Room for improvement.

Sorry this is late. I was so busy this weekend lifting weights and running marathons, I couldn't make it to the computer.

(No really, I exercised)

The physical challenge was hard for me this week. It seemed so simple- anything I do inside can be done outside, right? But for some reason, this one didn't happen. I'm blaming the weather.

On the upside, I exercised every single day this week. I know that wasn't the challenge, but I think it deserves some recognition. Go me.

The food diary was really interesting. I wasn't perfect at it, but I totally tried. And looking over it today, I can see a lot of areas for improvement. I am going to give Amber's program a try- it sounds pretty awesome. And I can't imagine counting calories the old fashioned way. Too much math.

Plus her program will be a little more technical than my method.

(this is a tuna fritter.)

See? Room for improvement.

What, exactly, is a tuna fritter?

WTG on your daily exercise! :) I'm finally feeling up to snuff to get back into the game! YAY!

Okay, I have to laugh at the part on your list where you wrote.. "Something with beans??" If I don't log things in right away when tracking food/calories, I can never remember either.

Briana, I added a link to the fritter recipe at the bottom! And Theresa, that was the hardest part. I thought I would remember everything, but my advanced age is starting to get to me.

Tuna.......Yuck. Pie in the sky? Yuck. I am proud of you-I had a tough week too.

Love your list! I had a hard time remembering everything sometimes too.

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...
