My mom bought a book from Reader's Digest called How To Write Your Life Story The Complete Guide to Creating a Personal Memoir by Karen Ulrich. I checked & you can get this book in Hardcover from Amazon for only $2.99.

You can run, you can walk, you can ride. You are doing a super job at getting in your exercise! I am shouting cheers for you being in the top five for team fitness minutes!!!!!

It will hurt. It will take time. It will require dedication. It will require willpower. You will need to make healthy decisions. It requires sacrifice. You will need to push your body to its max. There will be temptation. But, I promise you, when you reach your goals, it's worth it.

I believe in YOU!!!!
