What a day!

Today was intense!  I had a personal training session this morning, and then I went to yoga tonight.  For a total of about 2.5 hours of exercise. I'm exhausted, but so proud of myself.

Before the training session started, I did twenty minutes of intervals on the elliptical.  Then, we went straight into the work.  I did one arm rows with 35 pounds!  I was so proud of myself.  One thing I noticed - after taking last week off from pure strength work, I was much stronger this week.  All my weights are up.  It was amazing, and very empowering.  So, next time I feel like I am fraying at the edges, I will remember this.  But, all that said, I am just thrilled that I got such a great workout in!  And, my thighs are still feeling it!

Yoga tonight was more of a relaxation class, but all that means is that we start on the floor.  The workout is as intense as you put into it.  I definitely worked up a sweat and got a great workout.  And, it was fun.  What I love most about yoga is that you don't leave all worked up. You calm down and relax at the end, so when you leave, you are in a relaxed frame of mind.  I love that!

The rest of the day was just work.  It was a busy day, but I got everything done I needed to.  That always feels good.  And, we're in the back half of the week.  Happy!
