The Year of The Home Workout + New Playlist

2014 was the year I had a baby.  2015 was the year I had a toddler, got back into running, got into (and out of) a small group workout, did some pop physique classes, but ultimately nothing consistently.  So, without further ado or more class passes, I am hereby dubbing 2016 the year of the home workout.  My friend Dawn turned me onto this yoga site and if you haven’t spent much time searching YouTube for home workouts I would highly recommend it.  (Even if just for a laugh because some of them are ridiculous.  Like this workout …

I can still smell them!  That was the first Christmas tradition that I adopted …
