Biggest Loser and Sneak Peak

Wow! That was some first couple of months on the new job. I started my boot camp in November, got hired on at the club in December and started working the first week of January. On January 16th, I was thrown head first into leading my very first Biggest Loser team during our New Year 8 Week Challenge. We had our final weigh in last night...aaaaaannnnnd..I do believe it was our BEST weigh in of all 8 weeks! The team held strong with an average weight loss of about 2 pounds per person each week. We were by far the most consistent of all the teams and I think we may just have won this thing. The big reveal will be at our Party in two weeks. I'm hoping the suspense doesn't kill me before then.

In other news...

I'm holding a fund raising raffle in April on this here blog and thought I would give y'all a sneak peak at some of our donors that are helping us to raise funds to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. More details to come, but for now I leave you with these lovelies:

Some sweet Bondi Bands


Some even sweeter (smelling) Sheebody creams


and for you interval geeks...

GymBoss has graciously donated one of their timers!! This is probably the one piece of workout equipment I just can't live without these days.

Raffle entries will be run directly through my Team in Training Page and I'll let you all know when the raffle starts and what the prize will look like in it's entirety.

It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
