Charity: Water

Happy Wednesday everyone! Welcome to new readers, please pop in the comments and say hallo!

My week is booked solid, is off the HOOK busy and all with work, work related meetings & training's! I couldn't be happier! Here is a super tiny sneak peek at me in work clothes: 

This is a short post today, but I wanted to point out a really fantastic charity effort happening over here at Healthy Heart Journey. My good friend Cindy, who you may remember from posts like my Back in Shape 5K recap and Shopping therapy (!) is venturing out on her journey to health and donating to Charity: Water.


1 Billion people don't have access to fresh drinking water, but 

Cindy is looking for people to donate AND to sponsor her: She is going to donate 1$ for every pound she shed's on her journey over the next 3 months to Charity: water. AND she is going to match her sponsor's donations. There is more too, but you should head over to her blog and check it out-- it's a worthy cause and Cindy is one ambitious girl!! 

When do you feel you take our clean water and drinking water for granted? I leave water running when I shouldn't... like brushing my teeth or cleaning.  :(

Hi Mary, I am a new follower of your blog and a fellow Minnesotan (although sadly I am not living there right now...working on getting back though).

I love your blog and find a lot of inspiration from it! Thanks for all the great posts! :)

New reader here :-)

Also trying to move from a desk job (home business) to personal training. I just got certified through NASM recently and can't wait to see where it takes me.

Sometimes I take too long of showers.

Not a super new reader, you helped me with a shoestore reccomendation on Twitter a bit ago and I follow you on facebook also.
I'm a fellow Minnesotan, not born and raised transplanted from the east coast. I have a huge amount of weight to lose and lots of obstacles to overcome to do so with my body. I've lost somewhere near 100 lbs but still need to drop more than 100 more. I just started walking.
Your blog is amazing, I see a lot of things about myself in your story and your success and unwillingness to surrender now is an inspiration.

Keep it up!!
