My Knees are killing me! Why am I smiling?

Heck of a good week so far! Eating well, feeling strong. Knees not too happy though. I told one of my trainers today that squatting while holding a weighted bar is not making me knees happy and I said we won't be doing that again until I drop another fourty pounds. Actually, I asked him nicely, it is not a good practice to try and boss your trainers around. Complaining is not too smart either, they seem to to pile it on if you whine. Luckily, when I get in the zone I don't whine too much. They do listen to your constructive comments though and genuinely want you to make progress but not get injured.

Tomorrow I get another free massage, Working Well and Wellquest rocks!

In light of my new policy of full disclosure here is my report from last week:

I got in 390 minutes of cardio last week and 120 minutes of weight training.

That’s the good news, the bad news is that I went over my max calories three days last week. I recorded the facts and sent my food log to Steve, I expect that the beatings will commence soon.

I also only lost a half a pound last week which gives substance to my theory that you can never get enough exercise to allow you to eat what you want.

Still Going Strong

Week six is ending on a high note. Our team works out together on Saturdays, I love it when we get together. I have been reading the other team's blogs, very inspirational! I do laught hysterically every time I read where someone doesn't want to share how well they are doing because other teams will find out. Trust me, you won't lose any faster if I know how you're doing. In fact, I hope everyone rocks this challenge! Working Well has given 24 people the opportunity of a lifetime here so we are all winners here.

Watching the Biggest Loser is more fun when you're losing than when you're gaining!

Love to watch the Loser. Lots of folks as fat as me or fatter trying to find the answers. Every once in awhile one of the contestants will look straight into the camera and say something about never going back, never regaining the weight. I can see the doubt, we all have it. Will we be able to maintain a healthy lifestyle? Will we keep up the exercise? People who have won the whole challenge, $250,000 and shown off their new bodies in front of millions have gained it back. 5% keep it off, frikin 5%. How will I make sure I am one of the 5%? Got to change inside and out,that's how. I can do that.
