First off let me say that I am so excited because this week is a three day work week because of the holidays! Short work weeks are the best.. its like the work week itself is a mini vacation because everyone seems to move at a slower pace, some people are gone.. and no one( well mostly no one) will bother getting angry about anything because their week is almost over and then they get 5 days off : )
I am also excited because I get to see my other half this week. (YIPPEE!!!) I love that we get to spend the holidays together.. I think its sharing something special and this year he is even venturing back to my hometown with me for the day to hang out with my family. I am so excited to be with all my favorite people at one time!
I am getting nervous because my gym will be closed thursday through Monday and I will be surrounded by amazingly good food and I minute amount of time and ability to exercise. Do the holidays make anyone else feel out of your healthy routine? My solution is going to be to work out as hard as I can Monday through Wednesday and then try to keep the pies and cookies to just Thanksgiving day in moderation and not take any leftovers. Although my family is Italian so that may not be a possability.
This weekend was awesome because it was full of friends and good food. Friday was "Light up Night" and for those of you who may be reading as non Pittsburgh Natives... Light up Night is the one weekend a year where they close off downtown and everyone can wander around seeing Christmas festivities and see the unvieling of the displays in the Macys windows. My friends Marlee,Sarah and I went down to check it out..
