A recap of my weekly workouts from the previous week.
Happy Monday and happy short week!! Aren’t short work weeks the absolute best? There is just something about knowing that you have to work less than normal that makes you giddy like a child. At least for me.
With the holidays coming up, it’s easy to get busy. But let’s not forget about fitness! While it’s okay to take a break here and there, sometimes those short breaks can turn into weeks when we have so many plans with friends and family. And around this time of year, the plans usually revolve around drinking and eating.
Make sure you are still making time to do the things that keep you happy and on track – like working out, doing yoga, making a green smoothie, or even taking the dog for a walk. Those little things will add up over the course of the next few weeks and you won’t feel like you ruined all your hard work this year.
This week I’m making it a priority to get to the gym Monday-Wednesday and then am doing the Turkey Trot here in Austin on Thursday. I didn’t workout at all this weekend so I’m looking forward to some solid workouts leading up to turkey day. And then I will feast 🙂
