Does anyone else have a hard time thinking of titles for blog posts?

Anyway, I rocked the challenges last week!
I did my four meals of no simple carbs! It wasn't very difficult. For one of the meals I made some brown rice and mixed in some chicken breast, cream of chicken soup, some seasonings and crackers on top. Not really special  delivery chicken, but a quick substitute.

I also did my outdoor workouts! Hiking and swimming in St. George made up most of them. I also went for a walk! I love the great outdoors! 

I would have gone for a bike ride, but I don't have a bike. I want to get a bike, and I'm loving this one and this color too
and they are on sale! Can't beat that :-)

But then again, to cut down on gas this bike might be good. Thought WAY too expensive.
Anyway, when Michael and I have some more money, we're going to get some bikes!

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!

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...
