Challenge Number 4!


Hey guys! Sorry I'm so late in posting this.
But I made it home safely!

My trip was awesome! Due to the very hot weather, we didn't do as much hiking this time as last time. But I still worked out! 
Just not as often as during non-vacation weeks ;-)

I did, however, try new things:

I went swimming in a lake that had deep blue water, and really red sand 
-I'd never done that before
In said lake my legs got an extreme workout as I tried to stay away from the seaweed 
-I'd never done that before
I made up a workout routine in a swimming pool, including having my legs on the edge of the pool, and doing sit ups
-I'd never done that before
Michael is a lot more tan than I am, and he's very excited to be swimming
I walked around St. George to different historical sites
-I'd never done that before
I walked around a dinosaur tracks museum
-I'd never done that before
I danced vigorously in the car as we drove around
-I have done that on many occasions, but never in St. George

I think those count. Don't you? ;-) 

As for the self-esteem challenge, I am in the same boat as Amber and Helena; my Wonderful Husband was really the only one to compliment me, but I accepted his compliments graciously. 

I can't remember if others complimented me, which means if they did I didn't internalize it. I tend to do that. I accept it kindly so they know I appreciate it, but I don't always believe it, and then in turn I don't remember it. But I am definitely going to try and change this.

I'm going to try and kick butt with this weeks challenges!
Here's hoping I do everything :-)

This picture is awesome! Your photographer must be really talented.

Also, congratulations on all of your firsts! It sounds like it was really fun.

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...
