Fit by Nature 12/30

Meet at Van Raalte Farms tomorrow.  We will be parking on the 24th street side and if you want to bring a sled along, go for it.  We may or may not be sledding based on conditions…wearing snow pants might works too:-)!

It is supposed to be pretty cold so please dress in lots of layers, neck warmers and something to breathe into covering your face.  Double socks and gloves or mittens that are warm.  Remember there is no bad weather, just bad clothing.

Tis' That Time of Year again, Treats and Sweets, Presents under the Tree, Family Get together's and Most importantly the celebration of Christs Birth. 

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulder. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

Here are just a few fun pictures from the Holidays. It was a great Holiday season with many laughs and fun times with family and friends. We are so blessed

Holidays, Running, Coffee, #RWrunstreak, Etc...

Holiday Weekend

My Thanksgiving Holiday started on Wednesday, I took off an extra day of work so that I could hang out with my sister. My Day started with a run +Downtown Holland, Riley and I got in a nice 4 miles, it was cold and snowy and kind of felt like Christmas but it was fun and felt good.

My morning started out with an hour on the elliptical to prepare for a day of lots of yummy food. 

We had Thanks Giving Lunch by Travis parents house followed by the Lions Vs. Packers Game in the afternoon. 

Dinner/snacks by my parents and National Lampoons- Christmas Vacation :) 

Does Your Family have fun little Traditions that they do over the Holidays like watching a movie or doing something fun? 

Black Friday

Do you go Black Friday shopping ? I am not really into all the Crazy Black Friday shopping so I slept in and went for Run and then went to S&S fitness for my black Friday/post Thanksgiving workout. +S&S Fitness, it was a great workout we did some cardio to burn off those mashed potatoes and a little toning to rev those muscles into fat burning mode. Sorry no pictures I was not in a picture taking mood. 

What did you do for Holiday Fitness ? 


This weekend just keeps going on and on I LOVE it :) 5 Mile Morning Run, Coffee with a Friend from High School @JP's Coffee and a little shopping +Downtown Holland for small business Saturday. 

I am also loving all time have been able to spend with my Golden Riley :) Plus I got to see what she does all day when we are not home. Which is napping and watching whats going on our street out the window.
