Yes my favorite of the 3 is the plank.. I do it for 60 seconds. 

Yes I do like stir fry, my favorite is my husband's very own recipe. I don't know how he makes it  or everything that is in it, but it's so delicious I even asked him if he'd mind making it for the main dish for one of our big family Christmas feasts one year and everyone else loved it, as I knew they would too.
