Hi Everyone!

This was my late night workout yesterday. It's a challenging core workout. This workout is designed to work every aspect of the core, building strength and stability. 

Our days have been absolutely jam packed lately! This weekend I have two full days of continuing education courses, but over the next few weeks I am looking forward to it slowing down again. :) 

I just got back from another meal out, with some fabulous company (my mom). On my way home I reflected on how overly full I am, and how much I have been eating out over the past week (anniversary night, anniversary weekend away from home, birthday party at work (and subsequent party leftovers the next day), birthday party at a restaurant, and dinner with my mom tonight). 

My body feels all of those meals out. I feel sluggish, puffy, and overly full. While I enjoyed all of the meals, and more importantly the company, it's time for me to recommit to my normal clean eating style. I prefer foods cooked at home, and I feel better when I eat them. For the rest of the month I will be eating all home cooked foods. Which should make for some good recipe sharing. :) I will be making an exception for my sister's birthday at the end of the month, but I will focus on choosing whole foods. 

Enjoy the workout!
