Weekend highlights: not much to report

Morning, all! It was a quiet weekend around here, so this will be short. I think I had the flu last week? It was not fun. I spent most of Saturday in bed. Thankfully, I felt MUCH better yesterday – my body clearly just needed the rest. And I’m pretty back to normal today, even…

Weekly workout recap: last week of November

Hey there. Happy Friday and Happy DECEMBER! I feel like even the haters can’t argue with #alltheHolidaystuff now. I’m also pleased to report I have only a few more gifts left to purchase – woohoo!
