Feeling Better

This last week, I have been feeling much better but after doing level 2 of the 6 week six pack, I have decide I'm not doing well enough! After I was done with that workout, I thought I might have died... but unfortunately it was not meant to be and I was still very much alive and kicking. Because level 2 is a lot of intense cardio and I am still very stuffed up, I decided that I should take a brake form the six week 6 pack... because I can't breath when i'm doing it :( but don't worry as soon as my nasal passages are up to it, I will start right back up! So my workout week wasn't as strong as normal but I still got three workouts done (6 week six pack, a resistance band workout and a pilates with a stability ball workout) and a half hour game of laser tag! So I was able to complete the physical challenge of keeping your heart rate up three times this week for a half hour! The nutritional challenge wasn't as successful. I had some fruit (I had a bowl of fruit on the counter that I purchased but most of it wasn't ripe.... which put a damper on the whole eating it thing) so most of my fruit was in dessert form... Crapes with cream cheese filling, stuffed with strawberries and toped with whipped cream (home made of course), chocolate covered strawberries (also home made) and some cantaloupe (not a dessert and not homemade). I feel pretty good about how I did overall, even with all the desserts :)

I hope you meant fortunately not unfortunately ;-) I'm glad your dying wasn't meant to be!

Good work Amber! and I am now craving chocolate covered strawberries...

Laser tag was fun and you were so good! I like your healthy treats!

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...
