Hello My Dear Peaches,
I hope you are all enjoying the holidays. If your holidays are anything like mine, I know that can be hard. I am actually enjoying them this year though! My tip for those of you who always end up stressed or angry (or both) throughout the holidays is to try your very best to let go of what you had envisioned and just make the best of what actually is. I know that sounds horrible but trust me, this will make a world of difference.
Any late December birthday’s reading? If so, you have probably let go of having an actual celebration for it along time ago and are just thankful for the people in your life who actually take time away from the holiday hustle and bustle to give you a birthday wish and perhaps a gift not wrapped in holiday paper. My family is actually wonderful at doing this! Each year both my family and Jason’s family are so sweet to single out the 20th as my day and make me feel special even though it’s only 5 days away from Christmas. Except for Mom, but that is because her birthday is the 27th and we decided last year to celebrate our birthdays together after the new year! We still give each other a birthday wish on the actual day though.
Anyway, so my 35th birthday was Wednesday and my Dad got me a Fitbit.
As you know, I am not working out at at the moment and now have a super relaxed approach to food and fitness. So where does a Fitbit fit in now? I have even thought about getting a Fitbit in the past but decided against it because I thought it might be easy to obsess. And the truth is, I would have back then. But now I am at a place where I am definitely not a fitness fanatic, but I do know the importance of staying healthy. The Fitbit has been a great way to make sure that I am staying active enough even though I am not doing formal workouts and am also sitting and writing for hours a day. I am getting all the activity I need just in living life! We all have heard that we should park further away or take the stairs to burn a few extra calories. Well the Fitbit has shown me that these few extra calories burned here and there really DO add up and can equal a full workout at the end of the day!
So if you are not into gyms or sweaty workouts, maybe give the Fitbit a try. I think you might be surprised at how useful it is!
Nevertheless, I hope that you all get something you find useful or just flat out enjoy over the holidays. Christmas is not about gifts but if you get them, it’s nice to at least enjoy them right?
Merry Christmas Peaches!
Do you have a Fitbit or something like it like an Apple Watch? How do you like it?
What is a gift that you were surprised by how much you ended up liking it?
