Happy Thanksgiving!

I know, I know... I'm a day late in posting. I'm sorry! 
But, Happy Thanksgiving! 

I hope you all have been earning the right to indulge in all of the wonderful food provided in your feasts! I was doing some squats earlier, I think that earns me bonus points.

And of course drinking lots of water too! Water really is a wonderful thing. And it can be hard to remember to drink when it isn't hot outside, so I think it's great that we are having this challenge now as it turns to a bitter cold.

In case you guys are having a hard time with drinking water, here is a post I wrote last season about the benefits of drinking water, as well as the side effects of not drinking enough. I hope it gives you motivation :-)

I am thankful for so many things, water included :-P 
But also my life, my husband, my family, my friends and my body. I am so grateful that I have this wonderful body, and I want to make sure I keep treating it right.

What are you thankful for?

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...
