This week has been very emotional for me, as I finally began admitting to others how I have been battling slowly-worsening anxiety for about two years. FiA has definitely been one of the biggest factors in me making it this far- both the physical benefit of working out and the strong, supportive community of women I have been able to be a part of. For these reasons, I went with a Pinterest-inspired workout based on the Valkries and Shieldmaidens from Norse mythology. These women were strong warriors who lived for battle…and exactly the kind of role model I needed this week!

The goal was to complete this 3 times- we only made it through Round 1 for the third circuit because this one was TOUGH! Also Mother Nature clearly doesn’t see September as the beginning of fall like I do because it was HOT. But we did it. Closed out with stretches, prayer request, & Name-o-rama.
