I gave up on the show last season. I just couldn't get in to the group and the trainer changes. ( no Jillian) I didn't watch the current season. Actually, I wasn't sure when the last season ended and the new one began. Until today--I had a great morning, was inspired, had about a 90 minute pool workout. Hit Kmart for some savings on cleaning supplies and other items, but then dipped in to a bag of something on the way home from the store. Sigh. Two steps forward , one step back. ( Same thing happened last night-great day, screwed up at the end.)\
Then I got back on track. Spiniach salad, tuna, pineapple, and greek yogurt while I was going through the cable On Demand menu. I saw a boatload of Biggest loser episodes. So I started watching. I think I started at like week 4, and kept watching about 4 episodes. Between and during those episodes, I exercised a little, cleaned the kitchen a little, ate a healthy snack, cooked a healthy breakfast quiche and roasted some veggies. I went to the Nbc Bl website and caught up on who these people are and their starting weights. I'm not sure I'm entirely back on the BL band wagon, but I admit it--I was motivated. The BL had inspired me from the beginning of my weight loss/ healthy journey. I have a soft spot for Bob. Byt , It has it's faults and I've had my complaints. I think I'll start watching episodes On Demand while I workout on my elliptical (which had collected a little dust, I'll admit.)
Woo hoos-I had lapsed in the checking of my blood sugars. Since losing over 100 lbs my Diabetes is in good control. HGb a 1 c is at 5.6 even with the last little bit of weight gain and I'm down from 2 to 1 Diabetes med. I recalibrated the monitor and checked the controls and WOWZA--my blood sugars are better than ever. Fasting bloog sugars in the low 90's and random blood sugars in the 80's. Even last year when I was at my lowest weight, I didn't have those numbers. I guess I'm doing enough right.
Though not perfectly. I have a check up with my doc coming up soon and will get my cholesterol levels/ hgb a 1 c done.
