Only 18 days left!?

It just hit me today that there really are only 18 days left in this season!

Last week, as you know, I did the level 4 of Ripped in 30! I didn't blog after my second time doing it, but it went faster than the first time.

I made working out fun twice as well! 
One of those times was when Michael and I went hiking on one of his friend's birthdays (last Saturday). It was about a 5 hour hike (I told you 3 hours Annie, but I was mistaken). We left around 8, and got back after 1:30. It was hard. It was a really tough hike, very steep and tiring. But it was so very worth it, and lots of fun!

I have to tell you, I am so glad that I've been working out, because it built up my stamina more; I know that had I not been doing Jillian Michaels, there would be no way I could have finished that hike without at least 20 more rest breaks.

It was a lot of fun though! My favorite part was coming down. Down the side of the canyon there are some small loose orangish colored rocks that we slid down (on purpose) it was very fun! And it cut back our climb down by at least 30 minutes. I'll have to post a pic of it sometime.

I've also received the emotional challenge letter from Michael, and I've been working at believing the things he says, and trying to see myself the way he see's me. 
How has that been going for you guys?

If you have any challenges in particular that you want to do before the season is up, let me know!

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...
