Back to the Grind

Ok, so I slacked off, swollen-faced for most of the weekend. I told you…me and the dentist don’t get along! I literally slept on the couch and watched “Criminal Minds” for the rest of the day after my appointment on Friday. I was so miserable! I don’t even know that it was so much pain, as anxiety and being worn out…and completely detesting the feeling of having half of my face numb. I was able to get a quick @blogilates workout in on Saturday afternoon after Christmas tree shopping, so I guess I was only a 50% slacker this weekend (since I didn’t post it!).

Well, since I took it easy this weekend, I had to hit the gym with a vengeance today! My legs were definitely shaking for an hour or so after I left the gym. I will be anxious to see how sore I am tomorrow! Anyway, here’s what I did today. Let me know how it goes for you! Did you make it through the cardio? I definitely paused my timer once or twice during the workout session!
