Fitness Ridge

ok so..sorry it has taken me so long to catch up. The schedule is pretty tight until after our last lecture at night and that usually ends between 7 and 7:30 and by then we are pooped, or doing laundry or watching BL :) or catching up with the fam.
One thing i need to share today is that.... this is not entirely the place i thought i was signing up for. I knew it had a spa and some classes but their focus really is no over all health. NOT JUST WEIGHT LOSS. That being said, they do not care if i lose 5 or 10 pounds while i am here.
I thought I would come here and potentially lose 5 to 10 lbs. Now that being said,,,i possibly could, but not most likely.
I just want you to know, so that you are not disappointed,because they are teaching me about so much more than i could imagine. that will hopefully lead to the dream, wich is being a leaner healthier me, with a healthy reationship with food, and will END THE DIETING CAREER!!!!!!

Tonight at the lecture i didn't' have a light bulb moment. But the dietitian did do a great job of teaching us the importance of having a healthy normal relationship with food. Which for 16 years, i have not.

they are teaching us.....
what foods are best to eat, and how to eat balanced meals.
how many calories to eat.
how to learn to intuitively eat(i.e. normal eating)
how to push ourselves.
how to walk into any fitness class and feel confident even if you have never attempted it before.
how to stretch properly.
how to feel good about ourselves basically.
how to overcome.
how to trust ourselves.
how to enjoy healthy whole foods.
how to cook them.
how to emotionally eat when necessary.
how to have a treat without feeling guilty.

if you are not a professional dieter, this may sound stupid, and I get that. But for me.... it IS GOOD. life changing, and priceless.

I expressed my disappointment that it is called BL's fitness ridge. that is just because the producer of the show, basically likes it here and they have a similar program.

that being said... they said tonight that we may not lose much in one week, because our body's are in shock basically, but in the next week or two, we can expect it to show up, if we keep up with a program they will help send us home with.

Thanks again for all the love and support!
