My Biggest Loser Moment

Time to blow the dust off my blog. It sure has been a while. Some happenings? I recently watched 2 friends commit to each other for the rest of their lives. Wow. And I mean that in a "Oh Sweet Baby Jesus I feel the noose tightening around my neck someone open a window it's HOT in here!!!" sort of way. Not that I have commitment issues or anything. But the idea just seems so....permanent. Which I suppose is the point. But, they were both beautiful, the wedding was beautiful, and I had a great time.

Move on to the next weekend. Lean Turkey Challenge! And the winners was... (drum roll please)... mine! Great job Wild Turkeys. It was a lot of fun. Now, I'm a competitive person but I'm also a high stress person so I have to now look back on myself and laugh. I stayed in Friday night to get my rest. Um, why were my teammates posting on Facebook that they were out downtown? Get to bed!!! I had my stuff laid out to wear, bag packed, and alarm set for early am. Early am as way earlier than necessary. I was in bed by around 9pm with visions of double unders dancing in my head.

The next morning I had my breakfast, water, and coffee and proceeded to make several bathroom runs to coax every ounce of liquid back out of my body. Honestly, you'd have thought I was preparing for the games by how anxious I was. Fast forward to getting to the gym and learning that one of my teammates was filling in for another team low in numbers. Last minute game change??? Argh!!!

And then it was ok. This was the best way I could've spent my Saturday morning. Definately going to do it again last year. My final body comp was interesting though. It was a Biggest Loser moment. Imagine the contestant getting on the scale to discover that they've gained weight. Shocker!! Well, I gained 3 pounds. But here's the kicker. I lost bodyfat. What does that mean? I gained muscle. My clothes are not any looser BUT I have been feeling a little stronger. So, there ya go. That, in itself, is an accomplishment.
