It’s December! I know I think/say this seemingly every month, but I kind of can’t believe how quickly the previous month flew by. December is Birthday Month for me, so I’m in for plenty of celebrating with that, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve. It’s a little chaotic, but I love it!

There’s been a post circulating on Instagram that sums up my current attitude about December…it equates this month to the final chapter of the book that is 2014. How great is that? There’s no reason to wait until the end of the month to make, set, or start on goals, and that’s exactly what I’m doing. Yesterday, I started Barre3’s 28 to Great program. I was able to score an amazing deal on their package of DVDs, a 15-day online membership, and a core ball through Living Social. I’m totally all in–I weighed myself, took before photos, and wrote down my measurements. Today is day two of 28, and I’m set to finish the program ON my birthday.

Another thing I’m tackling this month is the awesome yoga challenge posted above! One of my favorite insta girls and bloggers, Gabi of @gabibaughn_fitness and baughnblog.wordpress.com, introduced me to this December yoga challenge! As you can see, it’s called #JUSTBEPRESENT {isn’t that the cutest ever?!} and is being put on by Alo Yoga, Kino MacGregor, and Kerri Verna. I’m a super-ultra beginner when it comes to yoga, so attempting these poses is definitely out of my comfort zone and expertise. Super jazzed to try them out, though! A part of me has always wanted to be a proper yogi! Anyway, if you repost the above image on Instagram, follow @aloyoga, @kinoyoga, and @beachyogagirl, tag some friends who you’d like to do the challenge with, and take a photo or video of your daily poses and use the hashtag #justbepresent, you’ll be instantly entered to win daily surprises from Alo Yoga! Throughout the project, Kino will be posting advanced pose options and Kerri will offer modifications for beginners. It’s perfect for squeezing in a little casual yoga, adding mindfulness and presence to your daily routine, and potentially winning some prizes to spice up your December!

It’s going to be a busy month for sure, but it’s also going to be awesome. Happy December, babes!
