My Take
I naturally have a big butt so I'm constantly working on toning my lower body. Everyone knows how to do a squat, these ramped up babies will kick, tone, and sculpt your legs and butt at the same time. My goal is to have a beautifully toned muscle butt and these squat variations will get me there.

This challenge is exciting. I've been eating vegan on and off for the last couple of weeks, I'm going balls to the wall all vegan all day for at least 3 days. I will miss eggs the most, but I know I can make it. Good luck everyone

Self Improvement Challenge

    • The brain needs mental stimulation to stay healthy and fight off Alzheimer's and dementia
    • Reading whatever you want is a great stress reliever
    • Everything you read fills your head with new knowledge, knowledge is power, it can never be taken away from you

My Take
I read multiple blogs a day, but that's not going to count as my 30 minutes of fun reading. I'll be on vacation soon and I've been pulling out some of my favorite books. I read a lot as a child and teenager, I'm hoping this challenge sparks my love for novels again. Can't wait to loose myself in a book again.

That's all I have for you guys today
Blessings,
Mary
