Spoiler Alert

I'm watching the "Biggest Loser" finale as I write this.  I know from twitter that Dani won, and that Jeff was ounces behind her.  I'm okay with knowing, I don't love surprises.  But dang, these people got pretty in 6 months.  Does anyone else ever think this when they watch the BL finales?  That Day-um, is it really possible that it's only weight loss doing this?

I'm taking notes from the First Episode and the finale on Before and After shots.  It's all about looking sad and grumpy, and frumpy, then having professional hair, makeup, wardrobe, and potential dental work before your "After" is taken.

In theory, I've had before and after pictures.  They're really gratifying, but I can't say that they rival Miss Olivia.  Am I the only one who is so obsessed with her?

May 2007.

August 2008.  If you're wondering, that's 50 pounds, kids.  50 flippin' pounds.

I just got done running tonight.  I told my newest declared Bestie that I run so that I can have wine.  I really miss working out for the enjoyment of it, but most of the workouts I enjoy, like cycling, rock climbing, hiking, are long affairs.  Since I no longer have that time, running for maintenance is kind of where I'm at right now.  Oh yeah, and for that half marathon thing I'm doing in August.  I still need friends to sign up to help me with that.  It's a net downhill, and I will buy the beers of anyone who joins me.  Again... I am the Queen of the bribes.  You need to recognize =).

All this could be yours.  Unless you don't drink.  Then I'll shake your protein shake for you and buy you a cheeseburger.

You know you want it.

I've been trying to find some new health/fitness products to review.  I'm getting bored with #20minaday.  I find myself wanting something harder.  But let's face it... my animosity towards Tony Horton and Jillian Michaels seriously limits my options.  I have some great things lined up for May, but I'm bored NOW. Talk about a first world fitness problem, right?  If any of you have ideas, please share.  I welcome them with open inbox.

Oh lookie, Dani just won by 1 pound.  It's a good thing that wasn't totally spoiled by twitter.  #sarcasm.

I've been so hungry it isn't funny today.  I'm trying to ignore it.  If you saw my lunch, you would all wonder how I could possibly be hungry.  Watching BL doesn't help, it just makes me crave TCBY.  Do you remember when I used to post about yogurt and ice cream?  Me too.

We actually went the other night, and I had NSA yogurt with berries and almonds.  It was not the same thing.  My soul died as Ammon poured my favorite marshmallow sauce on his yogurt, and then declared it "too sweet".  Those words don't fit together in my personal lexicon.  Sugar addiction is real, guys, and I have it.

I just found out that "Catfish" is on Hulu+.  This is the best news I've had in days.  I need me some Nev and Max in my life for sure.

And on that note, I'm gonna throw it out old school MTV, and say "It's been real".  Yup.


  1. I hate the whole "frump" factor on Biggest Loser. The before pics, the sports bras and spandex they were for the weigh-ins, it just seems like they want to make them look as awful as possible. The clothes always fit poorly, they always look mad, etc.

  2. This is the randomest, but I love it. I'd love to run a half marathon with you. I'm telling you, this pesky middle-America is totally dividing our chances at being super fit and super wine-filled.

  3. bahahaha - you always make me laugh! No fitness excitement ideas for you - I'm doing a 5 mile walking routine that I like, but it's not terribly exciting. And I think those before and after shots have more to do with a team of professional people making you look good. But you're right... day-um does she look good!

  4. Mmm did you have to show me all that food?

    I love Catfish. Totally freaks me out but SO GOOD.

  5. OK, first of all your before and after picks ARE equally amazing. The only thing they're missing are the professional lighting and high res cameras.

    I have no ideas on the bored while running front. Except maybe listen to books on tape while you run?

  6. I had never seen Catfish until today (MTV reruns). OMW. I am kind of addicted now!

  7. I felt so bad for Jeff when he lost by ONE measly pound. He looked so crushed!

    I want to say I'd run a half marathon with you, but I'm not sure I could do it! I'm working up the nerve to run a 5k in May. So yeah, that's where I am right now. It's not pretty.

    CATFISH. They're filming season 2 right now. So excited I can't handle it.

  8. It's not really fair - their before/after pictures include a tanning session and a makeover! You should still feel accomplished - you look great!!! :)


I love comments! Please let me know how you feel, and make sure I have a way to get back with you, so we can be friends :-)
