Day 1

What an amazing day! This place is awesome beyond my wildest dreams.  I've been very adventurous food wise.  I said before I came that I would try anything they served and I have done so.  Which included eating mushrooms, cantaloupe, raw tomatoes, olives, palanta and french onion soup.  I even put cauliflower and cucumbers on my salad.  None of these foods would've ever made their way onto my plate before.  But when you're burning 4300 calories in the day and know you only get 1100, you eat what they put on your plate!  My tummy and taste buds are still adjusting but it's all been delicious so far.  It's crazy what can happen when you open your mind to new possibilities. 

The workouts yesterday were intense but really great.  The hike was a butt kicker, and apparently it was only a four on the tough scale so I would hate to see what a 10 is like.  I had a great group to do it with though that pushed me beyond my limits.  Meeting a lot of great people out here too.  Everyone is so nice!! Staff and guests. It's such a welcoming atmosphere with no judgement and one common goal.  I am so happy here.  Hoping today will feel a little less crazy now that I'm getting used to the 15 minutes between classes to run back and forth between your room, aerobic center, pool or gym.  I have my stuff in piles by the door so when I come back in the door, I know what bag to grab and take with me. 



Ok, I'm off to stretch class!  Have a great Tuesday!

Hi Lyndee! I work where you work (keeping it secret, just in case!), and was selected for the Healthy Weight Small Group this year. Our trainer gave us your blog and I think it's so cool that you get to do this. I hope you'll keep us updated with your progress and what you're up to. You are an inspiration!!! And hopefully, we'll bump into you at the wellness centers at work when you get back!

Loved reading about your Day 1 adventures. Looks like the morning was a little light (c'mon), but the afternoon was a killer. Hope you survived.

Loved hearing about your "Day 1" adventures. Seriously, your morning looked a little light, but guessing the afternoon was a killer. Hope you survived. :-)

Mushrooms! Yucks! LOL! But like you said we have to be opened to new things. Way to go!
