Heavy body without a heavy heart
Had LBWO on Wednesday, and finally all those emotions came up and allowed me to cry when I got home. I am so dang heavy, and my muscles have gotten so weak over the years, that the lower body workouts are just incredibly hard. I can hardly do squats and lunges, I don't even need to hold dumbbells...
