Greatest Loser

I love the show The Biggest Loser. I am drawn in by the participants and their struggles to get in shape. I am inspired by their progress and often think that if they can do it then so can I. I think it would be great to work with the trainers and get pushed into fitness.
So when the Y started their own "Greatest Loser" program for the staff I jumped on board.
I get a fun t-shirt, a personal trainer for two hours a week, a team to work out with and I hear there are prizes along the way. So for the next six weeks you will find me every Tuesday and Thursday 6am at the Y. Lucky for you the Y does not allow cameras...today was not pretty.
I got to meet my fun trainer Stephanie and my team. We are team yellow. Before we start working out one of my team members tells a story of throwing up after her session with Stephanie. I am thinking..what did I get myself into? It is now official: I have really no upper body strength at all. Hooray for room for improvement! I am still standing and actually looking forward to Thursday. I want to win this thing : )

I watched the biggest loser last night for the first time... It was really good, but I hope your trainer is not as scary as the woman on the show... she's totally insane! Good luck! :-)

You can do it, Cath!! I am so rooting for you. I'm sure before you know it you will be doing like 50 pushups.

What a great opportunity... trainers and people to work out with. Neat-o. Your posts always make me miss you. I would love to be in the gym with you! And finally, that hamster picture made me chuckle... very cute.
