Happy Friday – fitting in my workouts and the Biggest Loser
|January 11, 2013||Posted by Carrie under balance, Best Body Bootcamp, Biggest Loser, Fitness Friday|
Fridays hold a new meaning to me… it’s the first day of my weekend! My mornings get to start differently with more coffee/computer time. That means more time here, less rushing to get out of the house early, a morning of volunteering at my son’s school and a jam packed day of errands.
A few notes from the week – I got in a workout every day this week! Tuesday I went for a walk on my lunch hour. Seriously, look at the view from my walk. Who wouldn’t be motivated to enjoy this scenery?
If you look back on the pictures I usually take from my beach runs, this is the view looking back that direction.
lots of people stopping to enjoy the view
Monday and Wednesday nights, I got in my strength workout for Best Body Bootcamp. Monday’s workout included cardio intervals which I got done on my stationary bike. On Wednesday I also went for a run/walk while at Dude’s basketball practice. Last night I hit up the bike for a 25 minute ride.
I’ve been able to make super healthy food choices so far this week too. Packing my lunch and food for the day is the key.
I’m so happy that Biggest Loser started! I’m loving this season already. I love the kids. So far I think they’re doing a wonderful job incorporating the kids in a positive way. And the kids themselves – have you ever seen such amazingly well-spoken and poised kids? They did a great job choosing kids who have the potential to inspire a nation.
One of most motivating parts of the Biggest Loser season is the contestants meet with Dr. H. It’s so eye opening to see what an unhealthy lifestyle can do to your body.
Dr. H’s question to the one contestant of “if you had Lymphoma, would you take 2 hours out of your day for chemotherapy?” Of course he said yes. Then Dr. H followed up with the statement that the affects of his weight were like those of cancer. And he had the power to change it.
The other statement that stuck with me was when he told the one female contestant that her diabetes was so out of control that medication would probably not help.
I love the moments on the show when the contestants realize that they can do a hard workout. That they can push themselves past what they thought they could do. That smile is priceless. That smile is why I workout . I love that smile.
When was the last time you had that smile on your face for doing something you didn’t think was possible?
