Week 4, Day 7 And Week 5, Day 1 – Biggest Loser Resort Niagara

IMG_7717So Saturday I signed up to do the 4 mile run/walk in Arcade, NY despite the forecast of rain and guess what happened? Yeah, it rained an amazing amount on us and it was breezy and cold. It was a pretty miserable four mile walk since I was in shorts and a t-shirt that were both soaked and adding extra weight to my every step. I was lucky that my soaked through shoes did not make any of my blisters worse.

Week 4, Day 6 – Biggest Loser Resort Niagara

IMG_7694I went to stretch for the second day in a row today and I am really enjoying it. The trainer I have had is Mary Beth and it is a very relaxed atmosphere and the stretch also takes away any stress you woke up with. It really helped me out because all of the pool classes from the day before really tired me out and I was very sore.

Week 4, Day 5 – Biggest Loser Resort Niagara

IMG_7691Well I had thought to save most of this for a post on the differences between Niagara and Utah/Malibu but I am a annoyed about it so I will vent now. At both Malibu and Utah there are no other people staying at the resort with you. You are only with guests, staff and trainers, and it is wonderful. You do not have to explain yourself to any other people and better yet other people do not distract the staff from attending to you while you undergo a very stressful and EXPENSIVE life event. In the Niagara resort there are other groups that come and stay and up until this point it has only been a slight annoyance but that has ended.

Week 4, Day 4 – Biggest Loser Resort Niagara

IMG_7690Today was a really good, but really challenging day for me at the resort. I started off waking up at 6AM for no good reason and was really sore from the past two days of working out. I think it is because I have started doing less modifications to my exercises like push ups and it is taking a toll on my muscles while they adjust. It is a good sore, not debilitating, but omnipresent. I really pushed myself hard despite the soreness, and worked out harder than I thought I could.

Week 4, Day 3 – Biggest Loser Resort Niagara

IMG_7668I had the thought that I am going to run out of things to say about the food and workouts pretty soon. I have gone through all of the descriptions of both food and workouts and I have already had all the food from this week in my first week here. I missed the week two menu items. Just a warning from this point on if your are anxiously awaiting new and exciting foods. If I come back during a menu change I will make sure to mention it in this section.

At Home Day 5 – The Only One At the Spinning Class

So today I woke up and after I dropped the children at school I went straight to the gym for BodyPump class. I increased my weight a bit from last time since I was not sore from the first class. I am trying to find a good middle ground and make sure that I get a good workout, but that I do not destroy my workouts for the rest of the week. I know I pushed it hard in class because my shirt was super sweaty by the end.

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 16: Biggest Loser Resort Niagara

IMG_7533There was some good and bad today at the resort for me. On the good side I had a great conversation about planning and ways to move forward with Kelly today. She is one of the trainers here and they are all willing to take some time during just about anything to listen and offer advice. I started off asking her advice on whether I should stick with my current schedule of 3 weeks on, 1 off, 2 on, 1 off and 2 on. I will have a spare week after that since we bought a package of 8 weeks. My wife had mentioned over the weekend that I could change to 5 weeks on, 1 week off and then 3 weeks on to finish off my stay here. Kelly helped me start to break down what I needed to do when I got home and I think I am going to stick with the way things are already.
