Merry Detox Day...

It's Wednesday and Christmas 2012 is officially O.V.E.R. for me... We had a great one. The kids received everything they wanted minus the snow-cone machine (Elle has now been talking about since the big man didn't bring it - I will be going out today to get it), my house now needs an additional playroom, and we are about 5 lbs heavier. HOORAH! Here are some pics from Christmas Day - coming STRAIGHT at ya...

We did manage to get in a few runs and workouts over Christmas Eve and even on Christmas day, while the kids played in the play room with all their new toys... It felt really, really, really good - then I blew it by shoveling about 7 rice krispy treats down my face after dinner - eh... I love those things...

I kind of wanted to die on Christmas Eve - I pushed out 6 miles BUT good music helps. Nice to be hanging with some G and Troy. Reminds me of the Star Bar in college, after the bar would close my girl Jess and I would have the DJ (her husband now) play our favorite jams (yes I just used that word) and these were always on the list. The bouncers were cleaning up and we would be on the dance floor shaking our groove thang;)

Okay enough reminiscing... It is freaking DETOX day and this girl right here is doing NO CARBS until New Years eve... why you ask? remember that cream dress - yeah, it came on Monday and I have to fit into it WITHOUT spillage (SPANX you very much). So I MAY be a bia this week - so get ready... Here is to meat, water, veggies, more meat, cheese, water, even more meat.. AGH!!!!!!! I am already sad... Ugh... Oh well... on NYE I will be rocking the new digs and dancing my booty off - I have decided that my NYE song is going to be "Scream & Shout" by & Britney Spears - yep... CALLED IT!! LOL...

On the workout front - here is how the rest of my week up until NYE looks:
Wednesday (Today) - strength train
Thursday - 5 miles
Friday - strength train
Saturday - 7 miles
Sunday - 3 miles and strength train
Monday - strength train

Hitting it hard - isn't it crazy that when you ACTUALLY have somewhere to go and something to do, you are all "OKAY I AM DOING THIS". I need this motivation ALL the time... Hopefully this will jump start it.

Wednesday OUT...
NYE plans? Like Lil Troy? No carbs?


  1. Hey Mel! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I haven't been able to run since I had mouth surgery last week. I feel slow but then again I can't eat real good right now too. I hope I haven't forgotten how to run! Esther Norine Designs

  2. Great Christmas pics! I'm taking off for all my family Christmas stuff tomorrow so no detox for this girl. Chubby for New Years Eve, yay. Your workouts will have you lookin great girl!

  3. no carbs!! Girl, goooooooood luck :) Glad I'm not living in your house, coming off that rice krispie sugar high is going to be fun for EVERYONE. HAHAHAHHA!

  4. I'm thinking that no carb is the way to go if I want to have a snowball's chance in hell of winning my $20 back from DietBet. Love your family pictures, adorable!

  5. You're family is SO CUTE!!

    Yep, I am going to do "low carb" this week because I just don't think I have it in me to do NO carb until after New Years. Our plans are to hang out in jammies, so no cute dress to fit into! :)Saw the pics of the cream dress on IG and it is HOTT! I know you are gonna make it look good.

    Good luck girl!

  6. OMG - I meant YOUR family. I am such a grammar-judger, I can't believe I did that!

  7. I am not sure I could survive carb free! ... i might be willing to try... but I already had oatmeal today... and planning for pasta tonight... yep, couldnt do it! Good luck!

  8. So impressed you got in workouts on both days! I ran on Christmad Eve but I didn't have enough time to get in my strength training. Yesterday went by in a flash with no healthy choices. :) Good luck with the no carb challenge! That gorgeous dress is worth it, lady!!

  9. Girl- I hear ya on the detox. My body didn't take to kindly to the buttered up, overly indulgent, rich foods that I stuffed my face with. I figured I would give myself today to ease away from the craziness, and start detoxing on everything tomorrow...booze included because goodness knows I didn't hold back there either...I am sure you will look fantastic in that dress though! :)

  10. Merry Detox is the truth. I bought a whole bunch of fruit & veggies to start juice meal replacements. The things we do to make up for the sugar cookies (or rice krispie treats), no?

  11. Love your dress and you will look great in it. No carbs- you got this. I wanna be a baller haha. Why isn't music that good anymore like it used to be?!

  12. Eeek that is a lot of no carb days!! I know you can do it though!! You have a beautiful family and I hope y'all had a great Christmas!

  13. I'm picking Sunday to start my detox and I will def be grumpy next week but what can ya do? Shake shake shake shakeshakeshake shake yo groove thang!

  14. Your family is so gorgeous! What??? Working out on Christmas Eve and Christmas? Fist bump to that.

    So I am totally going to start writing out my work out goals each sunday to keep me from dragging my feet! Thanks for the motivation!


  15. Regulators!! I have the best memories of that song - I grew up in Atlanta GA so listening to rap was kind of a must :) I can still remember making our bus driver play that song over and over again in middle school :) Merry Christmas!!

  16. Girrrrl you got this. Carbs are for sissys. Veggies all the way! You'll rock that dress no matter what.

  17. Glad you guys had a great Christmas! Tell Elle it's too cold for snow cones lol.

  18. we have a snow cone at our house...that never gets used. but come to think of it, i should break that baby out and just eat the ice. there's no carbs in ice, right?! I'm on the no carb train too.....we will both be hangry. and girl, you are killing it with running those long (to me) distances...I hope I can build my distance up soon.

  19. You run A LOT during the week!!! You go girl!!! Do you typically run on your treadmill or outside?

  20. Loving your play list! Takes me back to grade school! I think I can sing every word to both of those songs!
