I had a wonderful Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with Neal and my family but it’s time to get back on track. Last night I went to bed really early with the goal of getting some great sleep. After waking up I started the day off with cup of water and a cup of coffee.
I also busted out the juicer and made myself some fresh juice.
I juiced 2 granny smith apples, 2 oranges, 2 carrots, and a 1 inch piece of ginger. It was a tasty and refreshing drink.
I enjoyed my drinks while reading my new book, The Happiness Project. I’ve heard so many great things about this book and was thrilled to have gotten it from my parents yesterday.
I also started a the 14 day Trader Joe’s Complete Body Cleanse today. I did this cleanse last January and brought it with me to Texas as I knew I’d want/need a post holiday cleanse.
Over the 14 days you take a combination of these three pills both in the morning and before bed.
I felt great after using this cleanse last year and feel great about doing it again this year.
A few hours later I headed to the gym with my Mom. Armed with my new book, I jumped on the elliptical for a 30 minutes workout.
I honestly wasn’t feeling too great about my workout when I started, but I ended it feeling much better.
I knocked out 30 minutes and burned 397 calories according to the elliptical.
After my cardio workout I busted out a few kettlebell exercises.
Getting to the gym with my Mom was just what I needed.
As my Dad is from England, we are celebrating Boxing Day today. I plan to spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing, cleaning up from Christmas, cooking with my Mom, and playing games.
As tonight’s dinner will be a similar to a Thanksgiving dinner, my goal is to use portion control and to limit my carbs.
Restarting after Christmas was really important to me and I’m glad I didn’t wait until January 1. If you’re feeling a little blah you can restart today!! I think a lot of us think “oh well, I’ll restart in 2013″… but why have 6 more days of blahs?
