This weeks challenge

Okay folks, this is how I did!

Nutritional challenge: I kept a food diary for 5 days... and man, I did not do a good job eating regularly this week. Also, the one week when we haven't had green drinks everyday is the week when I'm tracking what I've been eating. So, yeah. I kind of fail this week at eating what, and how often, I want.

Physical Challenge: I took my workout outside two times this week. Both times in the form of walking :-) Once was when I was at Lagoon: I did a ton of walking! And the other time was when I went for a walk around where I live. 

I thought about doing pilates on the little patch of grass outside my sliding door... but I thought of all the weird looks I'd get, and decided against it.

This week the challenges were pretty easy for me! The only hard parts were when Water Zumba was cancelled, and then trying to remember everything I ate Wednesday.

I'm hoping next weeks challenge will be something like "Hike Snow Canyon" or "Swim at Sand Hollow State Park beach" cause I'd have those covered!

Well... since I know it won't be that, I'm hoping it will at least be something I can do while on vacation :-)

Nice job! I think walking around Lagoon is a great way to exercise. You should do it every week. I hope you have an awesome trip!

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...
