So the weigh-in for the biggest looser challenge at my gym is 2 days away. I have no idea where I will end up in the competition. I am not sure that I care and I haven't been weighing in each week w/them. At home, of course, all the time. I am nervous to see if 6 weeks really did make an impact. However the contest did keep me going and lots happened in that 6 weeks:
a)trip to vegas
b)trip to san diego
c)my b-day bbq
d)started w/a personal trainer
e)out of town trip for work
and I'm sure a few other things I've forgotten about. I wasn't perfect everywhere but knowing the contest was there helped to keep me focused and make better choices. I didn't drop as much pounds as I thought I would but I think I have more muscle. I can feel it, in my arms, in my legs, and in my shoulders and back. I feel stronger running and can run faster for longer.
I don't know how the weigh-in will go but I do know that it was worth it and w/all the traveling and craziness the last month or so it would have been hard to stay focused w/out that incentive. I'll post how I did later this week so I can see what the difference is.
Saturday is Pat's Run a 4.2 mile run. It will be good and I am excited for it. I have a run this Saturday and then a 5k next Sunday. It's very rewarding to know that I can do this running thing. I never thought I'd get to where I am physically. I have to make a decision to sign up for more personal training sessions by thursday....what to do? what to do?
