So, I hope you all had an unbelievable Christmas. I am just now catching up with everyone so I'm sure to read about it soon! I absolutely LOVE Christmas!! Not for the presents, not for the food, but for my family. I'm the oldest of 6 girls (my very best friends) and our lives are SO busy we can rarely connect all together. Christmas is the ONE time a year that we can just lay on my parent's living room floor and yap about whatever comes to mind! This year was no exeption and I had the MOST wonderful time! My kids also had a fantastic time hanging out with their cousins, playing hockey with Grandpa, and watching movies with their lazy mom and aunties!!!! All in all-a perfect Holiday!
My son and my husband are out icefishing this morning. Yes, they sit in a little house on the middle of a lake, drill a hole through the ice with an auger and stick a pole down there in hopes of catching Walleye! The fun just never ends up here!!! Anyway, I am a huge supporter of this as I LOVE fish, especially Walleye( a very mild white fish -TDF)! It is like $13 a pound or something in the grocery store. Buying it in the grocery store is SO much more expensive than catching it yourself say the men around here.......Somehow boys fail to factor in the cost of the ice house, rods, ATV to pull the ice house, bait, etc. Ha-I love to give Joe a hard time but then again Boston wasn't the cheapest trip.....
Tonight I'm having 30 people over for a Christmas party. This sounded like such a great idea at the time and now it just sounds like A LOT of work! I'm already full and I have like zero desire to clean my bathrooms right now! I have a small boy with bad aim...It is not optional to clean these.....I will pull this off and the party will be a blast.
To the running....I just completed week one of my 10 mile training plan. Sometimes I'm a little hard on myself and beat myself up about not getting everything done exactly how I planned-actually most of the time....This week I'm patting myself on the back and officially calling myself a ROCKSTAR! I was very busy and I had to make a couple of tweeks with Christmas and time constraints but I did it and I'm actually pretty darn proud of myself!
Total miles-61. I completed every run and every workout I had planned for the week and it totally made my off day on Christmas SO enjoyable! I get such a great sense of satisfaction from making things work sometimes and it really is worth the hour less of sleep or the trips to work with soaking wet hair and no makeup!! It's also worth the freedom to eat a whole bunch of junk on Christmas day and not have a panic attack as a result!!
Hope you are all having a great Holiday season. I was going to leave you with a picture but once again my INTERNET is being a royal PITA!!! Libby will have to show you her latest pose in my next post! Later
