The holidays are coming!

I feel like I am one big ball of stress lately.  As a matter of fact, I have been trying to write this post for over a week.  The girls are both in Girl Scouts and Cheerleading.  I am leading one troop.  Work is stressful.  Home is stressful.  Now, the holidays are right around the corner.  Oh, and I have a girls week end coming up too (before T-day).  I love the food Thanksgiving and Girls Week end bring. 

The girls week end is not stressful - it is quite the opposite.  It just maybe the distraction I need from all of this choas.  Girl time, yummy food and wine.  I am sure that will be a post in itself.  I love the memories my girls from college and I have made getting together annually.  Oh, and the reminicing about the good ole days....

In our WW meeting this week we were challenged to make a challenge for ourselves each week to help us lose weight prior to T-day.  It could be anything as long as it fits into the goals of getting healthier.  My challenge to myself was to try a new strength training work out.  Ouch I hurt today.  I found an arm work out on pinterest and let's just say, I thought I was doing a good job of working my shoulders...but my delts do not agree. 

Over the next 8 weeks and the 8 weeks after that, I am going to challenge myself to keep challenging myself to become more physically fit and lose more fat!

One random thing: I read in a Shape magazine - Pinnersice - when you spend more time pinning exercises on pinterest than doing the actual exercises.  I do not do this, but the above strength training work out I posted, I found on Pinterest.
