Spoiler, I love playing Santa. Now I know the holiday season isn’t just about the gifts but I really really love finding the perfect goodies to share with friends and families, spreading as much holiday cheer as humanly possible. And if I’m going to be honest, Brandon is my favorite person to shop for. Since our first Christmas together (we’re going on year #3!), I’ve done a 12 Days of Christmas theme gifting B with twelve presents, one a day leading up to the 25th. Don’t even get me started on how I’ll be with my kids.
Now that Thanksgiving is officially behind us and Christmas is less than a month away,, I’ve already started making my list of 12 Days gifts for Brandon. I want to focus more on sentimental gifts and creating memories so I thought I’d kick things off a little early with a gift that ties into a big part of our journey this year.
At the start of 2018, B and I were both the most out of shape we’ve ever been. We made the decision to get back on track and make some big changes – and it’s been an amazing journey. Together, we made daily gym dates, cooked dinner together, motivated the other when one of us wasn’t feeling up to it that day and began to change our lives for the better. We’ve lost a combined 60+ pounds and have found something we can both be super passionate about together. I’m pretty proud of both of us and can’t wait to see where this adventure continues to take us.
As an early present, I turned to Shoes.com to pick up a new pair of kicks for Brandon. He’s completely burned out a few of his go-to pairs at the gym and I knew this was something that would continue to keep him motivated to get in his workouts. Guess what? Shoes.com is a firm believer that when you gift a pair, you get something in return, too. I couldn’t agree more. Not only do I love giving Brandon something that I know he’ll love and that will help keep him on track of his goals, but I may or may not have snagged a pair for myself. Santa gets gifts, right? I’m so excited to rock our new gear together and hit a bootcamp class before the holiday season really ramps up.
With one month left in the year, we’re already talking about goals for 2019 and you better believe we’ve got some exciting fitness items added to our list. To help keep us both motivated and on track, I am making the executive decision we might need a few more shoes in our arsenal!
