It's nearly Christmas!
I'm excited :-)

As you can tell by the look of the blog, it's been a busy holiday season.

I'm looking forward to doing more challenges -after the holidays are over ;-)
I want to eat my weight in cookies first, and then I'll definitely be motivated to keep going with this!

Also, my body needs to heal before I can do an intense workout again.
On Sunday I was racing my sweet husband to our car and I slipped on some mud and hit the pavement hard.
It still hurts.

My right palm and left hip are swollen and bruised. My hip has an especially nasty bruise, and is very painful.
But I'm healing! and taking it easy.

So, I'm motivated to sit back, relax and enjoy the holidays, and then to start back up with Reasons to Lose after things settle down!

How are you guys doing? Still working out, or waiting til after Christmas?

I know Thanksgiving is past, but most people have a big Christmas feast as well. Here are some tips to help in case you don't want to eat your weight... though I don't know who wouldn't be into that. sort of thing.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

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!

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...
