I’m going to go out on a limb and say the holidays are upon us…as in people have started to crowd the malls doing their shopping, the stores have their sales and advertisements plastered everywhere, the carols are playing on the radio and holiday parties are taking place.
Well, I can also tell you I can always tell the holidays are here because the gyms aren’t as full as they usually are. Or as full as they should be. I should know, I spend about 99% of my time in a gym of some sort everyday. It’s
pathetic awesome! I hear from friends and co-workers that clients are canceling or just not showing up for their personal training sessions. THAT’s how I know the holidays are here.
So here’s a quick little boost to those of you who are suffocating in the hustle and bustle of the holidays and you can’t quite seem to fit your workout in:
This has been circulating around the internet lately and I thought it was appropriate for this time of year for all of us.
As for my weekend challenge, and in line with the holiday spirit, I’ll be attending my friend and former client Lina’s Dessert Party. Yes that’s right a party with JUST DESSERTS. All homemade as far as I know? And all very delicious.
I’ve searched and searched my nutrition plan from my coach and lo and behold I don’t see desserts listed. Hmmm…
Well, looks like I need a plan. Remember my Holiday Pledge? I’m sure there’s a way to copy my old post in here but I am not savvy enough to figure that out so here’s the picture again:
Notice #4. I will not be anti-social. I will attend this party because it’s been awhile since I’ve seen my friend Lina and her husband Jeff and we have a lot to catch up on. I’m treating the desserts like part of the background. They’ll be there but almost like I’m at a museum. I can look but not touch. Ha! I will most likely
cheat indulge in a couple of the smaller desserts without going absolutely nuts. I’m also planning on eating just like my plan suggests with nothing changing. Most importantly I’ll be arriving on a full stomach. There will not be an entrée in sight (hence the point of coming after dinner anyways) so I feel as long as I have eaten my protein beforehand. I should be okay.
This will be my first real challenge since taking on this goal. I’ll be happy to post the outcome on Sunday morning! 🙂
Also, I am definitely posting progress pics right before Christmas. I can finally see a difference from October to now in pictures and I’m really jazzed to show them to everyone believe it or not!
Happy Weekend Everyone!
