It’s Christmas week which means things get busy

It’s been really busy during this holiday season.  I feel like we’re in a constant moving state.  Last night, Willie said he missed meal prepping!  Isn’t that kind of funny?  He told me so I immediately wanted to spend some time meal prepping when we got home.

Woke up this morning and totally forgot I made chili in the crockpot! Everyone should have a crockpot and a rice cooker. Whats your favorite cooking gadget? #fitfluential #healthyeats #eatinghealthy
I made some ground chicken chili in the crockpot last night. I totally forgot about it until I woke up this morning to go to gym. Those crockpots are amazing things. I think everyone should have one. I think I’m going to start making more stuff in the crock pot so that I can freeze them for times when we don’t have tim full on meal prep.  So it looks like we’re going to be eating a lot of chili this week.  But Christmas is on the horizon so there will be lots of different foods to eat too.

The struggle was real this morning on the #run. But I ran and did a leg workout! How are you getting active today? #ffcheckin #fitfluential

Saturday morning I went for my first run since the double header weekend.  It was a struggle.  I know the pace doesn’t show the struggle but it was a struggle to get things going.  On the upside, I found a new running route which made me happy.  It was good to get out there to run again. I’m ready to get back into the full swing of things.

This is what $35 gets you! #pwatbeaumont #crafty #painting
Saturday night I went painting. I really don’t like wasting money on these things because I’m not good at it. It’s supposed to be an ornament! It didn’t turn out as well as I would have hoped. It was a good time, minus the pepper spray incident that happened in the middle of the class.

#Ad Did Group Power in @asicsamerica GEL-Fit Sana this morning! I'm loving these training shoes. #FITwithAsics #fitfluential
This morning I got up to go to Group Power! I’m so glad that I did. I miss doing my strength training and I’m happy to get stronger. Willie suggests that I do another runner specific strength training plan which worked for him. I might try it out too.

I’ve been kind of lazy with my blogging lately and I do greatly apologize for that.  I’ve been in a funk.  I had a lot of down time last week which obviously doesn’t work for me.  I just prefer to be busy because I feel like I can manage my time better.  This week on the blog, I plan on sharing some lightened up holiday treats!  I hope you look forward to reading it!

What are your plans for the holidays?
