We are into the last week of #MicrosteppinginMay. Have you made any microsteps towards your goal or achieving healthier habits? I hope you have been inspired by my guests and posts to work towards making changes in your life one step at a time.
Let’s do a challenge to finish the month stronger and healthier!
The #MicrosteppinginMay Plank Challenge
Each day this week, join me to build our core strength one plank at a time. Start holding a plank for 10 seconds and each day add a little longer. Planks are a great way to build our core strength which is so important for a strong body as we age. Pop over to the Sizzling Towards 60 & Beyond Facebook Group and join the challenge.
Here is a link to a youtube video for beginners that explains How to do a Plank correctly.
