"Just keep swimming! Just keep swimming," Dory from Finding Nemo.

The results are in ladies and gentlemen: I lost another 3 pounds!!! Can you believe it? I was super excited to see the results on the scale. I have to admit that I was very nervous to step on that scale. According to the scale at the gym on Monday evening, I had only lost 1.2 pounds (seriously I thought "only 1 pound" - I mean 2 weeks ago, I would have been thrilled by losing a pound in a week). It just proves that you should not weigh yourself daily because it may affect your attitude.

The rest of the team did AWESOME too. Be sure to keep checking out: On a side note: the website and paper are a week behind us (like on TV), so the blog will be a week ahead. I do not want to reveal the whole teams results until it is published, but we are ALL doing AWESOME!

Here are the weight losses that are published for this week:

David Drayer: -5.0 lbs.
Richard Feld: -7.5 lbs.
Susan Feidelman: -6.5 lbs.
Jen Green (me): -4.5 lbs.
Tina Hardy: -5.0 lbs.

Go Blue! We are giving it 100% and the results speak for themselves. BTW: Susan leads the women (on both teams) with the most % of weight loss. Go Susan! And she was worried that she would not lose any weight! I can tell that she is in the lead: her body is looking better and better everyday. It is so awesome to witness first hand!

With these results, we are also tied with the Red Team with a total of 2.5% weight loss for the entire team. I wish we were ahead for the competition part of this challenge, but it is too cool that both teams are doing so well. We like to talk smack with the Red Team, but we are still excited to see them lose weight too. For their results be sure to check out the website list above.

This morning, I did 20 minutes on the bike at 8 which was 4.7 miles and my heart stayed around 160. Next, I walked on the treadmill at 15% incline and the speed was between 1.7 and 2.0 (it varied) for about 25 minutes and my heart rate was about 165. I stretched for the last 15 minutes and felt really energized.

Tonight, we workout with the trainers again. I have no idea what is in store, but I am going to "just keep swimming" and let the results do the talking!
