Challenge week 9!

New Here?

Each week we get 2 new challenges. Always a physical and then either an emotional or nutritional one. Challenges are posted and started Sunday. They go through Saturday. Next time you blog, tell us how you did! Be honest! Do good? Do bad? How do you feel?

Physical Challenge:

Range of Motion. Each day, even if you don't exercise, stretch. Stretching will help you increase muscle control, and be more flexible. It does not have to be long, Even 5 minutes is good. You will feel so good when you are done! Here are some stretches to try!

Emotional Challenge:

A key part of finding happiness is being grateful for what you have. Every evening this week, write down 5 things that happened that day that you are grateful for. Not getting stuck in traffic, dinner turning out better then you thought, getting to call someone you have been meaning to call, all of those could be things you are grateful for. The key is finding a way to be grateful and happy with the small things in life.

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!

Heléna, age 26

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...
