Today is the beginning of the 12 days of Christmas program, which will be indeed an great challenge for me as I'm currently vacationing with family and friends in Mexico. I haven't trained at all in the past week, since I arrived; this must change.

My general goal is to lower my body fat percentage from a current 18.7% to 16% by February 15th.

My goal for today is to focus on eating only wholesome food (no chips, fries, or junk).

So far so good:
-Homemade vegetable soup (tomato, zucchini, cilantro, potato, chayote, carrot)
-Pinto beans with cacti (sauteed with onion, garlic, green pepper, tomato)
-Sauteed mushrooms with garlic and green pepper.

I'm finding it very difficult to stay on track with my workouts while being on holidays. The main problem is that I'm feeling extremely relaxed and laid back, and the willingness to make myself exercise simply isn't there.

Any and all suggestions about how to stay focus and motivated while on vacation will be greatly appreciated. Sigh. :(

Food is going well, training continues to be non-existent.

On a positive note, my friends and family (who hadn't seen me in a long time) reckon my body has changed for the better: trimmer, more defined and definitely stronger. So, yay!

Hey diet is the hard part, so at least you are covering that! :D

Fallen_Horse & AdoraLove, thanks for stopping by!
No, I haven't trained while on holidays yet. Merry Christmas to you both!

Tonight is Christmas Eve and my big family get together and feast. It's my first Christmas as a vegan and I've found it super sweet that a couple of family members have asked how they can alter their dishes so I can eat them too. This has made me feel very loved and appreciated!

Survived Christmas dinner!

Now I'm just pondering why I can't be an average person and name my journal something more normal, like, say, 'Training Journal'. Sheesh.

Yesterday I did some rollerblading. It felt great! Didn't accomplish much today, except stay on track with my diet. It's so easy to stray when on holidays! I'm trying to focus on not being too permissive with thinking that it's just while I'm on vacation; after all, that's how bad habits are formed, right?

LOL Well, that's the nicest compliment I've received as of late! So, thanks so much for the ego boost ;)
Hope you're doing well.

I have the same problem, got the diet down. Finally made it to the gym today.
I also am doing this couch to 5k program.

Good luck! And yes you are hot :)

LOL thanks! :D


Today I'm in Texas, in transit-- coming back home to Canada after spending holidays in Mexico. It's going to be a loooooooong day.

I did, however, begin my year in an awesome way! On Jan. 1st I went hiking in the mountains of Monterrey, Mexico; it was beautiful and it has left me feeling cheery and energized. The power of exercising in nature, huh?
