You totally rock! I found a tutorial that tells me how to make a progress bar for my challenges, but haven't had time to read it yet.

Congrats, a successful month!

Listening to 6 audio books, I listen more than I get to read but you have me beat. I can't remember listening to more than 3 books in a month. I'm impressed! :)

Have a great March

Veggiemomof2 - Thanks! I like seeing the progress bars! Once you have time to create them..you'll have to put a link to the directions on your blog so I can check it out too. haha

Mari - Thanks! I actually started to listen to some while running, so that helped a lot. Plus I have a routine I do each morning for my job, so I know it well, and I'm able to listen to the audio books while I do this and pay attention to both things.
