Thanks, Kate. (yes, I just realized I can comment here - duh). I am hoping that this process will get me to it. My pounds to go are not that big, my real focus is the ever elusive balance and to become more physically fit. I really do find the blogs inspirational. You especially have a writing talent, thanks for sharing it with us all. btw - LOVE the exercises you give us and the humor with which you present them. Some of them have kicked my butt, all totally worth it. I know at the end of it all I will be Ninja Strong!
