I suppose everyone does not have to go all out like my girls and I do, but come on, it is the holiday season and how cute are little elves going to be on this long path? But maybe a 5k is too intimidating for beginning exercisers, so some other ideas to get a good holiday work out in could be shopping! Yup, you read that right, shopping can be a really great form of exercise because it can involve a lot of walking, especially in a mall type setting. If you aren’t a shopping maybe you can simply help your pooch stay in shape too by taking them for a walk. In short, start walking somewhere, anywhere, and help cut down on those holiday Calories that are so difficult to resist. You may just see my family and I while you are out in about, we’ll be the ones dressed as elves!
