Whew! I hope you are beating the heat and dodging the crazy weather that some parts of the country are experiencing. In my neck of the woods, it’s hot–though I feel like it’s cooler than last year–and threatening with monsoons (’tis the season for them). We’ve had a few major flash floods already this month alone.
This doesn’t mean that you can’t get out and be active, however. There are plenty of ways to do exercise at home. Body weight exercises that incorporate functional training are excellent ways to stay in shape and prevent injury from common, everyday movements. There are also plenty of at-home workout websites with relatively decent monthly fees for those looking to mix things up without a whole lot of equipment.
If you do work out at home, keep in mind the common hazards of doing so. Carpet is a major tripping hazard, as are shoelaces, toys, pets, and even kids. If your household is anything like mine, my daughter wants to be at the center of the action. This is why I do my workout during nap time! Did I mention, nap times are wonderful? You can get things finished (like blog posts, for instance ;))
Below are listed the articles and recipes that I’ve been squirreling away for you. I hope you enjoy them and find them useful in mixing up your regular regimen.
