The Biggest Loser was on - and much as I like to think that I've licked my weight issues (do we ever?) I yo-yo just like the rest of the world and thus have some guilt going on when I have a snacking day... (we're calling it a snacking day because the word "binge" is really negative!) Yesterday was dedicated to healthful foods mostly because I didn't have time for snacks... this was good because as soon as I sat down to watch The Biggest Loser I had guilt for other reasons...
You see, the bow-flex is less than 12 feet from the TV... but there's a very comfortable couch between them... but seeing all of these determined individuals working out like their lives depended on it (and I guess they do) made me think I could maybe do a bit more than my 2 mile walk to the school in the mornings. So I did - and yes my arms are a tad sore... pushing that stroller up the hill this morning put me over the edge!
So, I have to wonder - this show... is it inspiring (guilt inducing) for everyone? I am not a skinny stick myself but they wouldn't take me on the show... yet I watch it religiously. Some of my size 2 friends watch the show and enjoy it immensely... so what is it that makes it so enjoyable? I personally wish they could all stay on campus... I wish I could hang out on campus for a few days and get some good training pointers with them! The show obviously isn't just for the highly overweight people of the world!
Since it does work so well and gets me working out... maybe they need a show about homemaker moms that blog more than they clean - competing to have a spic and span house with folded clean laundry (mine is usually clean, never folded). THAT is the kind of inspiration I desperately need - but would anyone watch it!?
You'll be happy to know that the inspirational thrill was over before long - then I spent the next hour flipping back and forth trying to follow the story line on SVU and Without A Trace! (and no I don't normally do that, but an old college classmate was on Without A Trace, and I love to watch him act... until he moves to Wisteria Lane at least... then he's on his own!)
