The Biggest Loser in 2011 (Update1).
Exactly one week ago, Lynsey from La Rosilla and ourselves , took on the Biggest Loser 2011 challenge, following a strict detox diet, with view to starting off on a regime of healthier eating , and getting back in shape, as part of our New Year resolutions for 2011.
Today, we would like to give you some feedback on our experiences.
Firstly, I have to admit that the so-called Wonder Soup was the least consumed food in the whole suggested diet. The first day it tasted really good but maybe that was just down to our enthusiasm for a new venture. The second time it tasted ok and then just looking at it made my stomach churn. Luckily though, it was not required. Thanks to input from many people, we managed to survive the week consuming only the recommended daily foods.
“You worry me.”
“Sorry to burst yoyr bubble folks but …..!”
“Have you committed murder yet?”
“My God, you guys are NUTS!!”
“I also wanted to let you know that we tried the detox you are doing (I laughed when I saw it! ) and lasted only two days, it was hell!!”
We are under no illusions. We decided to take on this personal challenge with view to preparing our bodies to be more receptive to a change in eating habits. Hopefully, allowing us to see quicker results for our efforts towards healthier eating and fitness.
It is simply a matter of needs and wants. And this time, the wants win over the needs. So, if you want to give it a go, our advice is “Go for it”! And if you can, encourage some friends to do it with you.
Oh, and for those that do not know us; between hubby and myself, we run three businesses and have two young children, so if you want to blame that little thing called “time” for not taking the challenge, all I can say is … think again!
So, tomorrow morning we will see if we have lost any weight. I must admit I do feel a lot better, detox headaches and slight dizzy spells now over. More than anything, whether I have achieved any weight loss or not, this experience has made me seriously look at what I am eating and has reignited my passion for healthy eating.
We are now looking forward to receiving some inspirational and tasty, healthy recipes from La Rosilla .
