Friday I'm In Love

Hello Everyone!

Well the weekend is upon us again. We will be going to Sharbot Lake for three days and we can't wait. There is so much to do there, so I should get tons of exercise.

Took a break from the gym on Wednesday and I am not so sure it was a very good idea. Bottom line is that I managed to do thirty minutes and I had to stop. I wasn't out of breath, but my body felt like it was trying to work through tar. It was brutal. Colin says that I need to take a day off, but I hated the way i felt after. Doesn't bode well for when I get back to personal training on Monday!

So back to the gym tonight. I plan on trying to do my sixty minutes, plus some weights. But we have a lot to do before we leave tomorrow, so I have to be sure I don't hang out there all night chatting with Marlene! She is such a great distraction. I like knowing someone and having a "workout" buddy....well sort of. She runs and I do elliptical training.

Gotta go and try to eat lunch while the little buddy is playing. He is so CUTE!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Weigh In Week Five

Holy Cow! Exercise makes the difference.

Down 3.1 Pounds this week. Fabulous. And how I managed that with the Superbowl party, I will never know lol!

I have gone to the gym everyday this week and worked with Emma, my personal trainer every second day. I am currently doing 15 sets 2 reps of crunches x3 and working on the universal weight machines. And sixty minutes of cardio on the elliptical.

But today is a rest day. Connor is getting his needles today, so I am not going to get a chance to go. But that's ok, everyone needs to rest.

It is so cold. I am whipping up something healthy but suitable for today's weather for dinner. But shhhhh, it's a surprise!

Biggest Loser Day One

Hello! I hope that everyone is feeling as great as I am this morning!

I have been to the gym everyday since I joined and it feels fabulous. I can't begin to tell you how great it feels to be exercising again. I didn't realize just how much I missed it. I also began my personal training sessions. My trainers name is Emma and she says that I am a very good student. So I am hoping that my next class on Saturday is good.

Last night I got a body composite done. Basically it sends a shock wave through your body and comes back with a whole bunch of information for you. So this is the verdict:

Weight-240.1 pounds (keep in mind, I had just worked out, was fully clothed with shoes and it was six at night! Normally I weigh myself naked, first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach.)
Fat - 101.1 Pounds
Lean Muscle Mass - 54%
Water - 43.3%
BMI - 39

My water was lower than it should have been. It needed to be above 50%. So I have to drink more water! Like that is going to be possible......

The Biggest Loser Competition starts at the gym today. Tomorrow I go in to have my measurements taken. The person that has lost the most at the beginning of April WINS! So I am more than determined to do it.
