It is 6:30am and I just got done doing my Biggest Loser Workout. I sure have missed watching the show while riding my elliptical. Today, I set the alarm for 4:30 and after pressing the snooze button only once, I did it. I got out of bed, threw on my clothes that I had laid out last night, rewound the tape, put in my contacts, hopped on the elliptical and rode for an hour non-stop. It felt so good and I don't think I've done a whole hour since the last season of the Biggest Loser. I won't spoil anything here, since I hate it when I'm reading blogging and find out about the outcome before I've watched it, but it was a good show. I am starting to get a favorite team and I'll just let you know that it's the team that had the biggest loss this week.
An hour on the elliptical is huge. I need to do it more often especially after a day of eating like yesterday. I've been trying to eat mostly core foods, but yesterday I seemed hungry all day and even though I stayed within the core foods, I know I ate too much. Today, I'll be counting my points even though I'll still be sticking to the core foods. My portions just seem to get larger and larger when I do core.
Today's challenge: I have to pick the kids up from school. My wife has a meeting after school and I have already told the kids it's a McDonald's night. I'll be eating at home, but have a hard time staying away from the salty deliciousness of the fries. I know my 2 yr. old won't mind if I have a few, but I can never stop after just one or two or ten!
