The family had a wonderful Christmas full of family and friends, and even a bit of snow! As we all know finding time to squeeze in a workout is harder than ever. Especially when you’ve had to much holiday “cheer” the evening before. Luckily for me I am unable to partake in the so called holiday “cheer” everyone else does. I’m fine drinking my Perrier with a pinky up and my belly out, however I do miss my beer and wine. I miss it enough to count my reps using extra wine corks laying around. My husband uses them as a back drop for his dart board, I use them as a counter. 5 rounds total, pushing a corks over for every round completed. I know it seems silly, but for me it helps with the motivation. I put those corks in the “completed” workout pile and go for more. As they keep piling up, it keeps me motivated as I get closer to the finish.
After a few days off, due to Christmas, I was able to get in a quick workout, even with my little one running around and the dogs attacking me for kisses whenever I was on the floor! With Christmas and my crazy schedule, but I was dying to get back even if it was for 45 minutes.

My kind husband was able to capture a few more pictures than usual and show how I keep track of my rounds. Regardless of it only being 5 rounds, I find that between my pregnant brain and anything else going on around me I tend to forget what round I am on. Thanks to our huge collection of wine corks I use these to keep track of myself.
