    📌 Meditation

    Fit December
    Squat Hero Challenge - Day 21 (substituted standard squats, 30 in one go)
    30 + 20 minute walks outside (2.2 mi / 3.5 km)

    We found out today that my dad and his wife were exposed to covid last weekend at a wedding (and they woke up with cold-like symptoms this morning), so my dad, my sister, and I decided that we're not going to do an in-person Christmas with him this year.

      Squat Hero Challenge - Day 22 (30 in one go)
      55 minute hike outside (1.2 mi / 1.9 km)

      We took my niece on her first Colorado hike today! She did a great job - her dad carried her for the first two-thirds of the hike, but she insisted on walking the last third herself!

        30 minute hike outside (0.6 mi / 1.0 km)

        We took my niece on another short hike today. She was less interested in walking today, so my sister carried her most of the way. There was a playground at the end, though, so that was the highlight for my niece!

            📌 Meditation

            Fit December - Day 21 (used hall pass and did 50 jumping jacks instead)
            Fit December - Day 24 (1 minute rest between sets)
            Squat Hero Challenge - Day 24 (3 sets of 10)
            40 minute walk outside (0.5 mi / 0.8 km)

            My sister, brother-in-law, and niece headed back to Wisconsin today, and I returned home from my mom's. Although my dad and his wife have had two negative covid tests each, they do have pretty bad colds so we are still not going to gather with them for Christmas. Even so, I had a nice holiday at my mom's and I'm so glad my sister and her family were able to visit!

              Glad you were able to have a (mostly) happy Christmas! And big yay for baby's first Colorado hike!

                    I was originally planning to take today and tomorrow off work, but since my sister went back to WI a little earlier than originally planned, I decided to work instead. I'm quite sore today - I think I overdid it a bit yesterday with all the catch-up workouts.

                      A large herd of goats has suddenly appeared in a field next to the path I often walk on in the mornings. I have never seen animals in this particular field before... I suspect they are rented goats being used to clear the overgrown field. I hope they stick around for a bit though, as they are fun to watch!

                        I was planning to take today off work so my husband and I could go skiing, but we checked the covid data and the county where we would be going currently has one of the highest infection rates in the entire country! So, we decided it would be prudent to stay away for now. I really hope things improve so we can feel comfortable going skiing later this winter and spring.

                          I decided to take the day off work today. I also have tomorrow off as a holiday, so that gives me a 4-day weekend!

                            I went for a nice walk in a nearby nature preserve this morning, but otherwise I didn't feel like doing much else today. My husband and I spent the afternoon playing Wingspan with the new expansion I got for Christmas, and then we watched the last two episodes of Ted Lasso season 2. We also made a pecan pie today, but I found it too sickly-sweet for my taste (I've never been a fan of pecan pie, but I figured I should give it another try). We went to bed before midnight because we are old (not really!)

                                Congratulations on Squat Hero!

                                Those goats are adorable! Thank for sharing!

                                Have you tried pecan pie muffins? Super easy to make, much less sweet. I find the pie to be too sweet as well, so those muffins were a spectacularly amazing find!

                                Happy New Year!
