Merry Christmas Eve! It has been awhile since my last post. If you have LIKED my Facebook page, then you know my charger to my computer bit the dust last week and I had to go out Friday to get a charger and missed our regular Friday post.
We had a busy weekend of Christmas activities: Christmas with my in-laws on Saturday & our annual Christmas date downtown on Sunday evening. Then, this ugly stomach virus came for a visit Monday afternoon and has made me couch-ridden (as much as I can be with two little ones) ever since. I finally started feeling better yesterday evening in time to bake cookies and wrap all of our gifts.
Today is a busy day as we are hosting my extended family at our home before our Christmas Eve service at church. I will be whipping up my traditional Christmas Eve vegetable beef soup and some yummy appetizers. Before I get to my long to-do list, I am off the gym to teach a fun, festive class and take some ME time.
With the hustle and bustle of the holiday, it is so important to make sure you still make time for your health & fitness. Drink your water, eat your veggies, and increase your heart rate. When I am busy in the the kitchen, I always like to have an at-home workout that I can complete. Sometimes I will take 30 minutes and knock something out and other times I will do it in between batches of cookies. You could even wrap three presents, complete a segment of a circuit, wrap three more presents, etc. Whatever you do, just make sure you MOVE!
If I had to bet, the busy-ness won’t end on Christmas Day. If you are like us, our weekend is packed with holiday festivities. If that is the case and the gym might not be an option, here is an at-home workout for you. Make this your healthiest holiday yet and break a sweat- no excuses, here is a workout for you:
Your turn- tell me!
