Holidays & Cheat Days...


Its inevitable!

The first day, you can turn down the sweet detectibles that punctuate the holidays.


But after a while, you give in.
Now one has two choices:
1. Totally give up and ignore the fitness goals you'd set beforehand...


2. Have a bit of indulgence, but sweat it out later in the gym...

Right now, I'm somewhere in the middle. I gifted myself two days of nothingness for Christmas.

So since I think of working out as work, I don't generally do so when I'm off.


But after splurging most of the holiday season, I have still been working out on most mornings before work. I WANT to say I will sentence myself to Insanity for the next month to make up for my indiscretions and to carve out those areas on my body that I wish to tone up for my trip in February.


I am happy to say that I am 5 pounds lighter than when I started and can tell it in my clothes.

There are some areas that I still want to work on, but that will come with time.


To keep myself honest, I may still do weekly reports...The Good, Bad, & Ugly of life-long fitness...un-huh!

  1. Love the flats!! That blazer is awesome! The colors in this outfit really pop too!

    The holidays are such a crazy time, and I chose to not stress myself out about them. I ate what I felt was appropriate (which was a little more than I should have), and worked out on my normal schedule. I will now go back to my decreased portions and no juice or pop lifestyle. And I have chosen to NOT weigh myself until mid January.

    Keep up the great work!!
