Day #23 – Dear Fitness Santa…I can explain!

Dear Fitness Santa,

Um, I know I’m supposed to eat clean ALL the time and exercise at 100% strength and keep to a fitness blogging schedule and stuff, but I’ve been good like 95% 91.2% of the time all year, so here’s what I would like for Christmas:

Smart Phone.  It doesn’t even have to be an iPhone5 (because those bad boys are on back order for like a month) but a smart phone will help me take clear, crisp pictures for my blog and ooh, ahh, video clips I can edit on the phone and amazing apps that will help chart my fitness progress, offer me better food alternatives when I go grocery shopping, and I will finally get to figure out what the hell Angry Birds are and why they’re so popular.  In short, I would like to join the rest of the population in the new millennium.

6 Pack Meal Bag.  Once I get my personal trainer certification, that means I’m going to be a working woman again.  Yay!  This lunch organizer is perfect for up-keeping my bodybuilding meal plan.  It has three compartments for my food, side bags for water bottles and protein shakes and a top section for protein bars and supplements.  And, it comes in pink.  You can check it out on

The Vibram Five Fingers Shoe.  Yes, this looks like a really weird glove for your foot, but it is designed to help your feet function the way they were meant to function.  The rubber sole helps you to grip the floor.  I see a lot of runners use this type shoe, but I want the Jaya shoe specifically for my leg/glutes workouts.  Clearly I’m ok doing the heavy lifting (400 lunges a day with a 50 lb. bar) so I’d like the proper footwear to support the rest of me.   Check it out on

New workout clothes.  Specifically, I really like the Tek Gear Yoga Racerback Tank at Kohl’s.  It comes in gray and pink.  Which color do I want?  Yes. 🙂 

Wii Just Dance 3.  This is more of a family gift, since the kids and I like to have dance offs sometimes.  It’s a fun way to get the kids moving and will make me look less dorky on the dance floor when I go to my niece’s wedding.

Well, Fitness Santa, I promise to be really, really, really nice and I promise to eat all of my vegetables and I won’t eat any chocolate chip cookies unless they are made with quinoa flour, so please, please, please bring me at least 91.2% of these gifts.

Thank you,


P.S. – I know you are trying to be healthier too so I will leave you a protein shake instead of milk. (c) 2012 Lisa Traugott.  All rights reserved.  No portion of this blog, including any text, photographs, and artwork, may be reproduced or copied without written permission.
