I’ve never really understood why so many spend the holidays gorging on unhealthy food and doing as little activity as humanly possible. For me that would be a punishment, both for my body and my mind! So this Christmas like any other for me, I haven’t eaten more than I use to- or any different from my usual diet (as chocolate is a part of my diet regime ;). Anyway, I was upset to find out that the gym was closed over Christmas (last year it wasn’t and I was doing bench press at 2 pm on Christmas day), so when it finally opened on the 27th I was so happy. It has nothing to do with vanity, I just love to feel my body work and I love the way it makes me feel afterwards. There is no better investment in your health than working out and enjoying the wide variety of whole foods out there.
