See that Search button up there at the top right of the screen?? ^^
If you type the word Christmas in that search bar, you will get my Christmas workouts and tips from years gone by. There are a handful of articles that might be helpful in you succeeding the holidays without overindulging and keeping you in tip-top shape throughout December.
And since it is December and we’re getting closer and closer to Christmas (we’re about 18 days away), I thought it would be a perfect time to post another Christmas Fitness note. This one is the 12 Days of Fitness.
And technically, we are a little further out than the 12 days of Christmas, but I know there are days that some of you absolutely won’t be able to fit in a workout. Some of us are busy with work (and many shift workers can’t manage every day), or kids, or functions, or shopping, or whatever is happening in your life, so you get a few extra days in between to hopefully find time to take time for yourself and get your exercise on.
This workout is actually super easy so that 1. you can fit the time in or 2. you’re new to exercise. The workout only calls for one exercise per day, as you can see from the picture. However, it is an accumulator workout so you can also look at in several other ways:
- As just noted above, perform just the specified exercise per day; OR
- Each day add the next day’s exercise (this is the accumulation) so that you’re doing 1 exercise the first day, 2 exercises the second, 3 exercises the third day, etc. ; OR
- You can do every exercise each day.
- Or – if you want to go even further than #3, you can do each exercise for a full minute (or longer) each day.
The great thing about at-home workouts is that you can make it fit to your schedule.
If you’re anything like my and you like a cheesy Hallmark Christmas movie (obsessed), you can try one of these fun Hallmark Christmas Movie Workouts. They’re cute and, let’s face it, if you pay attention to these movies, you’ll get a good little workout. Incorporate it into your evening binge with friends or your kids or partner. (Bonus Burpees or squats if Candace Cameron Bure is in your movie or/commercial.)
The main thing to remember is to take time for yourself this holiday season. Go into the new year feeling refreshed and shiny and bright.
