So, yesterday after my run (in the 80s. in December. in Austin. I know.), I hit up the HIIT workout I shared with you guys yesterday and I was a sweaty mess.
That’s the goal though, right? Love when that happens (and probably why I love OTF so much because I always look like this after workouts).
Also —> in case you missed it, I kicked off an Instagram giveaway yesterday! I have some extra Bolts lying around, so I want to gift them to someone else to enjoy the awesomeness of PROBAR! So, if you haven’t entered already, head on over.
I am in absolute disbelief that today is already Christmas Eve. It is insane to me how fast the past few weeks have gone, and so hard to believe that we are only days away from a new year. I must say that I am looking forward to putting 2015 behind me and seeing what 2016 has to bring. I have definitely learned a LOT this year, which I’ll talk about in my recap posts of the year, but wow… I can definitely say that I am a different person today than I was on January 1 of this year and I think that it is a REALLY good thing.
Anyways, as we gear up for Christmas tomorrow and New Year’s next week, I want to talk about holiday traditions. I think traditions are what makes the holidays into what they are.
One of the traditions that one of my friends and I started years ago was Christmas Eve Eve.
We would get together before all the family stuff went down and just enjoy the night together. It was great, especially after we were in college and didn’t get to see each other as often.
My family has some great traditions that I miss now that we’re older. My parents always let my sister and I open one gift on Christmas Eve and it was always new pajamas to sleep in that night. We also always get together with my Dad’s side of the family on Christmas Eve, which is always a blast, with tons of laughter and great food.
On Christmas Day, we open our gifts and usually will play a game of Monopoly or Farkle. For years, my mom has always made lasagna, but will switch it up here and there.
What are some of your favorite holiday traditions? Do you run any races around this time of year, or take time off?
Any movie suggestions?
