Helena takes the stairs

I took the stairs today at work. In heels. My office is 3 flights up, and I usually use the ancient elevator.

This might not seem like a big deal to most people, but my calves are saying otherwise.

And hey, I've got to start somewhere.

Good work on taking the stairs! I avoid doing that as often as possible.

About Annie

With everything I am responsible for at home, my ridiculous work schedule and my health problems, it makes it hard to keep working out on the front burner. But when I heard about this blog, I thought 'why not!'. I'm excited to get started and hopefully I won't die of exhaustion when this is all over!

About Helena

I can't fit into my clothes! After getting married and being forced to eat my own cooking, I started gaining weight. The desk job didn't really help. I gained 30 lbs in the past year, and I can really feel it when I try to get dressed in the morning. I am really good at starting diet and exercise programs; but really bad at finishing them. And that's all about to change...
