Medicine Balls for down time.......

I don't always get to the gym and prefer to workout during the day so I do not take time away from my family.  I decided while cleaning out my exercise room that I should bring my exercise balls to work.  I have 5 lb. balls and when I have no clients or in between clients I can get in some strength training and it is working somewhat.  Yesterday I worked out my obliques, triceps and biceps getting in 4 sets of 20 reps each and today I was busy but I got in 4 sets of 20 ab crunches and 4 sets of 20 on my shoulders.  I am feeling it so I don't feel like I completely wasted a day without getting to the gym, not as much as I would have done at the gym but better than nothing.  I am going to bring my resistance bands in next week and just keep them at work so when I get no-showed or ahead or a client is running late I can definitely multi-task and not be bummed out if I don't have that full hour to commit to an actual trip to the gym.  My obliques are sore today and someone told me today my arms looked great, but I think it's because I was a little pumped up.  Hmmmmmm how can you multi-task this month?  Find a way and see how it works for you.  I feel pretty productive and in between clients I also swept the floor, watered and cleaned the leaves on my plants at the salon and dusted all the shelves.  All in a days work, a woman's work is never done!

I have no idea how you get so much done. I get a clean diaper on Jack and I feel exhausted.

That's great that you're getting your workout on even when you're not at the gym! I should take some tips from you for sure.
