Season Three

Time sure does fly!
I'm psyched about season three, and I'm looking forward to trying to stick to a diet. 
I've never really done that before :-)

One thing I heard recently, and I'm not sure if it's 100% accurate, but I read that the average person needs to workout three times a week for 20-30 minutes in order to maintain their weight

That really puts it into perspective for me

I thought I'd pass that on, in case we're part of that average, then we might just need/want to step it up a notch... Something to think about.

In any case, I am really excited to get things going again, and get cracking on some challenges!

What are some ways you guys are going to stay motivated?
Here are some tips I found online

A goal I have for this season is to get slight ab definition.

Nothing drastic, don't worry! 
I am not a fan of the bulky muscles :-P

I'm thinking more like Jillian Michaels and not more defined than that

Anyway, that's one of my goals. 
I'd love to hear some of yours!

AND I haven't decided which diet I'm going to do yet... I'll post again when I decide :-)
Have you chosen yet?

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...
