Chantel -Season Two!

I don't know about you guys, but I'm psyched for Reasons to Lose Season 2!
It'll basically rock.

For those of you that are new, my name is Chantel,and I have loved doing Reasons to Lose. I'd never really  done any exercising until this blog. I was skeptical at first, but I've noticed so many differences in my health and stamina that I know I'll stick with it and I'm surprised I'd never tried it before!

I love to do things with family and friends, so this is a good way to have fun with them, as well as get me to stick to a healthier life-style. Reasons to Lose is awesome because I feel like I've gotten closer to everyone, which I love.

My husband Michael and I have been sticking to our green drinks every morning for breakfast for the past 5ish months, and despite what you may think, they are still awesome! 
If you have any questions about those, let me know :)

I've been thinking about what I want my goals to be for this season, and I'm not completely sure yet. I'll keep you guys posted on what else I come up with :-) 

Here's what I do know:

I want to tone up more -I do not want to be chiseled, but being able to see slight ab muscles would be nice
I am not good at running. I hate it with a passion in fact. But, a goal of mine is to give it a try (Katy -you'll meet her later- invited me to go running with her. So I'll start with that)
I want to be able to do 20 pull-ups (my limit right now is 10 on a good day)
And I would like to be able to do the advanced moves in level 1 on the 30 Day Shred

That's all I've got right now. But 3 months is a long time, and we'll see what happens :-)

So far, I haven't gotten my usual fall sickness. Which is like a record for me!
I normally get sick for over a month in the fall/winter time. And working out has definitely made a difference. 

Now I just hope I didn't jinx it...

Here's to this season being awesome!
I hope you guys all participate in our weekly challenges and link up how you did :-)

I bet you will rock this season :) I can't believe how many pull up you can do, that is just crazy! Good luck!

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...
