I'm late!!

I know, we've moved on. But here's a little post that was supposed to go up last week.

I need to apologize. I have been suffering from blogging burnout.

Even on my own blog, Life in the Pitts- which is crazy, since for a year and a half I was posting every single day!

...Which might be why I burned out.

Over and over again I'd get in front of my computer, and just sit there. I had stories to share, but, well, they just wouldn't come out.

After a while I started feeling guilty for not blogging. And so I started avoiding even looking at the computer.

Which left you all hanging.

Instead of trying to make up for this last season in one post, I will just write out the basics of how I did.

I lost weight.


I lost 15lbs before Christmas. Not quite the 20 I was looking for, but I am not complaining.

...Of course, I gained back 5 of those pounds over the holidays.

But as of today, I am weighing in at 10 pounds less than the start of this season. I think that's pretty darn awesome.

I did it by trying to eat healthier, eat less, drink water, and exercise often. I wasn't doing all the challenges, which probably disqualifies me from winning. But for me, the best prize was on that scale this morning.

This time around, I am going to try and do better. To keep up that weight loss, and participate.

And I think I'm going to win.

Bring it, girls.

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...
