  1. Carolyn, congratulations on your nearly reaching all of your goals! The journey that you have been on is amazing and so inspiring!

  2. Hi Carolyn,

    I found your blog through a link from Babble and Bloom. Just wanted to say how impressed I am at your willingness to share your experiences so honestly. (I've been blogging a difficult move abroad and haven't found the courage to share with anyone beyond a few close friends, so I really admire your openness!) Congratulations on achieving so many of your fitness goals, and I look forward to reading more.

    1. Thanks so much Regina! It's definitely a scary and strange thing to be vulnerable online, but I've made so many good friends through blogging that it's a plunge worth taking :)

  3. I absolutely love this idea of a "Goals" section! I just might have to steal it...:)
