FitReaders Update:

Well, I did finish my first fitness audiobook this month. But I just haven’t been able to stay consistent with my walking schedule yet. February was a rough month for me at work, so when I got home I pretty much didn’t do anything. Hopefully spring and sunshine will help me get back in the groove. After all, I want to listen to Hidden Figures, so….. 🙂

Here’s to another month of great reading!
