The Biggest Loser II

  01/07/13 22:03, by , Categories: General

I’m running a “Biggest Loser” contest at work for the next 12 weeks. We’ve got 15 participants that each chipped in $15 to be distributed to the top 3 losers.

I’ve only gained 7 pounds since my final weigh-in from the 2008 Biggest Loser contest. I could still stand to lose some weight, though. I did a quick BMI calculation and I’m a pound or two over the line to be considered overweight. It would be great if I could get down to a good healthy weight and gain some muscle mass.

Last time around, I pretty much lost all of my weight on diet alone. This time, my plan is to not only count my calories, but exercise at least five days a week.

Having tv shows on my tablet to watch while running on the treadmill makes that activity a lot more appealing. While that is a great way to burn calories, I need to do some muscle-building activities as well.

You should try push ups. Very simple to get started. Don’t need weights, don’t need a gym. Just need you and the floor. And you might not think it’s hard, but I challenge you to drop down right now and crank out as many as you can.

I’ve got an app for my phone from http://hundredpushups.com that takes you through a 7 week program to be able to complete 100 push ups at one time. It’s pretty tough. You don’t have to have the app to do the plan.

Yeah, push ups and crunches are a great idea. I’m now planning on doing some of those daily. Thanks for the suggestion. I also have access to some yoga programs through my cable provider, so that’s another good option for me to work on body tone rather than pure weight loss.

There’s a kind of famous reddit post from 4 years ago about that 100 push up program you mentioned. It’s been parodied many times.
