OK admittedly I am a Biggest Loser fan I've posted about it before. I try to DVR each week so that I can watch it all without the commercials (Is there any show with as many commercials?). I love watching the successes and failures of the contestants it's a really fun show to watch. But recently, now that I am on my own journey of fitness I am watching this show with a different eye.
I 've noticed there are several consistencies during the show the contestants eat well, exercise, and weigh in at the end of each week. But there is one part of the show that has always intrigued me the "Last Chance Workout". The reason I'm so intrigued is I wonder it really possible to drop weight during a single workout? I guess furiously exercising before a weigh in seems like it might help drop as much as a couple of pounds to my logic. Yes I know that a lot of that is water weight, but an intense workout does burn the calories so presumably it is possible to drop.
This week I did cheat a bit in the food area especially with that pork centric meal midweek. But for the most part, I have eaten pretty healthy, or so I thought. I jumped the gun a bit and did a (pre) weigh in yesterday and it looks like I've gained a pound. My muscles have been sore and I know that it is possible I am retaining some water there. UGH! This is not where I want to be or to end this week. I am going to attempt my own version sometime tomorrow of a "Last Chance Workout". I am not sure what I am going to do but I will figure it out. With any luck and a lot of sweat perhaps I can walk off a pound and a half and still have a loss for the week.
