‘Twas the night before Christmas and Pep had to go
He had to help Santa and he really missed snow.

“Coach, you taught me how to take care of my self
And how to be my own healthiest elf!
Eat breakfast, work out, and get plenty of sleep,
And take time in my day to stop and breathe deep.
Know that most of my cravings are when I am stressed
And trying to be perfect instead of my best.
Thank you for coaching me year after year
And getting Santa’s and my backside in gear!”

And with that Pep jumped up and ran out the door
Leaving glitter and kale leaves on my once clean gym floor.
But I heard him say as he dashed with great stealth,
“Merry Christmas to all, and to all best of health!”
