Me...... and .. My.. Bouncy....... Ball....

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

So last week I cleaned my bedroom, and I found an unused gift card from Target ,and I thought to myself, "Hmm... What will I do with this?". Needless to say, I had been wanting to buy a balance ball for some time now, and I knew that it was high time that I done so! So without further adieu, here is my workout on my new bouncy ball :). The ball came with a workout DVD, and resistance band so that was super cool! Never mind the awkwardness, LOL I was focused (most of the time)....

Sporting the excitement, that is the Blue Ball! emoticon

I must admit that I was actually afraid that I would pop this thing! As you can see, the fear went away quickly!!!!! Gotta start out with some good stretching!

Getting into it with some simple crunches!

Working those Arms!

And now comes the BUSINESS!

My Abs are a BURNIN!

Now for the REAL DEAL! Double crunches and leg raises!

I love this angle!!


Now for Swimming...


Don't laugh, it ain't easy, ok go ahead and laugh- I did after falling off the ball many times!!

Now for some silly time!! Time for the "GUN" show!!

And what does my cat do this whole time he is in the same room with me??? emoticon


I had a blast with my new toy, and it REALLY added another dimension to my ST Mondays!!!

If you don't already have one, you so gotta go get one!!!! This thing rocks!!!

Stupid iPhone has rotated the pictures, sorry about the perspective ya'll.

    Oh my gosh, I was cracking up over your cat. Mine does the same thing. Occasionally, she'll join me on my yoga mat and stare at me.

    I love my ball. It's really fun if you have the run, to get a quick walking or running start and super man on the ball..... but be careful!

    I have a Ball also ad truly enjoy working out on it. Ii actually look forward to my workouts and don't feel right if I miss them. I mix my workouts out with stretching dvds on the ball, pilates, yoga and core fitness. There is so many different styles to work out on with the ball and each provides its own fun. I have actually noticed the difference in my clothes also. The real plus. Keep it up and you will find it is a new and enjoyable journey to venture out on.

    That looks like such fun! I think I'll definitely get one now. But the thing that I love most about that workout session is your supportive cat!

Keep up the good work! emoticon

    Had to laugh at the cat picture. I bought a balance ball and almost killed myself on it... I am so not coordinated. The cats are also terrified of it but it's still out....
