I’m ready for winter to end, how about you? There has only been one snowstorm here where I live, but that is enough for me.

I’m just like a lizard—I love the hot sun and the humid air.  These cold mornings and long dreary days make me very depressed.

On the upside, I noticed the summer clothing and bikinis are out at Target, so that must mean summer is right around that corner. (yes?!)

Here are a few things I miss about summer:

I miss running outside.
I miss the heat and humidity.
I miss beach life.
I miss longer days of sunshine.
I miss hanging out at the pool for hours on end.

I am surviving by focusing on my mantra  “summer bodies are made in the winter”.
I aim for 5 solid workouts each week,  with emphasis on heavy weight training.  I do need to dust off my ASICS and ramp up my cardio since I signed up to run a 10k in April.   I also have the Tough Mudder on the horizon…….more about that later.

Here is a great combination to work your glutes.

  • 10 weighted squats/band optional
  • 20 box jumps
  • 8 weighted step ups/each leg

Try it out and let me know what you think!  (click thru for video)
