30 DOT & HBBC Update

Day Twenty-Seven: fun afternoon with the girls

Saturday afternoon, my sisters, mom, and I spent a couple hours using our creative juices. This was part of my youngest sister's birthday present. We went to Creative Clay in Bismarck, picked out a ceramic piece, and painted it. It was so much fun. Can't wait to see what they look like once they have been fired and finished by next weekend! Afterwards, we went to grab a cold beverage and chips and salsa from one of our favorite mexican restaurants. It was a great way to spend time with the girls! I have the best sisters and mom a girl could ask for.

Day Twenty-Eight: Long weekends

Having a 5-day long weekend this time of year is wonderful. We are just finishing up our first trimester and the kiddos were extremely restless and ready for the long weekend last Tuesday. It was nice to be able to go home and visit with friends and family.

Day Twenty-Nine:

What is a better way to do your Christmas shopping then from the comfort of your couch?! I have been looking around on quite a bit lately and think I will be doing most of my Christmas shopping there. It's so easy and if you spend more than $25 you get free shipping! Score!

The annual Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge kicked off on Saturday, November 20th! Amanda over at RunToTheFinish has done a great job putting this together, and I am excited about how many people are participating. Sounds like there is going to be some wonderful prizes too!

Looking back, this past week couldn't have been more challenging, but that's the point right? Finding a healthy balance between working out, eating right, and busting your bootie?!

Let's take a look at the week:

Saturday, Nov. 20: 7 pts
Bike 21.6 mi
SSC - 10 min

Sunday, Nov. 21: 4 pts
Run 3.2 mi
SSC - 25 min

Monday, Nov. 22: 3 pts
1 hour of shoveling :) - I was so sore afterwards

Tuesday, Nov. 23: 0 pts
REST/Work/Travel Day

Wednesday, Nov. 24: 0 pts
baking and prepping for Thanksgiving dinner

Thursday, Nov. 25: 1 pt
REST - Turkey Day - got 7 fruits and veggies

Friday, Nov. 26: 4 pts
Run 3.5 miles
SSC - 25 min

Overall, been struggling with the 7 servings of fruits and vegetables. I didn't plan my meals very well for Monday and Tuesday, since it was such a short week and I was trying to clean out my fridge before leaving town Tuesday afternoon. And, I really struggle to eat well on the weekends. There's just so much on the go that I don't think much about it ahead of time, and that doesn't work for me.

First week total: 19 pts

You're doing great!

I always thought I ate plenty of F&V but I find that I have to make such a conscious effort to get them in.
