How is your morning ? Has it been any better than mine?
The last few weeks I've been in my office gym at lunchtime to complete the new workout program that was set up by our trainer. I don't understand why I volunteered to register for it but I did and it is my second week of success. I didn't realize that it included 16 days of multiple weight lifting, situps, and many other exercises to complete the Functionally Fit game. It is a rigorous cycle to work all the muscles of the human body, but my muscles are worn out every morning for the past few weeks.
