This weeks challenge

Alrighty, it seems none of us did perfectly with the nutrition challenge 
(including me)

I know! After that huge post I did, I still didn't rock it? Crazy...
Well, we ran out of veggies and didn't go to the store right away, so I missed a few days of my full servings of daily veggies, but I did have veggies every day! 

I also didn't get all my fruits -any of the days. Like I said in this post, I don't put a ton of fruit in my drinks. So my fruit intake is lacking. But at least I get all my veggies most days!

(Annie, if you're interested you can try some juice -Michael and I recently got a juicer- the texture is not gross at all, I think you would like it!)

As for the physical challenge, I kicked it up a notch... kind of. I did the 30 day shred. Which I never do. And I played racquetball -which I'm going to start doing more regularly, but I rarely did it before.

So, I kind of stepped it up, but I only worked out twice this week. And I normally do it at least 3 times.

Oh well, I'll step it up more next week! :-)

Is Racquetball fun? It just sounds hard and painful to me.

Jimmy loves the racquetball. I'm glad you do too. I prefer not to get hit int he face with a ball.

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...
