After thoroughly enjoying my weekend – more cookies and mulled wine, yeah – it’s finally time to write about last month’s workouts, and especially the first two weeks of the Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge.
November was quite a good month for me. After slacking a little (ahem, a lot), I made it to two Pilates classes, ran 22 miles, biked 11 miles, and tried Racketball (or Squash?) for the very first time! I also walked a lot, and ate lots of fruit and vegetables.
During the past few months I’ve been struggling with my workout motivation, but I think I’ve finally found it again. Joining the HBBC has helped me a lot! This challenge has also taught me, that it doesn’t matter what you do, how long or how fast you go. Just move!
I’ve also noticed that I really enjoy indoor biking. Riding the stationary bike at my gym is much more fun than running on the treadmill. So if I’m really not in the mood to pound the belt, I hop on the bike instead. Sweat is sweat, after all.
These are my goals for December:
- Workout 3-4 times per week. Running, biking, Pilates, whatever!
- Enjoy seasonal treats (cookies, lebkuchen, mulled wine) in moderation, while also eating lots of fruit and veggies (7 servings per day).
- Ok, I give up. I still only get 6 hours per night, but I balance it off with sleeping in and taking several naps on the weekends.
- Cookies! That’s all I have to say. Recipes will follow.
Let’s enjoy December to the fullest!
