Congratulations to the Winners of the 12 Days of Fitness Challenge!

I can’t believe the holidays have already come and gone! I just got back from Oahu where I spent Christmas with R and his rather large family. The trip was a balanced combination of relaxation, chaos, excitement, food, and workouts. I just wish there had been a little bit more sun! It probably rained 80% of the time. That was an unexpected bummer since I’ve only been to Hawaii during the spring and summer months. But, hey, it was still vacay, so I can’t really complain!   After 10 days of island life, I am happy to be home and getting back into my routine!

It sure seems like it! I’m so impressed with your hard work and dedication to the challenge. I can’t get over how awesome all of your check-ins have been. Interval training is getting a lot of press for it’s fat-burning results. And, that’s because it works! Interval training is a series of “pushes” and active rests that take your heart rate up near its max and back down to equilibrium.
