30 Minute Medicine Ball Circuit

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend so far, and hopefully found some time for YOU this weekend. If not, maybe you can squeeze in a little “you time” this afternoon or evening. I’m hoping to cook a little tonight, and get a little exercising in. It feels great to start the week off fresh, and relaxed after allowing for “self-care” time. If you had an extremely busy weekend, I encourage you to find a little time for yourself during the week. Schedule it on your calendar! Put a reminder on your phone! Whatever you need to do to make sure you’re allowing time for yourself.

I thought I would share with you what will be doing in my group exercise class tomorrow afternoon! I really enjoy  my Monday class. There is a consistent group of girls that come each week. We have fun, work hard, and of course, always chat a bit. 🙂 This workout could totally be done at home, and the medicine ball is simply a suggestion (you certainly can do this routine without one). Maybe this could be your YOU time this week! I included links for a few of the exercises, please feel free to e-mail me with any other questions. 🙂

Have fun & have a great week -hoping for double-digit temperatures this week!
