Live with what you love: Holiday Decorations

Live with what you love: Holiday Decorations

The New Year is almost here!  Tonight we will be ringing in 2016, and begin to start thinking about packing away our holiday decorations (if you have not done so already).  

Now is a great time to really look at all the decorations that you have, from tree ornaments to center pieces, and decide if you really really love it and want to continue to live with it.  We all tend to accumulate more than what we truly need, so take a close look.  Make room for sentimental items that invoke wonderful memories.  Every year, we hang my husband's grandmother's hand painted ornaments on our tree.  They don't match, are pink and blue, don't sparkle anymore, but our tree would not be complete without a few of these precious ornaments that are well over 100 years old.

GLOVES AND MITTENS - A WINTER WORKOUT ESSENTIAL!

GLOVES AND MITTENS - A WINTER WORKOUT ESSENTIAL!

Chilly temps don't stand a chance against these NIKE® women's Vapor Flash running gloves! Enhanced with wind- and water-resistant fabric on the palm and cuff, they'll keep you going strong in blustery conditions. A touchscreen-compatible thumb and forefinger make it convenient to access your phone, and strategically placed moisture-wicking gussets prevent overheating.

A key factor for me is to make sure my gloves and/or mittens have moisture-wicking properties.  Don't forget that warm cap and socks too!

It’s Over. Say Goodbye. Get out and MOVE

It’s Over. Say Goodbye. Get out and MOVE

You heard me. Put it down. You don’t need that last Milky Way. No seriously, you don’t. Will one more kill you? No. But you don’t need it. Step away. Throw it away. Like deep down in the trash so you aren’t tempted to dig it out later in a moment of weakness. Is it in there? Deep down? Good. Now get out of the house and go for a walk. Crisis adverted.

You’re welcome.

I think we can officially welcome Autumn at this point since it doesn’t appear it will hit 90 degrees again in the coming weeks. So welcome beautiful cool, crisp, air. Bright, deep, gorgeous fall colors, and every holiday that center’s around eating. We here at Mama Bootcamp welcome you with open arms. (notice I did not say open mouths?) but open arms yes, because it is the most wonderful time of the year!
