For challenges and streaks and all sorts of other healthy attempts at not gaining holiday weight.
Well, guess what?! I am in!!!
I figured it was essential since I am still losing the weight I gained last Christmas. #fail Truth be told I struggle around the holidays, in more ways that one and this year I am hoping to celebrate these occasions without focusing on food. That tends to be the family focus and it is hard to seperate yourself from the pack.
So, my plans?!
- Also, Aaron Scheer (exercise hater) has agreed to do 60 days of Insanity with me. He hates running, but I still won't give up the dream of us working out together. Babe, it is on the blog... so it has got to happen now. I have no clue when we're starting since I'm borrowing the series for a friend, but you best believe that I'll be keeping you posted.
- Last, but certainly not least... the Runner's World Holiday Run Streak 2012! If you aren't familiar, you pledge to run at least ONE mile everyday from Thanksgiving to New Year's Day. I am really doing this because I flaked out last year in less than two weeks. Lame! I think I was doing too many one-milers so I dropped out feeling like a failure. Well, one mile is better than no mile. So, I'm easing up on myself and getting rid of the all or none crapitude.
What are you doing to stay in shape over the holidays? See above. Oh, I am also still focusing on plant-based diet.
What is your one holiday weakness? Yeah, sweets and stuffing. Damn them both!
