We have both Christmas Eve and Christmas day off this year so this is my last day of work before a four day weekend. I am going to work between Christmas and the New Year holiday this year. I very much enjoy working between the two holidays, not only because it is quiet and I can get a lot done, but because the people who are there with me always seem to be more relaxed and open than usual. The kids and I have decided to try to do workouts every day the YMCA is open during the break. I have been going like crazy for about two months now which means (of course) the first thing to fall by the wayside was my workouts. It is painful to get started again after such a long break, but it will be nice to go into the New Year with at least the start of a little bit of conditioning under my belt. What with the great food we have planned, I am just hoping to break even weight-wise. The only way I will be able to do that is to get some exercise.
