Ready to get back on track....

Thanks for your suggestion on my last blog. I will look for something that challenges me. A friend at work gave me her P90X dvds. That's definitely challenging !

I finally made it back to the gym today to do some cardio. Your advice and encouragement helped. Thank you.

emoticon Hi,
Just taking a look at your page, before I retired in 2008 I used to commute about the same distance to work and back as you. I'm a retired High School teacher so I wasn't sitting all day once I got there though. Driving for that long can eventually lead to back problems though, that's what happened to me. It's better now that I'm retired. My commute was from one very small town (4800) to an even smaller one (740) mostly along a pretty country highway so I think my drive was probably a lot less stressful than yours. Before that job I commuted in the San Francisco Bay area and it was MUCH worse!
Good luck on this round of the BLC emoticon
