Merry Christmas Eve to all my dear readers!
Despite having a sinus infection (Yuck, by the way!), after I got up this morning and had my breakfast and visited with my parents a little, I actually worked out – for about an hour and 15 minutes. I was so proud of myself. I felt like crap, but after I worked out, I actually felt a little better. I could barely breathe, but I think all the sweating I did helped to get the infection out of my body. Or at least that’s what it felt like anyway.
I am off this week on my exercises because of my work schedule. I typically work out Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, but this week, I had to do it on Tuesday, today (Thursday) and then on Saturday. I am hoping to get back to my normal schedule next week, but we’ll have to see what happens. Work and the holidays kind of interfered, but at least I still did it!
So, why am I happy? Besides working out, it’s because my husband and I are hosting Christmas Eve at our house and so I am in charge of the meal! I love when I am in charge because then I can make things my way, which tends to be on the healthy side. So, what’s for dinner tonight?
We are having ham, riced potatoes (there will be gravy for those who eat it), green beans, corn, Jell-O (sugar free) with Cool Whip (fat free) and in honor of my in-laws (who both recently passed away), my husband is trying his hand at making Lutefisk and my brother-in-law is going to try and make Swedish meatballs. And, I do have a tray of goodies – it is Christmas after all.
I think we are going to have a great evening and a wonderful day tomorrow!
Again, I wish everyone a very happy and blessed Christmas. May all your Christmas wishes come true!
