Good Morning! It is Music Monday. Today’s feature is “Feel Good” by the Gorillaz. Rock out to this during your workout today or while checking out mine below.

I am still on a high from the weekend at Healthy Living Summit. As a result, it was not hard to get up and moving down to the gym this morning. That is something key for keeping motivation up: Find something that excites you!

I did an upper body strength training session in the downstairs gym this morning. It was a routine from an older issue of Muscle & Fitness Hers. I love that magazine for new strength training moves. I also added some abs and 20 elliptical HIIT.
