The Biggest Loser... I survived!

Goodness!  I survived my week at the Biggest Loser camp!

So I went with the plan to test my limits... to see what I needed to change to show a change in my body.   What I did not anticipate was the wonderful people I would meet.
Here are a few of us after our Last Chance Workout.  It was totally fun and we earned our Biggest Loser Headbands... trust me, it was sort of a big deal.  
Our workout was crafted by Michael (or trainer in the maroon shirt.)

 AND this sweet thing, Catherine!

This was how it worked.  
We broke into teams of 3, then we would spin the wheel.  
This dictated the exercise we had to do.
  Then we would race and do these exercises as fast as we could... ouch!
The trainers would cheer when we spun this one.
  So this morning I said good-bye to these incredibly brave men and women.  Some of them traveled from other continents to take control of their own health. We ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner together...We sweated buckets together... AND we literally climbed mountains together. 
I am forever changed from this experience.
By the way... I also lost 8 pounds.

Last Chance Workout and Sale updates

Last night Marie Pearl from Season 15 offered a spin class.  I have to be honest, I have not watched The Biggest Loser in a long time, but I was game!   She was so inspirational.   Since this was an optional class, many of the other campers called it a night.  We did have a few of the contestants from the current season (Season 16) attend the class, but they are not allowed to be photographed.  They are such sweet people who are working hard, so I will be routing for them with all my heart!

So tomorrow I have this to look forward to!
Kidding... Jillian won't be there, but it will be our "last chance workout."   
According to my calculations, this will be hours and hours of sweat.  Yay!  

I asked for this... right?

Then I will face the scale on Sunday morning.   No, I won't have to stand there in my sports bra while others watch, but I do hope to see that dang needle drop by a few pounds.  I will report in.

In honor of the last chance workout (and because I am so dang tired), I will but my entire store on sale on Saturday and Sunday!

Biggest Loser Day 3... (and Christmas in July Sale)

Today is the last day to get my Writing Work Stations on Sale.  Each month looks a little like this.  I finished revising these a few months ago, so you can get the revised version by going to "My Purchases"

Biggest Loser Update

Yesterday this was the view from our hike.

  It was a long, LONG hike, but it was worth the sweat!

After the hike we had some gym time!  Here is the Mr. getting ready to do some interval cardio work. (This is code for PAIN.)
Then we had kickboxing... I have never laughed so hard in my life. 
(Disclaimer:  I have not worn make-up all week.)
After kickboxing we had a pool class.   Add it up folks... about 6 hours of cardio work!
I need a nap!

Here is how it went down today.
