I took a week off...

From blogging, but not from working out!

I apologize for not blogging last week, I had an off week with the computer, I didn't even write on My Thoughts and Treasures! So don't take it personally!

By the way my new day to blog is Thursday, so I'm not late this week! ;-)

Alrighty! Last week I should have told you about week 6 challenges, which were to do something you've been avoiding and focus on portion sizes.

I totally aced it. Kind of.
I ran again, which I had been avoiding! And I did more pull ups, which I've also been avoiding.

As for the portion sizes, I tried to be aware and eat what my body actually needs, and not over-stuff myself. I didn't follow any real guidelines, but I did eat slower and stopped once I began to feel full. 
I felt great! Not sluggish or overstuffed. It was nice. I'm trying to keep that up :-)

And now for the week 7 update:

I had a hard time finding an app that I liked, but after a while I got the "Fooducate" "Ab Workouts free" and "Jillian Michaels Slim-Down Solution" I haven't used them all yet, but I played around with the Ab one and did some of those workouts.

And I worked out outside! I only did it once, but I did it!
and I helped David, dad and JoAnn move, which was a workout :-)

I'll do my best to not skip a week blogging again! It helps me to stay motivated, and hopefully it helps to motivate you :-D

How are you doing so far this week? 
Already I haven't used the stairs everyday... oops!

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...
