6 ways I stay balanced

If you forgot to join me last week for the #BOSUStrong challenge or just weren’t up for the cardio, make sure you join me this week as it’s all about the balance! We’re standing on one leg, lunging, and BOSU squatting our way through the week.



But balance means more than just being able to stand on one leg, it also means being able to do what you love while making healthy choices at the same time. It means putting in the work and still finding time for family. Or eating the chocolate cake with peanut butter icing but balancing it out with a 15 mile run. Or getting on the trainer and sweating in front of the tv or strength training at home when you can’t make it to the gym.

Here are the 6 ways I stay balanced - what are yours?



I make time for myself by sitting on the deck.
My favorite me time is shopping.
My rule when it comes to a balanced diet is 80/20. Eat healthy most of the time, but allow myself that one cheat here and there. Otherwise I find myself just going into a junk food coma.
I make fitness a priority by scheduling it (but also allowing flexibility).
When I get stressed or overwhelmed, my go to is to go for a run!
I do a calendar to help my family stay balanced.

Bonus:
Here are my fave 6 moves to help improve your balance:
  1.  boat pose
  2.  wheel
  3.  down dog
  4.  warrior pose
  5.  camel pose
  6.  arching three-legged dog
