After quitting my job it has been a lot easier to focus on being healthy. Especially considering I worked at the mecca of fried food. Even our all vegetable salad was like 250 calories! YIKES.
I am eating healthy and working out which is awesome but I wanted something more.
I needed a little motivation.
I browsed spark but I was tired so I thought maybe I'll watch something motivational. I have seen the show "I used to be fat" on MTV which is ok, I already watched all the healthy documentaries on Netflix so even though I don't really agree with everything on it I turned on "The Biggest Loser"
I made it about 30 minutes into season 14 episode one and had to turn it off. I couldn't watch it anymore! I have never felt more frustrated in my life. All I could think is STOP STOP STOP YOU'RE GOING TO KILL YOURSELF!
On their first workout they were dropping like flies, passing out everywhere, puking, dry heaving, crying and when they stopped according to Jillian Michaels they were weak and awful and giving up.
I'm sure there are some aspects that are for TV and it's not all awful, but if we keep showing people the puke and the tears how are we going to motivate people. I don't know this may just be rambly and ranty but I just had to put that out there. I was very disappointed.
