I NEED to join in on this one! Especially with all of the 'extra' time I'll have during spring break!

3/1

I need to figure out how to exercise around my absolutely insane work/school/more work schedule. I work 2 jobs and go to school full-time, so finding time for laundry is hard enough, let alone getting exercise in. Luckily for me one of my jobs requires me to be on my feet constantly moving around, so that at least keeps me active-ish.

I definitely need to find a way to get my exercise in, even if it's just walking or yoga. I NEED to do this.

MaddieBPhoto 02-28-2011 07:33 PM

I'm in! I'm going for 26/31. We'll see. I'm heading to CA in 2 weeks, so it may be tricky getting 30DS in, but I really actually have no excuse ;)

This may be unrealistic, but I want to shoot for every single day of march. I made this commitment previously and started exercising everyday since last week, so I hope I can keep it up. I still need to keep my eating habits in check, though, since that's where I see the most failure.
