Regarding my progress in the Hot 100 Challenge: Goal #4 is to engage in some form of exercise every day.  So yesterday I posted my goals and today was busy with an early school visit to my kids classes, lunch, 2 errands, grocery shopping, making dinner, attending son's football game, then at 7 pm I was bringing my daughter to her guitar lesson and I realized I still hadn't engaged in any exercise.  So I threw my tennis shoes on, set my phone alarm for 14 minutes and headed out walking down the street after my daughter went in for her lesson. When the alarm went off I turned and headed back.  Then a surprising thing happened and I jogged the last 10 minutes back to the music store.  For anyone that knows me, I'm not a runner, but I follow alot of runners on their Blogs so Nej at I Think I Can, I Think I Can you inspired me to kick it into high gear.  On the way home from the lesson I logged the course that I walked/jogged at 1.6 miles.  I don't think I'll be signing up for any marathons, but I did get my daily exercise in!
