04/19/2011 Day 9 After Biggest Loser Malibu

04/19/2011 Morning session of Cardio Intervals was far tougher than I anticipated.  There’s something deceptively difficult about the increases every thirty seconds, and for some strange reason it always feels easier on the way up then on the way back down.  As per my previous posting about Cardio Intervals I went ahead and did three…

04/18/2011 Day 8 After Biggest Loser Resort Malibu

04/18/2011 Monday Morning Mountain.  What better way to start the week then getting up early, and beating yourself up on an Arc Trainer with a session of Mountain.  I started with a five minute warm up with the incline on level 5 and the resistance level on 25.  By the end of the session I…

Day 6 After Biggest Loser Malibu

04/16/2011 And on the 6th day the big guy rested.  Today was my first day of much needed rest.  My body this morning had fallen and did not want to get up.  Because of the rain (which meant my business was closed), I was able to lie in bed until 10:00 AM, my partner in…

Day 5 After Biggest Loser Resort Malibu

04/15/11 I took Benny boy for another 2.2 mile walk this morning, I’m sure people in the neighborhood that I walk through thought I was having convulsions because I was using part of the walk as my dynamic warm up.  Picture yourself having breakfast in your kitchen, drinking a cup of coffee, reading the Washington…

Day 4 After Biggest Loser Malibu

04/15/2011 I woke up this morning at 6:30 AM, took my dog for a 2.2 mile walk, and then headed straight to the gym.  This morning I felt sore, tired, and dehydrated.  I’m finding it tough to stay hydrated; I think I’m consuming more electrolyte tablets at home then on the ranch.  Perhaps not filling…

Day 3 After Biggest Loser Malibu

April 13th 2011 I woke up today a few hours later than I had anticipated.  I wanted to leave Arlington before 8:00 AM so I could start hiking by 9:00 AM.  Unfortunately I didn’t leave the area until 9:00 AM, which meant by the time I reached the trailhead of Big Devil’s Staircase it was…

Day 2 After Leaving the Biggest Loser Resort Malibu

Tuesday 12th 2011 I walked to the Washington Sports Club in Clarendon which is a 3 minute walk from my house.  The funny thing is I joined this gym about a year ago, and was thinking about canceling my membership.  I went there today with only one thing in my mind, “I HOPE THEY HAVE…

First Monday After Biggest Loser Resort Malibu

Monday April 11, 2011 My return home from the resort, put me right in front of a pile of back logged work, bills, pissed off employees, and customer’s which required “special attention”.  The funny thing was I didn’t feel stressed; I did my best to stay calm, I used breathing techniques to bring my mind…
