Day 10 & 11 Staycation - Depression, Hangover and Happy New Year! :)


I didn't post my workout from yesterday....but I did do one....45 minute intervals on the bike and then the following ab workout.

Crunches on swiss ball with 10lb weight behind my head -30 reps.
Reverse crunches - 30 reps.
Ball exchange - 30 reps.

I burned about 500 calories....and I had wanted to do another workout in the afternoon - shoulders and legs but had so much to do to get ready for the party that I didn't get to it....grrr. But I guarantee with all the cleaning, lifting and moving stuff around, I burned more calories than I normally would have...

I am a bit depressed today thinking about going back to work. But the good news is it is a short (3 day week). We are going to Russellville to help his mom set up her tv next weekend but other than that it will be very laid back...so I can continue my staycation - sort of. :) It has been so wonderful to take this time off to relax and rejuvenate. I definitely needed it!

Ate pretty bad last night with all of the snacks and appetizers and drank about three cocktails so felt pretty crappy this morning. I was very envious of Amber who was not drinking at all...although I could have made the same choice. :) Heck, I am not sure if I have even shared with you guys...we had a big party at our house last night - about 50 people. We had Texas Hold Em, Karaoke and Nintendo Wii. It was a BLAST!!! Big thanks to Amber for all the baked goods and for my girls Susan and Leanne for all their help with the prep. Bette and Leroy - you guys rock for bringing the karaoke machine and to Doon you rule for the Wii and all the shots! :)

Hoping to get a workout in later today once I feel a little better....next week its all about lunch time lifts and early am cardio + plyos and conditioning drills at night. Can't wait to get back to a schedule and get work under control. :)

Happy New Year all! Be your best no matter what....remember new year's resolutions are great but set realistic goals and make sure you plan for success!

Until next time...
