my work is doing a biggest loser challenge.
i guess they do it every year, but seeing as i've only been there for a month, it is new to me. they offer some AWESOME cash prizes, along with surprises along the way that i am unaware of what they may be.
well weigh in was today, so i gorged. on everything i could get my hands on. tried filling myself to the brim. when i woke up this morning and discovered that my TOM had started, i was excited. extra water weight and bloating equals more lbs on the scale. i think it was the first time that i was actually excited to get that monthly reminder that yes, i am a woman with a body that is capable of producing another human being. joyful joyful....
i had been emailing the "head of operations" (who is the one that puts all this biggest loser stuff together) about the event, probably driving the poor man insane, and when i walked into the company gym, the head of HR said "hi Courtney" and Mike, the "head of ops" (who was running away on an elliptical with the sweat pouring from his body) said, "Are you Courtney M" I said "yes sir" and he said "so finally putting a face with a name, im mike" and i said "ohhhh, so i hear your a big trash talker, well, bring it." with a huge grin on his face i turned, weighed myself secretly and left the gym. made me feel good that he was watching for me to show up, knows i am SO ready for the competition, and that i will be a big competitor. :)
tomorrow morning i am having a guy that i am dating call me at 6 am to wake my happy butt up so i can do a morning work out, hit the shower, and get ready for my day, along with bringing spare gym clothes and shoes so i can go walk on the treadmill at lunch and put in a workout after work. it will be good. i am SOOOO MOTIVATED!!!
