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.

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 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 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.

It’s been a long time…

Yes I know it has been awhile since I have updated. The usual lack of motivation excuses are not really part of it this time, and more of they family things to do and Christmas travel/holiday things have been kind of in the way. Regardless I figured while I had a spare 30 minutes I should at least update some of my progress or lack thereof.

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.
