The Opportunity Of A Lifetime

January 15, 2013

bob-jillian-the-biggest-loser-489492_300_382People ask me if I watch The Biggest Loser.  Does it motivate me?  Did I ever try to get on it?  Do I think the trainers are too hard?

Well… I don’t watch.  I’m not gonna get into every reason why I don’t (maybe in another post :)… ), but I am going to tell you one of them:

I get very frustrated when people get on the show only to quit.  I understand how difficult it can be to lose weight… TRUST ME, I do… but I don’t understand how people can get such an amazing chance – an opportunity of a lifetime – and just walk away because it’s too difficult. I mean, the show is one of the most popular on television.  You have SEASONS of episodes that you can watch, so you KNOW what you’re getting into; grueling workouts, ‘tough love’ trainers, public weigh-ins… this isn’t a surprise!

Well, the Universe works in very mysterious ways.  My beliefs on that topic are about to be put to the test… because I have been given one of those ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunities.

ryan hughes by rick day 00Ryan Hughes is a professional body builder, fitness model, high-end personal trainer , creator of the Blast Training System and, starting today, he’s going to help li’l ol’ ME lose the rest of this weight and get in the best shape of my life!  I have the honor of being selected to be one of the first 6 clients as part of his Project Transformation… in other words, over the next 16 weeks I’m gonna be pushed in ways I’ve never been pushed as part of an opportunity that many wanted but only six of us were chosen for.

There’s gonna be A LOT more information in the coming days and weeks for sure, and I can’t wait to share this journey with you all!

However, for now – go ahead and ‘Like’ his Facebook page and follow my journey with Ryan to take that next step in my journey to total wellness.

You’re all such a huge support to me – THANK YOU ALL for reading – and fasten your seatbelt, because IT’S TIME TO STEP MY GAME UP!!!
