Black Friday Excitement

Yesterday, we spent the entire day shopping for Christmas presents. That meant no workout, but hours and hours on our feet. This week feels so out-of-the ordinary for me with 3 rest days. After training hard for months, I think my body appreciates the extra recuperation, and my heart & soul love the family time, but I’m itching to get back to a normal training pattern.

Just as I settle back into routine at home though, it’ll be time to move Β — only 3 weeks until the big day! Yesterday, we signed our lease, and I got to have another look at the workout center at our apartment complex (it is right outside of our apartment!): 2 stationary bikes, 1 elliptical, 1 treadmill, and a one very versatile weight machine. At the very least, it will be an excellent supplement to the gym and perhaps even replace the need for a gym membership (to save money). We’ll just have to see. I am a little nervous to see how the move and our new life there affects my eating and fitness habits; I do, however, feel like I am mentally prepared for it and will stay strong/motivated and develop a new great routine there. Especially with your blogging support!

So, why was black friday so exciting? Is it that I am a shopaholic? Well, kinda… I’m a recovering shopaholic. Is it because I’m an exercise-a-holic? Yup! How is that you ask? Virtually all of the Christmas present I picked out from my parents (and some that I got for them!) at least somehow relate to a fit lifestyle. But I don’t think I should reveal them just yet… it isn’t Christmas yet, after all. πŸ™‚

Something else exciting happened yesterday: 2011 figure Olympia champ Nicole Wilkins answered one of my questions in her weekly Q&A video. Check it out here. My question is the first one. It’s my minuscule claim to fame! πŸ™‚

I hope you had a happy, stress-free Black Friday! Are you enjoying the Christmas lights that are going up? I know I am!
