Every time I worked out the last two weeks (12/20-1/2)

Hi friends!  Happy New Year!

I want to thank everyone for all of the love that was delivered around the Bravo post. I was so excited and surprised to be included in their list fitness gurus to follow. Definitely check out the other four bloggers on that list, there are some pros on there.

I am back from a 12 day trip to Colombia. We hopped around the country, visiting cities, small towns and beaches. Unsurprisingly, Matt and I had an active trip, and I’ll fill you in on some of the fitness highlights over the next few days. But first, for our regularly scheduled week – well two weeks- in review.

Week 1: 12/20-12/26

Sunday: I took an hour-long Power Flow class at Lyon’s Den. As a special treat Matt came with me for his first hot yoga class. As always it was a sweaty delight.

Monday: Post-work Physique class

      We wanted somewhere close, warm, and with outdoorsy activities (hiking, swimming). We went to Ecuador the year before and loved it so we thought we’d move a little further east 🙂
