Weekly Challenge #1

In case you are new:

Each week we are given two challenges. These challenges will start on Sunday (usually) and go through the following Saturday. (click here to learn more about our weekly challenges)

At the end of the week, we will each write a post explaining our experiences with the challenges.

BE HONEST. If you failed the challenge, tell us why. If you rocked it, tell us how. Most importantly, tell us how you feel about it.

This week's challenges

Physical Challenge: Walk!

This week lets get a 20 min walk every day, that could be outside, in the gym, around the house or in place but get walking! You could take your spouse or a friend but whatever you do, just have fun with it!

Nutritional Challenge: Change It Up!

Try two new recipes this week! Find something a little healthier and make it, it can be breakfast, lunch or dinner, it could be fish, salad, soup or anything else! A good places to look is, ask around or exchange with someone on the blog!
And so this week, we are going to focus on eating healthy and try to keep it interesting!

About Annie

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!

Heléna, age 26

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...
