The children are gone.
The alarms are off.
My bags are packed.
My house is clean..ish.
CHRISTMAS VACATION IS HERE!
Seriously, just having two weeks off is all this pregnant teacher needs under the Christmas tree this year. Knowing this is my last calm and quiet Christmas, I plan on completely taking advantage of it this year, heading off to Knoxville tomorrow for almost two weeks with the fam.
This past week has been a little nutty, to say the least. Full moon+elementary school Christmas festivities+two doctor appointments in Dallas=I'M DONE HERE! Time to go home...
With that said, I've been feeling fabulous in my nearly 6-month pregnant body. I've got my week's workouts to share with y'all. With the holiday hecticness settling in, remember to keep taking time for yourself and your health! At a time of year overloaded with parties, pagents, and all that Christmaspalooza, the last things any of us want or need is to get sick...sacrificing sleep, nutrition, and exercise is a fast track to cold central.
Keep moving, y'all. You're worth it!
And as always, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns about any of the workouts and how you can make them work for you, just leave me a comment below. And my question for YOU today is this- With all the holiday hoppla around, how do you keep your health in check?
