Oh, man.

My personal goal this week was to do a DVD every day. But I was never alone in the apartment without my in laws- and it is way too small for my panting and grunting to go unnoticed, even from the other room.

**Note to self- learn how to grunt quieter.**

For the Self Esteem Challenge, I decided to choose 2 things I like, and 1 thing I need to learn to like- or at least be ok with. And then I focused on finding something positive about that thing for the day.

For example: the pooch on my lower belly. Not a fan. But I am a fan of the way it protects my ovaries. Someday, I'm going to want to use those.

My big goal for September is to lose 15lbs. I know, that's intense. But hey, you've gotta dream big, right?

What is your big goal?

Next time I say you let them hear you grunt and wonder at what is going on. And, I think you should do it in the bathroom. That makes it more fun.

Good work though! You're doing awesomely.

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...
