Lets Get Started

Last week I was really sick and didn't get a single workout in (I think I had a good reason, not being able to stand for long periods of time helped me to decided to give up on working out this week!) so the physical challenge this week didn't happen. I thought I would dominate the nutritional challenge this week because I already moderate (or have eliminated) the 'bad stuff' in my diet but with being sick I reverted to some comfort foods (like Ice cream...) as I was miserable in bed. My super sweet Hubby went to the store and stocked up on some of my more 'moderated' foods and surprised me, it definitely lifted my spirits and I really appreciated it! SO yeah... I really failed this weeks nutritional challenge :) but normally I eat great...

This week I am really excited to get back to my workouts! I have actually really missed working out, I just don't feel as good and am much happier when I am working out regularly, I find that I have more energy and just feel better about myself! So this week I really looking forward to pushing myself, starting with 'the shred' with Chantel and Annie tonight!

I guess it's a good excuse :-P

I'm glad you're better. And don't worry, you're still awesome.

Yeah, I'm glad we did the Shred tonight :)

About Annie

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...
