I’m definitely much more “relaxed” over the holidays.
As it should be! If a workout gets skipped, because I’m busy visiting friends and family that’s the kind of trade off I’m ok with. And if I eat some extra sugar on Christmas… well Aunt Dee’s brownies were totally worth it.
But the fact is, I feel best when I’m eating healthy and exercising.
So it’s all about balance
My mom and I took a trip to Trader Joe’s and stocked up on some of my favorites, so I’d have things to munch on. And she also picked up Arnold Whole Wheat Mini Sandwich thins, which were new-to-me.
I’ve had this the past couple of days:
To make this delicious lunch:
Arnold whole wheat mini + Trader Joe’s garlic hummus + Trader Joe’s chopped veggies + Everything Pretzel Slims
My blog is also having quite a Christmas. Presents included:
- A light box (for better pictures!)
- A new Jillian Michael’s DVD (review to come)
- Kitchen gadgets (berry saver, produce keeper, collapsable measuring cups)
- A Kindle Fire (so I’ll be reading blogs wherever there is wifi!)
Now I’m off to go to the gym with Alexa. (Probably a good idea, since the Northstar burger is to be consumed tonight.)
