San Antonio is one of those must-visit destinations during the holiday season, so when we went downtown this week, I decided to wear a little understated holiday attire and let the city do the talking.  

I went for a gray silk sleeveless tunic by Eileen Fisher, Joan Vaas black leggings, and a Talbots white sweater.  The embellishments were my Christmas brooch from the deceased Coldwater Creek, and these new shoes I found at Marshall’s.
It worked perfectly to go from work out on a date with my husband which included dining at the Market on Houston  Restaurant in the Gunter Hotel, and the stage production of White Christmas at the Majestic Theater.

We had a lovely evening and I liked my understated look!
We had a lovely evening and I liked my understated look!  It has been such a busy week which included a workout with my strength training class called The Twelve Days of Christmas…in 35 minutes…here is the workout
1 100 meter run
2 walking lunges (or squats)
3 Pull ups
4 Pike Push ups
5 Cleans (I used a 35 pound bar…a whimp compared to some of the ladies in my class)
6 Kettle Bell swings
7 Ball Slams
8 Knees to Bar (pull ups)
9 Goblet quats
10 Situps
11 Burpees
12 Thrusters
I am still in recovery….but I made it through to 11.  Remember this is after the song the 12 Days of Christmas, so you are constantly going back and repeating what was done before.  AND my class is at 5AM.  I don’t think I have ever been that tired after working out…but I know it eventually pays off!
Now, for my own 12 Days of Christmas Celebration…we are on #10
10. I love Christmastime because of where I live in San Antonio…it is a beautiful celebration along our Riverwalk.
