Happy day after Halloween! How’s your sugar headache? Hopefully you were able to refrain from too much candy. We only had two, yes two, trick-or-treaters this year so we have way too much sweet stuff sitting around the house. We actually just threw away some candy from last year! I guess my sweet tooth can’t be that bad if candy has lasted the entire year without getting eaten.
This week I have changed up my normal full body workouts to muscle specific. I really wanted to focus on the muscle groups because I feel like I have been a little lazy at the gym lately. My favorite workout was this leg workout. It definitely challenged me and left me a little sore. You know it was a good leg workout when sitting on the toilet is a struggle! Enjoy you workout!
