WOW! It's been just about two weeks since I was all gung ho about starting a new blog and haven't said a word since. That is all about to change!
Two weeks ago I dragged my husband to the taping of Season 10, episode 1 of The Biggest Loser. Poor guy, he's not competitive and wants nothing to do with being anywhere near Jillian Michaels or anything related to The Biggest Loser and here I am dragging him to the taping and a workout challenge with Jillian. He did a great job and I thank him for supporting me all the way!
That day was simply amazing! It really felt like we were a part of something - something big. Listening to Mark Kruger from Season 5 talk about running the Boston Marathon and how "today" was our first step to greatness, and then working out with Jillian! I felt so inspired and really believe that I CAN do this! I was all set and ready to start my plan from that day forward until I started having a reaction to a thyroid medication that I protested taking in the first place. I began eating like I've never eaten before - binge after binge - but it wasn't like a binge. It felt more like having low blood sugar and scouring the cabinets for anything to take that horrid feeling away. After gaining another 6 pounds and persistent phone calls to the doctor, I took myself off the medication. It took a few days for the side effects to go away completely, but once they did I felt GREAT!
Last Tuesday night I decided to join The Biggest Loser Club . I need structure if I am going to stick to this! I took about an hour or so to go through the meal planning process, then I ordered my groceries from the shopping list they provide. I've been following the plan every day since. I also have been getting on the treadmill and doing the strength training exercises that they suggest. I can't wait til Tuesday to see how I am doing! I am already feeling like a million bucks -well, like a hundred thousand anyway. It never ceases to amaze me how quickly I can feel better with exercise and eating right. Why don't I stick with it? That's a topic for another day.
