Another Challenge

I totally failed... I got most of my vegetables but barely any fruit, I blame it on the fact that our car is on it's last leg and we are afraid to drive it anywhere. That means we have pretty much no food in the house, we drive to and from work (praying the whole way) and that is the extent of our driving, so even if I wanted to eat all my fruits I couldn't :( Just like Chantel, I have started juicing! I already had a bunch of carrots and other vegetables on hand, so I got most of my 'required' servings of those!

I also didn't really ace the physical challenge, I ran out of time and stamina this week. I had a ton of things I was doing (more about that in my next blog post!) and really didn't have enough time or energy :( This is the first challenge I didn't rock... So I'm going to have to do better next week!

It's all good Amber! Even if the challenge didn't rock, you do!

I'm sorry you guys are scared to drive. I vote you get a new car.

Don't worry Amber, I don't always rock the challenges :-) But I'm still proud of you!

Sorry about your car. And your Big Failure.

Kidding. I think everybody struggled last week.

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...
