The December Yoga Challenge is up! This month I decided to add in some new poses and some new pose variations so this challenge should be a lot of fun!

Monday, November 25th Workout: Push Day A -Chest, Shoulder, Triceps & Abs Plus Cardio and Full Body Stretch
Well, it's taken me many months of illness, chronic pain and issues and new issues (anemia and messed up blood pressure) but I was finally feeling well enough to start working out again and now I feel amazing!
I did make one big mistake in today's workout because when I added abs into my Push/Pull/Legs routine I put them on the end but I didn't take into consideration that some of those ab exercises were planks so by the time I got to the Up-Down Plank today my arms were so dead from the weighs that I could barley do it. So for future reference... put all planks at the start of the workout!
Other than that I had a great workout and I can't wait to do it again tomorrow!
