It has been a relatively quiet day, which isn’t a bad way to end off the year and the decade.
I spent a lot of time today getting all of my new clothes entered into my Stylebook app. I appreciate this app as it lets me keep tabs on what I wear in my wardrobe and what I should let go. Lots of my friends tease me about it, but it has definitely helped me step up and buy good clothing when I see how little cost per wear they end up being.
I grabbed my mom and then did a few boring errands. I bought a ton of treats for tonight and now feel like I have eaten way too much!
I ended up watching two Hallmark Christmas movies so ended up exercising twice. I did:
36 reverse lunges
20 plié squats
25 curtsy lunges
20 high knees
60 squats with side leg lift
20 reverse crunches
20 side kicks
26 front kicks
50 mountain climbers
16 shoulder taps
10 side shuffles (both ways is 1)
10 knee raises
16 lateral lunges per side
I have watched Picture a Perfect Christmas and Mistletoe and Menorahs. They were both fun.
I am now trying to identify elements that are in lots of non seasonal hallmark movies so I can keep the exercise regimen going.
Here’s what I’ve come up with so far:
Going for a walk or run
Eating a meal together
Playing with a dog
Conversation with mom or dad
Arguing or bantering
Baking or cooking together
Town scene or montage
If anyone has any other elements, I’d love to hear them!
I wanted to save the last day of Abbey’s Blogmas until today since it’s about New Year’s Eve.
Oh and if you haven’t visited Abbey’s site, you really should! She has an awesome post about what she thought her year would be like. It’s so neat!
New Year’s Eve has never really been a huge event in my life. As a kid we did a jigsaw puzzle and banged pots and pans at midnight. As a teenager/20 year old, I went to parties with my brother and his friends. Now I mostly just spend a quiet night at home doing my usual movies, books and knitting. One thing I do think about are my goals.
Goals for 2020:
I am very goal oriented and can become obsessed with accomplishing so I try not to make too many set in stone goals. Some things I want to keep in mind this year are:
Eat to fuel my running and be healthy.
Do a workout every time I watch a hallmark movie.
Knit sweaters, hats and scarves for myself.
Knit from my stash
Keep track of my exercise and finances the old fashioned way.
Read more non-fiction.
Well I’m sure there are lots of other things I’ll come up with along the way, but this is good for a start:)
Happy New Year everyone and have fun!
