Season 4 Challenge 2

In case you are new:

Each week we are given two challenges. These challenges will start on Sunday and go through the following Saturday.

At the end of the week, we will each write a post explaining our experiences with the challenges.

BE HONEST. If you failed the challenge, tell us why. If you rocked it, tell us how. Most importantly, tell us how you feel about it.
This week's challenges

Physical: This week get your blood pumping! Three times this week do at least 20 minutes of cardio exercise. It doesn't need to be fancy but if you can breath and talk normally than you aren't pushing quite hard enough. You can dance, do a workout or rush around a store while shopping but get that heart rate up!... Though I can't promise you won't get funny looks if you do your carsio in the store... I'm just saying.

Nutritional: This week have a veggie meal, by making the main course with vegetables! It could be a large salad, a veggie burger, eggplant parmesan or anything else and then give us your recipe! Do that for at least two meals this week! And add an extra point to the completed challenge if you do it 4 times!

AND remember our continual challenge this season is to do the Ripped in 30 DVD twice each week.

Good luck!

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...
