Fitness Friday

I had all intentions to return to yoga this week.  In fact, I had the intention to return to yoga today but life has this way of laughing at you when you make plans, so needless to say there’s no yoga this week.
But what there was this week was strength training.  And can I just say it felt amazing?
It was the first time I’ve been able to lift in at least two months due to pain, hospitalization and surgery + recovery.  I got in two days of strength that left my arms and legs shaking but feeling strong.  Man, I missed that!
I’m hoping yoga can return next week as I’m itching to stretch out my body and ease my mind again.
With that, here’s what I was able to accomplish this week and I’m pretty happy to say I’m starting off my new year right!
