Thank you to everyone who entered in my CLICK giveaway! I will announce the winner in tomorrow’s post.

 

Tuesday started pretty much like Monday. I got some work done early and then once my husband got home I headed to the gym.

He said he would run there and meet me.

Did I mention how badly I just want to be able to run again?

 

Today’s workout was much like yesterday.

I started with 20 minutes on the Arc Trainer after a warm up around the track.

I kept it a little easier today and kept the resistance pretty low. The main goal was just to sweat.

After I finished I walked for an easy 30 minutes around the track.

I am starting to see a repeat in my workouts.  I am getting tired of them, but my options are limited.

I just keep trying to keep eye on the prize and keep pushing forward.

 

After I finished my cardio for the day I headed to do a little strength training.

I don’t know if I have mentioned it on the blog before, but I have TERRIBLE balance. I am probably one of the clumsiest people you will meet.

I found a great exercise that not only works on my glutes but also helps my balance.

You only need one item:

A Bosu ball.

The exercise is very simple. You turn the ball upside down and slowly balance yourself on top of the ball.

Once you are on top you slowly and carefully do a normal squat.

I did three sets of 15. To make it a little more difficult I held a 15 lb medicine ball, you could also use a kettle bell or barbell.

It will take some practice at first, but once you get the hang of it is a great switch up to a typical squat.

 

Oh, and guess who came home last night.

Our precious Zoe! I was so excited to see her! We finally have the entire family home!

 

Do you have good balance? Do you do any exercises to work on it?
