Finished my first day (wk1 Day1)

I did it! I feel on top of the world.


After sundays fall on my practice one I was very nervous but excited at the same time.


But I managed it and I did it all I know its only day 1 but I managed it and now I can't wait for saturday to do it all again.


So pleased I found this website too as there is heaps of advice and tips on here.


I would like to get to know some of you better though.

Take care
