12 Days of Christmas

12 Days til Christmas!! To combat all this merriment and the effects it is having on my thighs, I MUST workout so..... 12 Days of Christmas = 12 Days of Workouts!
I haven't gotten myself to the gym in a long while, but I don't think 4 days of running is cutting it these days, so I forced myself to go to the gym after work tonight. As usual it was hard to get myself there, but once I was there I was happy that I went. I am going to have to step it up a notch in the workout department over these next two weeks, especially if I want to continue to enjoy all the holiday goodies without feeling guilty and without carrying around 10 extra pounds once training starts again in January.
It is the holidays. I refuse not to enjoy it by restricting my caloric intake. Instead, I rather just work out alittle bit more and alittle bit harder. Afterall, it only comes but once a year.

Speaking of goodies, once again I am learning to bake so many yummy things from the different blogs I have been reading over the last few months. They are all especially interesting during this time of year. Last night I made Grandma's Molasses Cookies courtesy of Framed Cooks.
They were yummy especially with a mug of Hot Chocolate!!!

I am off to bed before I eat more cookies so that I can wake up early to meet a friend for a good run in the morning to start off Day 2 of the 12 days of Christmas!!

Tonight's workout:
30m min spin
30 min elliptical
15 minutes core/ab work
