Need Some Motivation During the Holidays?

Posted on: November 22nd 2013

Resolutions are for January, right?  Nope! Not anymore!!

I realized that especially after all the travel I’ve been doing this fall, I really need some help and motivation of my own to make sure I spend December getting stronger and fitter, instead of eating mom’s fudge and being hung over! So, I’ve come up with a fun fitness challenge that I’m inviting you to join me on.

This year, instead of waiting for January to focus on fitness, get ahead of the game by sticking to your goals in December! Set your personal fitness goals and December resolutions (with my help), and get fun challenges, reminders, and motivation all month long. PLUS, for the 12 Days Of Christmas (December 18-29) you’ll get an exclusive Candy Cane Crew workout each day.

Let everyone else laze around on the couch through the holidays – you and I are going to stick to our goals and our fitness plans, and hit the ground running – fit, healthy, and motivated come January first, ready for even BIGGER things.

Frequently Asked Questions…

(Well, no one has asked yet, so I’m making bold assumptions here. If you have more, please write in the comments below!)

Q. What’s the challenge? What will we be doing?

A. Part 1: choose-your-own challenge –  We’ll establish our personal goals in the first few days –  with group support! Whether it’s hitting to the gym 3x a week, getting to yoga class regularly, doing your stretching, or just keeping your red wine intake to a dull roar, we will set some individual mini-resolutions for the month. Part 2: Your mission is to plan and track your fitness all month long! Part 3: I will provide daily mini-challenges that you can choose to accomplish if they fit with your fitness goals. Part 4: For the 12 Days of Christmas, I will provide exclusive daily workouts for you to follow!

Q. What do I need to get involved?

A. A facebook account and email address; a small space where you can work out; a cheerful attitude :) and your $15 payment.

Q. Where does this happen? Do I need to be where you are? What time zone are you in?

A. You can do this from anywhere in the whole wide world! I will try to base my posts & email timing on north american daytime, as that’s where most of my followers live.

Q. Is this for weight loss?

A. This is for health, with a focus on physical fitness. The motivations and mini-challenges will range from fitness to nutrition to mental sanity over the holidays. I am not a nutritionist and there is no food plan involved. Candy Cane Crew members might feel frisky and share some healthy holiday recipes, and I’ll have some healthy eating tips, too.

Q. How does this facebook group work? How do I get in?

A. When you complete the PayPal payment process, you’ll automatically be added to an email group, and I’ll send you details to get invited to the facebook group. All the details will be distributed through those 2 channels.

Q. Why does this cost money? Is it worth it?

A. FANTASTIC question. Studies show that people are more likely to stick with something they have INVESTED in, over something they have joined for free. Plus you get 12 exclusive workouts to get you through the holidays looking and feeling strong and healthy. For 50 cents a day, I’d say it’s a screaming deal.

Q. But I LIKE egg nog and turkey and lying on the couch in a food coma at Christmas/Hannukah/Festivus. Plus I’m travelling, so it will be too hard to stick to anything.

A. You’re right. It’s impossible. Stop before you start!… Just kidding!  At this time of year, everyone should have parties, food, and fun, and some of us travel and stay with Great Aunt Matilda who has no space to work out in between all the crocheted doilies. This Challenge is about MODERATION not austerity, and about setting realistic goals for keeping your fitness going over the holidays. Your can have a total breakdown of your normal routine, or choose to take small actions each day to keep things on track with your health!

Q. So, you’re saying I should sign up already?

A.  You betcha.
