We are having another 80 degree day! I'm going to go get my vitamin D on.
Last week I overworked my knee and caused some type of stress injury so, I have been laying off the squats. Boo hoo! I was ready to move on to P90X and now I have to wait. Instead of my regular routine I've been power walking everyday and practicing yoga. Today I did my sculpt routine without the leg work and my ab routine. At 48 yrs. old I am not trying to achieve some great athletic body but I do want to be fit and toned when we get out on our boat this year. We are hoping to put it in the water this weekend and I am looking forward to spending time with my family, relaxing and reading while enjoying the peacefulness of the water.
