A different approach
So you ever see The Biggest Loser and say "well yeah I could lose that much weight if I had all day to work out." Well I don't have ALL day to workout but in between what I do in a day, I do have time for an extra workout. So starting today I am implementing that. We have our usual workout schedule and now I have an alternate schedule. This morning I did Hollywood Trainer for 45 minutes and burned 990 calories. Tonight I'll do the scheduled workout too which is Turbo Fire 55 and will burn close to that amount again. I have no idea if this will work and this will NOT be for an extended period of time. I will listen to my body, stay hydrated and if there is a hint of trouble from it, I'll cut that workout. But for the time being, I'm going to give it a go and see if anything comes of it. I wanted to check with him first because I wanted him to be in a place mentally where if I began losing twice the amount consistently (say 3-4 lbs and I know even that is pushing it and no you don't have to tell me that's above a "healthy" average for weight loss) would he be able to handle that? I said if he didn't want me to or was uncomfortable with that I absolutely would not do that. He gave an enthusiastic green light to it and I'm glad that we felt like we could discuss all of the little aspects this plan could bring. I am so thankful to have such a great support on this journey!
