I hope y'all had a great weekend to kick off the official best month of the year!! I spent it at work
My motivation this week is that I am getting back into it! The scale is starting to move again, I am eating better, exercising more, and feeling better! I really wanted to jump in on the squatting thing and plankmas, but now that I am infested with the plague I will be playing some major catch up! I have my second 5k coming up in a couple weeks and I am sooooo excited. I don't really have any hard goals for it, other than to run it. It is at 7am so I know it is going to be balls cold outside so maybe that will make me go faster... who knows. Jillian has been kicking my ass most of the week, and I don't love it, but I don't hate it either. I am feeling the effects so I guess I'll take the torture.
Don't forget to sign up for Secret Santa Swap!! Today is the last day to email me with your info!! Name, address, what makes Christmas special to you, and a little blurb about yourself to give your Santa a start!! Names will be drawn tomorrow and you will have their info by the end of the week!!!
Now, here's a little bit of Sassy Pants for ya..... It really grills my bun that people feel the need to be overly PC during this time of year. I am a big fan expressing my holiday joy to all I see, it's the south, that's what we do, but I hate being told that I shouldn't say Merry Christmas for worry of offending someone. I mean if someone walked up to me and said Happy Hanukkah I would smile and not be the least bit offended by that. So why is it that the word Christmas OFFENDS people, yet all the other garbage that is out in the world is okay? I'm not saying that Christmas should be forced upon everyone, but why can't we all just express our own holiday greetings without fear of if someone will take it the wrong way.... aren't they all positive celebrations in their respective cultures or am I underhandedly kicking somebody's dog by telling them Merry Christmas instead of Happy Holidays??
So, I've been seeing people's "Elf on the Shelf" schemes all on Facebook and Instagram and having mixed feelings. One the one hand it is kinda creepy looking and I think the concept of a living doll running around the house at night would have been a little Chucky-esque for my tastes as a child on top of me having to clean up after the little hell raiser PLUS why does Santa need to send an elf to your house to keep tabs on you when he's already got that covered on his own? On the other hand I'm in LOVE!!! So much so that I asked Ryan if I went and bought one if he would do it for me every night and he said YES!!!!!!! So I need to figure out if he was for reals or not, because I just may be driving my sick ass up to Target to get me my Chloe or Phil!! Yes, I've already named it.
