    I hope it does help with the power, people don't think, they feel they will be okay, not knowing that it affects family as well, with worry, I bet alot of people stayed, I know when we had flooding at our old house, not where I live now, but I had to talk my husband into leaving, I was not staying, I won and we left, we would have been stuck there for a couple of days with no power,water or bathroom, we don't have to worry about that now, the water anyway, but we have lost our power for a week here because of snow, we have a generator though so it was all good

    Living through blizzards and hurricanes, I've lucked out. I've never been without power more than 24 hours. We aren't on a well, so if our power goes out we will still have water and bathroom. Just won't have phones. We have no cell towers here so our cell phones are connected to our internet service. That's what I'll miss the most.

    That's awesome. I don't think I've ever had a 10,000 step day.

    We survived Irma. Only without power for 22 hours and only lost some tree limbs. Cold, or whatever it is, is manageable now, so I'm back to walking tomorrow. No excuses.

    I'm glad you guys are okay, ,22 hours of no power doesn't sound like fun, but you made it through, Happy to here you are back to exercising, I have started a work week challenge with some people at work with the Fitbit, I was ahead of everyone but not sure how it will end, I have until midnight to go, I hope I end on top, but these people are crazy and don't like to lose lol, just like me hehehe

    No, not bad, good, you started walking today, today is the first day of many, keep it going, I wasn't doing that great either, but I'm walking right now, plan to get in a half hour, I'm up to 17 minutes, and still going lol, I have to beat those girls at school, I really do enjoy working with them now that I got to know them a little more and the student I mostly work with is getting much better, they said I was being tested by her, I think I'm winning lol tomorrow is another day, we can do it again and will feel much better after our walk, have a great night

    I'm glad you are enjoying your co workers and your student is doing better. They can definitely test you. Hope you have a great night too.

    Aren’t you doing your Fitbit challenge?

    I went on a long walk with my hubby last Friday. He was on Fall Break.

    Today was my first day in the gym. Went twice as fast on the treadmill as I was going on it last time I was in the gym 6 months ago.
