How I Did

Amber and I worked out the same muscles! Yeah!

I did my calves, and it was hard sometimes. But good. When I'm in the clean room at work I stand a lot, especially when I'm cleaning bottles or tanks, which worked out perfectly. I too came up with a lot of different variations of going up to my toes and lowering down. My favorite was probably going up for 8 counts, holding it for 8, and lowering down for 8. I could feel the burn!

And I also noticed a difference at the end of the week! I think my calves look and feel stronger.

I also recorded what I ate, and I notice I should probably cut back on nighttime snacking. It's nearly always popcorn or tortilla chips. Late at night I tend to crave salt.

I've been noticing a lot of physical changes this cycle, it's fun

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...
