Good evening. :)

I’ve been cleaning and relaxing this evening, with one of my most favorite candles burning:


And the trees lit:


With some Christmas music playing. My favorite way to relax!

I have been craving Thai food for weeks. My hubby and I used to eat it all the time – in fact we ate it on our first New Year’s Eve together. Unfortunately, someone has a habit of eating something 6 times a day everyday until they are sick of it. Hint: it’s not me.

I made my own peanut sauce w/ some whole wheat noodles and shrimp.


The year is winding down and exercise is probably one of the last things on your list, right? Just think – in 2 more weeks it is a new year, and time to start over! Wrong.

Have many other times have we made ‘resolutions’? They obviously haven’t stuck, and it’s time to change somethin’! Think of some small changes you can make in the next 2 weeks that will make you feel better and more confident.

Everyone falls off the wagon sometimes, but the key is being able to get right back on. So start eating healthier today, right now, at your next meal. I’m not saying skip the cookies- but make some smarter choices this week! And by all means, rev up that exercise.

And remember – next week I’ll be posting the first workouts for the No More Resolutions January challenge!

25 Days of Workouts

10 minute warm up

For 15-20 minutes follow:

15 seconds at 9.0 mph

45 seconds at 4.5 mph

10 minute cool down

Take it at your own pace – stop if anything feels off. This should be your only cardio for the day. Don’t overdo it!

    HIIT sounds awesome! I’ve never ever ran at 9.5 How does one do that at 5’4″?

      LOL. Tell me about it. I’m only 5’1” and I look like a hamster running that fast.

    I am scared of HITT but so want to try it. It will make an incredible workout.

    I LOVE Thai but my husband is not a huge fan. I need to make some chicken satay for an app for Christmas. YUM!

    I am obsessed with Thai food. There’s a place right across the street that’s rumored to be awesome, but I’m scared to go because if it is I’ll eat it like every day.

    I’m so glad for the encouragement. I worry alot about not getting exercise in during the holidays but that’s mostly because I most prefer running and running takes time… least when you need to make 20 miles a week goals!

    I’m going to persevere!

    I’m with you! Great post. It’s been a battle, but so far I’m maintaining through the holidays. Not losing, but not gaining either. Exercise in any form is the key!

    HIIT does work incredibly well at both boosting the metabolism, increasing HGH, etc.

    You may want to add in 15-20 minutes of steady state cardio right after at a medium-to-low intensity level.

    Here is why this works well. HIIT is effective at releasing Free Fatty Acids from your fat cells into your bloodstream. So starting your fat loss cardio with HIIT is a great idea.

    …but steady state is better at using those free fatty acids that the HIIT released. So follow up your HIIT with 15 minutes of a fast walk or slow jog to take advantage of this window of opportunity.

    I LOVE Thai food by the way!
