courtniemarie and the nine holiday parties


CourtnieMarie

Recommended Posts

I think I need to do a challenge. So I am!

 

I fell out of a lot of healthy habits I had been building earlier this year (see: daily mobility; movement 7 days/week; etc.). I still eat pretty paleo during the work week but I also let a lot of junk through for Halloween and Thanksgiving. I has excuses but those are silly and what I really need to do is try to slowly build back up again and focus on the future. I’ve got a lot going on this month as I’m sure many people do…

 

December activities:

Wed. 12/7/16 – Xmas supper club with friends

Sat. 12/10/16 – Ugly Sweater 5K

Sun. 12/11/16 – SO’s extended family Xmas party

Fri. 12/16/16 – Friends Xmas (and a birthday) party

Sat. 12/17/16 – Friend’s family Xmas party

Sat. 12/24/16 – Dad’s family Xmas party

Sun. 12/25/16 – SO’s family Xmas gathering and Mom’s family Xmas gathering

Sat. 12/31/16 – NYE partayyy

 

Goal 1. Weights

  • 10 weight-lifting sessions. I will be aiming for 3/week but don’t want to dive back in too strongly and get burnt.

 

Goal 2. Cardio

  • 10 cardio sessions. GASP. Welp, I’ve gained about 17 lbs over the past year or so and feel like I need some endurance in my life. Plus I like to do 5Ks and OCRs.

 

Goal 3. Yoga

  • 4 yoga sessions.

 

Goal 4. Eat

  • At home. All of the parties I’m going to this month will be homemade food except one. I really should not need to be eating at a restaurant (or take out) at all this challenge. I will allow myself two visits to a restaurant and two coffees that aren’t plain nut milk lattes. Extra pride points if I don’t use those visits!

It will be nice to see daylight in January for a change.  The sled dogs will also enjoy the break.

I might (will) need a cleanse by this time next week. I'll either live vicariously through you or so some kind of no dessert or junk foods thing between then and Christmas.

haha it's really not, but very un-warrior like. my coworkers did one about 3.5 months ago and I joined in bc it was the height of summer bbq season and i was eating all the things. okay really every season there's a good excuse for me to eat all the things, let's not blame summer here. anyway, i did well and some good side effects come with a short juice cleanse - not eating candy or other goodies at work, not having to cook dinner, just pressing reset on the inner workings of the bod. i've read a lot of criticism on juicing so i know that long-term it would not be wise for me. most of the criticism is for homemade juicing where you see people making sugary juices for longer than 5 days and only consuming that so your blood sugar and metabolism get all whack. but a good 3day in the middle of the week cleanse worked for me and i figured between tday and xmas would be a good time to rinse out.

honestly it's super easy to get in a 1-3 day cleanse! i like the ease of ordering from a juicery (and they'll deliver to you or your work!). given all of the parties i'm going to this month it probably wouldn't be a bad idea to do a 1 day cleanse every week... hm.

I really feel like I need a 1-2 cleanse to help get the salt bloat out. For medical reasons I couldn't do anything longer. But cleansing the system of salt sounds glorious. Probably after I get back from our trip next week Wednesday. Do you order online or is it a local place? Send me a message with the info if it is a national company?

unfortunately i've only done local places! here and here. but i've heard good things about blueprint ! i was surprised at how many local juiceries i had near me though so might want to check that out first. the one we're doing now gave us all our juices in mason jars that we get to keep. I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THAT

4 planks @ 75s

boat pose @ 60s

wall sit @ 60s

lunges @ 60s each

 

juice juice juice juice. and coffee. You get 5 juices and a cashew milk per day. but I drink my coffee with coconut milk to keep my cals above 1200. I really do love juice. they were all delicious. their green one was a lot more sour (lemon-y) then others I’ve tried but I like sour citrus flavor. And the cashew milk was friggen heavenly.

 

also i am now officially sick with sore throat/sinusy stuff. woooooooo
