I did it! ....sort of.


I did it!

As long as you count every vegetable you eat a couple of times, I totally rocked this weeks nutritional challenge.

I would be eating a salad, and I'd count up the veggies I saw "Tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers, I think that's an olive... this counts as 4!"

I really want to keep trying this one. If I am drinking all my water, and taking most of my meals and snacks in raw veggie/fruit form, I pretty much have to be healthy.

Right?

For the physical one, I actually did do a good job. Normally on the days when I'm not doing the 'Shred, I'll go for at least an hour walk on the treadmill (which, at a 15 percent incline, is actually pretty good). But this week? I probably walked for 15 hours. Just counting yesterday.

Amber just gave me a few new Jillian Michaels DVD's, and I still have that pilates one to break out. My personal goal for next week is to do one of the videos every day.

Wish me luck you guys.

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...
