Consistency is key…

26 Dec

Consistency is key, however something I have not been keeping up with. Ever since I started training I haven’t been working out consistently. I’m going to try to fix that. Today I did my first post Christmas workout and posted it below.

That’s right people, shiz just got real festive up in here! It’s been a busy day, week, month, year, etc…but I still managed to find time to put up the tree and stockings. Now, don’t judge me because I’m no Suzy Homemaker, but I think my tree looks pretty darn good. Check it out!

And one more I took with the lights out just because I wanted to see how it would look from our front window.
