Week one vacation update for Suzi, our biggest loser contestant

It has been one week today since Suzi got to Florida for her 10 day trip. We missed our last workout before she left due to the heavy rains that occured throughout the state last Tuesday. We missed our official weigh in that day so not sure where we stand on the weight this week.

Suzi left for her trip in a very positive state of mind for continuing her exercise regimen and vowing to eat as well as possible. After the email I received today, I would say things are going pretty well.

I overnighted bands and a workout routine for Suzi to follow once in Florida. She did join a gym for the 10 days she is down there for $75. This way she has a place to do cardio in addition to her oustide activities. The workout I sent her consisted of alot of band work, which we have been progressing on, core work, squats and deadlifts and some arm work. I want her doing cardio two times a day every other day and pushing herself daily on her beach walks.

Suzi went to the vitamin shope and purchased a large container of whey protein to eat before and after her workouts and for a healthy snack. She is eating alot of veggies and friends have said that she is not eating enough, but they are Italians! She thinks she may be down a pound or two, which I think is great, considering she is on her own for the first time with endless opportunities to eat whatever she wants and not exercise. Looking forward to getting back on track next Tuesday and kicking it up a notch.
