Thanksgiving weekend really got the best of me.
I ate whatever I wanted and didn't work out as hard as I had originally planned, but you know what?
I think I needed it.
I needed the extra sleep, just like my little Olive.
Thursday we feasted on mimosas, prime rib, turkey, stuffing, potatoes, cracker and cheese... you name it... we ate it.
Friday was an epic Black Friday shopping extravaganza. I desperately needed new clothes for work, so we ventured out into the madness from 6am to about 2:00 pm. Then we napped and hung out on the couch for the rest of the evening, ditching all plans for a workout. Shopping was my cardio that day. HAHA
And then Saturday rolled around, and it was time for my favorite class to dread, BOOTCAMP.
And now it's MONDAY, and I've already gotten two workouts in the books. I got the workout bug last night again to amp up my workouts and start eating clean again. I've been pretty lax about my lifestyle lately, and it's beginning to show. I'm ready to put the work in again and start shedding some of this holiday fluff.
That being said, I've come up with a new peppermint chocolate protein shake recipe, along with a healthy thai carrot ginger soup recipe that I get to try out tonight. (It's in the crock pot as we speak! I can't wait to see how it turns out!!)
