Hello! Happy Monday! Feeling tired and bloated? Me too.
This weekend was super fun and I’m definitely exhausted and feeling a bit sluggish, but it’s all good! Friday night was my 10 year high school reunion, which was actually really fun! I can’t believe it’s been 10 years since graduation. What a crazy decade it’s been. I made sure to chat with lots of old friends, but obviously stuck to my select few favorites! Here’s a few pics to suggest we only hung out with one another:
As I mentioned last week, I made a very conscious decision not to allow Thanksgiving to make me feel guilty. I am holding up my end of the bargain, but also using all those extra calories to feed my muscles during a few good weight lifting/HIIT cardio sessions! Here’s a really good workout I completed yesterday before taking Gloria on a super muddy walk in the woods:

I hope you all had a super fabulous Thanksgiving! I know the days following a big eating holiday are typically harder for me than the actual holiday, so I understand those potential feelings of regret…but hopefully you’re able to let it go and focus on the fun stuff this year.
