Sunday Funday! Last of 2013!

I seriously cannot believe how fast this year has gone by.  Only 2 more days left!  Holy crap!  Maybe my internal clock is really off or something, but I feel like December just started and Christmas is over already!  Christmas is not that big of a deal to me, and all I did was go out to eat.  I had lamb, duck, and pork belly lol.  Then lobster on Friday.  So I am totally over eating out for a while.  Thank goodness there's Kevin from FitMenCook.  I have been obsessed with this guy for months now.  If you don't follow him on Instagram, you should.  He makes really awesome 10-second videos on Instagram with all kinds of creative and super easy healthy meal recipes.  He even lists out the macros, and it's given me many ideas!  Like yesterday, I combined his olive tapenade chicken rolls recipe with his popcorn shrimp recipe, and made popcorn olive tapenade chicken rolls!  Lol.  It was so freaking delicious, and it felt like I was cheating!  I even made my own sauce to go with it, which was simply a blend of 0% fat cottage cheese and dijon mustard.  Yum yum.  Also fits my macros perfectly.

I baked them in a cupcake tray, because I was afraid the rolls would come undone.  Turned out really well actually!

It makes me feel better to make some delicious and healthy meals, since I've been eating out a lot.  I haven't been doing too badly, though.  I am actually seeing better definition in my abs, since I've been using all my extra calories to train hard at the gym!  I went to workout on both Christmas Eve and Christmas day.  I love the gym this time of the year.  But I'm really scared of what's going to happen next week when all the resolutionists start pouring in.  Sigh... 

Monday 12/23
What I did:  Lower body!  Followed by 30 minutes of cardio on 15%.  

Tuesday 12/24
What I did:  I had a short day at work, so I headed to the gym very early.  I did my shoulder/tri and then cardio session, to prepare for pigging out later!

What I wore:  I wore my new Express sexy stretch camo leggings!!  lol... they were perfectly fine for working out, albeit being on the thin side.  But it was upper body day so it didn't matter much.  I wore it as crops (just pulled the bottom up and folded it over itself), and paired it with Splits59 Devon tank in black, and Lululemon Centered Energy bra in flash under it.  Nike Free shoes in crimson.

I posted this earlier, but my outfit for Christmas Eve dinner was this Nameless embellished dress that I duct taped under and made into a shirt lol, with Express scuba leggings, my awesome lamb skin boots from China, Calvin Klein blazer over, and Balanciaga bag.

This is how the dress looks as a tank... taped it over:

Not obvious at all, IMO!

Wednesday 12/25
What I did:  Not gonna lie, I barely made it to the gym... came so so close to skipping it!  But I am very glad I went.  I felt much better!  I did my scheduled back/bi workout, followed by 30 minutes of cardio!

What I wore:  Lululemon swiftly racerback in angel wing paisley, with power purple free to be bra under.  Run For Fun crop in black paisley (haha!), and Nike Free Bionics in purple.

Thursday 12/26
What I did:  This is normally my rest day, but since I am on stay-cation from work, I decided to go to the gym anyways.  I did my lower body strength + plyo supersets.  Then I decided to change up my cardio a bit by doing full on 1-minute sprints on 15% incline, as opposed to fast walk.  Did about 10 of those and came pretty close to dying so I called it a day!

What I wore:  Lululemon seawheeze cool racerback in retro stripe multi, with Lorna Jane Duo bra in yves blue under.  Lululemon Lab Perennial tight, and Nike Frees in violet.  I think I like the LJ bra under this tank, because the blue is a close enough match to the blue (wish blue?) in the tank.

I love that the tank and shoes are a perfect match lol:

Friday 12/27
What I did:  Upper body supersets!  Then cardio again, went back to 30 minute of fast walk/recovery interval, because it's easier to watch TV at the same time that way... hahaha.

What I wore:  Lululemon Ta Ta Topper tank with free to be bra in faded zap under it.  Coal Team Spirit crop, and purple Nike Free Bionics.

Bra goes with shoe laces, obv.  :)

Saturday 12/28
What I did:  Stadium stairs run for 20 minutes.  This one is always brutal but at least it's fast.

What I wore:  Under Armour Achieve tank in high vis yellow, with pow pink Lululemon free to be bra under.  Black Beyond Yoga black skort, and Brooks Pure Drift shoes.

Sunday 12/29
What I did:  Well, it was rest day today, so I went on a 3 hour hike... lol.  I'm so used to walking fast on the treadmill at 15% incline, so walking up is really easy for me now and I barely break a sweat, even in 80 degree weather.  Can you believe it's 80 degrees here at the end of December??  Anyway, downhill is a different matter.  I hate it.  I went to hike at Echo Mountain, in Pasadena.  There used to be a hotel on top of it, with a trolley that would take you up there.  But it burned down about 80 years ago.  There are still remnants of the hotel and the train tracks though, which is kinda neat.  Here's what it looks like at the top, see the train tack on the ground?

Oh yeah, I wore the pink mist Mind Over Matter pullover briefly, because I thought it was going to be cold lol.  Ended up carrying it around the whole time of course.

Here's me hiking in action... and resting at the top!  Haha!  Oh I forgot, but I also wore the Lululemon Shady Lady visor that I got at the warehouse sale for 4 bucks.  It was actually quite nice and lightweight, and stayed in place the whole time!  

So after I came home, I was pleasantly surprised by a package from Lorna Jane!  My first thought was that I forgot I had ordered something?!  But then I opened it and they had sent me a 2014 calendar/planner book!  It has cute little motivational sayings for each day, as well as workouts, healthy living tips and recipes for meals and smoothies.  It's very cute and so nice of them to send me!  Makes me feel a lot better about just spending over 100 bucks there yesterday on two bras lol.  I think I will actually use this planner!

Here are some sample pages:

Eat this not that

Smoothie recipes

March workout calendar

Isn't it cute??  Big Thanks to Lorna Jane!  I love this thoughtful surprise!  :)

I hope you all are having a great holiday season!  One more week and it's back to the grind.  :)
