I guess I wasn't motivated enough to write my post on time...

But at least I'm writing it now!
I had every intention of writing this one Tuesday and then scheduling it... LoL, but things kept coming up.

That's the way it is with working out too, isn't it?
Things keep coming up.

So, we put working out, eating healthy, drinking water and all those things on the back burner. Cause really, we have more time... right?

Guys. It is so important to stay motivated! We all have more than $20 on the line. We also have our health. 

I know from experience that in a few years we'll wish we'd done more, we'll look back and regret it... and I don't want any of us feeling this way! 
(I'll tell you all about what I was regretting later)

 So, what can we do?
I wrote some tips here, I challenge you all to go back and read it, and pick some to do -and stick to it.

I know that if someone tells me I can't do something, that makes me want to prove I can. So, sometimes I'll ask Michael to tell my I won't have enough energy to work out three times this week, or something like that, to make me feel that burn to prove myself. 
If you guys are the same, maybe you could have your husbands/friends/us challenge you

Here's what I think we should do.
Each of us think of something you really really want, and tell us what it is in your next post.
And we will work together to make sure none of us get that thing we really want, until we meet our goals.

What do you guys think? Are you up for the challenge? 

I can call and talk to each of your husbands/friends to make sure they know you are not allowed to get said thing until you meet your goals.

Lets get serious about this.

So tell me, what is it you really, really want? What is the thing you are willing to get healthy for?

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...
