I know. WHAT??????
But I'm Fitpossible, a fitness and wellness oriented community that I belong to has a CRAZY idea! We support and even (gasp!) encourage an hour of sleeping in, a little whipped cream on lattes and an evening with friends instead of an evening with free weights. Or maybe you think it’s brave, balanced and real. All of us at I'm Fitpossible encourage you to approach the holiday season a little differently this year. Focus on what you ACTUALLY need this holiday season. What do we mean by that?
Introducing our ‘tis the season social campaign!
This isn’t a free pass to skip the gym or to morph into a holiday couch tater. Nor is it a cookie eating contest. That’s not what we are saying. In fact, this isn’t a holiday “challenge” at all. At I’m Fit Possible, we are all about personal fitness around the holiday season and 365 glorious days of the year.
But, if you are going to skip the gym or make a deliciously sinful nutritional choice around the holidays, make it worth your while. For me it is all about choices.
- Take the time for YOU!
- Catch up with an old friend (in person, over the phone, go on a run date, whatever...just go!)
- Curl up by the fire with a peppermint tea (or wine or amaretto or cocoa)
- Treat yourself to a glass of wine
- Cuddle up with Fido (or...well...you get the picture)
- Go the theatre ...just go HAVE FUN however you like
- Clean out your closet and donate the items
- Go volunteer
ENJOY. RELAX. DON'T STRESS!
Most importantly, let go of the guilt and regret that swirls once you ditch the gym or make that poor nutritional choice. It’s done. You made the choice. Don NOT beat yourself up. Move on. And get on with it! The holiday season is already way too busy and stressful for most of us without the added stress of our fitness goals as well. Care for yourself. In whatever way YOU need to to get through this crazy month!
Just. Enjoy. Life. Savour what it important to you!
The BEST part is this social campaign is NOT traditional challenge with sign-ups and daily contests. From December 1-31 we will be featuring a new company and product every 3 or 4 days. We want you to SHARE with us HOW you are relaxing, enjoying, indulging and breathing this holiday season. Post on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook. Use the #imfitpossible hashtag and mention I’m Fit Possible so we see how you are living it up this holiday season. Each tweet, post or IG post earns you an entry to win an awesome prize. From TODAY until December 4th each Facebook post, Tweet and Instagram pic will earn you one chance to win a prize pack from Somersault Snack Co. Winners will be chosen at the end of Day December 4th, then we will feature a new product starting December 5th!
Be sure to check out (what? you aren't following already???) I’m Fit Possible, as our winners will be announced every few days via social media.
Oh and tweet me @crantina if you are participating!
Check out our fab sponsors!
But wait! There is more! :-)
Throughout the month of December each of us I’m Fit Possible Community members are relaxing, indulging, enjoying and breathing this holiday season. Additionally we will be sharing some yoga tips from Gillian (http://gillianboult.blogspot.ca/), our community yoga gangster. She will be focussing on how to use yoga to energize, breathe and stay true to you this holiday season. This is something I really need to do. Juggling 3 jobs over the holidays is going to be tough to get in some ME time!
Enjoy every moment, leave regret and stress behind.
Focus on what is important!
Think about what is is YOU want and need this holiday season.
‘tis the season!
