I woke up this morning and realized two things:

  1. It’s December 1
  2. I haven’t done fitness on this blog and my social feeds in awhile

That means it’s the perfect time to kick off a new fitness routine this month. Join me overThe other day someone asked me what habit I’d like to change in 2018. I said I’d like to add more mid-day movement. With a new month upon us, I decided why wait until Jan 1 to make a change? That’s why today I kicked off #HolidayFitBall, my December fitness series featuring workouts done with a medicine ball. No ball? No problem! Plenty of ways to still play along. AND join me every Friday this month for Friday Facebook Live Fitness at 1pm EST on my Mandy Enright, MS, RDN, RYT – Nutrition Nuptials Facebook page. Comment below if you’re going to play along! the next 31 days for some fitness fun! And because I love a good prop, I’m adding in a ball to all this month’s workouts. Hey, it’s the holidays so why not have a ball?!?! Continue reading “#HolidayFitBall: December Fitness”

The holidays are intended to be a fun time for couples.  Buying presents for each other. Going to parties. And spending time with family. However, over the years, both Mr E and myself experienced holiday grief.  Two years ago, Mr E’s mom passed away a few days before Christmas, after losing his father 16 months prior.  And exactly 1 month ago today, I was forced to say an unexpected goodbye to my father a few days before Thanksgiving.  You know what’s not fun? Losing a parent right before a holiday, forced to celebrate the holiday, and then hold a funeral in the days after.  So what is the best way to nourish grief around the “happiest time of the year”?
