So, I just watched the season premiere of The Biggest Loser. It’s amazing how large the contestants have become. I have always wondered what it would be like to be on the ranch, and actually have that high of intensity for my weight loss. I know I have the capacity to perform at that level and succeed, but I also know that I do not have the emotional capacity to be away from my husband and daughter for an extended amount of time. Let alone my daughter’s ability to be away from me that long, as many of you know. If only I had unlimited resources, and could pay for a personal trainer and a gym membership, as well as a babysitter I would be in prime form. But, God gave me this path to take, and I will triumph over the obstacles that I have.
Today was a rough day in the food column. With little choices in the house to eat, so again it was scrambled eggs and oatmeal. For lunch we were in the car, so I had a Taco Bell Chicken burrito and dinner I tried out the Papa Murphy’s Delight pizza. All the food most likely had too much sodium and fat, but I did make it to the grocery store finally and am filled to the fridge's brim with salad fixings. I also went back to the turkey meats that are so low fat, and when cooked right taste the same as their high fat counterpart beef.
On the exercise front I am well on my way to doing that now. I was up and going to get it done this morning, but unfortunately Julia was too. So, I had to tend to her for the morning. Tonight I have Jon to coach me on though, and help me with the exercise I wasn’t able to do in the last work out. I have many friends who are also working towards a better self, and I’m so glad I can be part of that with them. For all of you who want to be your own Biggest Loser, I wish you sore muscles and hunger pains!
