It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!
I spent most of the past weekend finishing up my Christmas decorations. I love my house looking so pretty and festive! Aaahh, it makes me so happy!
We also had Thanksgiving Saturday with my mom, brother and sister. I enjoyed yet another meal of yummy food and desserts(notice the plural!).
That was probably my 4th "treat" meal of the week, and I did not gain a pound. Not bragging, just showing that you CAN enjoy the holidays and good food without ruining all your hard work -IF you do it the right way. And you kick butt in the gym regularly. :)
Like one of my favorite quotes says-what matters most is what you eat between the New Year and Christmas, not what you eat between Christmas and the New Year!
My workouts have been going great lately. Haven't been really following a specific plan, but still doing an upper/lower split. I've been feeling pretty strong and just love my training now that I quit the bodybuilding split thing. I used 65lbs on 1 arm rows the other day for the first time! I'm not gonna lie, it felt pretty awesome to be lifting heavier weight than the guys beside me. ;)
I think I'm going to stop doing CrossFit for a while and just go back to doing short finishers at the end of my workouts like I was doing earlier in the year. I love CrossFit, but doing it only one time a week makes me sore for too long and interferes with my workouts into the next week. I think with CrossFit you need to either be all out CrossFit or not at all, but that's just my experience. Although I'm sure I'll miss it and still do it every now and then!
Today is leg day, and I am so excited! Squats and deadlifts, here I come!
