I know excuses don’t count, but I’m giving my excuses anyway. Last week was my birthday and we had a lot going on, between celebrations and a parade and of course we had to see Murder on the Orient Express at the theater. Then yesterday I picked up a cold so skipped out on the gym when my husband asked if I wanted to go. So my steps are LOUSY!

This week’s activities:

Wednesday – Lunges, Pilates

I’m also going to try the #Lungevember challenge. I’m going with the easy level because lunges are tough!
