Home Workout #1: 45 Minutes or Less!

July 13, 2015 | Comment

Howdy folks, and happy Monday! This past weekend was beautiful here in Eastern PA! My boyfriend and I enjoyed some wine on the Level3 Rooftop of Melt on Friday, and on Saturday we swam in his parents backyard pool and grilled chicken, corn, and veggies for dinner.


Friday Evening enjoying beautiful weather and wine!

It was definitely a great weekend together before he left on vacation!

Unfortunately, because I am still within the first 100 days since my stem cell transplant, I’m not allowed to travel on planes or out of a certain radius from my doctor, and I’m not allowed to go to the beach. I’m having some serious FOMO (fear of missing out) right now – Kayla is in California for BlogFest, boyfriend is on vacation, and some of my other friends seem to be out of town too! It’s killing me! 

The best thing I can do, however, is to continue to use this time to focus on me. Last week I did some great home workouts, since I’m not allowed to go to the gym yet either! My only equipment used is a 20 lb kettle bell, a set of 10 lb and 15 lb dumbbells, a resistance band w/ handles, and a stability ball. If you possess some or all of these items, you can give yourself a great muscle-building, calorie-burning workout! I used to lift a lot heavier before my transplant, so having lighter weight forces me to find creative ways to challenge myself. I’ll be posting them throughout this week!
