Well, tonight is the season finale of Losing It. I will look forward to watching it and will anxiously wait for Biggest Loser to begin again in the fall, though I AM NOT WISHING THE SUMMER AWAY!
I am happy to start getting some great feedback from some of my students regarding how they have changed their eating and what it is translating to in their blood work! One of my long time SilverSneakers students, let me know yesterday that her blood sugar level is in the 90s for the first time in a long time. This kind of news makes me really happy.
Another student and I talked about our mutual affection for sugar laden food like Swedish fish, gummies and marshmallows. (Marshmallows, by the way, are not actual vegan due to what holds them together). I have just stopped buying that VOID of nutrition JUNK and that has helped a lot. I am not the type to run to the corner for a treat. Last night I snacked on some peanut butter and a little grape jelly. It did the trick and at least offered me the nutrition from the peanut butter.
Yesterday I managed to do about 1/2 the “legs and back” P90x video and most of ab ripper x before it was time to eat and go back to the gym. The program makes me feel stronger, almost immediately. Perhaps that, too, is part of what makes me love it (even though when I say love, I honestly mean LOVE/HATE). Today I will do one of the cardio videos (probably cardio x as I find that one goes the quickest). Also a swimming day, weather permitting. So far its been raining and Blaze and I are waiting for a break to take our morning walk.
Sending out some positive energy to some of my very favorite people who are enduring some physical and emotional struggles right now. Life can be so challenging.
Life can be so challenging, but just yesterday I was thinking about the small, unexpected miracles, that can turn an uneventful day into a cause for celebration…Unexpected miracles. I wish them for all of you today and every day.
Your messages to us are always filled with such positive energy and wonderful suggestions. I wake up each morning eager to read what you have to write. So…..please know that I, and I am sure many, use this site as not only informative BUT as inspirational and motivational as well.
As an aside, I love the short, daily afternoon sun showers……Mother Nature is definitely trying her best to cool us off and nourish the planet.
Enjoy your day!
Losing It tonight revolves around the Alvarez family in our own back yard – Hialeah Gardens.
Thanks again for the P90X loners – and for sharing your gym with me on Saturday – I will return them to you tonight. I ended up doing them at home last night by myself as no one wanted to join me in the gym. (Made me feel a bit lonely)
Rita – I’m sending all kinds of good thoughts your way. I miss you. xoxo
thanks for that link!

Bonni: You don’t just “send out” positive energy…you ARE positive energy!! I feel it the minute I walk in your class. You instill in us the peace and fitness we need to go through those life challenges you mention. I send back to you, the wish for those small unexpected miracles…they are around every minute of the day; we are just too busy to pay attention to them! Keep on writing! Love, Sylna

I really liked visiting your blog, and it looks wonderful. If you get a chance you should visit my blog as well. I hope you have a nice day!
Thanks for taking the time to write that, I found it very educational. If you get a chance you should visit my blog as well. I hope you have a nice day!
do you know if jillian’s show will be on again? i haven’t heard anything about it.
Kat…to the best of my knowledge Losing It was just a summer filler for this year. But–keep in mind that is exactly how Biggest Loser began–so you never know!

It’s almost time for Biggest Loser. Do you know when the first episode of the new season is?
