Yes, I’m a few days late. But better late than never..
I hope you all had an amazing Christmas Eve and Day! I filled my two days off of work with friends, family, and of course a great workout. Christmas Eve fell on a Sunday this year, so I spent the morning at church with my extended church family. Afterwards, I hit the gym bringing my A game and my Santa hat. I got to spend some quality time with Nathen Mixon at one of my favorite LA Fitness locations in the South Loop of Chicago. It was nice to get away from the office for a day and get some different views while lifting.
After a good sweat sesh, we headed over to my dad’s house for some quality Christmas Eve dinner. Thus begun the holiday eating binge. We ended the night with some Beauty and the Beast (original Disney version) and It’s a Wonderful Life (classic Christmas movie).
The next day was Christmas, and since the gym was closed I got my workout in by carrying a heavy load of laundry over to my dad’s house (I asked first). I got there early to help him prepare for the Christmas Day feast. About 14 people or so showed up, many cousins, aunts and uncles. A few came in from out of town, so it was great to see everyone.
Nathen even remembered almost everyone’s name afterwards, and I learned some new tricks to remembering names since I meet about 30 to 50 new people everyday at my new job. After eating way too much food, we headed out to see the new Jumanji movie which was awesome! Overall, I had a wonderful Christmas surrounded by family and friends. I hope you also had a great holiday surrounded by friends and family. Or perhaps just a relaxing one.
