Workout 3. I watched John Wick 3 yesterday by myself at 11am for six bucks. I smuggled in gluten free vegan breakfast cookies that I made in little snack bags. I watched the extended fight scenes and imagined all the training and practice it took to get there. Then this morning @realkendrasmith kicked my ass w some circuits and kicks.

If you’re not feeling yourself I highly recommend watching a John Wick then kicking ass with consent. Also did you all see that viral video of some dude dropkicking Arnold Schwarzenegger in the back and Arnold not even budging? I wanna do that to an Arnold-type someday and make that shit count. #SwoleJenny #JennyFuHustle
