That is a tough situation. Just out of curiosity, do you enjoy using the treadmill?

I think my biggest struggle is motivating myself to work around my job schedule. Since I work different hours and drive different distances every day, what works on Monday may not work on Thursday. I can manage the food side of things pretty well, but the fitness can be difficult when I am waking up at 4 AM to get to work on time and not getting back home until 6PM. Those are the days I can't seem to get on the treadmill and I am just grateful that my job is pretty physical.

Looks like you have a solid plan in place. Call your cell phone provider to see if they'll let you upgrade early. Doesn't hurt to ask, right?

I have a few struggles. One is affordability. I am the single mother of 2 children with one in college. I have to find a way to keep the grocery bill in budget and working out without being able to afford a healthclub membership. Sometimes finding the time to get my exercise in is hard when you have yardwork, housework and games to go to. I am active on the weekends and have a hard time getting to a computer to track. I tracked like crazy at first, so on the weekends I just stick to the known. I use alot of my lunch time to research and blog about nutrition and exercise. I have had an elliptical and treadmill given to me by my parents who are active, healthy, and so encouraging. So I do consider myself lucky, some people don't have parents who can do that. I am lucky that my kids are not picky eater and will try anything. And when my phone contract comes due I will have a phone that I can use the SP app.

Good morning team. For those of you who are off on the weekends I bet this finds your smile just a bit brighter. Currently, what is the biggest challenge for you in reaching your health and fitness goals?
