I begin Thursday night. The Biggest Loser program at our church. I am excited, nervous, wanting to quit (even though I haven't started as of yet), and so ready to change myself. How can I have all these emotions at the same time? Crazy, I know...
I thought I would chronicle the process. So here it goes...
These are the things that I need to bring to the first meeting:
light weight hand held weights,
work-out apparel (clothes that will let you breath,or any kind that you feel comfortable in (wicking is best)),
bottle of water ,
towel if you sweat (YES I DO!!! Just sitting makes me sweat!)
plan on eating something light (with protein and carbs) one to two hours prior to exercise (4:30 - 5:30 p.m.),
we will be working out the very first night and there after, do bring some small amt. protein ( like almonds) for after workout.
The first night is going to look like this:
Pictures - team pictures (with team shirts on that say Fit 4 Christ) and individual.
Video taping will be done that night as well. (EWWWW!!!)
Devotional - we will be going over the first chapter in the book "What Have You Got to Lose" by Stephen Arterburn
All about measurements- how to take them and will do them on each other
Business- T-shirts pass out, money to be collected (small amount to cover measuring tapes and T-shirts)
Work-out - all contestants in the same room for one hour .
Speaker - who will speak on " Emotional Eating", 1/2 hour.
Here is a link for the daily plate, a website where we can calculate our food intake and exercise.
The books we will be using are: What Have You Got To Lose, by Stephen Arterburn and Maximized Living by Dr. B.J. Hardick, Kimberly Roberto, and Dr. Ben Lerner (This book is somewhat controversial)
(I am a little excited, because even though I haven't started the program yet, I have lost 11 lbs. since my interview. Yea, pneumonia will do that.)
