My local gym is hosting a "The Biggest Loser Contest" And Guess what I signed up!! and boy am I ever glad I did. This challenge will run 1o weeks . We are broken up into teams of 6. Within the team we try to get together for the work outs.. If we can't all make it at the same time we try to get in and make up the work out. It is great motivation, not only do I want to succeed and lose the weight I am trying to drop.. but I want to keep my team motivated..
We received a handout, with a breakdown of the work out in both a beginner and advanced.. I am beginner. Also in the hand out is goes into detail about how you should eat and gives numerous meal ideas. I feel like this was the push to get my motivation back.
At the end of the meeting we had our Weigh in... and you know what i was not in the least bit mortified to have my weight announced to the group.. I have worked hard to get to where I am..187lbs on my scales 188lbs on the gym scales.. I have a lot further to go and can not wait to hear the number being announced at the end of the 10 week program..
Here I am on the Leg Press.. making sure I have the right form, and my feet are where they should be.. Another Awesome advantage is that our progress will be documented both inside the gym, with our teams, our last chance work outs.. We will be venturing out for Cross Country skiing next week.. As a whole group.. Should be great!!!
I am also planning on picking up a copy of the Jillian Michales 30 minuet Shred DVD... and getting that incorporated into my routine..
