Christmas Snapshots… Because I’m Lazy

Posted: December 27, 2011 in Uncategorized

I feel like the last few days have just… flown by. It’s been a little nutty.

But in a good way. For once my holidays weren’t spent jamming giant easels onto planes, debating on 7 or 18 pairs of shoes to pack, watching the weather network constantly to be sure my flights wouldn’t be delayed or cancelled.

The difference this year? … I’m in prep. (as if you hadn’t noticed)

I did decide NOT to go to the gym christmas day. My gym was open from 11-3 and I could have gone… but I chose to nap. A 4:30 wakeup call for SANTA and a long day with the family drained me. I made good choices food wise but did not follow my meal plan 100% (which was approved by the coach).

I woke up Boxing Day (a holiday on the east coast) feeling a bit meh. I drank very little water, a boatload of candy cane coffee and a glass of wine Christmas day, so that coupled with the odd food left me feeling bloaty and blah, but I hit the gym and woke up today feeling completely normal. A bit puffy, but not massive and gross like OCD Becca was worried about.

I’m sure the big details will come out gradually, but for now, my Christmas in photos.

First… Despite grim predictions, we DID have a white Christmas.

Christmas Day dinner… um yeah, mega fail on the whole “turkey aspect” of dinner. But come on, we’ve all seen the pictures of turkeys, I’ve got the good stuff. My latest creation.

And there you have it. One basic, lazy ass Christmas recap.

Prep is 100% back on, feeling great, getting stronger (thanks to pie) and kicking butt. Team email went out tonight and we’ve got until January 7th to “work off the candy canes”  and take progress pictures. I’m a-ok with that little break. Big changes… big changes.

Picking up my new kicks tomorrow! Stay tuned for me preaching about how awesome they are and how non-painful my hip is in a week!

… a girl can dream at least!

  2. I think it’s totally okay to live a balanced life and enjoy the holidays!! It looks like you enjoyed them in a healthy way :] I always make my own food for family events..this year I made roasted veggies and a Quinoa Salad – everyone liked this “healthy” food & I loved that everyone enjoyed it so much ;] eating clean can be so tasty! GOOD LUCK with prep! I have a show coming up in March so I’m on that clean eating train with you :] like always!
