Yes, my friends! We are 12 weeks away from Christmas! How are you getting ready? Do you have your shopping list? Are you unpacking the decorations? How will you celebrate the Winter Solstice? But more importantly, how will you keep your fitness up? This is the time when many people abandon their fitness routine. I get it. You’re busy, There are a ton of things to get done (and they have a deadline, no less!). Family is coming, the house needs to be cleaned, the cooking needs to be done, the shopping needs to be done, the gifts need to be wrapped…need I go on? But as I know you know, you can’t fill from an empty cup. Your own self-care is crucial to your being able to take care of everything else. I encourage you to think of your fitness not as another item on your to-do list, but as something you do for yourself, something that helps you feel rejuvenated and something that lights up your day. Don’t think of it as “exercise” think of it as “self care”. Whatever you do to stay fit should feel good, not a chore.
With the change in seasons, you may not be able to go outside as much. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up! The 12 Weeks of Christmas Challenge is designed to help you stay active by expanding your repertoire of indoor fitness activities you can do anytime, anywhere without any special equipment. So if you have a free moment while you are waiting for the oven to pre-heat, you can get in some movement while you wait! Join me on Facebook Live every Thursday at 9am Pacifc/12pm Eastern for a new challenge. If you missed this week’s activity, you can view it here.
