Adding a Challenge
Sunday, September 02, 2018      2 comments

My challenge last week was to complete 30 minutes of exercise a day. I didn't quite make that goal, although if you average out my exercise time, it does come to 30 minutes a day. I had two days where I exercised 50-60 minutes but a couple that ... Read more
