Monday, April 16th Workout - Full Body Yoga Workout and Stretch

Today is Day 1 of Week Seven of working out on my plan and this week will be my first workout week at the gym!

The stupid, awful, crappy weather kept me away from the gym today so I really focused on my yoga stretch routine (with 6 new poses instead of 2) and held each pose for 20 seconds this time around (20 seconds per side as needed).

I feel really good and even though I'm bummed about the gym I should be able to get there tomorrow!
