The Golden Gate Bridge

Okay so I didn't post last week but that was because I was out of town for my 4 year wedding anniversary, my awesome husband and I went to San Fransisco for a week! The only thing I did on the internet was check my email and I only did that because it is set up on my phone and it would notify me every time I got an email, so no blogging for me. Last week's challenge was perfect, because we got to decide our own challenges! Since I was going to have an unconventional week (eating all our meals out and staying in a hotel away for all my workout stuff) I'm glad I could pick challenges that would fit with my vacation. Nutritionally my goal was to just try and eat as well as I could, I wanted to still be able to have/eat all the fun stuff going on vacation offers but I didn't want to go overboard. I was able to do pretty well, I didn't over eat and I tried to make healthier choices, in the end I think I did a good job of it and I never felt crappy after eating (which can been a challenge in its self when you are eating a bunch of processed foods!). Physically my goal was to workout at least once 'officially' and make sure I did a good amount of walking so that I stayed active! I met those goals too, I brought my Yoga meltdown DVD and did that one day, and we did a ton of walking!

happy 4 years! congratulations. :)

And good work! I don't like working out on vacations, so you did much better than I would! It definitely worked out that you could create your own challenges, that's good :)

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...
