Santa has the sweetest life. He does literally nothing for 364 days (I’m sorry, but we all know the elves do the grunt work and Mrs Claus is the brains of the operation), then pulls one all-nighter that basically consists of flying around the world with intermittent breaks to eat some cookies, thus cementing his place as most loved human on the planet. Honestly it’s kind of BS if you ask me.
But I’ve gone off on a tangent and should probably start again.
You may have noticed that the world has really taken its Christmas-ing up a notch in the last few days. And with only nine sleeps left until Santa come down the chimney to
take all the credit deliver the pressies, what an opportunity we have to take advantage of the Christmas cheer with this very special little Christmas workout that I’ve come up with. Basically it’s a drinking game, except heaps more fun (?? maybe??) because you get to do exercises instead of shots, which means you’ll wake up with a tighter booty instead of a whopping great hangover. You’re welcome.
So here’s how it works...
There are a bunch of rules that you have to follow (below). Each rule has an exercise attached to it. Tally up your exercises throughout the day, and complete them before going to bed that night. [If you have a social event on that inhibits your abilities to safely complete your exercises at night, you can roll them over to the next day – ouch!].
When you hear a Christmas song: 5 squats
When that Christmas song is being sung by Mariah Carey: 20 burpees
When someone tells you to have a Merry/Happy/Good Christmas: 10 lunges
When you walk past a bunch of drunk people having their Christmas party: 10 push ups
When your kid asks you how many sleeps until Santa comes: 10 tricep dips
When your kid pulls the Christmas tree over on himself: 30 mountain climbers (and maybe secure it better next time, yeah Jess?)
When you buy something online: 5 supermans
When that something is for yourself: 20 high knees (also, good on you, you deserve it)
OK so your challenge between now and Christmas Day is to implement your Christmas Workout. That’s 8 days of bonus exercise for you, Team. Think of it as my gift to you.
You’re so very welcome! xx
