This month Dr. Boston wrote two Holiday songs to celebrate the season!

Song 1

The Twelve Exercises of Christmas 

(to the tune of Partridge in a Pear Tree)
On the 12th day of Christmas
Exercise is key:
Twelve Biceps curling
Eleven Calves a-Raising
Ten Legs a-Leaping
Nine Tummies Crunching
Eight Hamstrings Stretching
Seven Triceps Dipping
Six Arms a-Lifting
Five Second Plank
Four Jumping Jacks
Three Side Lunges
Two Mountain Climbers
And a Deep Squat Bending My Knees

Song 2

Holiday Belly

(to the tune of the Dreidel Song)
I have a little belly
I made it out of cake
And when it’s full and ready
Then, I shall dance it away.
 
Oh, belly, belly, belly
I made it out of cake
And when it’s full and ready
Then, I shall dance it away.
 
I have a lovely body
With legs so strong and lean
And if I’m not too tired
I walk around the block again
 
Oh, belly, belly, belly
I made it out of cake
And when it’s full and ready
Then, I shall dance it away.
 
The moral of the story is that when you over-eat during the holidays, build in some extra dancing or walking to offset the calories.
