Who watch Biggest Loser?

I loved last nights Biggest Loser ... the black team ... the renagades ... they rocked the show. The people on the show in addition to all the talk in the D-I-E-T group this morning made me want to pull out my BL videos.

The Biggest Loser Workout, Vol. 1

I was pissed at first cause I couldn't get my living room DVD player to work. Kept telling me there was a disc error. Every disc I put in was an error. We paid so much damn money for the thing & then it wants to give me an error. I could have taken it to my bedroom but DH was in the room snoozing. He had to go to the field yesterday & stay over night. He could have slept but he had piss poor planning which required him & him alone to man the radios ever hour. Dumb Ass! Well, I went to get my workout clothes & noticed DH was up ... I did my workout in my bedroom. I was all fired up ... more than usual cause DH & I got into a little disagreement over this field problem. He almost didn't make it home this morning cause he was falling asleep at the wheel. His piss poor planning is what caused it. See I asked him who was gonna take over tonights duty since he wasn't ... he said another soldier. I inquired as to why him & this other guy couldn't have split the night & he comes back yelling at me cause the guy had to be up first thing this morning to teach a class. Uh hello ... one don't fluckin yell at me cause I don't need your shit ... two ... if he has to teach a class this morning then that means he's a teacher who will have to teach tomorrow morning too. So I said as much ... he yells at me again saying that it's his fault cause he's a piss poor planner. Gee ... I didn't even have to tell him this. I walked out cause I don't do well with yelling & fighting. I hear him yell at me ... sure walk away ... you always do. All I could do was go outside & let the steam flow out of me. I wanted to say ya know what buddy .... don't come home after a night with no sleep & bitch at me. It's your damn fault you didn't get any sleep not mine.

Oh well, saying it would just cause an argument ... more stress that I just don't need or want.

I'm slightly lower in the calories department then I should be for 2 days in a row. I don't know what's wrong with me, I just can't seem to get my mind wrapped around food. I know I have to eat to lose but food is the last thing on my brain.

Well, my birthday is less than a week away & I doubt I will make it out of the 190's by then. Oh well ... I can shoot for my goal weight for my 26th birthday. <-- Whoopsie, mayjor type, thanks Michele for bringing this to my attention. I wish I was gonna be 26 but sadly ... I'll be 35. It's better than going to my grave as heavy as I am now right?!

That's all for me ... gonna og chug some water & shower my sweaty butt. Oh ... I ordered a book today;

Winning by Losing: Drop the Weight, Change Your LifeFrom Publishers Weekly
Fitness guru Michaels, a fitness and life coach who has appeared on NBC's The Biggest Loser, brings her tough-love style to the pages of her first offering. For those familiar with Loser, Michael's no-excuses approach here may seem less intimidating than it does to those meeting her on television. She writes with an edge, warning readers that they cannot make excuses, they will work hard and they will suffer setbacks, but they will also change their lives for the better. Her "3-S" (Self, Science and Sweat) plan covers the mental and physical, and Michaels dedicates equal sections of the book to each. In Self, she announces to readers that she was an "overweight and unhappy teenager" who took charge of her life, challenging readers to do the same. While no book has the power to change a person, the tips Michaels provides-create a support system, keep a journal, change your self-talk-do. In Science, Michaels dispels common diet myths (skipping meals is best, diet pills work), provides recipes for meals and snacks and introduces the concept of fast-, slow- and balanced-oxidizers, which determines a person's ideal diet. The final Sweat chapters include easy-to-follow exercises accompanied by photos, and a five-day-per-week, 12-week fitness program centered on burn-and-tone cardio training. The book and coaching come relatively cheap, but to follow the program without substitution exercises, readers will need access to a gym or a weight machine. And, unfortunately, Michaels does not make house calls.
