Good mornin Jen. You are doing so well and congratulations on reaching your goals. I don't think I could tolerate the taste of some of those foods. However I have used a couple of the cleanse products purchased from Michaels Herbs and Vitamins online. Good luck in February. Me and my Little Buddy have been walking almost everyday weather permitting since the first of the year. I am increasing my distance and walking harder everyday. Even bought me a sports watch. We'll see but I would love to get back into the racewalking circuit here and join some 5 and 10K.

This is pretty intense. I would imagine that you'd have to plan for the week/month way in advance? It seams like you've done a lot of research on what to have!
I give you so much props becasue I would love to do this but just dont know when i'd find the time to research everything!
Perhaps that's my goal this month to gear up for March?! Oh and take some ideas from you too watching you this month!
