Are you still with me after yesterday's workout??

I know that was a hard one but don't worry, we're going to get stronger! That's the point of all this right? :)

We'll get there, we just have to keep moving forward one day at a time.

Today we'll give the arms a much-needed break and show the lower body some love.

Afterwards whip up this easy smoothie to replenish your energy and give your immune system a boost. It's a favorite of mine right now.

1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or milk of your choice)

1/2 frozen banana

1/2 cup frozen blueberries
