Well, I survived day one. I have 100% NEVER experienced anything like what I did today. I played sports all of my life, and I don't think I was pushed as hard as I was today. After breakfast was the famous "stop sign hike". You do this every Monday and Saturday and are timed each time going up. It is 4.5 miles one way....and by the end of the hike, you are 1000 feet in elevation higher then when you started. Yep....1000 feet higher. I went into the hike thinking there was no way I would finish...but I DID...yay!
All day was just various classes that we did (kickboxing, circuit, and pool to name a few). Because it is my first week, I have to sit through lectures everyday, which are very interesting and useful.
There are two former BL contestants here right now: Erik Chopin (who won his season, not sure which one though) and Seth Word, which was a finalist on season 2. It has been neat to see them and hear tidbits of their experience while being on the Biggest Loser Show.
The food is good. We eat 1200 calories per day. I haven't been hungry once, and have liked everything that has been served. Below is a few of the meals we have been served:
I feel like there is so much to say, but I need to get to bed. I have a class at 6:00 am called Hardcore....sigh...
Thank to all of you who are praying for me. I need it a lot!
