This past week I didn't exactly ace... Things started off with Valentines day, I decided I would do an extra workout on Saturday, so I could take the day off and spend my evening with my husband. No big deal I knew I could easily make that up... I didn't, however, account for getting sick :( It was bad... I could barely get out of bed, let alone do my normal workouts and the physical challenge of running twice! I was able to do one workout on Tuesday with Annie and Chantel (Helena wasn't available) but that was before I really got hit with whatever it was I caught! Even though I was physically unable to work out, I still felt like I was letting myself down. I had been doing so well with the 6 Week Six Pack Program and now I have to go back a week and start it over. I know I shouldn't, but I really feel like I somehow failed. I did, however, read the article like we were supposed to and I really enjoyed it. Those are some of the things I have been trying to do in my life, so it was nice to see I'm on the right track! Yesterday (Sunday) was the first day I felt up to doing a workout, so I jumped right back into my 6 Week Six Pack, even though it was harder than it normally is, it felt so good to be working out again! I am now feeling almost completely better, so I have have high hopes for this coming week!

Good job getting back on the 6 pack wagon!

I can't believe you didn't ease yourself back into working out! No, actually I can believe it. Cause you're crazy.

I hope you feel better and get rid of your Angelina lip.

Eew. I'm glad you're feeling better. And glad you waited until after Valentines Day to get sick.

Wait, what? Angelina Lip?

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...
