I went to the store today for a few things, such as vitamins, yarn, and a yoga mat.  Until I saw the price for one: $30-40!  Ridiculous! 

Instead, I bought a $13 10lbs. dumbbell.  And I'm very happy with my purchase, although I was able to price the mats and the blocks that I'd like to make my yoga experience easier.  But until then, I can finally have a proper arm day!

I do remember some strength workouts for your arms from high school, but I'm going to look at more, which I know that I can use for my other workouts, too. 

Soft knees when standing.
Core engaged.
