Awwww, I LOVE the pic of Jax sleeping, soooo cute! I loved the arm blast workout too, it was harder than it looked at first, I can totally feel those side planks in my obliques today! Enjoy the lovely warm weather and all the swimming in Florida. Autumn has pretty much arrived here in Ireland. I am already wearing my tan knee boots and reading all the Autumn chapters in my cookbooks!
