Hi All! Did everyone survive Thanksgiving?! Today is my Monday, I took yesterday off from work because I just knew I would need an extra day to myself to re-cooperate, and was I right! So let me rewind all the way back to Turkey Day... I started my day early with the Turkey Trot 5K, which went awesome by the way! I had a time of 27:45, which is just around the same time I had for the 5K I did back in July, so I'll take it! I will say that I felt much better running in the cold weather as opposed to the warmer weather, much more comfortable. Overall, a fantastic time and the 3 mile run definitely felt good to have under my belt before heading to TWO family Thanksgivings that day! Check out me and my running buddies below, they did awesome!

Me, Kista & Beth!
I was home from the race by 10:30AM, just enough time to get ready to head over to the families' house for Turkey festivities, Tony's Aunt's house at Noon and my parents' house by 4PM!
Enjoying their feast!
By the time we got to my parents' house I was ready for round 2, I made sure to eat reasonable light at both places, grazing the fixings, is a good way to put it. I am proud of myself because normally I leave Thanksgiving dinner feeling stuffed to the gills, but this time around I felt pretty darn good and managed not to overeat :) I brought over the game Mad Gab and my mom, aunt, sister, nieces and I played after dinner and I think all the laughing that was going on burned off most of the calories from dinner! If you've never played Mad Gab... YOU MUST... HILARIOUS! After all the fun, we headed home because I needed to get some rest because I volunteered myself to help out for the Black Friday frenzy at American Eagle...BAD MOVE! The mall opened at midnight and can you believe it, there were people actually lined up outside the doors! Luckily I only had to work 4 hours so it wasn't too terribly bad. But I am confident when I say, that is the LAST black friday I will EVER work again!
The rest of the weekend was pretty mellow. Went to yet another Thanksgiving gathering at Tony's grandpa's on Saturday and on Sunday the kids and I made a trip to Detroit to spend a nice dinner with the Italian side of the family, very nice to see everyone :)
We finally made it to Monday and the rest of the week. Today actually marks Day 60 of my P90X journey. I did my measurements and I'm so happy to announce that I lost 1 inch off my waist and an inch off each thigh! WHOO! My lower half was my targeted area this time around and I'm so so glad I was able to get some movement in that area! I took some pics too and I just had to show off the pic below because my arms have always been very easy for me to sculpt, I'm very proud of this pic, some girls may not like this look, but I think muscles are sexy! Oh! And I did my very first pull up during this 30 days too, GOAL! Happy with phase 2 of P90X! Here's to the last leg of the race! 30 days and I will have completed my FIRST ROUND OF P90X! BRING IT!!!!!! XXXXXXX
