I'm back!!

Hey guys, it's been a while.

Here's an update on how my bruise 

It's been traumatic. 
My being anemic is another reason it has stayed so long.

But I can workout now!
I kicked off working out for the first time since my bruise last week. Working out did agitate my bruise, and so I took a lot of breaks.

Last week I worked out twice. Woohoo, I got that challenge! 

 I started with pilates. I figured that would be a good way to ease my body back into moving more than to and from the car. And I was right! It was nice, relaxing, gave my back an excellent stretch... 

Then I went and pushed myself a little too hard...

I did P90X for the first time. The ab ripper. And oh my word... I have no words... I did it on Saturday and I was still feeling achy Monday... that was the.worst.

To be fair, it is a really good workout, and I'm sure it's very effective. It was just so hard.
The pilates didn't hurt my bruise, but the P90X killed. Almost literally.

Maybe we should all do it together sometime! When I'm no longer injured. But be warned, I will take about 50 breaks.

As for the emotional challenge, I still haven't decided on the resolution. But I will! My goal is to decide by this weekend.

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...
