Strength Training – Monday

There are certain things I need to do on a daily basis. Yoga is one of them, followed by at least 3 days a week of some form of exercise. That form is currently kettle bells. The Husband and I plan to hit a gym at some point to begin barbell training again but until then kettle bells will suffice. I have to do these things, it’s a non-negotiable. I fall apart if I don’t, both literally (pains/headaches, etc…) and my anxiety spikes beyond manageable levels. Besides, when I do strength train regularly and do yoga I gain both confidence and I am calm. Win-win!!
