$280. Two hundred eighty dollars!
If that's not motivation (along with my too-tight-fatty pants) then I don't quite know what else will light a fire under my lardy butt.
Not to toot my own horn but, my track record for winning these things is 2 for 2. I won the boot camp a few years back and I won the biggest loser at my old school two years ago. Apparently, I work well under pressure. Maintaining the victory is quite a different story, however.
I've started a few things to try and kick things into high gear. For starters, and this may be cataloged as tmi, a friend recommended a detox kit to flush out all the toxins in my body (ie: Star Pizza, Beavers, frozen lunches).
the kit is $16 at whole foods & while a bit skeptical, I am willing to give those hippie grocers a chance
Inside the box are these bottles. I am to take a handful of each for two weeks, morning and night. The requirements are to drink plenty of water and non-processed foods.Sounds relatively harmful...no?
In order to prepare I turned to my trusty pinterest boards and put together a list to help start off this week's menu:
breakfast, lunch & dinner: planned.
Day one's dinner consisted of corn chowder. According to the website, each cup is 200 calories. And...I'm not going to lie. I had three ladles-worth of soup. It was amazingly good. If you choose to recreate it, be warned. It took an hour to make- the ten minute simmer intervals added up. But it was the perfect meal for a rainy day.
Other than planning out the menu, I have a plan for exercise. All courtesy of my new Wii & Zumba game! I would talk more about my new-found gamer persona but it's worthy of a solo entry. So, be prepared.
Wish me luck, Biggest Loser ends in mid-April. Any advice, suggestions, encouragement will be welcome. Merci!
