Halfway point of the challenge, and going strong! I like where I am right now, and at least I got things done despite falling ill :)

 

I'm slightly worried for Weeks 4 and 5, because I'm helping out in the freshman orientation programme which lasts from Week 4 Friday until Week 5 Wednesday. Not awfully long, but possibly long enough to throw my current rhythm. :(

you're doing really well and you've already identified that your commitments are going to change in the next 2 weeks and affect your challenge. Concentrate hard on fitting it all in or making sure you can make up for stuff at other times and you will succeed!!
