Day 12: Biggest Loser Resort Niagara

IMG_7259Today was the day that my family arrived into town and I could not wait to see them. I checked in with them between every class to see when they were going to arrive. They turned out to not make it in until around 5pm, and that was perfect. I had them come down here so I could show them around, but I only got to introduce them to a few guests. My son and daughter were enthralled by the boats and the fishing poles. I think they want to come back just for that as a vacation!

Day 9: Biggest Loser Resort Niagara

IMG_6597It was a thoroughly exhausting day today, but I feel pretty good all things considered. I have found myself bonding more with some of the guests and getting to know the trainers a bit more which is helping my overall mood. My first week I was pretty shut off from other people and now I find myself opening up more and laughing at meal time with some of my new friends.

Day 8: Biggest Loser Resort Niagara

IMG_7044 Monday all over again, and all I can think about is surviving until the end of the day. I was a little excited about the assessment hike once again to see if I could notice any difference over the weekend. I think I have done some improving on my stamina, but my speed is about the same. It was good to go through it again with a new group of people, but there are far fewer new people this week. The total group size is down about 10 and the stay over guests far outnumber the newbies. It is actually not such a bad thing considering the people here are great and today I really got to have a great time. My group for breakfast, lunch and dinner kept me laughing so much today that I felt like I had a third core workout.

Days 6 and 7: Biggest Loser Resort Niagara

IMG_7209At this resort y0u are encouraged to weigh in every weekend to see your results and fix what you need to. I weighed in on Saturday morning and got the pleasant surprise of losing 12.4 pounds (19.10 body fat lost, 6.7 muscle gained) and 3.5% body fat. I have to say I was pretty excited and hope I can continue the downward trend aggressively my second and third weeks.

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.

Breaking the fast and my stomach!

Well the last two days have been great as far as getting to chew food consistently once again. I never really knew how bad I missed it till I was able to masticate once again. I find it hard to believe that I have stil manage to lose a little over 1lb in these two days where I have reverted to solid food. I weighed in at 313.8 this morning, and I was 315 when my fast ended. To say that I am happy to still see the scale moving down would be an understatement. It is giving me confidence going into my vacation that I can maintain and maybe even add to my total weight loss. I am 39lbs down and getting ever so close to being out of the 300s once again (this time for good.) (Click Continue Reading for more)

I am down to 315 and that was my goal for the first juice fast so I am pretty pumped. I still have today (Saturday) till Tuesday morning when I break my fast, so 4 more days!!! I have had some ups and downs with the fast over these days I am sad to report.(Click continue reading for more)

Days 28 and 29 – Plodding along till the end

Well I always seem to start off with my weigh in of the morning and today was a little underwhelming but expected after so many good days in a row. I am posting, as usual, on the morning after the days I am posting about. As of the morning of day 30 I am at 318 which is a pound up from yesterday. My overall weight loss is now 34.8 pounds which is what I am focusing on because it is amazing in just 30 days. (Click Continue Reading for more.)
