Check – In Day

Here I am, writing from Malibu, California at the Biggest Loser Resort.  This is actually the second time I wrote this post so I’m feeling a little frustrated. Somehow I erased my post…. I think.  Maybe it’s already posted somewhere.  Who knows.   Me and blogs just don’t seem to get along.

By the time I left for the airport this morning all I felt was relief.  Planning for a trip like this is a pretty big ordeal.  On top of that, I’m probably the worst packer in the entire world.  My packing philosophy is “Just keep sticking stuff in the suitcase until you can’t fit any more.”  So that’s what I did.  If I forgot anything this week it isn’t for lack of trying on my part!

I got here at about 2:00 this afternoon.  They showed me to cabin #60, my cozy home away from home for the week.  I unpacked and then went for my fitness evaluation – a depressing event where I was weighed, measured and they told me my body fat percentage.  I will not be disclosing those numbers, but suffice it to say I was mortified  and it gave me a whole new enthusiasm for working really hard this week!

Dinner tonight was a tamale with black beans and dessert was chocolate pie (made with tofu and a Grape Nut crust)  Everything was really good, but honestly I’m feeling a bit nervous and don’t feel very hungry.  It’s funny, last year I was extremely nervous because I didn’t know what to expect.  This time I’m extremely nervous because I DO know what to expect.  I distinctly remember at the end of the week last year saying I would never, ever do this again.  (I remember saying that after each of my babies was born, too!)  It was really, really hard!  My body felt really beaten and bruised and there were points during the week that I honestly didn’t think I was going to make it.  Miraculously, I did make it! One of the biggest lessons I learned during the week was that I could do a lot more than I thought I could do. I guess that’s why I’m back this year! I want to have that same sense of accomplishment again.

I’m going to sign off for tonight and take it easy for the rest of the evening – tomorrow the real fun begins!  Bring it!!!

I’ll be posting a daily update, so be sure to check back to hear about what I’ve done!

    Dad is running triathlons. You’re willingly eating tofu and submitting yourself to rigorous workouts. When did you guys get so tough?
