Good morning everyone! Hope you all had awesome weekends!!! Mine was pretty laid back....I actually don't think that I really got out of the house much at all! I did have some fun kitchen adventures though...more on that later on this week!
Last week, I was looking to switch up my workout routine a little bit and decided to use the stability balls at the gym. I've never really done much with them, so I looked up some good exercises and incorporated them into my routine! This circuit is kind of ab-heavy and I was definitely sore the next day.
I love finding new exercises and really enjoyed this workout! I'd have to say that the stability ball russian twists were probably the hardest for me....I had to really work at not falling off of the exercise ball! haha
Do you like to use different equipment at the gym? What has been a tough exercise that you've learned recently?
This weekend was a good one for me. I really worked on letting go of some of my eating disordered behaviors and just had a great time with the family. First of all, we made chicago style pizza on saturday (with literally a POUND of cheese between the two pizzas we made) and I ate some without feeling icky about it. For a really long time, cheese has been a "fear food" of mine so it felt really great to have some. Another thing that I hadn't had in a while was ice cream, so when we were talking about dessert, I suggested going out and getting some. I got a chocolate cone, which I know doesn't exactly sound like a LOT, but for me, it was great. I'm not gonna say that any of that was easy to do, because it honestly wasn't. Especially since the next day I woke up feeling a little sluggish and bloated, the eating disordered side of me went into panic mode immediately. But I worked through it and am super proud of myself for this past weekend!
Well, that's about it for today.....I'll be back soon with a recipe (or two) for ya!
What did you do this weekend?
