Baby it’s Cold Outside

Or at least it should be. I feel like here on the eastcoast global warming has robbed our chances for snow. My poor daughter said to me, Mommy I keep praying for snow! Me too love me too. But, I digress. So let me get to the reason for this post; Mamavation Monday!

Scale: Honestly, I haven’t weighed myself since the end of the 2 week challenge. The new challenge starts January 9th and I’m excited! You can sign up to do it with me here

Exercise: I went to the gym and worked out at home almost everyday.

Food: I wasn’t horrible for Christmas. I had some yummy homemade peanut butter fudge that I made with my bestie and also half a cupcake for Jesus’ birthday. But I said no to sugar cookies and other not worth it desserts.

Non Scale Victories: My jeans are getting baggy. Which is great but I’m still in between sizes so I’m hoping to get a full size smaller soon so I don’t look like a wannabe gangsta in my clothes lol

This weeks blogging carnival question: What is your #1 tip for adjusting your workouts to winter conditions?

My tip is to go to the gym and find a class or machine that you really love. If that isn’t an option and you have a gaming system use your workout games to stay active. Bottom line is: keep moving, and do something to make you sweat everyday. I even play the Zumba Fitness Radio on Pandora and shake it while I’m cooking ;)

Happy New Years everyone!

    I thought that we were snow deprived too until today! It has snowed about a half inch where I live in Kentucky.

    And I too hadn’t done much since the last 2 week challenge, but started p90x challenge today, so I’m excited to see where that takes me!

    have a great year and a great week

      I hope some of that snow comes this way!

      Good luck with your p90x, I’ve heard it’s hard but it works :)

      Thanks for stopping by have a great week!

    Oooh dancing while you’re cooking is a good idea! It’s hard not to move when you’ve got the right music playing in your ears!

    Exactly! My DD laughs at me because “mommy you don’t dance when you’re cooking!” lol

  4. No one in my household allows me to dance since I am so so terrible at it. LOL I’m in eastern WA and we are kind of wondering where the winter is too. Not that I am complaining too much. :)

    Dancing with my iPhone, Pandora, and my noise cancelling headphones always make dinner time less dis-functional.
    We have not had a need for an adjustment due to weather here in TN either, and yet I am still not getting out there. Oh! Well!
