It's getting into that cold season again! The snow is just around the corner (or may have already come for some of us), and it just seems nice to stay inside and lounge by the fire while watching your favorite holiday movies. That may seem like a good idea now, but in a few more months when the ground starts to thaw and you realize it's bikini season, you might just change your mind! Here are some challenges that will fill your week up perfectly. Just take it one day at a time and work your muscles.
