Since my BF is away for the whole month and my brother is on Medical leave do to his back injury I will be spending Christmas day at home with my brother. I will do my steps and QFC challenges plus make a very healthy Chicken dinner for the two of us. No gifts this year, no money for them so just a nice quiet day inside.

Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! emoticon

It will be the same as any day. The holiday's aren't really that big of a deal for us. Since none of my family cares to get together with each other, it's just me, DH and the boys.

Walk the dogs but am attempting to switch to softline and get off the registers, so that should substantially increase my steps.

I'm working so I'll get at least 8,000. It should be more than that.

I have three levels of steps that I use to keep on track. I have my ABSOLUTE MINIMUM steps for any day and usually reach that. I have my BUSY DAY BUT WALKING ANYWAY steps that is between my minimum and my REGULAR DAY GOAL STEPS.

I'm working toward BUSY DAY steps as that is a great goal. It is a holiday and I have many things to do. I'm working, so time is limited. I'm not going to feel guilty if I don't get my maximum steps on a busy day.

Part of my lifestyle change is to not obsess over some things. I expect to do my best (Maximum) most days but am not going to fall apart if I don't reach that goal, hence the lesser goals. I also want to allow for health issues and travel and family time.

Christmas day is one of those.

Karen, good for you walking outside. It is hard and I know you are dedicated to walking every day. That is a great thing to do and you are my hero. Keep moving. Let us know how you do in the cold with your walk.

Thankfully I have a few long stretches in my house that I can walk. I'll rise early & do as many steps as I can before the kids come over.

If the weather isn't too nasty, then I will exercise outside before church. If it's too cold/wet, then I will do some stairs in my house.

The truth of the matter is that you can always run faster. The fact of the matter is that sometimes the truth hurts!

I will fit in a couple of short walks in, of course, it depends on the weather since I won't be able to use the treadmill.

It is a Christmas tradition for my kid and I to take a walk after dinner on Christmas day except when we have blizzards which thankfully are rare on Christmas.

My daughter and I went to KoKo fitness yesterday for a free trial, It's a good concept but the whole time I was on the treadmill I was thinking that I have a Teadclimber at home and it's paid for and "free" not $60 monthly, I also have the Kettleworx Kettle bell system that I do enjoy doing, also "free" and paid for.

The class gave me motivation to work out at home.

I am the first one to admit that I haven't been 100% committed to stepping. Thanks to our illustrious leader, Krys, I am going to do 10K per day as of today through the month. This includes Christmas Day. The mall will be closed and it will be all done outdoors in the cold and hopefully with snow on the ground and bright sun shine.

What are your plans for that day? Are you taking it off or are you making certain that you are including stepping in your day?
