Merry Christmas y’all! Sure it’s the day after Christmas, but the same spirit applies. ;)
I took Christmas day off from online activities other than a couple Instagram posts. It was nice to disconnect and enjoy time with my family and my boyfriend’s family.
This ornament I got in my stocking this year made my heart happy and was exactly what I was looking for! I love adding new ornaments to my tree / collection each year and this one will be a great representation of 2015 since it’s a photo from our East Tennessee Thanksgiving trip.
I was lucky enough to get a lot of presents this year and quite a few of the fitness gifts on my Christmas wish list this year.
Here’s the awesome fitness related haul from Christmas:
BlenderBottle Classic Loop Top Shaker Bottle – Shakes and smoothies! Spark! Drinks! I got this awesome all pink blender bottle for Christmas and I can’t wait to use it in the mornings. Having an easy way to make drinks on the go in the morning is always needed.
Everlast EverCool KickBoxing Gloves – I’ve been taking a kickboxing class once or twice a week for a while and I’m super excited to finally have gloves to use. Hitting the bags with my bare hands wasn’t pleasant so I never hit as hard as when I got to borrow the instructor’s gloves. Now I can go to class and give it all I’ve got!
FitBit Flex Mint Replacement Band – I bought some cheap colorful FitBit band replacements before Christmas but this one I got as a gift blew those all away. It’s the best color possible! I’ve been wearing it since I opened it on Christmas Eve and it just makes me happy. It’s the same color as my favorite watch… I love mint!
LuxFit Premium High Density Foam Roller – Oh man, was this exciting to see in my pile of gifts! I’ve got some massage balls for trigger points and adding this foam roller gives me a lot of self-massage options for my tight muscles. Sure, this isn’t a sexy gift but it’s so practical I could happy cry!
Christmas was good to me this year! I got a ton of other gifts that I’ll share about later since I want to do them in related groupings and the next one will include video.
I feel like Christmas got me ready to kick some major ass in 2015. Life has been rocky and confusing lately in some areas but with fitness and health I feel ready to take charge and achieve some new heights! The great thing about fitness is that there is always a new level or goal to achieve. You never finish. You just keep getting better and reaching higher and going farther. That progression and growth can be exciting because you get to look back at your old self and see how far you’ve come.
I’m so ready for the new year and new adventures it will bring!
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New year!
