Work It Out

I have a confession to make. I am more than slightly obsessed with the television show “The Biggest Loser”. Not only does the show have an awesome name, but it is informative and downright entertaining. I know I’ll get in trouble for this, but there is a little part of me that absolutely loves to watch Jillian Michaels yell at morbidly obese people. There is a guy on this season that weighed 500lbs at the start of the show. I think once you get to be that big (he said he doesn’t call the pizza place anymore, they just bring pizza to him every night at 8:00) it’s time for some tough love.

I have always been the worlds least healthy “health nut”. By this I mean I really love to learn about food and nutrition and exercise but I hate vegetables and I only run if someone is chasing me. I am fascinated at what we put into our bodies and how that can affect everything from your heath to your face and skin. I know exactly what to do to be a healthy person. I have just chosen not to do any of it until now.

If you read this blog you already know I have given up smoking. Really! I go out to bars in Europe and I don’t light a cigarette! Amazing. Please believe me when I tell you that this takes extreme will power. But, I am well on the road to recovery. I will be totally honest here and tell you that I have cheated. A friend gave me a cigarette to walk home with the other night and I did not enjoy it! I threw it out. It is the same with food. I know that sugar is bad for me and will not make me look the way I want, so no sugar.

I feel that by watching The Biggest Loser I am motivating myself to be a better me. I mean if that guy who weighs 500lbs can workout everyday for like seven hours, then I can go to the gosh darn gym three times a week. Sure I don’t have trainers pushing me or the chance to win a million dollars, but I don’t need it. I have will power and determination. And that’s all it takes really. Well, that and hard work. But I can do that. Being lazy is a lifestyle choice that leads to unflattering pictures, more knowledge about America’s Next Top Model than anyone really needs, and sleeping alone. And none of these things is acceptable for me.
