Biggest Loser-Sayonara Julio

I watched the Biggest Loser last night, and Julio went home. I think he will do well on his own, he seems motivated to make a healthy lifestyle change. I am still not sure what the medical issue is with Crazy Eyes Tracey, er I mean Tracey. The doctor just said that she had a damaged muscle and couldn't exercise. Did she have a stroke? What muscle was damaged? They've never gotten into specifics, but it must be frustrating for her to not be allowed to do ANY type of exercise on a program designed for exercise and weight loss. Got to give her props for losing 4 pounds anyway. I can't believe Daniel didn't lose any weight. Good thing he had immunity.

The challenge where they had to guess the healthiest chicken dinner seemed easy (go with the skinless grilled chicken) but only 3 teams guessed right. I thought Daniel and Shay should have won the calorie guess game since there guess was closest, even though they went over. Shay could have used that prize of free groceries for a year. I'm rooting for Daniel, Coach Mo and Allen, but I have a feeling a girl could sneak in and win it this year.

Running Update
Ran 4 miles yesterday and another 4 today. Had to wear the knit cap and gloves this morning, it's getting chilly. I experimented with a new stride today that want to keep toying with. Basically turning the legs over quicker with a shorter stride, and kind of pulling through the pavement with my foot. My pace was about 30 sec/mile faster than normal and I didn't feel like I was expending any more energy. I'm going to keep trying it out.

good job with the running. Now seems like a good time to work to change your stride if you want.

if julio can really revamp his love for food into a healthy love, i think he'll do excellently! less dramatic show than last week but i wish tracey had gone home :-/ she is psycho! they certainly made it look like she wins the "power" next week... i sure hope not!!

glad the running is going well, hope the foot is behaving!

Hi! I'm Erin said...

I've read that the best running form is to act like you're doing running on a rolling log. So, shorter stride with quicker turn over. Sounds like you're doing exactly that!

Tracey is PSYCHO, seriously, something is NOT right there. She's kinda evil and a big, fat LIAR to boot. I can't believe no one really called her out to her face. She lied, straight up, don't trust her. Shay is too nice.

Sooooo next week please put "Spoiler Alert" in your title. I went to bed at 9PM and DVR'd the rest of the show... Hehehehe..

I will not be sad when Tracey goes home, there are serious issues there..

Thanks for the play by play now I know what to expect when I watch the rest of the show today..

I just can't get enough of that cute little Daniel. I am cheering for him, Allen, Coach Mo and Abby... I love her. After all she has been through, she is the most positive one there. I think Daniel drank his weight....

And tracey NEEDS to go. I feel bad she has had medical set backs, but she drives me crazy. I can't handle seeing her talk (eyes) or listening to her. She reminds me of someone I know... yikes

OMG... and if Tracey wins that challenge next week to be able to pick the teams... I WILL DIE... ok...

THE END
