Well a few weeks ago my hubby got the motivation that he needed to go on his weight loss journey. They began Biggest Loser at his school where he teaches. He is a very competitive type and it really gave him the push. He's lost 7% of his body weight so far in 5 weigh ins. Not bad in my opinion.
At my previous school that I worked at we did Biggest Loser a few times. I got third place the semester before we moved and the move (that I've talked about before) put the weight back on because it was 2 months living with family and what not without our own kitchen.
Anyhow. So my hubby came up with the idea that He and I do our own BL at home. So we are...
Here's how it works. Weigh in days are Wed. Same as his work weigh in. Each week the biggest loser % wise gets $10 spending money and we set $10 aside. The first person to their overall, final goal gets the set aside total that we add to each week. It's like a jackpot on Wheel of Fortune. $10 extra spending money may not seem like much but we hold a tight budget to get out of debt (Dave Ramsey's way) and so $10 is pretty good and the total at the end will be even better. We are keeping the total on the fridge so we can see it a lot for motivation.
I love competition. This will be a lot of fun. I'm still cheering for him. Though I want to beat him! Just think.... If he wins at work and I beat him then I'm really doing good! I am so proud of his success so far and I hope that he wins his BL contest at work!
It's also much more fun to go to the gym together!
Go Brandon I love you very much an I'm so proud of your progress.
So I'll keep y'all updated. Today was week one. He beat me by a lot! His percent was 2.3% and mine was 0.2%. I had a slow week weight wise. He better be ready next week!
I had a great run yesterday! Awesome
400 meter repeats. Times were really great! They were 2:49-2:26-2:47-2:41!
This far surpassed my trainers goal of my 400 meter repeats being 3:26 and under!!!
Today was cross training and strength circuit. I zoomed through my circuit to keep my heart rate up. However I did not let my form suffer. I then headed into the pool and did a circuit between running, running backwards, and kicking only (no upper body) the length of the pool. I did about 11 laps total. I really kicked up my intensity in the water tonight. Kicks only are tough. I kicked harder than ever tonight!!!
Picture below from my circuit tonight.
