Exercising is something that both Michelle and I enjoy. It helps us feel healthy, gets rid of any stress we might be holding onto, and it gives us energy! Even though it is something we love doing… sometimes we need a little bit of a motivator to get to the gym.
Recently, we got new water bottles and it has been such a simple thing that has made our workouts a bit more exciting! Super Sparrow water bottles are sold on Amazon or on their site. We both decided on the standard mouth 25 oz size bottle and Michelle got Kylie the standard mouth 12 oz size too! Our water has stayed cold, we love the different accessories that come with it, and there are so many color choices!
Who actually has the time to work out today?! The day before Christmas brings on all the excitement, activities, and even stress – there leaves little room for a workout! But if you are a pro at time management and have a chance to make it to the gym, or if you are looking for something to help with you continue to procrastinate cooking/cleaning, we’ve got you covered! This workout was a complete kettlebell workout, and all exercises are easy to change out the kettlebell to a barbell if needed. We hope you have a great Christmas. Enjoy your time celebrating the birth of Jesus with your family and loved ones! We will see you back here next week!

Does anyone else ever find it hard to make it to the gym?! I am always more likely to commit when I have a class to take (which are nonexistent at this time) – which is one reason why I am so grateful for my sister! Having a workout buddy makes going to the gym that much more fun, and you can’t decide last minute to skip! Well, this week was one of those weeks for me and I was thankful that Michelle kept me going. Do you all have a workout buddy that you typically exercise with?

Exercising always helps us relieve a bit of stress! Enjoy your Thanksgiving with your family!
