I can't wait to keep my walking streak alive today. I've hit my 10,000 goal 3 times in the last week, including yesterday's 13,000 mark. The walking will help me corral my eating also. Once I am seeing payoffs in my energy from better movement: ... Read more

Good morning, Sparks! I left the house a wee bit late today --- not late for work, just later then I like to leave because traffic really builds up the later into the morning it gets. I like to leave early and beat the heavier traffic a... Read more
