I'm really happy

We're almost done! 

So, last week I did workout with Michael.
It was fun.

We didn't do Jillian Michaels, but we played tag with our nieces and nephew! It was quite a workout.

And I've been thinking about positive changes I would like to make in my life. Here are some of them:
Be more crafty
Be more proactive
Face my fears more
Procrastinate less
Manage time better
Improve my talents

I've also been thinking about how far I've come since we've started this blog. 
I have a lot more stamina and endurance, I'm stronger, healthier and I feel really confident.

Some of the biggest changes I've seen have been muscle definition in my arms, calves and a little in my abs. One of the biggest changes I've seen in my working out is that I can actually do the push-ups! That's a pretty big deal to me; in the past I would be able to bend my elbows slightly, but now I can really do them!

I have loved getting into the habit of working out because now I can do things like hiking, swimming and running without getting as tired and worn out as I would in the past. I can also hold children in my arms for a lot longer without even starting to get tired.

I feel like I've come a long way, and I'm really happy with the progress I've made.

I'm looking forward to hearing how you guys feel about the progress you've made since starting Reasons to Lose!

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...
