We have been trying to bring the holidays into our workouts this season. Last week, we took on some fitness dreidel action, pairing stairs with the luck of the spin, and the opportunity for some burpees if it all went wrong.
This week, we were visited by three ghosts – past, present and future, with the tolling of the bell, while undertaking some “reindeer games” of plank tap/mountain climbers, and V-Ups, because reindeer have the sickest abs of all magical flying creatures probably.
The Ghost of Christmas Past visited us with the sole chiming of a bell – super spooky, right? Totally. To visit the past, we took a stroll down memory lane – specifically, a dirt path making its way through the lawn of the State House.
The Ghost of Christmas Present visited us with two bells, at which time we ran up the stairs and found ourselves focusing on our task at hand – being present, being mindful – of the 1 minute Wall Sit crushing our midlines.
At three bells, the Ghost of Christmas Future, the scariest of the three, showed up. As Holly put it, “The future is far away. And so is the top of that hill. Go!”
We took the time to get rid of the Bah Humbugs of the cold weather, and choose to be living for now to become our best selves, and better our community. Because like Dickens said, “There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor.”
