My final update for season 4

Hey guys, another "season" of Ripped in 30 has come to a close.
And so it's time to let you know how I did

With last weeks challenges:
Physical: I gave it 100%! 
Nutritional: I had my four meals of no meat- it was really easy for me
Emotional: I listened to Jillian's motivational speech at the end of the DVD

Now for my overall update:

As you know I've been working out with Bryn throughout this season nearly every week. Almost every week during these three months looked like this: I would do the Ripped in 30 with you guys on Monday, on Wednesday morning I would do the 30 Day Shred with Bryn, and then on Friday I would do Ripped in 30 again with Bryn. 
Of course, it would vary sometimes, but that was mostly how it would look :-)

I'm proud of myself. I've pushed myself harder in this season than any of the others.
And I really see and feel the difference.

I revisited the goals we were all supposed to write down in the beginning of this cycle and I'm pleased to say that I have met them all! 
Of course there's still room for improvement with all of them, but I've seen some great advancement in each area which was my main goal :-)

I've lost a little bit of weight (which is weird to me, because I know I've gained muscle), and I've seen some changes in the inches. My body fat and BMI went down a little as well. 

But what I'm really excited about are the changes I can see and feel. 
Especially those in my endurance, health, confidence and just over all well being.
and that I can see some definition of course ;-)

I feel great! 
And I am really very proud of how hard I pushed myself and how far I feel I have come.

Also, I'm pleased to announce that I purchased 3lb weights a few weeks ago and I have been using them each time I work out :-)

As for the weekly challenges:
I have a total of 22.5 points :-)
Amber you beat my by half a point! Good job!

We've been doing this for a year now, I'm very proud of all of you. <3

Chantel, good job! You rocked at putting up and completing challenges! I am happy you noticed a difference and feel better!

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...
