My Take
I’m all about a firm booty. These are some of my favorite exercises to get my backside into shape. Everyone wants a nice butt, and everyone can have one, you have to work your glutes and your thighs to get that round bubble butt. You can improve your butt, its not impossible, you have to work those muscles to shape it, just like any other part of your body.

  • Make a shopping list or shop your pantry to make it easier
  • Prepackage your lunch and snacks to eat throughout the day

My Take
I like planing out almost all of my meals, it gives me something to look forward to. I find that it saves me time and money, which are two things that I don’t have a lot of. It also keeps me in-shape and full, which can be hard when your dieting, or watching what you eat, all the time. I hope you enjoy this challenge as much as I do.
