But, after seeing the doctor I was given the go-ahead to resume my normal activities and that made me very happy.... to put it mildly. I was ecstatic! I was allowed to run and also resume lifting some weight, too.
So in November:
- I ran 48.67 km
- I walked 53 miles
- I did Pilates a few times
- I did my upper body routine with 8 lb dumbells and my lower body resistance routine a couple of times each week
Along with The Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge, and The Winter 100 Challenge, I have taken on another that begins December 1st and runs till Christmas Day.
It is one that I found on Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans called The 25 Days of Christmas Challenge. It involves doing some fitness and drinking 8 cups of water, every day. There is a Christmas Tree pattern that you can print and hang on your wall... and give yourself a sticker ornament every day that you do some activity, just like an Advent calendar. Only, this will be so much better for me than the one I usually have that offers up a piece of candy every day!
I have chosen to keep my tree on this blog so that it will be right in front of me. Poor tree; it is sad-looking and unadorned right now, but I commit to putting an ornament on it every day, and make it look as pretty as a festive Christmas Tree should be.
If you are interested, go check it out and join in the fun. I think it will be great to watch the decorations appear on the tree as I work-out my way through December till Christmas!
