Fitness & Motherhood

It's hard to believe that the holidays are right around the corner! Everyone loves the excitement of food, family and friends during the holidays, but the holiday season can also be overwhelming. With gift buying and wrapping, in-law visits and the baking of dozens of Christmas cookies there are also plenty of reasons to stress. As mom's we always seem to have a million things going on and the holidays are no different.


To keep the holidays enjoyable and tension free follow this 15 minute workout that can be done anywhere. The great thing about this workout is that it can be done multiple times during the day or week, whenever the stress starts sneaking up on you. Once you complete your workout not only does your body feel great but your mind is refreshed.


Before starting this workout do your best to clear your mind and relax.

3 Minute Brisk Walk or Cardio Warm-Up (Jumping Jacks, Mountain Climbers, Squats)
2 Minute Down Dog Pose
2 Minute Up-Dog Pose

Now CHS is looking to find adoptive families in the area who need support before they hit a crisis point. “It doesn’t matter which agency they adopted from, or when that happened,” said Buckheit. “We want to offer a lifetime of support to adoptive families in the Fredericksburg area, especially those who haven’t been aware of our services in the past.”
