Workout Wednesday

quote2

I love this quote, because it is very true.  If I have to take off working out on a regular workout day I go nuts.  My body craves the workout, and yours will too!

Resolution Run

I started the New Year off with a 5K yesterday.  It was my New Years Resolution Run hosted by For the Love of the Kids.   I had to do my 5K at the gym on a treadmill since it was a wonderful 13 degrees out with crazy winds.  My run started off great, my breathing was perfect, and everything felt great.  Then, at 2 miles my right butt cheek cramped up on me, and to make things even more fun, a couple of seconds later my right boob started cramping (since my mastectomy, my chest muscles like to cramp up out of nowhere).  I can only imagine how amazing I looked trying to nonchalantly massage out my cramps in my boob and butt.  Thankfully there was less than a mile to go, so I slowly jogged to the imaginary finishline on my treadmill.  It wasn’t the greatest run, but I loved starting out the year with one of my 13 in 2013 races and one of my 5 by the 5th races!

oranges

Guess what is back in season!?!  Cara Cara oranges and Sugar Belles!!  These are my favorite oranges, and they are beyond sweet.  I have been eating at least 3 a day.  They are just that good!  I highly suggest you head down to your local grocery store and grab some today.

Workout Wednesday

This workout is mostly done on a stability ball, so you will be using your core to help keep your body balanced.  There are links below for 2 new workout moves I have not posted before.  If you are unsure about how to do any of the other exercises, check my Exercise Term Glossary Page.  You will complete 3 rounds of this circuit with 60 second recoveries between each exercise.  Remember to stretch after!

      It was all I could do not to laugh at myself when it was happening. I’m sure I looked like I was having more of a private moment that getting cramps out 🙂

      Thank you 🙂
      The Sweet Belles are just beyond sweet, you have to try them!
      Stability balls are on sale right now at Target. They are pretty cheap, and they are great for working out. They really make your core muscles work to keep you stable.
