Are We Done Already?

At the beginning of this season I made some goals for to accomplish by the time we were done with this 'season'... things didn't go exactly how I had planned. I tried but honestly I didn't do very well on all of my goals. I didn't do a single pull up (oops!) and wasn't as good about bringing my lunches to work as I should have been. These were my goals-

  1. Be able to do 10 pull ups (I can only do one and a half right now...)
  2. Make healthy lunches during the week (instead of skipping or eating out)
  3. Lose 5 lbs
  4. See more muscle definition
  5. Workout at least 3 times a week
Here are the things I did manage to do, I lost 4.5 pounds (Pretty close to my 5lb goal), I didn't always workout 3 times a week but I did a pretty go job of it and I definitely see more muscle definition! So I wasn't too far off my goals, I think the holidays had a role in me not always giving it my all but I still feel pretty good about my progress. I ended up losing about a half inch around my thighs and waist, my hips stayed the same though, which leads me to believe that I am getting close to the ideal weight for my body type! So that is exciting! Now I get to work on toning up further and continuing to push myself :)

Good work Amber!

I agree with Annie, you do a great job at pushing us and yourself. You're a great example. And you probably won again :) How did your BMI change? Is that still how we're determining the winner?

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...
