Domestic Diva Day



Domestic Diva Day! Do you enjoy housework? What's your mindset to get through it without turning inot a GRUMP? I really need to get a new mindset about this part of my life, lol!

anyhow I am SORE! mostly in my back and legs- So...I guess that means a chest, tri, abs workout is on tap for me today- YAY! my favorite.

I had a really, really good leg wo yesterday- I am very happy to say that I think my sciatica is really starting to get better!! I actually think leg workouts and our lunges have impacted it postivily- whoohooooo!! I am staying away from cardio due to the repetivie nature of it and the impact...maybe in a week or two I'll feel confident enough to add more of it in. Tennis the other day didn't hinder it- so that's a good sign and a fun activity to keep in my routine!

My leg workout went kinda like this:

Warm up STAIR MILL 10 mins
