Jillian Michaels, oh how I love/hate you! I can barely walk today after doing 30 minutes of her Banish Fat Boost Metabolism workout. OHEMGEEE! Let's do that again!!
Below is a bit of an infomercial to help fill our ranks as we prepare to open the door at the "BLC ranch."
I've been counting down since BLC 25 completed. Are you interested in a 12 week challenge that will focus on you, help you lose weight, and forge great new friendships with like-minded individuals?
The Biggest Loser Challenge (also known as the BLC) is a 12 week challenge that was inspired by the TV show of the same name. It's been around for over 8 years encouraging HEALTHY weight loss and fitness. It's like a sub-culture of the Sparkpeople sub-culture! I'm glad it's had some staying power because I have personally tried it out a number of times and it wasn't until I landed on a team that was a good fit for my needs that it really worked for me.
So, if you have been looking for a team to motivate, support, and challenge you, I encourage you to check out the BLC. There are a number of teams, all with a unique focus. But don't take my word for it. Check out this message board where existing members are sharing their thoughts about the BLC:
Register now to become part of the 26th round of the Biggest Loser Challenge. Meet new friends when you join a team chosen by you based on your needs. There is no better program to give you the accountability you need and the support you deserve, while having FUN together getting to goal....sign up today!

The long awaited Ninja arrived today, along with the Mag07 magnesium supplement. I'll let you know what I think when I make the next batch of smoothies!
I definitely got my fill of animal protein this weekend. I feel like it's all sitting like a lead balloon in my belly! I'm back to smoothie and a piece of salmon for dinner tomorrow. Those sweet little filets are soaking in Chef Meg's Ginger Garlic Marinade.
Taking a break from the extreme cleanse means getting back to work. I did DDP Yoga in the morning and hit the elliptical tonight. That's one thing back to normal. Now to figure out the food. I kicked around doing the Whole 30. If I do, I'll want to modify the meal frequency. I'm kinda, sold on the idea of smaller, more frequent meals, rather that 3 squares a day. What I'll probably do is a modified Whole 30/Smoothie cleanse. More to come when I figure, it out.

I'm declaring victory with 4 of 10 days complete. I may attempt the 10 day full smoothie cleanse again, but I think I'm ready to switch to the Whole 30. My husband will be happy to get fed again!
Even though I didn't go the full 10 days, the experience was a breakthrough for me. I have the mental fortitude to take the more difficult path and come out the victor when an internal debate over food ensues. Big, big win for me.
And today I shop for real food that's going on the grill!
