Nailed It!

I didn't post yesterday (my assigned blogging day) because of Valentines Day, so even though I will be posting on Annie's day, I still wanted to let you all know how I did!

The challenges were to get rid of junk food and eat healthy snacks and to workout while watching TV (at least during the commercials)

I didn't have any snacks to really throw out at home but I did stock up on some good stuff, I got a ton of fruits and veggies and also I made smoothies to eat at work for when I got hungry (I added ground up oatmeal, it made them super filling and thick)

I, like Annie, used my balance ball to sit on as I watched TV (a good core workout) I would sit on it the whole time and then on the commercials I would lift weights. My husband looked at me like I was crazy as I started lifting weights but I kept at it anyway :)

My week of workouts went well too!

Monday- Level 2 of the 30 Day Shred (with Annie, Chantel and Helena Via Skype)

Tuesday- Jillian Michaels, Six Week 6 Pack (I was already so sore from the Shred...)

Wednesday- Jillian Michaels, Six Week 6 Pack (I started to get sick that day so my energy wasn't as good)

Thursday- Jillian Michaels, Six Week 6 Pack (I was definitely sick, I had to fight to be able to stick through the whole workout but I did it!)

Friday- Nothing, I had an unexpected visitor come over, so I wasn't able to workout (turned out to be a good thing because I was really sick)

Saturday- Jillian Michaels, Six Week 6 Pack (normally this is my day off but I was making up for taking Friday off. I still wasn't feeling great but I did it!)

I was very impressed with all the smoothies you brought to work! Great job!

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...
