How I did on this weeks challenge

My internet has been completely stupid up til now, and I didn't get to publish my post sooner because of that. Luckily my awesome husband was able to fix it :-)

This week we got to pick our own challenges, which was fun but difficult at the same time.

For my physical challenge I decided I would have to do tummy crunches for at least one minute every day, and I also gave myself the challenge to practice tai chi at least 3 days last week

And for my nutritional challenge I wanted to do better with not eating processed foods, and so I wanted to cut back and not have any processed foods for at least two days last week

I did pretty good! I missed one day of crunches, I practices tai chi regularly, and I aced my nutritional challenge!
It was a pretty rad week... minus the stress of my last paper :-P

Annie and I also did an awesome dance workout on Monday, it was pretty great! I think I was sweating more after that than I have after a workout in a long time...

It's so hard to believe that we only have 9ish days left! Crazy!

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...
