Holly Jolly Christmas Workout

Hello!  Hello!

I’m not even going to announce here how many days are left until the big day… but we all know it’s close!  Very close!  Are you traveling?  Staying home?  Super busy?

I know whatever you are doing time is hard to come by right now.  It might even feel like you don’t have any time at all.  BUT, let’s collectively all make time to eat more good foods than bad and keep a good attitude about our workouts in the days leading up to the holiday weekend.  My workout is the one time of day I’m disconnected and able to actually clear my head.  That’s why I think it’s even more important to put the time in when life gets crazy.

To help us all with those goals, I created a festive workout for the Christmas week.  It’s pretty intense and heavy on the cardio, so you get the most out of your limited time.

The fun part comes when you sing Holly Jolly Christmas each time you get to the jumping jacks.  It’s hard not to get in the Christmas spirit that way and I can only imagine you might actually be laughing by the end.  If you don’t know all the words to Holly Jolly Christmas pick another carol you know.


Repeat or even do the circuit three times if time allows.  Finish with regular, side and reverse planks.  Hold them one minute or more depending on your fitness level.  Bonus points if you can get someone to do this with you AND sing along.

    I love no equipment workouts when I’m traveling during the holidays. Today is our last day of work and then my husband and I are driving to Cleveland and then to Buffalo to spend some time with each of our families.

    This would be a great quick workout no matter what time of the year you do it.

    No equipment workouts are always so great for the holiday season as so many people are traveling!

    I am feeling a little less festive this year as Jesse and I have been working non stop but since I’m finished work today I am planning on baking up a storm and doing all the last minute Christmas things I can do alone before Jesse finishes work for three weeks on Friday!

    I will not be working tonight and my daughter usually does not
    work on Wednesdays and she’s not today. She and my grandson
    are coming here from Greenville and we are going out to eat
    and to see Christmas lights . ( smile ) ! I may catch a movie
    this afternoon. It’s odd for me being awake during the day
    during the week.

    If I can’t get outside to run, I may need to do this! Believe it or not, it is supposed to rain on Christmas!

    Not sure how jolly this would make me, but it definitely would keep me from looking like Santa!
