Weekly Workouts

Another week of workouts done! I realized I didn’t have a rest day, but there was so much variety and I felt energized each day. Tomorrow I’ll rest. Keith was away most of the week so my mid-week workouts were at home. My goal for the week was to do yoga each day, for at least 10 minutes. I did on most days and will keep going with it next week. Mobility training is KEY for a healthy body!
