Hi! I hope your week and weekend treated ya well. We were spoiled with a sunshine-packed fall weekend here in California – can’t complain! And if you follow me on Instagram, you know I was all about the pumpkin.
Trader Joe’s does fall just right!

Another two weeks have passed since I’ve shared my Weekly (Home) Workouts, so that’s what I am doing this evening — lots of rest lately and an increase in yoga practices.
My upper body has been giving me a lot of grief lately (P says that my muscles were replaced with steel), so I’ve intelligently let go of the lifting (somewhat) in exchange for more cardio-based workouts. Not my favorite, but when your body is telling you something, it is always best to listen to it.
Two massage treatments later and I am finally not feeling like Frankenstein; hoping to loosen up my trap(ezius) enough to play with kettlebells ASAP…
