(Sorry guys, my home internet is broken.)

I did it! Yes yes yes! I did some strength training (pilates, some pushups, and I used that exciting weight machine that I took a nap on). I don't feel any difference, really, except my arms and pecs are sore. But I am going to be adding that to my weekly exercise.

And that awful challenge, where we are supposed to give up something that's bad for us? Well, I gave up dessert. It wasn't that hard, I just let Kurt do the shopping this week (he never buys anything yummy). I had some intense sugar carvings, but I satisfied them with fruit. And by satisfied, I mean placated. Because I definitely would have preferred chocolate.

And then I celebrated last night by going to a dessert night with some of the other students and their wives.

Hey, it's a start.

I can't believe how fast time is slipping by. If I'm going to make my goal this month, I'm going to have to get serious.

My plan? I'm going to make Kurt do my exercise videos with me.

He already said yes.

(And don't worry, I'll take pictures)

Good job Helena! You are awesome!

Sorry your internet sucks.

And I'm with Annie, I hope your good camera is working again so we can see some awesome pics of Kurt trying to do the 30 day shred :-)

At first when Michael heard the name, 30 Day Shred, he thought is sounded like it would be a girly workout. So I made him watch the intro, and now he says it looks like something they'd make you do at boot-camp. I might just make him do it too

i use fitclick to track all of my calories and workouts each and every day. it gives me a great idea of my net calories on a daily basis, as well as weekly breakdowns on my progress. i love the features that the site incorporates. it has some really helpful and useful tools like their BMR, body fat%, and BMI calculators.

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...
