One Week In

Last week was our first of Season 4 and I have been enjoying it so far! I haven't used my cheat day (though I have had many temptations!) and have stayed away from meat (even ate veggie hot dogs on Sunday) and am excited to keep up my no meat challenge for the rest this season. Even though we didn't have to yet, I did the 'Ripped in 30' DVD twice last week! It made me super sore, so I did a pilates DVD to help stretch me out. My favorite one to do is the
10 minutes solutions: Pilates

It is great because you get a really good workout but it does a good job at stretching you out too. It has 5, 10 minute workouts you can play in a row, or do separately. I normally do 4 of them so it lasts about 40 minutes. It is my go-to workout, especially when I'm already sore from other workouts, it never fails to make me feel better!

Good work Amber! You got a nice head start... I didn't try the Ripped in 30 until we did it together. I also haven't tried that pilates yet... but I will!

Also, good job not having a cheat day yet! that's better than me :)

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...
