lol about lori looking hairy—jax is quite hilarious! i think that he thinks he IS a person too! what a personality lol. i am trying a plank challenge this month and starting today! i know you girls are plank champions! i’ve been slacking on core work in general and i feel like it’s a great time and a quick, easy way to get stronger and tone the tummy. december is always very hit or miss with me getting a workout in. if i don’t do it first thing in the AM, then chances are …i don’t do anything ha

wahoo!!! yay for planks 🙂 this December we hope to focus more on our legs, as we’ve been slacking on working on them.
