I started out late but I finished the 4th week yesterday.
It was good to have a routine other than walking.
Thanks

Thanks Nicole
This was a great challenge.
I have a routine and this challenge certainly showed me how much more I can do to get to more goals!

Carve out what is most important to you first, then allocate your day to others! I promise you and they will be better for this decision!!

I love that you have your forward goals and rewards in place - not just what you have achieved, but what you will go on to achieve.

For me - unfortunately I haven't managed enough of Week 4 to allow me to count it as done - so another repeated week. But I'd rather be true to myself and my outcomes than just try to work out how to make what I have managed to do - to be enough.
So - here I go again, not emoticon but emoticon
