Will You Exercise on Christmas Day?

I like to keep up with my regular exercise routine, especially when I'm traveling, but sometimes during the holidays, I have so much going on that I don't have time to fit in my usual sweat session. Most of Christmas Day is spent as it should be — relaxing and spending time with the family I don't see very often — but after all the festivities are over, I try to get a few family members to go for a snowy hike in the woods. One year, we went nighttime skiing. This year I'm going to suggest ice skating. What about you?

I did Jillian Michaels shred on Christmas day. That night I got a horrible case of stomach flu though then and I haven't exercised since. I plan to get back in the gym tonight though.

I usually do, but I have a respiratory infection in my chest & figured it wouldn't be wise. I'll definitely make up for it!

I didn't do any exercising at all on Friday. Actually, I still haven't done any workouts.

I took the dog for a walk / run at 6.30 in the morning.But that is only because I couldn't sleep (I never sleep well Christmas Eve).I confess, I exercise much, much less than I should. But if I'm in the mood and I can, I do. So if I feel in the mood on Christmas day and I can...

I had to work, so I suppose that was exercise. I'm kinda bitter about having to miss out on christmas lunch so I can serve others christmas lunch. :(

I would have, but I left my workout clothes at home. I grabbed a few pieces, but I was in such a rush I forgot to pack important gear. Oh well. I'll be back on the horse Sunday when I get home. Not to mention, lounging around for a couple of days isn't so bad.

I'm glad I'm not the only one, I think that Christmas is for relaxing with family and eating chocolate. And that is just what I did.

I usually workout 6 or 7 days a week, so today I'm ALL about lounging around with the fam, enjoying my new presents, drinking some champagne, and eating a great dinner later. Back to the gym grind tomorrow, though!

Just came back from a 13 mile run. My running buddy and I started a little bit later than usual though. Instead of running at 5:30, we change to 7:00.
