Winter Wellness Gear and Tips

2015 is hosting a handful of winter wellness/fitness challenges for people of all shapes and abilities. Moreover, the winter brings a whole new level of procrastination so to keep up with my winter fitness challenges I need great gear to guide my lack of motivation out the door.

This Christmas/holiday season give the right (and useful) gift to your athletic loved one or marathon running family member. 
The Ultimate Armband 
The fitness gear that I am sharing with you is the Sport i-25 Armpocket and I had a nice test run with it so, I'm sure you'll love it! The touch screen protector was responsive; however, I did have to tap twice or pause mid-run to get my phone to respond. The memory foam and comfy strap curves perfectly to my body. I slipped the armband; with my phone, keys, and granola bar inside, before heading off for my run (After rereading this post, I can see that maybe it was silly of me to carry a granola bar. I like to be prepared for everything and eat my post workout snack like right after finishing my run). The band is light and not a cumbersome addition to my run.

I used to think that running bands were bulky, would be cumbersome, and the wide velcro strap would irritate my skin. Well all of that is FALSE! This is not the case with Armpocket. The Armpocket is such an easy addition to my running regiment and super helpful with letting me listen to my music with my phone and carry essentials.

Reasons to adore the Sport i-25 Armpocket:
Water Resistant
Machine Washable
Headphone Music Port
Touch Control Window
Eco-Friendly Product
Quality, Durable Construction
No-Slip Memory Foam
Comfortable Vented Strap

Product details:
Price: $35
Colors: Black/Pink/Yellow/Orange/Red/Purple/Splash
Strap length: adjustable (the Armpocket website has the dimensions of the strap and it is adjustable for your liking)

Shirts: New Balance // Bottoms: C9 by Champion

Before I go, I just wanted to share some winter wellness tips:

Boston Family Fun: Shop CambridgeSide Galleria

My mind has been so preoccupied with school work and professional development that holiday's and special events totally sneak up on me! Last minute gift shopping and 30 minute casseroles are my expertise. So when I finally get a holiday break I don't know what to do with my free time. How does one celebrate the holiday's when daunting to-do list or heartache deadlines are no where in site?

Thankfully there are so many great places around Boston that are offering merry celebrations for the entire family; namely, The CambridgeSide Galleria Mall.

Via Chowing Down blog
The Galleria has offered so many versatile holiday events that I don't have to look anywhere else. From breakfast with Santa to Yankee Swaps with my amiable crew of Boston bloggers, The CambridgeSide Galleria has been the real MVP this holiday season.

Via The Second Lunch Blog
The California Pizza Kitchen cheffed up some delicious appetizers, drinks, and the mall set up activities for a blogger Yankee Swap. About 30 bloggers enjoyed an evening of switching and snagging drool worthy gifts from the event sponsors. Thank you Blog and Tweet Boston for putting together an amazing event, as well as the Galleria Mall marketing team for working so hard to set everything up. 

What does your family do to celebrate the holidays? Comment below
