Yay for TBL Tuesday!!!

I am really, really happy it is Tuesday. I absolutely LOVE watching The Biggest Loser (aka TBL) and it starts a new season tonight. Watching the changes these people make is so inspiring and I am always thrilled to see people taking control of their lives to become healthier. Given, I don't necessarily agree with all of the ways the show goes about getting progress for these people with such extreme measures, I still am an avid watcher to see the transformations these people make. I am sure there will be quite a few times something on that show sparks a discussion here - so be prepared. ;) Another GREAT thing about TBL Tuesdays is my sister will be coming over to watch them with me every week (hopefully). She should be coming tonight and I look forward to it because she is one of my very best friends and I always enjoy spending time with her. 

In other news - today was a pretty basic day. Nothing too eventful at all. I got up and had my coffee/whey shake before hitting the gym for a cardio only workout (LOVE days where I only have to worry about ONE thing). During the day, I did some playing with Makenzie, cleaning, food prep, reading, eating (all ON plan of course), and fiddling with the blog so I could add some link pages to pictures/about me/workouts/etc (found at the top of my blog), and that's about it. I wish it wasn't so icky here because it would have been nice to get out for a stroll around the neighborhood now that fall weather is starting to creep in - which I am so so thrilled about. Fall has become my favorite season over the past few years because of the numerous fun and comforting activities during such a beautiful season. So that's all I have to report now. I hope you all have had Terrific Tuesdays as well :)
