Easy Holiday Fitness Challenge

Deck the halls with boughs of parsley
Falala la laaa lala la laaa!
Tis the season to stay healthy
falala la laaa lala la laaa.
Don we now our gym apparel
fa lala lalala la la laaa.
Roll your mat out and just work out
Fa lalala la laaa la laa la laaaaa!!

Lyrics tweaked by yours truly (on the spot).

Okay forgive the lame attempt of a Fit parody of  a classic Christmas Carol. I just had to.

The holiday season is here and that means there will be food, and cake, and turkey, chicken, all kinds of other roasts, sinful delights and with all these comes a massive weight gain that we will all soon regret and then pledge during new year that we will get rid of all the weight gain ans such. Well have no fear and new and simple challenge is here! Are you ready?


A series of workouts that you will just do for 1 minute each with a 15 second rest in between exercises repeated 3 times. This will take you only about 15 minutes to complete.

Why is it not intense? Well we all know that during this holiday season, everyone will be busy preparing and going to events, parties and functions so we have this excuse that we don’t have time. Our goal this season is to be able to counter our eating by moving and staying active even for a short duration of the day. A little body pick me up. It is better to do a short workout than none at all. This challenge will be able to cater to your time restrained schedule. Just 15 (or a little bit more) minutes for 5 days a week for this month will really help you burn even a little bit of all those Christmas cakes that you will be having, plus this will give you a head start on your new year’s resolution. Right?

    To acknowledge and protect the welfare of
    these plumbers who gave their utmost to fulfill such requirements,
    hawaii only allows professional and licensed plumber to legally develop
    plumbing tasks. The arcade version also sported some
    horrendous stereotypes, such as the Italian boxer Pizza Pasta and the Russian Vodka Drunkenski.
    Students who attend city colleges often do so to acquire an associate’s degree and many tend to pursue state colleges or universities to earn a bachelor’s degree.

    Hi there, I do believe your web site may be having
    internet browser compatibility issues. When I look at your site
    in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues.
    I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Apart
    from that, great site!


  16. Katherin L. Urtiaga

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored
    myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any methods to help stop content from being ripped off?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.


  17. durl.me

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance.

    I must say that you’ve done a awesome job with this.

    Also, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Safari. Outstanding Blog!
