One of our Christmas traditions is a casual themed dinner on Christmas Eve. 2 weeks ago I had my heart set on doing something a little different, eating out on Christmas Eve. Fast forward 1 week and I've changed my mind. So, now I'm planning an Italian dinner party :)
Roasted Vegetable Strudel (via)
Pesto Chicken Sandwich (via)
Lemon-Basil Antipasto (via)
Tortellini Caprese Bites (via)
Petite Lasagnas (via)
Chicken, Broccoli, Olive and Goat Cheese Pizza (via)
And because this is my all time favorite pizza. Chicken, Goat Cheese and Roasted Pepper Pizza (via)
That's what I have so far. Still a little more planning to do. Maybe another pizza or 2? Definitely desserts!
Do you have a favorite italian recipe? An italian family favorite?
This post is actually my reminder. Over the weekend I realized I hadn't realized how many virtual events I signed up for. My husband is going to read this and either shake his head, roll his eyes or both!
I take full adavantage of the holiday season :)
Virtual Holiday Calendar 2011
It's all too much fun to pass up! How are you celebrating the holidays? Real life only? Virtual races? Gift exchanges?
Time to workout!
Week 2 Review After kind of a crappy start to the week (with almost every workout being a conversation with myself about how much I didn't feel like working out) I ended the week with the best run I've had in about 3 weeks! 6 miles, with the exception of mile 1, at an average 9:32 pace! It felt so good to begin feeling like I wasn't recovering anymore. I smiled while I ran and for the rest of the day!
This was the second Saturday of joining a new running group. We started together but didn't actually run together this time. They were doing track work and I just wanted the mileage. No worries. I felt great, ran a new route and enjoyed myself the entire time!
Week 3 Goals
Sunday - run 5, Stretch X
Monday - Chest, Shoulders and Triceps ; Ab Ripper
Tuesday - run 6, Ab Ripper
Wednesday - Back and Biceps; Ab Ripper, Interval Plus
Thursday - Yoga X, run 5
Friday - Legs & Back; Ab Ripper, Kenpo
Saturday - run 10, Ab Ripper, Stretch X
(all strength training, cross training and most core workouts are P90X and P90X Plus)
Continuing with the same Nutrition Goals from last week.
Adding One More Goal this week.
And lastly, I leave you with this because I'm a sucker for Nike ads and I wish this was my lunch hour.

Welcome to Fitness Friday blog hop! A weekly blog hop for blogs that focus on overall fitness and health.
A year ago I decided to give up my gym membership with a plan to start working out at home and running from home. After having a gym membership for more years of my adult life than not I wasn't sure if working out at home was going to work. One year later I'm still working out at home (and running from home). Something as little as not having the travel time has made all the difference in the world with consistent strength and cross training.
And after a year I was pretty sure I would stick with it so now I have this, my happy place (the photos were taken for my running scrapbook)...
I usually have my weekly workout schedule written here (left). This week started off kind of yuck so I needed this motivation.
The photo on the right is a challenge from Chad and Alec. A timed 300 Workout! I can do this. Bring it!
Do you workout at home or a gym?
