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 11: Biggest Loser Resort Niagara

DuffsI have some good news and some bad news, the good news is I enjoyed my day today immensely and the bad news is… I enjoyed my day immensely!  Why, you may ask, was my day so spectacular?  Well, today I went on an eating expedition with a couple of friends from the resort.  Buffalo is famous for buffalo chicken wings and we had heard that the place to try them was called Duffs.  We hatched this plan at Target the night before and decided that we could only do it if we all went and made sure none of us went too far off the rails and I am not too disappointed to report what happened.

Day 10: Biggest Loser Resort Niagara

IMG_7245A couple of really great things happened today, the first was that my ass did not hurt too much in spin class, and the second was a fun trip to Target. It is amazing that by my third spin class my ass is already getting to be numb enough to focus on the workout and not just enduring the pain. I was so excited by the prospect of enjoying spinning that I bought pants and shoes on amazon. I am not sure how big guy padded spandex bike pants are going to fair in the public eye here, but some may be jealous? If I can get into spinning then I know I have a great workout back home and a class that I can go to.

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.

Days 1 through 3: Biggest Loser Resort Niagara!

View of the Lake (Pond)The first three days have flown by here at the resort. Just like my last trip to Utah I am finding it hard to have time to write and talk to my family here in the beginning. Initially all I want to do when I get back to the room after dinner is call my wife and go to bed at 6:30-7:30. Just getting back in the routine and changing between classes leaves very little time to write or even think. I am pretty much back in the swing of things again, so I will be pushing onward with the blog entries.

From Scratch! A New Beginning At A Near Record High.

The BeginningI am currently back at the Biggest Loser Resort, but this time it is the one in Niagara (actually Java Center, NY 1 hour drive from the falls.) I decided to do a pre-day 1 post (though I am finally putting it into the computer on day 4 here) to do a little catch up work with me. I feel that once I do a little catch up it will be easier for me to focus on information and experiences about the resort, so please bear with me.
