Biggest Loser

Even though the Biggest Loser WAS on tonight... it doesn't have anything to do with my post tonight. (Except for me to say that I think Arthur is STUPID).

Nope... my blog title is referring to a challenge that we are having at work. It started about a week ago, but I just got on board Monday because of the whole strep/flu thing. Our at-work Biggest Loser challenge will go until Spring Break (March 11, I think) and there will be TWO winners. One person with the most pounds lost, and one person with the largest percentage of weight loss. So far, I think there is about 17 people signed up, and we all put in $10.

Let me just say... I'm excited! Two days in, and I have had two PERFECT days. I have journaled my food, stayed within my calories, and made good choices. Accountability at work is going to be a BIG motivator for me. I know that people are watching... and I really wanna win!

And guess what else? One of my co-workers and I are going to be workout buddies. We went to work out today, and I did a total of 50 minutes: 26 on the elliptical, 14 on the bike, and then we walked for 20 - 25 minutes.

I will admit, if I had been by myself, I would have only did the 30 minutes on the elliptical. I forgot my IPOD, which is a gym tragedy for me. So I bought some cheap headphones and plugged in to watch TV until my friend got there. We got on the bike together and then went to walk on the track. It was fun to have a buddy!

I am wiped out and ready for bed. Tomorrow we are supposed to get snow again. I will be SO HAPPY when Spring is here.
