Ho ho ho!! I don’t know about you, but I always indulge a little bit during the holidays. And why shouldn’t I enjoy some yummy food? Christmas ham, ravioli, pecan pie, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, and mmmm Christmas sangria. They are all things I don’t really eat during the year, so at Christmas I taste a little bit of EVERYTHING. But what I don’t do is skimp out on my fitness routine. I know I will feel better if I keep up with my workouts, and this year I created a special bonus workout just for Christmas Eve! So if you’re looking for a way to prep for all of those extra calories, try out my 25 Days of Christmas Workout and then enjoy some pie for me!
25 Days of Christmas Workout
There are 25 moves, and each one has 25 reps. So that’s 25 squats, 25 pushups, 25 high knees, etc. When it comes to lunges, split squats, and things that use one leg at a time, you have the option to do 25 total OR 25 on each leg. I will be doing 25 of each leg because I really want to feel that burn!

Here’s a quick video to show you all of the moves, if you aren’t familiar with some of them. Feel free to modify any moves if you need to – such as tapping out your legs during jumping jacks, or dropping down to your knees for pushups or planks.
The moves alternate between lower body, upper body, cardio, and abs. If you need a breather, take a 25 second break after four moves. Time yourself and try to complete the entire workout as quickly as possible to really keep your heart rate up. How fast did you finish? Share your time in the comments below!
