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 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 pedicures. Or eating the Oreo(s) but balancing it out with a spinach & kale smoothie.
Here are the 6 ways I stay balanced – what are yours?
  • I make time for myself by saying "no" when it's not in the best interest of me or my family.
  • My favorite me time is reading the latest "must read" book.
  • My rule when it comes to a balanced diet is nothing is a no in moderation.
  • I make fitness a priority by scheduling my workouts just like a meeting.
  • When I get stressed or overwhelmed, my go to is running. Miles make it melt away.
  • I do not enough, but changing things up to help my family stay balanced. This is how my little guy stays balanced.
