And another lazy day, so why not work out?

I did a hard core 30 minute treadmill workout. It says to go to an incline of 15 but I’m not going to lie, I just couldn’t. I only went to 12 and that was very hard! I was a sweaty mess after! I burned about 350 calories. I thought this would be a good one since I didn’t really have any other muscle group to work for the week.


You need to try this one for sure!

We are doing24 Days of Togethernessthis year and I think it will become a family tradition.

Every day you pick something out of the box that you have to do as a family. Some will just be Eric and I and some will include Alec. Saturday we pulled “Listen to Christmas music” out of the box and Sunday we got “Take a family photo”. So we did just that!

Here’s our photo: Alec loves UK. He just went to Rupp Arena on Saturday for his 1st b-ball game.

I tried to include Alec in most of the activities so some of ours say:

Family game night

Make Christmas cookies

Watch a Christmas movie

Go to Festival of Lights

Take a drive to look at Christmas lights

Go buy a new Christmas ornament

Eat chocolates

Drink Hot chocolate

I’m excited for these 24 days until Christmas. I love the holidays!
