This is the last week of the weight loss challenge some of you still have to weigh in tonight for week 7 but week 8 weigh ins must be done either this coming Friday night or Saturday morning. Winner will be announced next Monday. So far I've seen a lot of really consistent losses and I think a lot of you guys really attacked it the right way instead of just trying to crash diet for temporary results. Hopefully you've learned something along the way about how and what you should and shouldn't be eating and will continue to eat the right way. This is the final push so stick to your plans and see it through.
Side Note: It's not often I find an article or write up on the internet that I don't at least find something I disagree with but this article was sent to me by a friend and it is almost like someone read my thoughts and wrote up every answer I've ever had to anyones questions about weight loss. I think it would be really valuable to a lot of you to read, keep and refer to this for all you weight loss questions... Click Here: http://physiqonomics.com/fat-loss/
8 Minutes to establish a Max load for:
1 Squat Clean Thruster + 2 Thrusters
When Max weight is established or at 8 mins, load workout weight onto the bar and rest.
Saturday at 9:30:
Make sure to be at the gym this Saturday for Brys health education project for her Community Health
Class. The project covers nutrition and the effects of certain foods
(sugars) on our bodies. It's a good opportunity for her to share what
she has learned and to help everyone understand what they should and
shouldn't be eating if they are looking to create good habits and how those bad habits are effecting your health. She has
asked to present the information to achieve credit for her class and I
think it will be beneficial for everyone to hear it. Help her out and
be there to listen and learn. This is for everyone, even if you don't
typically come to the Saturday morning class come by at 9:30 to
take in the information.
Teams of 2 complete as many rounds as possible in 20 minutes of:
45/30 Calories Bike
Current weight loss standings with 4 Weigh Ins to go:
This is only meant to show you where you currently stand in the rankings. Overall a lot of you are right on target and steadily dropping as you should. The standings must be taken somewhat lightly because obviously some of you were not in this challenge to win it and more so to just clean up your diet and shed just a few extra pounds. Have you done that? Others obviously had more to lose and were going into it with either a goal weight in mind or to all out win the money....are you giving it all your effort? Take a look at the current placing and ask yourself if you are where you set out to be 4 weeks ago and decide what you'll change or continue to do in order to be successful or not in the next 4 weeks. Keep in mind that it is just that simple and like so much else, it really is a "get what you give" situation and completely up to you. Overall I'm happy with what I see so far and think we'll have made some real nice progress come March.
