Good afternoon friends! And more importantly...Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you have had a fantastic day so far. Mine has been absolutely NUTS! Of course I started the day off with a FAST but KILLER workout, then it was off to volunteer for the entire morning/early afternoon in my son's Kindergarten class. Let me tell you, it was too cute to see how excited 5 & 6 year olds could be about a day of LOVE. But I've got much more going on the rest of the day with parent teacher confeence meeting and oh yeah, SOCCER PRACTICE (yesss...in case you didn't know, I am a SOCCER MOM). This is how I've spent my day of "LOVE" and will continue to spend it...romantic isn't it?!
So this blog is going to be SHORT and SWEET! Here's the deal...most of you will be INDULGING tonight in some serious calories. Whether it be APPETIZERS, combined with HIGH CALORIE FOOD, ADULT BEVERAGE(s) AND...DESSERT you need to make sure you put yourself at a DEFICIT. Get up right now and do 50 Jumping Jacks! Don't want to cause a scene at work with people staring at you...take a quick break and go for a walk 3 TIMES around your office building. Work from home??? Down the block and back up 2 TIMES...Stay at home Mom/Dad??? Turn on the stereo RIGHT NOW and move...groove to 5 of your FAVORITE songs on your Ipod and DON'T STOP until the last song is finished!
My point is, don't waste all the hard work you put in or have put in this week to get yourself closer to your Fitness GOAL because of ONE day. And don't say "oh Famisha, it's only ONE day. I'll get back on it tomorrow!" You can say that all you want, but if you have been sedentary ALL DAY and consume a bunch of calories tonight...you have no one to blame for the scale being up tomorrow but YOURSELF. So MOVE...even if it's only for 10-15-20 minutes...every bit counts!
That's my blog of the day! Short and SWEET (no pun intended!) So enjoy ONE piece of chocolate and whatever else you and your Sweetheart decide to have for the evening and make sure you have done something to also promote your health and fitness for the day.
Thanks as always for taking the time to stop by and hear what I had to say. Now go have yourself a Happy, Healthy LOVE filled day! And a Fabulously Fitness Filled Week!
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!
As Always...Stay Fit and Happy!
