I hope that you all enjoyed your holidays. I’m sure we can all admit to some overindulging, but hopefully it was done in a way that made you feel happy, not ill.
I got some great workout gifts from my family that I’m excited about. My daughter’s and son-in-law gave me a great fitness book that I know will give me some great tips and new ideas to keep me motivated. They also gave me a new Spinning Touring tape to use with my Spinning bike here at the house. I did it this morning before the masses got up and it was great! Touring the Colorado Rockies, these guys are hard core. It’s a very different tape in every way from the other one I have so now I can mix it up.
My husband gave me the P90X DVD series. It is hardcore, but I’m excited to give it a try. I’ll let you know how I do. I’m going to try the nutrition recommendations in the tapes so that I can give the program it’s best chance at success. I’m visiting my best friends in Florida in January, and want to look good in my suit. The program seems very nutritionally sound ( nothing crazy which you all know I really don’t like…only cabbage…only sports bars…no carbs…). I loved that my husband thought about what gift that I would like.
My kids took the time to pick me really special gifts that touched my heart. I really love all of them.
I hope your holidays made you feel happy, and your time with the ones you love brought you peace.
