Greetings Fitness Mama’s...I hope this blog finds you and your families healthy and happy…it has been a great 2011 and although we have all had our challenges it has been a great year.
I hope that you have been able to enjoy your families and embrace each and everyday of 2011, after all that is what really matters. My prayer this Holiday Season would be that you take some time to be with your family, friends, and those you love. Life is so precious and it seems to be going by so much quicker these days…maybe it’s just me feeling this, but I doubt it. Live, Love and laugh each day for the rest of this month, don’t sweat the small things and curl up and try to read one more book. Make hot chocolate and pop corn and play a board game with your kids. Get out the puzzles and the soup and sit down and enjoy each others company…take some walks and bike rides and relish each day as if it were your last. Stress less, stretch more and be there for your friends that need you the most. Make this month the most amazing month of the year by just living each day to it’s fullest…I am going to do just that and I encourage you to do the same. Get some Fitness Mama’s together and try this energetic yummy brew that will get you ready for a great power walk “n” talk. You are going to love this recipe! It is simple, yet yummy too…especially if you like coffee…just another great way to be a good friend, share something tasty and get in a workout too.
Your going to love this!
Hot chocolate-Ice Coffee
Mix in blender until fluffy and frothy:
- 1 package instant hot chocolate mix
- 1 Cup chilled coffee
- 1/2 banana
Put in your favorite Christmas mug and enjoy.
Take some time to do some yoga this month…yoga restores the mind and lengthens the muscles… this is great especially if you are a mesomorph ( apple shape), endomorph ( pear shape), or meso-endo ( top of an apple and bottom of a pear shape)
DECEMBER SCRIPTURE: BE STILL and know that I am GOD…Psalm 46:10
I love this pose! Try it and hold it for 30 sec on each side… 2-3 times a week. Slowly work your way up to 2-3 sets holding the pose for 60.
The chair post is great for your lower body…try it for 30 sec 2-3 times a week…slowly work your way up to 2-3 sets holding the pose for 60 sec.
God Bless you and your families…May your Holidays be filled with warmth, happiness and wonderful memories…have an amazing Christmas and a Happy New Year!
I look forward to 2012 and sharing more fun fitness information with all my fellow Fitness Mamas…
