I did the last 6 exercise as supersets where I would do 2 sets in a row without a rest. Shweaty! Then it was treadmill walking.
It was cold and I decided on a warm bowl of banana oats this morning.
Topped with some coconut butter and a bit of cinnamon. Yummy! I could never really give up grains completely forever. I love my oats.
It was a busy work day today. And a good day to get it all done. This week I have had a lot of schedule interruptors. We had a girl’s night out on Tuesday with my mom and sister. We got all dressed up and fancy, too! Then I met with my literacy learner for the first time this week. That was exhausting, I have to say. It is going to take time to get used to doing that. Then I got called to make another last minute soap order this week.
Phew. Not to mention the nagging headache that I have had for the last 3 days. Just won’t go away even with pain reliever. I used to get those headaches years ago and now they have returned.
Lunch today was not turkey for a change!
Shrimps! And yes, eating at the computer here. The table is full of soap as you see above.
So anyway, it is December and time for some new goals for the month. Other than just getting through this week, here is what is planned:
1. No weight gain over the holidays. I am not going to gain any weight! That means being extra diligent on most days. I will probably lower my calories a few days a week to get some wiggle room.
2. Do some no added sugar days. This will help with #1. I have been snacking on chocolate chips a lot lately and I need to get out of that habit.
3. Make a video of me playing guitar to post on the blog. Eeep! That original New Year’s Resolution made in January has come to fruition! A year of practice and now you will all get to hear it. Actually, I might do a couple videos since I have been working on a lot of short pieces.
4. Relax more. I am really a bad girl when it comes to relaxing. I was getting some tough love from John this week about that, so I am going to do it.
In the vein of relaxing, I think that is enough for goals this month 😉
I took a break today to make the lattes with the new uber machine. I am almost ready to kiss our new machine. I love the lattes that we are making!
One more thing going on this week is a garden club meeting tomorrow for lunch. I just found out my town had a little garden club that meets once a month by accident. A woman that I met very briefly a couple months ago called me the other day and invited me to their year end party to get to know everyone.
I have to say that while I am looking forward to meeting other gardeners, I am really shy in person and am quite nervous about this. It’s one thing to have a group of strangers meet, but a totally different thing to be the only one who doesn’t know anybody at a party. Awkward. Now that is social anxiety in a nutshell. I decided against taking pictures of my food at the lunch because I certainly don’t want anyone to know how weird I am!
John called dinner tonight to grab a slice of pizza. I was so hungry that I forgot to take a picture!
I had a slice and half. No weight gain this month, remember! LOL. At least we got in a nice mile walk round trip.
I do get a little relaxing tonight. John and I are booking our Disney accommodations tonight for the end of January! I cannot wait for vacation!
Question: How is your December looking?
