Happy Holidays Friends!

I love this season! It’s a time when we celebrate and share our love with family and friends. Its a time for gratitude, giving, and merry making.

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have already seen some of my holiday photos. I wanted to share them with you in this space, as a Merry Christmas card blog post. Just a little slice of my life: the people I love and the memories I am grateful for. <3

Christmas morning run December 25, 2014. A lot of people talk about exercise during the holidays as a way to “burn off the cookies”. I think this type of mindset is negative and sets you up for a lifetime of yo-yoing with your body, diet, holidays, and self. Exercise should be a way to celebrate your health, NOT as a form of punishment. So this holiday season I invite you to view movement as a gift. As a way to live a more positive, powerful life inside and out. As a way to be more present in your relationships with others and with yourself. And as a way to have the energy and strength to enjoy every moment. My Christmas wish for you is a healthy relationship to yourself and to your life. Wishing you happiness and a lifetime filled with joyful movement.
