Ohh another Challenge week done already? These weeks go fast! I have to admit.....(cause it's a rule to tell the truth.) I did not do anything new this week!

I am bad. I have ideas. I have the drive. (at least the Saturday night before I do) Then I get busy. I work 50 hrs. I babysit. I have to clean my house and cook for my husband. I have to buy bingo prizes. I have a lot of excuses huh? I need to get a lasting burst of motivation. Too bad you can't buy that at Target.

Compliments: Yeah, it's hard to accept them. I didn't get many this week so that made it easy. My boss texted me one. IT felt really good. And I ignored the urge to turn it down. For me, that's big.

Here's to next week!

It IS hard to take compliments. I am glad that you are learning to accept them. People wouldn't say nice things if they were not true!

Lets work out together! Maybe that would help?

I know how it feels to be busy and not have the motivation after a long day, and I am not nearly as busy as you!

Good job Annie. I'm proud of you.

Go Annie! I'm proud of you for accepting that compliment. Princess of Everything is totally right- who would take the time to compliment someone if they weren't really thinking it?

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...
