Starting Weight for Biggest Loser Competition
Well, let the competition begin! Here is my weight as of yesterday. I had to get a new scale and I think that this one is a little more accurate to the one at my doctors office. I think it is about 2 pounds lighter than my last scale but that still means I lost 2 pounds. Now that the competition has began, it is my goal to
1) Eat Breakfast
2) Drink more water
3) Bite it...Write it (keep a food log)
4) Exercise daily, even if its only 20 mins
5) Wear the bodybugg
I have been doing really good with the exercise. I haven't exercised every day but I have done the "Shred" video several times and worked out with Tammye. Yesterday was weekend warrior. I made a big mistake! I had posted on Facebook one night after doing my video, "that I wasn't sure who was tougher..Tammye or Jillian". When I got to Weekend Warrior, Tammy told the entire group that I had challenged her and that she was going to show me who was tougher. She wins! The power hour almost killed me. My body is still weak when it comes to endurance. It is getting better. I feel strong and more in shape but need to work more on my higher intensity cardio and endurance.
After leaving the gym, I headed to the Maryville Mom's event "The Holiday Hangover". I got there late but in time to do the last 25 minutes of yoga. Felt so good to stretch out after my hard workout. We had healthy breakfast, yogurt parfaits and had a little time to visit. It was fun. I talked about the biggest loser competition and several people signed up. Then there was a lady that talked for a while about nutrition. I will be posting some of her ideas and tips very soon.
On my way from leaving I got a text from a friend. It said, "by the way, thanks for all the encouragement. I couldn't do this without it. You are not only motivating, but a source of inspiration. Just thought I'd give you a shout out! Thanks friend!" It feels so good to be motivating other people and with that I also know that those people are watching me. How can I be motivating or an inspiration to others if I myself am not doing what I need to do. I have really been slacking on my food log. I know that this is one of the most important things for me to do. If you don't log it then little things sneak in! That has got to be my number one priority. There have been tons of studies that show that just writing it down can make a huge difference in your weight loss success! I encourage all of you to write it too.
