Could I join you for and exercise challenge. I am already in a lbs. valentine challenge and hope to lose 7 lbs by valantine's day at a pound a week. For my exercise I plan to do at least a mile a day on the bike or treadmill. That is 7 days by 7 weeks, a total of 49 miles. and if I start today that is an extra day, so we will make it an even 50 miles by Valentine's day. Wow, those miles will add up if I can motivate myself to do it every day. That is why I need this challenge. LETS DO IT. IT'S A NEW YEAR AND A NEW CHALLENGE.
50 miles by Valentine's day! HAPPY NEW YEAR
