Happy and HEALTHY Christmas!

This is such a wonderful time of reflection and joy! I am beyond blessed to have lots of family to celebrate with at Christmastime. With two small children, the excitement and joy are almost palpable! 

As a tradition, we have always spent the night Christmas Eve at my maternal grandmother's house. In fact, I have never woken up on Christmas morning anywhere else! I feel so blessed and lucky to still be able to share this tradition with my husband and kids as I know it won't last forever.

Like most families, our traditions are also full of goodies- fudge, pralines, chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies- the list goes on and on. I'm not expecting myself to be perfect- I'll enjoy the yumminess, but try not to overindulge, and I'll be working out every day except the day of Christmas when all of my energy will be focused on family!

Some tips to make your Christmas day a healthier one...
- Drink LOTS of water- at least half your body weight in ounces.
- Eat your fruits and veggies- at least 6 cups.
- Drink your shakeology- your healthiest and easiest decision of the day.
- Stand more than you sit- you'll burn more calories.
- Laugh a lot- Good for your waist and your soul!
- Focus on the company you keep, not the food you eat.

Wherever you may be spending this Christmas and whatever your circumstances, I hope you're able to take some time to reflect and focus on the blessings that surround you! I know so many have lost loved ones and this year will be very different than Christmases past. I pray for your comfort and peace and that you may find some happiness and hope in this most wonderful time of the year!
