Christmas vacation week

christmas vacation week

I decided to do something a bit different this year. I decided to view the week between Christmas and New Year’s a real vacation. I used to love this week off when I was in school; you had the time to enjoy the Christmas presents and time to look forward to the New Year. We always used to go skiing during this week too, which was a fun way to deal with the cold weather.

I didn’t go anywhere this year, so this was more of a vacation in my mind. Those types of vacations can be good too. I kept my usual schedule of waking up at 4:30 am and doing my exercise. This is just second nature to me.

The big difference was in the afternoons when I would usually be working on my Harvard project. I took time off from that and did a lot of reading. I’m slowly making my way through the Wall Street Journal’s list of notable books for 2015. I read in our family room, where our pretty Christmas tree was. It sure was nice to see the sparkling lights on those dreary and dark December days.

Speaking of Christmas, I hope you all had a good one. No surprise for me that all of my gifts were fitness related.

My gifts:

  • Cathe Friedrich’s lasts DVD series
  • Walking shoes
  • Sweat shirts and sweat pants
  • Fitbit – my favorite gift of all. In fact I love this gift so much, I will be doing an entire blog post about it. Stay tuned.

Here’s hoping for a glorious New Year ahead!
