Two In One

I guess I'll do my weekly update and the recap of how I did on the challenge all in this one post.

Both my week and this challenge went well for me, I wrote my post about motivation and I started using 5 pound weights in my workouts instead of my old 3 pound ones! That makes working out even tougher but I like the challenge of it :)

As for my week, I played racquetball one day, did the 30 Day twice and did my new Pilates DVD once!
I have really enjoyed this pilates DVD, I have only done it once but it is very different then the others I have tried, there is just something about the unique moves that seems to keeps me interested! This week I am hoping to continue pushing hard and I am also hoping my 5 pound weights get easier to use!

Good work Amber!

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...
