Gateway to Summer – and a Fitness Friday Workout

Yippee! Memorial Day Weekend is just about here! This is one of my favorite times of year…it’s like the gateway to summer. BBQ’s on every block, sunshine, and lots of outdoor fun. This weekend is going to be especially fun for me, because we are finally hosting some friends and family at our new house! One of my high school girlfriends is coming tonight, my in-laws will be in town tomorrow, and my family is coming tomorrow to stay the rest of the weekend! I can’t even wait! I’ve got treats baking in the oven already, and I have some last minute grocery shopping to do this morning and then I’ll be ready to play! We’ll be heading up to the Sand Dunes, enjoying some local food and backyard BBQ’s, I’ll get to show my dad around my favorite running trails and overall have a great time having everyone together. Can you tell I’m excited?!


Before we head out to our weekend festivities, you might be trying to fit in a quickie workout.

This LEGS & ABS workout takes just 20 minutes and is great on its own, or a good supplement to a cardio/run day. The best part is, you can do it pretty much anywhere. Use a bosu ball and fit ball if you have it – if you don’t…don’t worry about it! Alternate between a leg exercise and an ab exercise, performing each one for 1 minute. Try not to take breaks between exercise. When you have completed all 10 exercises, rest 1 minute, then repeat.
