- The most memorable part was when that guy (might have been the guy who got voted out) said, "I have a bad knee because of a football injury in high school." Uh, NO - you have a bad knee because your forcing it carry around all that fat.
- I loved seeing them all on those bikes. They worked their asses off for that!
- I want Jillian's arms!

I have a few topics here in no particular order: Base Training - Holy crap I'm out of shape. Seriously. I'm glad I took two (almost three actually) months to be a glutton and overall slacker doing the bare minimum, but damn. This week I kicked it up a notch and have added two a days to the mix. I don't remember two a days ever being this exhausting even when the intensity was significantly higher. Running - So I'm running a trail race this weekend. Only 10 miles. Notice I didn't say 'racing' a trail race. I do have my race schedule for the first half of 2010 that I'll post at some point. I still have a couple of weeks before I have to really get serious about it though. Basically, the first half of the year focuses on running. The first quarter short course (5k's and a 10k) and the second quarter emphasis on a half marathon PR. Trainer - how long will it take my vaj jay jay to "toughen up"? I've only started riding it twice a week for 2 weeks now so obviously, still a new workout, but just wondering..... How often do you change your hand positions? Are you constantly moving them around or does everyone have a spot that is most comfortable? So far, I can't imagine riding this bike for longer than an hour at a time. Is that normal. I find the most comfortable spot is NOT on the brake hudz, but just above them....is that cool? Do you wear your bike gloves on the trainer? helmet? (kidding about the helmet - don't answer that one) Any additional tips that you wish someone would have told you when you first started using a trainer? Don't be shy. Biggest Loser - So I watched the season premier the other night and it was my first time ever watching a whole show. It was interesting. I think I lost 5 pounds in tears. Sad stories, but I maintain my position about people making a conscious decision to become obese. Sorry, but you don't just wake up one day and notice your 500 pounds. I was sad someone had to leave. I wish they could all stay at the compound and get the opportunity to loose the weight, but I understand that's a HUGE part of the motivation.
