The Biggest Loser and Other Updates

I am two weeks behind on BL updates. Let's just be quick about this. The black team is not doing so well and they have sent home Dina and Abby.

For the record, I think Daniel should have gone home, as much as I like him and hope he gets to his weight loss goal, he isn't dropping any lbs. and he isn't really doing anything. Why send home Abby? She looks great now, but I feel like she could have benefited much more by staying at the ranch.

Was anybody else annoyed that the info on the last episode was titled "Derek Jeter talks to the contestants" and Jeter was only on a big screen for like two minutes. I mean really, if you are going to advertise him, at least give him a bit more face time. I have been staring at these sweaty, double-chinned faces for weeks now, how about a little bit of pretty once in a while?

We got the DVR yesterday, so now I can watch both BL and SYTYCD and not have to choose, hopefully this will enable me to post quicker on the BL this week. Since there is no World Series game tonight (the Yanks blew it last night--good job pitching AJ!), I will be able to watch the BL live. Look for updates tomorrow.

Other Updates: I ran two days last week. I have to be more consistent if I want to try to run the Turkey Trot. I only have 24 days, but I think I can do it. I tried on the bridesmaid dress I have to wear in January, and much to my chagrin--it fit. I was hoping it would be a little bit more loose. Granted, my boobs are ginormous, but a bit more wiggle room would have been ideal. I am hoping that by December it will have to be taken in a lot more. The food journal went by the wayside this weekend. Why are mini snickers so delicious? Why?


  1. Great job on the running Bean... it's always hardest to get out there, but I know it becomes easier over time and actually enjoyable. The torture of getting started never seems to go away though :(

    Read Born to Run... it will give you some inspiration... or at least it did me and my "exercise" is currently confined to walking to the refrigerator down the hall.

  2. Heather, thanks for the advice. I am thinking about you guys! Loving your blog!!!
