my mantle than strap on my running shoes… speaking of… here is the beginning of my Christmas mantle. I am going to replace that garland with real, natural garland, and of course I need stockings… but Squeee! I love Christmas.
Luckily, Koda is usually there to remind me I need to get outside and MOVE…
and on Sunday, she had a ball because a group of us went hiking in the perfect fall weather.
(Say hello to my 5k running group!)
After the hike Sunday, I did not feel like running yesterday, so I decided it would be a perfect time to reintroduce strength training into my life. I’ve missed it lately and can’t use not having a yoga studio nearby as an excuse anymore. So, reluctantly, I came crawling back to Jillian.
Although I get somewhat bored doing videos, I made it through feeling good. My muscles weren’t even shaking and I realized I should probably have done level 2. However, last night my thighs felt whipped… and this morning? SORE. Jillian, you are amazing. I’m sorry I’ve been away for so long.
For some reason I usually don’t have much of a problem staying on track with healthy eating during the holidays, but the exercise thing sometimes falls by the wayside…
What tips do you have for staying on track with exercise during this exciting, magical time of year??
