Anyhow. Yesterday I did way too much. So today I'm forcing myself to sit on our couch. And maybe take a nap or two if the percocet is kicking in a little too strong. :)
And while I was sitting here in my cozy stretchy pants all morning, I've found some serious motivation to really be healthy. Honestly, I need the endorphins from exercising and I love how much better I feel physically when I eat healthy. Not exercising and eating junk food just makes me cranky and emotional.
Who wants that? Not me.
So I'm going to start Skinny Sundays on here. Every Sunday I'll post our weekly menu plan as well as my exercise/fitness plan for the week. Want to join me? Link up your healthy menu or exercise plan at the bottom of each week's Skinny Sunday post. I'd love for you to be my online bloggy exercise buddy!
