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.

Back In The Saddle Again – Week 4, Day 1(First Return Week)

I was on the road fairly early around 9 and had not eaten so I grabbed some coffee and a lowfat chicken sausage wrap from Starbucks. Getting out of town was a priority, but I went so fast I left the card game I bought to bring back to the resort! ARGH! Anyway, the trip was fairly uneventful. I stopped to eat at a Panera and chicken noodle soup and half a flatbread thai wrap. It was 470 calories total and very filling.

At Home Day 6 – Different Screaming Belt + Loop

IMG_7637So the good news is today I fit back into my original screaming belt loop belt. The one that is up at the top of the webpage there… It is still screaming because of my up and downs, but I am glad to be back to it. I think when I get to the last loop on this belt I am going to frame it and put it above my refrigerator to remind me to always keep my lifestyle in check. I am glad to be able to keep my pants from falling off now, but I hope I get down to the next belt loop soon. I think that is a goal for me while I am at the resort the next two weeks. One more belt loop!

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 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.

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.

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)
