(20 minutes elliptical, 30 hard minutes on the bike, a cool-down walk, and 15-20 minutes of core work) Oh, and I also wore Clemson gear to get ready for tomorrow’s championship game.
I’m also excited to hit the gym because Kevin’s company holiday party is tonight. I get to wear my sequin dress again, and the dress really shows off my arms. Curls for the
