Holiday Workout

Watch how I mix holiday festivities and socializing with a fun workout that keeps my healthy goals on track and doesn’t require any gym time.  Easy to get this type of workout in in any environment, and then meet up afterwards with friends or family at the nearby coffee shop for some fun and socialization. No need to isolate yourself away from all the activity, but also no reason to deprive yourself of what you need to be your best healthiest self.

The stairs at the San Diego convention center are 100 high – running up them, with lunges and high leg raises in between, then running sideways down, and doing this routine again a few more times.  Awesome and fun workout that has the reward of a hot cup of coffee and friends afterwards!

Between Christmas and New Year Planning

Between Christmas and New Year’s is a great time to create YOUR strategic plan for the next year. Take some time to write down: 1) WHAT you want (goals – work, family, personal, financial, physical), 2) WHY you want it (purpose) and 3) HOW you are going to get it (action items with deadlines). Hold yourself accountable and you will be amazed at what you can accomplish!

Advent Calendar – Day 4

This is my lifesaver. Being on the go more than standing still, I load this with food for the day on one side, and use the other side for laptop and personal items. Makes a great car or gym tote as well.

Advent Calendar – Day 3

Who doesn’t love fresh herbs? But they go bad so quickly. This really works to keep them fresh longer – I have had cilantro last a week in this.
