Day Two of MFP and the Biggest Loser Premiere

Today was my second day using MFP, and I have to say... it's been an interesting exercise and is JUST what the doctor ordered!

Deciding on Dinner
I tracked all of my food today (1204 calories total) and I made better decisions about dinner.  I re-routed on I-15 in Idaho today due to an accident.  As a result, I was over an hour late getting to the hotel.  Dinner at 8pm doesn't really work for this girl.  

So, as I was driving, I was contemplating other "faster" options for dinner.  Keep in mind, it takes 75 seconds to cook the JC Rotini and Meatballs

In reality, I was craving bad food and had gotten WAY too hungry.  My options were to stick with the food I had planned (Rotini and Meatballs + 2 McDonalds side salads) or to leap into habit (Cafe Rio Salad - Grilled chicken, lettuce, pico, guac, and dressing.)  If I had gone with the Cafe Rio option, I would have wiped out the exercise I did this morning, and I just couldn't.

Entering the food into the system made me realize what the sacrifice was.  And, in the end, it wasn't worth it.   

I like that I'm double-checking the math, that I'm considering the worth of my snacking, etc.  I truly think this is going to change the whole process for me.

Peer Pressure = Working Out
I also logged some exercise already this week... ON DAY TWO!  I'm not the biggest fan of exercise, as you likely know.  The fact that I got to log it and that my friend Laurel would see it made me MORE motivated to do it!  Thanks, LP!

I didn't do a TON just 30 minutes, but I did something which is more than what I usually do!  And, I burned off 194 calories - - Woo hoo!

New Friends
Several of you guys have also now joined MFP!  And, thanks to those of you who've linked up with me!  Let's keep each other motivated.  I also set it so you can see what I'm really eating... as an extra source of motivation/peer pressure.  Keep in mind, when I'm on the road... I do what I can to get by, and it will look much more normal when I'm home next week. :)

I heart Biggest Loser.  The show is SOOOOO freakin' motivating.  Tonight was the premiere, and I was absolutely bummed to be stuck somewhere between Utah and Idaho instead of plopped down in front of the TV watching this show.

I got to the hotel in time for the last 45 minutes and the weigh in.  Can you imagine LOSING 21 LBS in ONE WEEK????  I can't even imagine!  

I HAVE to believe that you guys are watching this show, too... and if you're not, I'd consider it.  These guys are amazing and oh-so-motivating!

Confession:  This season of the Biggest Loser is extra awesome to watch, especially considering that last year when I watched the show I seriously thought to myself that maybe I should apply.  I had even thought about how I could "get by" living on the ranch and paying my mortgage, etc.  This year, it's incredible to watch knowing that I don't have to think about becoming a contestant as I'm likely below the minimum weight they'd accept.  CHEERS!

So far, I don't have any favorites as I've only seen the last 45 minutes, but I'm going to watch it via DVR and get caught up on all that I missed.  I'll probably weigh-in (no pun - initially - intended) weekly on the show and who I'm rooting for.

I'm watching it right now! Tivoed it last night and now I'm catching up. I won't miss an episode, I find it to be the most inspiring weight loss show on TV. Oh man how it always makes me cry.
