The 12 Days of Fitmas

The 12 days of fitmas badgeChristmas is a time for eating, drinking and being merry but if I don’t do something (anything) fitness wise I feel really sluggish and regret it when the new year comes!

I know 10 star jumps are not the equivalent to the massive piece of cake i’m having for pudding BUT it’s better than nothing!

So I have come up with “The 12 Days of Fitmas” to justify the copious amounts of food and drink I will be consuming this holiday!ย This seriesย will run alongside (you guessed it) the 12 days of Christmas and starts 25th December – 5th January

Everyday a new workout will be posted! (I will try and get them linked up here asap – but forgive me it is the holidays!)

SO you can get a head start on your fitness new years resolutions with The 12 Days of Fitmas…

    Hi Charlotte, I think this is such a great idea! I saw lots of your tweets over Christmas and was so inspired. I would have joined in if it hadnt been for awful morning sickness in this pregnancy too!

      Thanks lovely – take it easy, you have an excuse, you’re pregnant! plus I know exactly how bad morning sickness can be, I had it for 2 trimesters! glad you were inspired though ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

    Great idea! I hate that post-Christmas ‘I’ve over-eaten’ feeling. I can’t promise to take part as we’re moving house between now and new year but I’m sure we’ll be getting lots of exercise in by unpacking boxes ๐Ÿ™‚ #KCACOLS

    • Charlotte (#)

      Wow you’re braver than me! hopefully it’s not too stressful and definitely a good workout ๐Ÿ™‚ Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year – Thanks for commenting xx

    I was hoping you had something to kick off with right now. With the amount of chocolate, cake and xmas lunches out at work at the moment I am already feeling sluggish! However I popped over to your netball section instead to get some tips ๐Ÿ™‚ Snapped my Achilles whilst playing in a league match on court last year and still not back playing – been told I can’t again but we shall wait and see. Have a good Xmas #KCACOLS

    December 22nd, 2015

    Ohh this is a great idea. I will pop over again to check out the workouts but don’t think I can commit to doing any exercise on Christmas day..that is very much a day for eating! Good luck xx #KCACOLS

    • Charlotte (#)
      December 22nd, 2015

      Haha let me know how you get on :p I will be working out in between stuffing my face and drinking so hopefully I don’t start too early :p xx

  • Silly Mummy (#)

    A good plan! When I used to work out, I would keep it up over Christmas, but now don’t even do it at the best of times! Happy Christmas! #justanotherlinky

    ooo great idea! i think a little bit of exercise every day is a great way of keeping fit over the festive period ๐Ÿ™‚ #KCACOLS

  • A Moment with Franca (#)
    December 21st, 2015

    This a great idea!! I’m in real need of loosing some weight and during Xmas and New Year is certainly the most difficult time of the year. I don’t think I will be starting now as I would like to enjoy and be relaxed during the holidays but I will definitely start a proper routine in January. More exercise together with a healthy eating!! Thanks so much for sharing this at #KCACOLS. I’m so happy to have you as my last guest co-host of 2015. Merry Xmas to you and your family and Happy New Year 2016. I hope to see you in the New Year! ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

    Hi Charlotte, starting twelve days of fitmas on Christmas day is a good idea. I do take a step back from working out over Christmas, I don’t stop, I just enjoy a bit of a slow down, but look forward to revving it back up in the New Year (or so I keep telling myself!).

    Wishing you a happy and fitmassy Christmas!

    This is a great idea, and I’d like to say I’ll be taking part but I am far too lazy to be honest!! Though my Christmas eating has already started so maybe I will feel differently when I can’t do my jeans up…. Becky x #KCACOLS

      December 21st, 2015

      Haha loving the honesty :p well if you change your mind you have 12 days (although a bit of insider scoop the earlier days are easier – after the new year it ramps up ;p) Have a great Christmas, thanks for commenting xx

    Great idea! And very welcomed.
    We’re a family of runners, and both our younglings have just started joining us on mini-runs around the streets. You’re right, nothing is quite going to counteract the calorific overload of this month, but just spending 20 mins darting around feels like something!

      aww that’s so lovely – we have been getting the children involved in parkrun which is exciting! running is my favourite but I can’t justify the hours over Christmas :p merry Christmas xx thanks for commenting

    This is an absolutely BRILLIANT idea. I’ll definitely be checking out all of these. I’ve done so well this year and have still a little way to go before I have the body I want, but I’m getting there. This is so helpful. Thank you! xxx #KCACOLS

    Great idea! I’ve been struggling to get back on slimming world since the summer. I’ve given up for Xmas but hoping to begin again in the new year. This would be great to go with it! #KCACOLS

    This is such a great idea I am desperate to get a bit fitter but I had a C Section 3 weeks ago and I am guessing I’ll need to wait another 6 weeks before I can get going again! Will definitely be referring back to this. Xxx #KCACOLS

    • Charlotte (#)
      December 20th, 2015

      yes definitely take it easy! but you can always do it afterwards to catchup :p haha look at me being pushy! Thanks for commenting! Have a great Christmas and congrats on the Bubba xx

    Good for you. You are a braver woman than I. I know I ought to do more but committing to something everyday over Christmas. I’m just not sure I have the stamina or time in the schedule. Mine will be a mix of running around after a toddler and lift glass to mouth, tip, release. Lower arm. #kcacols

      December 20th, 2015

    what a great idea, I hope you stick to it and inspire others too, I’d go mad without at least 30 mins exercise a day, it soon becomes a way of life and drug like! #KCACOLS
