This season, my boyfriend and I got hooked!! I'll give my opinions on the show at the end. First I want to tell you about my new Tuesday night routine (that just started last night....but it WILL be a weekly thing!)
My friend Amanda and I were texting each other last night during The Biggest Loser saying how we still had to workout today but we had to wait for our kids to go to bed and, of course, wait until The Biggest Loser was over but geez, two hours long?? We will be so tired by the time it's over. So I suggested that we challenge each other to workout during the commercials and it turned into a hell of a workout!!! I'm actually really sore today!!!
Every commercial break we came up with a workout that we would do until the show came back on and we would push ourselves as hard as we could during those 4-5 minutes. (Side note: we didn't come up with the idea until we were an hour into the show so next week will be even better!) My boyfriend and his brother, who were watching the show with me, jumped in on the action too!
1st commercial set: as many crunches as you can do (I did 100 crunches and 10 full situps)
2nd commercial set: as many side crunches as you can do or ab variations. (I did 115 different variations)
3rd commercial set: Pushups and planks (I did 10 regular pushups, 15 modified, and I regular planked through 2 whole commercials and side planked one on each side through 2 commercials)
4th commercial set: Squats!! (I did 90 squats with my kettle bell with a lateral raise and then a holding squat at the end. )
5th commercial set: More crunches!! (I did 115 on my stability ball)
6th commercial set: Cardio!! We did one workout for each commercial and when the commercial switched, we switched workouts. So it went run in place, high knees, butt kicks, mountain climbers, start over! That was a good sweat!!!
That added up to be a pretty good workout and that was only an hour of the show! Next week we will be starting at the beginning. The bottom line here is NO EXCUSES!! You can still do what you enjoy while reaching for your goals. We could have easily said "Biggest Loser is on...let's wait until tomorrow to workout" but we didn't. We pushed and we got the job done!
To sum it up:
Dolvett is one fine brotha!
Adrian talks way too much. I'm glad he went home. But I do agree that they didn't give him a chance.
Conda needs her butt kicked. She needs to shut her mouth and stop worrying about what everybody else is doing.
The red team, in general, annoys me - aside from Santa - he's a cool guy.
I like Kim and I agree she should get some of Dolvett's check after how she held her team together last night.
Losing 13lbs in one week is NUTS!!
Losing 6lbs in one week is still so incredible, I wish they would stop boo-hooing over losses like that. It makes me sick.
Next week is going to be full of drama with Conda and Daphne and I can't wait.
