Menu and Exercise Schedule 12/22

This week is a big week for me, not only because it is Christmas but it also marks 8 years since I was blessed with the most amazing boy.  On December 24, 2006 at 10:06 am, my son was born  6lbs 9 ozs, 18 inches long  and my life has not been the same.  Christmas eve was my favorite day of the year growing up in Jamaica.  Christmas eve meant grand-market night; it was a night to party, shop and welcome Christmas. Christmas was a quiet day spent at church and having dinner with the family.  That's why this week is big for me.

Anyway, because of all I said earlier I will deviate from my normal exercise and menu schedule for this week and more likely than not next week will suffer the same faith.


Monday- 45 minutes of Zumba
Tuesday- 30 minutes high intensity cardio and 30 minute yoga
Wednesday- (Happy Birthday to my baby boy) 45 minutes biggest loser workout before my house wakes up
Thursday- Merry Christmas (there will be no rest but also no exercise)
Friday- 1 hour Pilates ( I am getting really good at this)
Saturday- 1 hour spin/cycling
Sunday- Rest day


I did a big grocery shopping excursion last weekend to last me through the craziness of Christmas and New Year's. 
  • I will make bbq baked chicken wings, pasta salad with plenty of veggies, and a red velvet cake for the birthday celebration.
  • Christmas dinner will go something like this; lamb chops, salmon, baked chicken, rice, salad , dessert, and a few spirits thrown in (alcohol consumption)
  • The days following Christmas will consist of leftovers from both the birthday party and Christmas.
As you can see I need to be on my exercise game because the diet and portion control normally get left at the door during this week.

Hope you all have a very Merry and safe Christmas.

Live Your Best Life

What on Earth is meant by “living your best life”, and how do we achieve it? Why does it seem like so many people other than us are living...
