Do you have a “holiday hangover” like us? It is the BEST and WORST type of hangover. It is the feeling of enjoying the holidays a little too much. I’m not sad about it. I was probably better than 90% of the average population. But, it is now time to get back at it in the fitness world. Here is a quick recap as to what the FourFitSisters have been up to!
Christmas card shenanigans. Don’t worry…our Christmas cards didn’t come in time. So I guess we really were taking “New Year’s” photos here. My hubby came home with these outfits for us. At first I was not sure…but after seeing them on I was pretty pleased. He is totally a Vineyard Vines kind of guy. I am way more of a Nike kind of gal. Getting dressed up is not always my thing. But, these worked out well.
It was MY turn to host Christmas. To say I was excited was a total understatement. As the only sister not in STL we are usually the ones traveling the most to see family. And it was so nice to be able to stay home and host this year! We had the house all decorated. Which usually always come close to ending in divorce. It actually went pretty smooth this year.
“Christmas” morning looked like this…
The kiddos couldn’t wait to dig into their presents. They had them nicely set in piles before breakfast had even been served!!!!!
A little cousin love on the stairs.
And some happy gluten free pancake muffin eaters. I just bought gluten free pancake mix, and mixed according to the directions. Instead of sitting in front of the stove all morning I made them the day before. They cooked in mini muffin tins for 20 minutes. The next morning we just popped them in the microwave. They were great for dipping. I even tossed in some chocolate chips for the kiddos. The adults enjoyed some breakfast casserole. YUM
Even the elves got in on all the fun. They aren’t normally all in the same house together. They were having a blast in their snowball fight. I think Clyde lost.
After hosting “early Christmas” at our house we all headed our directions for the Holidays. We enjoyed torturing our son on Christmas morning. That face could NOT be faked…he was just as annoyed as Ralphy when asked to try on his pink bunny suit.
We got a good laugh…and even had our matching pajamas. Yep, we were that family this year.
Of course…my main request for gifts were fitness related. I got a new piece of fitness equipment from Marta, and some new tennies from the hubby. If you remember these from our favorite things post. These are the shoes that I put on that list. He was a good husband and must have read the blog that day.
Things have been crazy over at Four Fit Sisters. All of the sisters are getting ready to start up their first challenge of the new year. I hope that you got in. Also, Maggie is doing an amazing giveaway. She is giving away a $120 month supply of Shakeology. Enter as many times as you want. The details can be found on her facebook page here.
Good Luck. Can’t wait to get back into the swing of blogging and back into our normal routine. We have missed you.
