As a quick catch up...
I have yet to come off of my weight loss plateau. I manage to stick within a 4-5 pound variance and that seems to be where my body is happy for now. In another week, I'll be closing in on 3 months of this, so needless to say, I'm not thrilled. I'm still working out a lot. This week there's no kickboxing, so the gym has become my friend. Not really thrilled about that either because I find the gym dreadfully boring. To keep myself motivated, I have to attempt ridiculous amounts of time on cardio machines to have something in my head. Otherwise, I probably wouldn't go at all. While my body needs it (the rest, and the change in routine), I'll be glad to have the kickboxing back.
We actually had a White Christmas here in Colorado for the first time since we've lived here (almost 10 years now). We've had snow on the ground prior to this last Christmas, but it's never actually snowed on Christmas. The snow began falling Christmas Eve at about 6p or so, and finished up in the morning hours on Christmas day. Then, the sun came out and shed its glorious light, and it felt like Colorado again. It's been cold (at the moment we are in mid-teen digits), but nothing that has been intolerable.

Seems about right for these parts... snowing, but people still out running (and even festively!)
|It may not look like much, but this took an eternity to grind off|
I hope everyone had a beautiful holiday, and enjoyed it with those you love. Stay safe out there, and in case I don't get back in time for a new year's wish, a very happy New Year to you and yours!
