Welcome December!!! Twenty more days until the days start to get longer again!! YAY!
This time of year can be such a whirlwind and can get really busy really fast. And it is often wrought with lots of sweets and rich foods. Just know you don't ever HAVE to eat them, even if someone made it just for you.
Also know that it is ok if you do decide to indulge a little. Enjoy it, don't feel guilty and move on. And take the time to move your body daily. That doesn't mean to do punishing workouts. Just work hard and work within your time and ability. It'll still be effective and won't add to your stress.
This week is race week for me, so I'll be keeping the workouts a bit lighter than usual, meaning higher reps and lighter weights and going easy on the cardio. And I've also decided that variety is better for me (and our group) than doing the same workout over and over throughout the month. It was a fun experiment to keep workouts the same all month, but I prefer to change it every time. It allows me to hit all the major muscle groups in different ways. And since I'm looking for overall strength/conditioning benefits and not training for a body building competition, I don't have to do the same workouts over and over. How you train all depends on your goals.
Hope you all have a great week!!
