Christmas and Exercise Don’t Mix
First off, Merry Christmas to all those who celebrate it. I know I do. We opened presents this morning and I am the lucky recipient of an autographed Chad Pennington, New York Jets football jersey. Here’s to hoping he remains on the Jets next year. The only time I can recall exercising during Christmas is back in high school, during my football playing days. That’s when I craved exercise like a fat kid craving a double fudge chocolate cake.
That fire I once possessed has died done a bit, but not completely. It has slowly been rekindling over the past few months. All of which still doesn’t help me with wanting to workout today. I think I’m going to just take the day off and relax. Although, I’m heading over to a barbecue and may partake in some backyard ball games. Barbecue you ask? In Winter? Well, it’s about 75 degrees outside and it’s Florida. So that explains it. That will be the only exercise I do today, if at all.
I don’t think any public gyms, i.e. Bally’s Total Fitness, Equinox, Crunch, 24 Hour Fitness, are open today. Most folks just take the day to spend it with their families and friends. I suggest you do the same and enjoy it. Today is the third of the 4 Big Holidays, but it’s turning out to be a manageable one. No major eating binges!
Once again, Merry Christmas and be safe!
