    Just a thought - is anyone listening to the book you are on while exercising? Might make the time go more quickly and keep us in the right frame of mind for this challenge. Let me know if you have done this and how it worked!

    oh my goodness how glad I am to have found this challenge!! Harry Potter to the rescue again. Honestly it couldn't
    be more perfect including all the titles thus far is the exact amount of weight I wanted to lose (including Cursed Child, Fantastic Beasts, Quidditch, and Beedle). I made this little chart for me to fill in as i lose the weight its sized to fit my planner but definitely fills out most of a letter size paper. Hope someone else can use it too.
