12 Days of Fitmas!
We have 12 days until Christmas and this time of year our focus is often on events, gift buying and trying not to get too overwhelmed. For this specific purpose, we have decided to give you one thing each day to focus on for the next 12 days. (This is in addition to your 25 day movement/behavior focus I'm sure you are all working on).
Our hope is that this small thing you do each day will help recenter you and keep you aiming in the direction toward health and fitness and away from stress and over-indulgence. Also it can be cumulative just like the song. For example on day 1 you do one walk and on day 2 you do 1 walk and 2 sets of pushups, and on day 3 you do 1 walk, 2 sets of pushups, and 3 vegetables.... you get the point.
Here are your 12 days of Fitmas!
