Amber: Season Two

I am excited to get started! I won last 'season' and am hoping to kick butt this season too! My main motivation has been to be happier, when I exercise I feel better about everything, my body, my surroundings, my life! I love how I feel and losing weight has been an awesome side effect. Of course I wanted to change my body but that alone wasn't enough to motivate me, if I just focused on what I wanted different, it just depressed me and made me feel even worse about myself. It was when I focused on improving how I felt about how I looked (and I knew that the endorphins from working out really improved my self esteem) that is when I really became dedicated to working out regularly. So Here are my new goals for this 'season'-

  1. Be able to do 10 pull ups (I can only do one and a half right now...)
  2. Make healthy lunches during the week (instead of skipping or eating out)
  3. Lose 5 lbs
  4. See more muscle definition
  5. Workout at least 3 times a week

This is going to be fun! (Hopefully....)

It will be fun!

And I agree with Helena, you have a great attitude! :-)

Good job on last season again!! You worked really hard, and you deserved it.

You are a crazy exercise machine! You push yourself and that's great!

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...
