Well tonight will end week 1 of the biggest loser competition. It has been a challenging week to say the least. Whoever choose to start the competition the week of July 4th was either totally crazy, or insanely brilliant. I believe there is a weigh-in tomorrow, so I will let you know my progress. My hope or goal is nine pounds for a couple of reasons. The first is I had lost by a scale at my job 5 pounds by last Wednesday, so I think nine is attainable. The second is if you remember in this post, my first goal was 25 by this thursday when I go see my doctor, so nine will hit that target. They ( the biggest loser administrator), said they are also going to have a leaderboard, so it will be interesting to see where I fit. They say there is over 60 people entered in this competition. I do want to win, but it is not the main objective. Come on, no one is going to turn down free money. But after the first week – here is the good, the bad and the ugly
One of my goals was to drink water, water and more water. After one week, I have held basically true to that. I have limited myself to basically one or two drinks of juice a day, and the rest of time water only. I know it should be 100% water, but 90% is a good start. And that is what I give most of the credit for the 5 pounds to by Wednesday, and why I really think that 9 is not out of the question.
One of my goals was working out 5 days a week for an hour and a half. Tonight after finishing this, will be my fourth time this week, so I did not reach my goal. I tried to do more than an hour and I am extremely exhausted after the hour and I was able to do 15 mins the one time, but did not do any more any other time. I did try, but I just am spent. So maybe I need to do more cardio first, then do my workout.
July 4th, what can I say. 2 cheeseburgers and 1 hot dog, 1 brownie, 1 small square of pound cake and 1 slice of cake. Not all at the same time – but all through the whole day. I have done so good staying away from sweets, but that definitely didn’t work that day. Thankfully July 4th only comes one time a year, and I don’t have any other holidays during this competition.
Overall, I think with the what I am doing by drinking almost nothing by water, this will make this week one of my best weeks throughout my journey, even though I may stumbled in other places. I will know tomorrow.
and the journey continues…..
