I've always admired the people on the Biggest Loser. Watching them go from morbidly obese to fit, is very inspiring.
Last season I especially identified with a contestant by the name of Sunshine Hampton.
Her shy demeanor, and her little girl spirit at the beginning of the season totally transformed into a powerhouse later on.
I was awakened when I saw her, and found myself rooting for her every episode. I also was vicariously rooting for myself through her success.
As I posted a few posts back, I bought P90X and Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred and Shred it with Weights dvd's from Amazon
I also got Bob Harper's Inside Out Method dvd's.
Needless to say, I got the two baddest fitness trainers at my disposal, and they're in my home everyday.
I've done Jillian's 30 Day Shred level 1 but, boy, is it hard. SERIOUSLY!!!! I've only gotten through maybe 10 minuties of it. It's no joke. Being as sedentary as I am, it's expected for me to have difficulty with someone as tough as Jillian, BUT, I'm committed.
Bob on the other hand, I might have to go through a few months with Jillian to handle Bob. His Cardio and Strength training dvd's got me huffing and puffing just by watching it. I was feeling their pain and I think I may have even broke out into a sweat alittle. Lol just joking.
But man after watching it really makes you wanna get off your butt and kick some ass right along with them.
Of course losing weight is difficult. It's the most difficult thing to do. And the bigger you are the harder it is to lose the weight. Last night I went to the drug store to buy a few things and bought an analog scale that was on sale. I got home and decised to finally weight myself. (I haven't weighed myself in 6 months). The finally number both startled and woke me up. I am 260lbs.
The last time I weighed myself was back in early august, I had just joined the gym. The trainer annoused my weight as 250. How did I gain 10 lbs in 6 months. Imagine if I didn't buy that scale or the dvd's. Imagine if I assumed that my weight was going to stay at 250 and that I had all the time in the world to lose the weight. Image if I continued to balloon the way I am, and remained in denial???? I'm 40 lbs away from 300lbs. The mere thought of it brings me to tears. I can't be 300 lbs. I JUST CAN'T!!!!!
I also bought Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. I dont know which I'm more scared to put into my dvd player.
I want to loose some weight before I attemp P90x so I have until march to drop about 30 lbs before my body can handle P90x.
I made two videos talking about why I bought P90x and another of me watching the introduction with my brother (we both were so scared, lol), but the video didn't turn out nice. I may upload it some other time, but I want to make a whole new video.
I'm waiting on a few other dvd's that i've ordered from Amazon to come it. So far I think I've got the right tools.
It's 9.am here where I'm at, and it's a beautiful morning. Kinda chilly, yet warm enough to not have to wear a jacket. But enough about the weather.
Im taking the morning and afternoon off from work to hang out. Yes I called in sick. I'll go to my second job later in the evening. It's really hard sometimes working two jobs, but I need the money and the economy we live in now, sometimes it feels like working two jobs still gets you a paycheck of working one job. It hurts, but I always gotta remember why I'm working so hard. So yea, I deserve an extra day off.
I know I said I will be back with videos, and I didnt forget. In fact, I'm thinking of making this blog a video blog meaning I'll just post videos of what I have to say rather than having to type it up all the time. And quite frankly I tend to ramble on and on when I'm typing instead of getting straight to the point.
It's been so long.
Please forgive me. I've been gone for a minute, but now I'm back. Did you miss me?
I've missed you. It sucks when your laptop crashes, and all your pics and videos go down with it.
But now, I have a new laptop and I'm ready to get things back to where they are to be.
I'll be back later, to share some video that i made a few days ago.
