Day 24 Fitness Ridge

Teary Tuesday as its sometimes called seemed full of exhausted guest.  I watched a NY girl who came here looking super fit on her cell phone saying "this is really hard".  She is right, this is no walk in the park.  Where do you go and workout 7 to 8 hours a day?  This place is about YOU finding YOU!!!  When you come here, this place caters to YOU and its all about YOU taking care of YOU.  You leave everything behind and focus on you.  So many people come here leaving behind all those people and things that occupy all there "me" time.  It is a place that lets you get reacquainted with YOU.  It is magical.

Being my last Tuesday here I planned on stepping it up a bit more.  After all, when I go home I won't be able to walk 50 feet and be inside a gym.  I started my day with my last Hard Core class with Anna Marie.  This class really is great as it works your middle.  If you come here and spend the money why wouldn't you want to take advantage of the early morning classes?

My hike today was new for me, it was White Rocks.  We start at the Hidden Pinyon location and you walk to the White Rocks and over them.  We walked to the top of Piano Rock again, then a really high peak on another mountain top.  I posted a picture of the narrow walk down that high peaked mountain.  It was breathtaking.  It is liberating to be able to just head up these mountains and have no fear.  That is what 4 weeks have done for me.

After the hike I went in to the gym and worked out on the elliptical, bike and treadmill.  My new friend Teresa said I am an animal.  I just keep thinking about my weigh-in on Friday morning and it keeps me motivated to burn as many calories as I can before Friday morning.

Lunch was tomato soup and a turkey sandwich, it was yummy!  Following lunch I had to attend a departure meeting which basically has you plan your program for staying on track when you go home.  Going to this lecture kept me from taking even a small nap.  I decided not to take a pool class today and instead took an extra cardio class.  In this class I worked out on the stairmaster, bike, treadmill and elliptical.  It might have been after that class that I was called an animal.  Following that class I had Cardio Intervals and I was feeling a bit tired so I did them on the bike, but worked it on the highest level 25.  Following this class I still had my Total Body Conditioning class, it was a long day.  But to make it even longer, Teresa and I went back in the gym and did our ab circuit.  We worked up our hunger for dinner!!

Dinner was an enchilada and chocolate coconut sorbet.  The enchilada was filled with veggies and beans, it was pretty flavorful.  There was a lecture for the new guest following dinner, then The Biggest Loser in the aerobic room.  Even though its my last Tuesday, I once again opted for my room.  I needed to ice my knees and foot and I have an early day tomorrow so my room was the best choice for me.

Oh we have another Biggest Loser Contestant here now, Seth Word, Season 2.  So that makes 4 contestants, also Suzy Preston Hoover, Eric Chopin and Jim Germanako. You never know who your going to be working along side of here at the Biggest Loser Resort at Fitness Ridge!  It's pretty cool!

In conclusion for my last Tuesday here, we discussed having goals, making goals along the way help you to become the person you want to be.  Have reachable attainable goals, they can be small goals, they don't have to be measured in numbers either.  One woman wanted to be able to play with her grand child, another wanted to be healthy enough to start a family.  For me, it's a strapless dress by September.  Once you make a goal you add what you are going to do fitness wise, nutrition wise, education wise and relaxation wise.  So make a small goal, and create a plan for yourself to reach it.  Try not to put a date on it unless it is attainable.  You have the ability to make the necessary changes, if you don't create a goal, what are you accepting for yourself?
