And just like that, January is almost done. And what do you guys think – did it fly by or crawl along? I’m pretty torn on that one to be honest, and as I type this, it feels like New Year’s Eve was 100 years ago. As I’m sure lots of you did, I made a few health goals wayyyy back here at the beginning of the month, and how are those working out, you ask?
Well the “drink enough water” thing is still a work in progress (go figure), but in the exercise department, I’m happy to say that I’ve been moving this month. I’ve been a fan of pilates for years (check out my favorite local studio here), so I took a few classes at the beginning of January. But when my package ran out and I went to purchase more, I started to think about ways to get in a quick workout at home before taking Weeze on our daily 3-mile walks.
A quick scroll around Amazon and I had these weighted medicine balls and this exercise ball delivered to my door in two days. Of all the millions and squillions of things I’ve purchased on Amazon recently, these have by far been my favorite. It’s something easy I can do while the dogs run wild, with the tv or music on in the background for distraction, without ever leaving home. I’ve loved the weighted balls for both arm and core workouts, and they’ve been so key on the (usually rare) rainy days we’ve had around here lately – with four more coming at us this week.
I’ve found different exercises to do online but also just kind of mimic things that we do with weights in pilates classes. And so far, so good. Will I be going back to pilates or Orangetheory classes? Definitely. But now I can buy a few less classes and get in a quick workout whenever I can at home. I’d say that’s a definite Amazon win for the month. Hope everyone has a great rest of the week!
