Keeping Fit for the Holidays

My husband and I went for a walk in the freezing cold the other night just to burn out some calories. That's one of the problems during winter because your activities outside is limited unless you are doing a True Weight Loss program, you're good. Hubby and I have a blowflex and treadmill at our own home but since we are staying here at my father-in-law's house for the holidays, we kinda ignore our urge to exercise lol.

Anyhow, I am sharing this plant (I am not sure of its name) that my father-in-law has inside his house to my Today's Flower and Shadow Shot Sunday (my first time participating to SSS) entries. Before we left going to Korea, this plant was still small but when we came back it becomes so bushy and has flowers in it.

Hope you guys are having a nice holidays at your end. Don't forget to have a little exercise to burn those calories you will gain with the festive menus in the table.

  5. It is an anthirium! Not like the red ones you might be used to seeing, but it is a variety of anthirium.
    Nice shadow shot!

  12. The shadow inside the flower is nice. It seems warm, perhaps fuzzy. Which is the beauty of a shadow like this, we use our imaginations and wonder what it just might be...

  13. I think it is a Peace Lily but I haven't seen one so green before. It is handsome whatever he name.

    Happy Holidays.

  21. Years ago I sent my husband out to buy some of these anthirium in red ...he came back with a Jaguar (not the animal, a used car) and no flowers. Still a joke at our house. The car was a money pit!

  23. That's a beautiful plant. It looks like a peace lily (Spathiphyllum) although the bloom turns white on those. You can go here to see if you think it's the same as your plant. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spathiphyllum

  24. Mabuti naman at nakapag eexerise pa kayo ni John maski makapal na ang yelo diyan. Mabuti talaga na mapagpag ang katawan para hindi mag accumulate ang fat sa katawan. Ang mga bata eh hindi na kailangang mag exercise kasi takbo naman sila nang takbo at laro nang laro, lol. Pati si Champ ay kasama nilang nakapaglalaro at exercise. Thanks for the post. Merry Christmas to you all. God bless you all always.
