Happy Monday! How was your weekend? December is always a crazy month for us and so far this year is no exception. Our weekends (and weeknights) have been quickly filling up with different Christmas events to attend. This week we’ve got two sick kiddos on our hands too which always makes life a little interesting. I swear, ever since Parker started school we’ve got some sort of bug around here every other week!
Jen: I’m still focusing on base building before starting to train for the Syracuse Half Marathon next month. I also started my first round of the 21 Day Fix the day after Thanksgiving. It’s time to get rid of these last few baby pounds that have been holding on for dear life! I’m seeing some good results after one week and I’m loving the workouts too. They’re challenging but only 30 minutes long! I’m doing them in addition to running so I’ve tweaked the plan a little to account for the extra calorie burn on days that I’m running. I’m finding that I’ve been able to hold faster (for me) paces in the last couple of weeks, so hopefully I’m headed in the right direction for a PR!
