So many of our challenges deal with exercise, diet, or self improvement. So let's just throw in an "odd ball" challenges just to keep things fun.

Today's challenge is one of those AND it helps us to get to know one another a bit better. Here are some questions you can answer about yourself. It is always fun to read what others have to say. Our varied responses makes us realize that we are all human. No matter where we live, or what we do, we are ALL wanting the same thing: TO LIVE A HEALTHIER LIFE. Have fun!
