Challenge #2

I thought I would easily ace this challenge, I normally don't say negative things about myself and I have been consistently doing 3 weekly workouts, so keeping my heart rate up shouldn't have been hard either... My week turned out to be a lot more stressful than normal and I caught myself being negative, luckily I would notice it as it was happening and even though I was in a really bad mood, I would stop and think of two positive things and complement myself with them. Strangely, it made me proud to be able to have the self control to do it and I think I am going to make this a regular habit.

On the physical end of things, I kind of got my cardio in... I didn't do all my normal workouts but I have been pretty active this past week (hauling Christmas stuff up and down from the basement all week has defiantly been a workout in its self!) So I'm going to say I completed that part of the challenge too :)

Good work! I think the self esteem challenge is great! we should all keep it up!

And hauling Christmas stuff definitely counts!

You're are so on top of this! I feel left in the dust (do I have to compliment myself about that? It is, after all, true.)Keep up the good, no superb, no exceptional work!

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...
