Healthy Holidays!

Happy Holidays to everyone!
I hope y'all had a fantastic holiday weekend with loved ones, I know I did. :)

I did a lot of cooking this weekend: kielbasa and sauerkraut, bbq kielbasa ham, turkey, broccoli cheese and rice casserole, chicken curry, cocktail sauce for shrimp and a key lime mousse pie. Phew!

I ate little bits of different things, but managed to not go overboard thankfully.
I also used some of Kurt's ideas from his blog and did little spurts of exercise throughout the day. Calf raises while cooking, bicep curls while carrying dishes, played with my new Wii dance games and my brother's new Xbox Kinnect. The Kinnect is pretty awesome and I fell in love with the Kinnect Adventures Rallyball game. Sooooo much fun. My brother and I also played beach volleyball, river rafting, agility courses, and bowling.

I also received my S2H Replay watch that I had mentioned in an earlier post. I've already wracked up over 60min of exercise time and got my first points (yay!) Some people think the watch is weird but I think it adds some extra motivation to my life. I can get gift cards to Best Buy, Dick's Sporting Goods, a Spa, Farmville, all kinds of crazy places. I love it!

Kurt also gave me my own headwarmer for when I run, since during the race I had to borrow one of Chelsea's. (Another very exciting gift!) I also received a lot of candles (I have a passion for candles and scarves lol), a really cool infinity reflections candle holder, Wii exercise dance games and lots of healthy foods (pistachios, soy protein, hummus, etc). All in all, a fantastic holiday!

Leave a comment and let me know how your holidays went and what cool presents you received!

As far as fitness related gifts, I got a pair of running tights which will be key when the temperature drops again. I also got a new set of cutting boards and linens for the kitchen; more reason to get in there and whip up some awesome meals!
