Weekly Challenge #11

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: Build It Back UP!

I know most of you are still trying to get back into the swing of things, so this week the challenge is just to do two workouts of your choice. It doesn't have to be anything crazy, just make sure it happens twice, we have our weekly workout on Monday, that means you only have to find time to do ONE other workout in the next 5-6 days... I think you can do it!

Emotional Challenge: Take Time!

Sometimes it can be difficult to feel good about yourself but something as simple as taking time out to do something just for you, can make a world of differences! So this week pamper yourself in some way, it can be getting your hair or nails done, it could be taking time to read a book or have 'you time'. But whatever you do, find a way to feel beautiful or important!

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...
