Daily stuff:
A post without any pictures. While writing this I realized I didn’t take pictures of anything last week.

Saturday morning R. and I went shopping. This was unique because we both hardly go shopping and we don’t shop together. We went to a men’s and women’s store in our village and both scored a great outfit. I bought mine in a store that won a reward for the best store in Holland this year and the service was fantastic. I know you are going to say: show me.
I will but not today, I have a Christmas lunch at work next Friday and I will wear it then and will take pictures too.

Yesterday, it was exactly 10 years ago I started my current job. I was supposed to have a small party at work this afternoon but my manager has been sick and extremely busy the past couple of weeks and he asked me if we could celebrate this in January. He wants to prepare it good and give me the party that I deserve. I don’t mind to wait a little longer so we postponed. I did get my bonus letter this morning and got a great bonus for working 10 years at the company. It’s all going to my savings account for a new car.

Only 2,5 days of work this year and counting down!

Last week was a terrible workout week, not even worth mentioning. I did only 2 workouts last week. The plan is to finish the last 2 weeks of this year strong and I started this morning with a Jillian Michaels Extreme Shed & Shred workout. I loved this workout because of the great variation in exercises. It had yoga, plyometrics, kickboxing etcetera in it.

Total time: 39 minutes.

Bella and Fran’s Autumn challenge: walk at least 30 minutes every day:

Days till the end of Autumn (Thursday December 20): 90 days
Success: 69 days
Fail: 18 days

Almost at the end of this challenge, only 3 days to go and already I’m very happy with our result. This will be our last challenge but that doesn’t mean we give up the walking. We will take our daily walk as much as possible.

  1. You and I started working at our jobs at nearly the same time. I’ll be celebrating 10 years at mine in August. My company doesn’t do individual parties but people are recognized at our annual party and given a gift which is nice.

    Exercise can be hard this time of year for sure. Unless I’m trying to make a running goal like I was last year, I often skip it quite a bit around the holidays. Right now I’m still managing once a day to do something which I’m happy about.
