Can't believe it's almost been a week

Since I last posted. No excuse really other then being busy at work and trying to squeeze in workouts.

Let me back up to Saturday, there were no evident changes in the meeting since it was purchased by Weight Watchers Int'l. I suspect they will come.

Had a great weigh in as I was down 1.8 lb. So that meant not only did I get rid of the damage of my co-workers goodbye party which caused me to avoid weigh in the week before but I also beat my last recorded weigh in from 2 weeks ago.

Then I went to the gym and did the 5 miles for my training plan, it was brutal as the treadmill resets every half an hour but I did it.

On Monday I got contacted to see if I wanted to do a review of Smart Ones by a marketing agency and I accepted the task. That will be tomorrow's post so stay tuned.

Of course Monday was also the Biggest Loser finale.

Now I know Gina wasn't the most popular contestant but I couldn't help but cheer her on. I really like to see the people over the age of 30 and 40 succeed (inspiration) and she definitely came around.

Not surprised Danni won but wowsers by just 1 pound was a shocker of a moment. She was a beast and I say that with the utmost respect. She got out of her own way and succeeded. Original source of the photos was

What I'd love to see from this franchise is another where are they now specials.

Tuesday I hit the treadmill again and it was a rough run as I have late meetings on Tuesdays. I stuck it out for 30 min which follows the minimum of my training plan. On Monday I had an unexpected late meeting and got back to my room just in time for the Biggest Loser finale.

Flew home on Wednesday and thought we might not take off as a winter storm warning blew in. It was crazy it was the first time in the almost 5 years I've been flying for work that they told us to the hold hand rail on the way into the airplane. However we made it and it was gorgeous in Calgary with +12 and sunny.

Today I headed into the Calgary office as I had meetings, the weather sure shifted as it was snowing with cold wind. Today was also the day I had the coffee date with the guy from Jr. High. This is the one the psychic thought was the immature person in my life.

The coffee was o.k, we talked for the whole hour and had some laughs. I could tell when we first me he sort of sized me up. He told all about his past relationships which I wasn't expecting as I was thinking this was coffee with a friend. Not sure what will come of it if anything but it was a pleasant chat.

Had plans to leave the office by 4:15, that turned out to be an hour later and when I got to my home station I thought I might as well do some grocery shopping tonight as tomorrow the wind chills are double digits.

All in all a good week, I do hope all of you had a good week.

I was also glad to see Gina win the at home portion. Lots of people use their age as an excuse. She showed us it is possible to lose a lot in your late 40's.

I was also shocked that Danni's win was by such a slim margin. She deserved it the most. Jeff didn't seem to work as hard on the ranch.
