These challenges are good for the whole family.

I got home on Monday, and Kurt had cleaned the house all day. Like, he spent 8 hours cleaning.

"Wow, you're pretty amazing, dude."

He rolled his eyes, shrugged his shoulders, and mumbled something about how it wasn't that awesome.

"WHAT?? Are you being self deprecating??"

He blinked in confusion.

"Well, SOMEONE hasn't read this weeks challenge!"

His eyes got really big, and he started backing away.

"You need to learn how to be GRACEFUL AND CONFIDENT!!"

I lunged for his hand, intending to drag him over to the computer, so he could read the challenge post. But he turned and ran.

Poor thing. He was so overwhelmed with emotion.

See? Even confident guys can have a hard time accepting compliments.

On the bright side, I don't think he's going to make that mistake again.

You tell him. PS-can he clean my house? Or at least teach Jimmy?

I'll send him over.

That's right Helena, teach him to accept compliments!

He could clean mine too if he's in the area. I try, so does Michael, but most days after work I just want to relax...

Love the bat, and how the ladybug has one 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...
