FitFriday Update & Food!!!

Happy Fitfriday everyone! So instead of a lesson today, I wanted to let you know what I’ve been up to for the last five weeks. If you remember, I was supposed to start a bodyweight 30-Day challenge.

My characters […]

But even with all the fact and statistics, studies and whatnot, most Americans have way too much ‘bad’ fat (thus removing it last week) and not enough ‘good’ […]

Go Plank Yourself 2

Happy Workout Wednesday all ya’ll beautiful people! Today, I’m continuing my plank series by going over a couple more variations: side and single-leg planks.
