it's December?!?!

Just when you think you have plenty of time to slim down before slipping into that cocktail dress for New Years, the clock hits Midnight, you realize that it's already December...and you still look like a whale. 
After a wedding weekend where I felt like a bag of potatoes stuffed into my dress
(this picture is an optical illusion), I went to bed determined to wake up early this morning and boost my metabolism by restarting the Couch to 5k program for the 14th time today.
So here's how today's gone so far...
5:45: alarm goes off... I roll over and immediately start shouting 'noooo!!!' in my mind
6:00: drag myself out of bed and put on running clothes while John feeds Cash
6:05: let Cash outside after he eats, only to realize that its POURING DOWN RAIN.

Awful...just awful.

I didn't get to run outside. 
Whomp whomp.

So John made us do pushups, situps, wall sits, planks, and squats instead.

One day at a time, right? Hopefully the sky will clear up later and Cash and I can still go for that run... big girl needs to move it! 
Everyone wants a hippopotamus for Christmas, but no one wants to BE a hippopotamus for Christmas.

I hope ya'll had a great weekend and have a great Monday!!

You go girl! I hate when I want to be outside and it's raining or freezing cold! :(

I wish I had your motivation to work out in the morning... this girl is NOT a morning person!

I always hate when the rain rains on my parade. I get so excited about going outside to get a jog in, and it's pouring. Ugh. Glad you got a workout in though!!

Get it girl! I'm impressed that y'all still worked out despite the rain! That's what really matters right?

That dress is adorable and you look nothing like a sack of potatoes! But lord knows I can relate to the procrastination around diet/exercise. Especially diet . . . it sounds like a good idea, but then something delicious sounds like a better one. ;)
