Clockwise: Today’s Starbucks PH Card Haul (with Red 2019 Year of the Pig sleeves) | Coffee Date Anyone? | Damage barrier?

Squat Press: One of the best full-body workouts out there–also one of the toughest.

First Workout of 2019

After a 15-day break during the holidays, I somehow managed to get myself back to the gym today.  That was the hard part.  Even more difficult than the workout itself.

Always remember that the first day back is always the hardest.

So push through and you will soon reap the rewards of your persistence and determination.

Audio 001 – Toy Review: Disney Pixar Cars 3 Die-Cast Mini Racers [Series 1]
