Workout: 50 minutes "Biggest Loser: Power Sculpt" and 2+ mile walk with Denali.
Can you believe it? I'm on the cover Esquire magazine. Seriously. I am. Mark always tells me how
Anyway ... that's not what I'm here to talk about. I'm hear to throw in my 4 cents (yes, I get 4) about last night's "Biggest Loser."
You see, I was watching the second half of the show this morning as I ate my pumpkin chip pancakes and drank my coffee. I saw the weigh-in get thrown, Jillian getting all exasperated and the "Where Are They Now?" clip.
(Spoiler alert! Spoiler alert!)
Rick was looking awesome. He was down 120 pounds, eating good dinners with his family and playing with his grandchildren. Of course, those caught-on-camera moments are probably the only times he has seen his family since leaving the ranch.
The 54-year-old shared that since he's been home, he works out 1.5-2 hours before work, 1.5 hours after work, goes home and eats dinner and the heads back to the gym to workout for another 1.5 hours.
Hold. The. Phone. Seriously. That's up to FIVE HOURS a day of exercise. Count 'em: 1 ... 2 ... 3 ... 4 ... 5. And I've been thinking that the next two weeks of level 3 "Boot Camp"/"Power Sculpt" might be too time consuming at just shy of an hour when you factor in runs/walks with Denali and my desire to shower before work.
I don't know how he does it. More importantly, I don't know how he is going to keep doing it. One of the most important factors in any weight-loss effort is doing something that you can MAINTAIN over a lifetime. I exercise no differently now than I did when I was losing weight. I really don't eat that differently, either. I just eat more of the same things (and put chocolate chips in my pancakes).
What do you think? Do you consider Rick's efforts to be healthy, well, healthy?
