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.

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.

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.

Day 21 at the Biggest Loser Resort in Utah: The finish line… and a new beginning.

Such a mixture of emotions as I did my last hike today.  Both Kim and Sean were not feeling well today so they did not do the hike.  I actually spent my time hiking with Ilene, who has become a good friend in the last few days here.  We hiked all the way up to the stop sign and a little bit of the way out to the overlook.  It was a very easy hike for me at this point.  I barely sweat (which is crazy since I am a sweating machine) and was rarely out of breath.  It is truly amazing how fast your body can become used to hard work.  The feeling you get from getting more physically fit is hard to explain.  I had some tremendous news at my weigh in, I have lost 29.2 pounds in 3 weeks.

Day 20 at the Biggest Loser Resort in Utah.

It feels odd to only have today and tomorrow left here at the resort.  I have wanted to be back home since I got here pretty much, missing my wife and kids.  It has been tough to be out here, but it is definitely worth it this time.  I feel stronger physically, and more important I feel better mentally.

Day 19 at the Biggest Loser Resort in Utah.

It feels surreal that I only have today, tomorrow and Saturday and it is home to my family.  I have missed them ever since I left this time.  I am not sure I am cut out to be away for them more than a few days.  This trip to the resort has been challenging for me in a different way then the two other trips.  This time I came to the resort to try to get my head and feelings in order.  I did not come here to learn how to work out or prove that I can.  I did not come here to learn how to cook, or how or what to eat.  I came here to tackle the things that cause me the most problems, and those are the emotions and the why’s of my eating.

Day 18 at the Biggest Loser Resort in Utah.

The hike we went on today was actually not too difficult, but the rewarding scenery at the end was amazing.  The hike is called Red Mountain and you walk through a windy trail that is covered with loose rocks, and then all sand at the end.  It is not a very difficult trail incline wise but you have to keep watching your feet because of all the rock.  At the end of the trail you get an overlook view of all of West Canyon and it is breathtaking.  I have to say it is the best view I have seen since I have been here and that is really saying something since there are so many beautiful hikes.
