Hi loves! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. 🙂 I can’t believe another Christmas has passed! Going to do a little recap of my Christmas weekend so let’s get started!
Saturday morning I started my day with a workout:
2 mi run
10 min walk
4x 1 min sprint
2×10 chin ups
3×10 single leg push downs
2×10 tricep cable push down
2×10 cable leg kick back
3×10 cable upright row
30 sec static plank hold
10 knee to nose in plank each side
30 butterfly crunches
30 Russian twists
10 knee to ground
10 each side knew to opposite elbow
30 in and outs
30 eagle crunches
After my workout, I came back and ate some lunch. I talked to my best friend from school on the phone for about two hours while coloring (multi-tasking at its finest lol) then showered and got ready to head to my aunts house! Every Christmas Eve I go to my aunts house for dinner and I’ve been doing that for as long as I can remember!
Didn’t snap any pictures of the food, but I had a yummy lobster stuffing dish and salad for dinner. And two mini carrot cakes for dessert!! So tasty.
Wore this new red dress I got from Charlotte Russe to that party!
Dad and I 🙂
Sunday morning my family and I opened our presents. And of course there were some Lenny&Larry’s cookies in my stocking. 🙂
I don’t like to talk about gifts and such and everything I got, because I feel that takes away from the true meaning of the holiday.
But one thing I am super stoked about is my new Gymshark leggings. Guys- these things are so comfy. Like comfy to the point it doesn’t even feel like I’m wearing pants lol.
After opening presents, I had some oats for breakfast and a cup of coffee. I drank my coffee while writing down and coloring some bible verses in my new sketchbook. I LOVE doing this. Brings me closer to God and Jesus and helps me to relax and refocus my mind.
I went to my other aunts house for lunch and enjoyed some turkey, mashed potatoes, and corn! Then for dessert I had more coffee and 2 mini chocolate coconut bars. We went home around 3, and I came back and took a nap. (turkey makes me so sleepy haha) After my nap I took my pups for a walk with my momma then came back, ate some veggies and a bowl of cereal and watched YouTube videos. Later on in the night I sipped on kombucha, ate a snack, and watched Elf. First time watching it this year!
It was a great weekend with family, and it felt good to really just relax and unwind. Sometimes it’s really hard for me to do that, but it is SO needed for the mind, body, and soul. I have a lot to be thankful for, and this weekend just showed me that even more! I am thankful for my family, God & Jesus, my friends, and the life that recovery has given me. This weekend was full of yummy food, and I will refuse to feel guilty about it- this time comes once a year, and induling a bit will not change you or set you back in whatever goals you may have. Please please please remember that! God made cookies and cakes and pies so we can eat them, not stress about them and feel guilty over them!
Now tell me:
Favorite thing you ate this weekend?!
