a new workout

Recruitment has expanded from 9am to 7pm every day. It is tiring, but getting to know all the girls better justifies everything – with interest.

Me, Kiki, Dominique 

 We sing, we dance, we craft, we do top secret things, and we get very short lunch breaks. I haven’t had a chance to really cook anything interesting and I have had to squeeze in the gym either reallly early or reallyy late. I have two alternating go-to weight lifting routines and I finally broke out of them a bit and stirred it up! I love this new workout! Give it a try :)
