Summertime Blues

We are deep in the throes of summer. The lack of structure and predictable schedule is throwing everyone in the house off. Even the dog. The kids are home almost everyday, or I’m racing to drop off/pick up for soccer camps and playdates. Trying to keep a normal workout schedule has been almost impossible.  Normally, I really like to change things up. I’ll try different strength or stability exercises at the gym, take a different kind of class, or set a big goal (half marathon anyone?). My body loves the challenges and my so easily bored mind loves the changes. But summer basically means stay at home mom time for me. I train clients early in the AM, evenings and weekends – all times the hubby is home.  And if I’m lucky enough to be feeding my creative side by auditioning or working on set, a sitter helps out. Otherwise, I’m entertaining the kids on these 90+ degree days.

So to give my brain a break – I stick to what I know really well and look at summer as a maintenance time instead of a building time for my body. I can’t give up working out all together, 1- You would probably find me in a straight jacket by September and 2- I run a fitness business. Staying in shape is kind of important for both my psyche and my bank account. So I do what’s easy for me, and can be done fast.

Here’s 3 things that I’m doing to stay in shape in between visits to the pool and froyo runs:

1- POLE! I love poling. It brings me joy, gives me a great workout, and I get some much-needed girlfriend time with people I love to be around. Big bang for the hour and half I leave the hubby with the kids. I’m physically renewed and joyful from the laughs and bonding. I’ve also found a great Instagram challenge for the month of July – forcing me to train on the pole every day, even if it’s just for 10 minutes.  I even get the kids involved sometimes.

2- BOSU! I love the Bosu stability trainer.  You can nail a full body workout with a Bosu in about 30 minutes. I have one at home, but even at the gym I use it weekly. I love the quick fix I get with just a few exercises. Here’s a little video with 3 great full body moves.

3 – YOGA! Taking a class forces me to work out and have absolute quiet for at least an hour. The crazy days of summer, late nights and kids fighting over the iPad take a toll on this mom. Yoga restores me. At least that’s how I feel afterwards. During the actual yoga class I’m cursing myself and silently screaming from the inside “WHAT AM I DOING HERE?!??!?! RUN! RUN! LEAVE THIS CLASS!!!!” But then by the last ten minutes when we can lay still and almost fall asleep, I’m a much happier human. And a much better mom. I’m also doing a #backtobackbends yoga challenge on Instagram this month to keep me motivated. Public accountability is a good thing for those of us fitness obsessed.

IMG_1698So these are the things I’m doing to stay fit this summer, at least when I’m not eating ice cream with the kids and drinking margaritas with the hubby. How do you stay focused on fitness in the summer?
