Hi everyone, so I’m not a big video person or tech savvy, but I will work on it! I’m looking to start an exercise challenge to get ready for the new year. So each day I will be posting an exercise challenge and possibly something mentally challenging puzzle etc.
This year I am looking to have my best year mentally and physically! Hope you will join me for this journey!

Inch worm out to plank
Small hop in; 10 butt kicks
