This is another one of those clean out the fridge and hope for the best meals. I had some vegetables just waiting for something magical and some chicken that needed to be cooked today.

Before I made dinner, I had some time and the energy to sweat a little. I didn’t really want to, but it’s not about what I want. I’m in dire need of pushing my body to the limits just to see if I still can. This is an older workout but it’s so effective. It requires a deck of cards, some time, and a killer playlist. The Deck of Death.


Happy Monday!
