The Biggest Loser
Friday, January 09, 2015
I confess I have deep mistrust of the show Biggest Loser. And yet, season after season, I eventually come around to watching it.
So, here I am, starting season 16. I am unsure of these new trainers. I mean, come on! Jessie is a smoker! How can he be an example of healthy lifestyles?! And he has carefully crafted his image to be a marketable TV personality. I don't like him.
But, Jen! Well. I have a new hero. I looked her up. Her stats? Mine. She's my height AND my weight. That is what 150 lbs of muscle can look like. I'm not under any illusions that I can actually look like that. I'm not built the same way and I don't have a life that lets me train like I would need to in order to look like that. But, it's an inspiration. I don't need to lose weight. I need to gain some muscle.
I'm working on that. I'm lifting weights again. Every day this week. I'm not lifting heavy, because I don't have heavy weights, but I'm using what I have and building my strength back up.
I've kind of laid out my year plan. Loosely. I'm not training for any races for Jan or Feb. These months will be focusing on ST and getting my over all fitness back. I will run a couple races in April and May, so in March I will start training for those. I'm debating for a full or half marathon in May. I need to figure that out still.
Alrighty. Strength. Running. Strength. And running. And strength.
