Day 18: Biggest Loser Resort Niagara

IMG_7584The main thing on my mind today was the rest of my stays at the resort and getting organized for my week at home coming up. I spoke with my wife and found out that my last set of two weeks in October were now going to have to go down to just a one week stay because of a complication of her work schedule. At first I was kind of stressed since I had just decided that I liked the spacing of the weeks. The good news is I had scheduled a life coaching session with Teresa to help me get organized and she help me plan out the rest to my weeks with little changes.

Day 17: Biggest Loser Resort Niagara

IMG_7573Kind of an odd day today as I woke up with a pain on top of my knee, and had no idea what it was. At first I thought it was where I had crawled around on pavement, but on closer examination there was a white head in the center of my knee and the pain was surrounding it by about 4 inches and was slightly red. As I talked to one of my friends here at breakfast he found a similar thing the same morning on his ankle and was told it was a bug (spider) bite. I hate spiders…. It figures I would get a bite while I was here, and it really does give me some shooting pain from time to time, but it is not as bad as my friend’s bite on his ankle. He is going into town to get a doctor to look at it, and unfortunately will be missing classes.

Day 5: Biggest Loser Resort Niagara

IMG_7152The day once again started off with me snoozing through stretch, but the extra sleep has been good for me.  Coming to the resort I have had some problems with snoring and waking up on and off, but all the working out here has made me sleep like the dead.  I woke up feeling pretty invigorated considering all the work I had put in throughout the week.  The best part of the day for me was knowing I was going on an offsite hike.  The offsite hike was at Letchworth State Park, and it was far better than I expected.

Day 4: Biggest Loser Resort Niagara

Along the hiking trailIt looks like I am going to be using my stretch time each morning to sleep.  I am still catching up on these blog posts and not waking up early like I should to keep it all fresh in my mind.  I will be completely caught up this weekend though.  Thursday my energy was up and I was definitely ready to go in the morning.  There was a good lecture on goal setting that changed the way I looked at some of my own goals.  Having our trainer explain that it is better to set weekly total minute goals for gym activities rather than number of days in the gym.  If you set up  total minutes you can always catch up at the end of the week by working out more and accomplish your goal.   If you had said you were going to go 5 days a week for at least 45 minutes and you were sick 3 days you have not left yourself much wiggle room since there are only so many days of the week.  I think that little tidbit will help me.

Day 11 at the Biggest Loser Resort in Utah.

This was probably one of my best days here in Utah for several reasons.  The first one was that I made it all the way to the top and back down to the bottom of stop sign which is about 8 miles (4 mostly up!)  I really pushed myself and felt very rewarded afterwards.  The other great part to my day was having a meeting with the life coach here at Utah (Jen) and getting some real work done toward the emotional side of my eating back home.

Day 10 at the Biggest Loser Resort in Utah.

Another Tuesday down, and just one more to go.  It was a good but very challenging day for me.  I hit a wall today in my second workout session and it was hard just to survive the class.  After the initial rush of feeling better on Monday I kind of crashed today.  The good news is I survived, but I wish I could have given it a little more in my classes.

Day 9 at the Biggest Loser Resort in Utah.

It is nice to finally be blogging about days as I have done them.  Today was assessment hike day where we are loaded up and show the hiking guides our relative speed/comfort on hikes.  It is a good process and gets you into a van with relatively  speedy hikers.  It is great to have groups that are tighter together and finish at about the same time and they do a pretty good job of getting us put in the correct vans after this day.

Day 8 at the Biggest Loser Resort in Utah.

A day of rest is just what I needed!  It was a good day and started off with a little extra sleep and a breakfast with some new friends. Shortly after breakfast Sean, Kim and I went to see Arthur Christmas at the movie theater and I really enjoyed it.
