First week

I have to tell you guys, I'm already working out more during the weeks than I normally do... 
I usually work out 2 times a week. Sometimes less. ;-P

But I've been working out with Bryn to help her be motivated to win her offices Biggest Loser. Last week I worked out three times with her (two days in a row at one point) and I've already worked out 3 times this week and I'm not even done yet! I plan on working out Saturday too, and maybe tomorrow... but I'm not sure yet. (that isn't counting the walking everyday for this weeks challenge)

I did the Ripped in 30 again today, and I did the 30 day shred yesterday. 
It's only the first week in but I already feel like I've been working super hard at this.

It feels good though. Aside from the sore muscles that is.

One thing that I'm thinking I'm going to try with my diet is dairy-free pudding. Amber told me about it, and now I'm interested :)
My diet is coming along alright, but not great. Not yet.

One thing that makes me lose motivation is sore muscles and not feeling well. When I feel nauseated, really full, have a headache, tummy ache or my back is hurting it's hard to be motivated to work out. Any suggestions?

In other news I will hopefully hear from Dr. Cousins tomorrow. Please keep that whole situation in your prayers. I'm hoping he'll believe me.

One suggestion for working out when you feel crappy, is to take it light. Do one of the pilates dvd's or something low impact, that way you are still doing something but it won't make you feel worse (It could even make you feel better!)

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...
