Less Than A Month To Go!

Well it's less than a month til I shove off to the Biggest Loser's Fitness Ridge in Ivins, Utah. No, I'm not going to be on TV and no Jillian Michels won't be training me, but I'm pumped. I guess since I signed up in December I have experienced every emotion there is. But right now, in the midst of training for this intense month I will spend out there, I am really pumped. I have found people online who have gone before me and lived to tell the tale. They have been wonderful to give me juicy little tidbits that will help me get through my month long stay.

I will be given 1,200 calories a day and workout for 9 hours every day but Sunday. Thank goodness for a day of rest! Hmmmm...wonder how it will be coming home and waiting for my food. Don't see it happen. Isaac is concerned that while I'm gone he will only get corndogs and PB&J sandwiches.

It is amazing to me that Fitness Ridge will hold 70 people each week and May 22nd was the first date they had available back in December when I signed up! Also the price has gone up $800 per month since December. That's rough. I better make this one count cause I don't think this girl's goin back!!

I will miss my family terribly. I have never been apart from them for more than a week. That said, I will also miss Steve's birthday, our anniversary, and my birthday. There is a redeeming event planned for my return though. My wonderful husband is going to invite all my friends and have a birthday reveal party for me.

I hope you enjoy the blogs I post on here. I hope this blog in some small way inspires you. Maybe weight isn't what you battle with. Maybe it's substance abuse, emotional issues, or pornography. Whatever it is, it's killing you. Maybe today will be the day you say, "You know what? I can make a change. I can do this." It takes guts, willpower, and kissing fear goodbye. But I know you have it in you. Dig deep and find that person. And if you want to check out the website of where I'm going to be tortured for the next month go to
