I know it's sometimes hard for me to stay put in the house. But sometimes it's fun, too - something different. Just knowing that we're doing this together might give you motivation. Hope so.

  • Thanks for the encouragement Tyla. I feel bad for those who are stuck on the freeway. One of my co workers didn't make it home until 2 pm today. Fortunately I rode the train in yesterday & didn't have to deal with the traffic gridlock. I have done very good today & have followed my plan today except I haven't eaten all my snacks. I have done my workout and may do another dvd this eve.

    Have a great evening.
