For the past 3 years my commute to work has been an hour one way. It has really taken a toll on me physically and mentally. The lease on our office will expire at the end of the year. My manager asked me to find a new office. I told them that they only way to find cheaper rent would be to move south. Yes I do live south of the office but I was not lying when said that I could find cheaper rent out there. I showed my manager the 3 options I had found. He told me this morning that we are moving to the office that is 10 MINUTES away from my house. From 1 hour to 10 minutes. I AM JUMPING UP AND DOWN, SINGING A LITTLE SONG AND SO HAPPY I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH MYSELF.

My husband always told me that if we lived closer to my work I could get a scooter. Well......we are going to live closer to work or should I say work will live closer to us. I have finally found my motivation. I need to lose weight before I can comfortably ride a scooter. I put a picture of a scooter on my cell phone. Every time I have been a little tempted today I look at my phone and think "SCOOTER".

    That's awesome! Congrats on the shorter commute. My work time recently changed from 20-30 min to 5 min when our business moved. It's a wonderful feeling.

    Glad you have the scooter to help with your motivation!

    HOORAY! I once reduced my commute from an hour and 20 minutes to three minutes so I understand the feeling!

    You have a great reward to look forward to!
