Hot 100 Update, X-Mas Pics & other updates
Ok--so I am really behind in getting this stuff posted! LOL Better late than never, I suppose.
Here's my Hot 100 goals and how I've been doing
Exercise a minimum of five hours a week: The past two weeks have been horrific for getting any exercise done! Right around the time of the refrigerator disaster, my best friend was supposed to go into the hospital for one day to have her gall bladder out.
She suddenly disappeared and wasn't returning my calls. It was contributing to the melt down that I had, big time. Anyway, come to find out that she was rushed to the ER a few days before her surgery with acute pain in her side. She had an infected liver and other stuff going on that her small hospital couldn't deal with, so they took her by ambulance to a larger hospital where they kept her for 4-5 days. All that time, she couldn't call me. She didn't have her cell phone with her and that is the only place she has her phone numbers stored.
Anyway, all that time, I didn't know what was going on and I was freaking out and driving my husband nuts. Between that, the major snow we had (and had to shovel), the refrigerator disaster, and the normal Christmas busyness, I really sucked ass at getting anything done exercise wise.
You can count on one hand how often I've been to the gym in the past ten days or so, and the walking and other exercise hasn't been much better. All I can say is, I am confident that I can get back on track this week.
Eat Foods Rich in Omega 3's at least 3 times a week: I aced this.
Complete all three months of the ChaLEAN Extreme program: Still working on this and will post a review of the program when I am done with it.
Consume at least five fruits and veggies a day: I'm good here too.
Eat only when hungry: Well, er um, at Christmas parties and on Christmas day, I didn't do too well with this and ate too much and ATE A LOT OF CARBS-- which I am still paying for! LOL
One thing I have noticed is that I just don't feel well. It feels like I ate a jar of paste or something. I am guessing it is not being used to the carbs and fat I ate.
So it is good to be back on track -- we had salmon and butternut squash for dinner and I'll be back to my regular exercise schedule tomorrow.
Here are some pics from my holiday!

I made this apple pie with paw prints in the crust for my friend Mandy's Christmas party. She has rescued 4 dogs and has a pet sitting and dog-walking service. The pie was a big hit!
One of Mandy's dogs attired for the party. This is Minerva, "Minnie" for short.
This one is called "Olivia."
Minnie's shirt. Too cute!
This is Gizmo, aka "Gizzy." He thinks he is a Doberman. LOL I LOVE those teeth!
Anyway, just wanted to get this posted as it is so overdue! Hope you all had a great Christmas!
