A Few Days Late

Hey guys! I didn't blog on Tuesday because I spent all day in the airport. My husband Dave and I were in St. Louis visiting his sister and her family last week. Travelling made it so keeping up with everything was a bit more difficult, but I did pretty well considering! We left last Wednesday, so I did the ripped in 30 before I left (I ended up doing it 3 days in a row, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday). I also got my heart rate up 3 times last week (really it was more than 3 times, we had 6 of our nieces and nephew to hang out with all week... There was a ton of physical activity to keep up with!). I had one meal with vegetables as the main course (I ate that before I left) but seeing as I wasn't making the food when we were out of town, I didn't get two in. I did however eat a ton of vegetables each night at dinner, so i'm going to count that to complete the challenge (if I was at home last week I wouldn't count that as a meal but because it was the best I could do under the circumstance, I think it is fair... if anyone has a problem with it, let me know!).

I'm excited to be on level 2 of the ripped in 30, how did you guys like doing it? I really liked it, so far this is one of my favorite Jillian Michaels DVDs, though i'm a little scared to try level 4!

Nice pic! And good work Amber!! Especially for traveling. I rarely workout when I'm on vacation. And by rarely I mean never.

Also, 3 days in a row for the Ripped in 30?!? Are you insane?

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...
