Birkie 2012

I had the best Birkie race EVER! It was a beautiful day and the snow was so much fun!! I was so happy from the first K to the last 50K!!! 32 miles through the woods on skinny skis...that is my idea of the best time EVER! The hills were a bit tricky just because the snow was soooo soft but I took it easy and paced myself out just right! It was the very first Birkie where I did not stop on any of the hills to gasp for breath! I made it up and over the top of every hill! The down hills were FAST!!!!! I did NOT snow plow! I LOVED has taken a lot of hard work and TONS of coaching to not snow plow all the time down those screaming fast hills! (Thanks to Jim Boldra for all his AMAZING patients teaching me this sport!!!)

I was so happy to have Emma there all weekend to take in Birkie Fever! She really had fun! We got to ski together, dance together, and meet TONS of people from all over the world!!!

Most of my friends are ready to hang up their skis the day after the Birkie but I will ski as long as there is snow! I love it. I could ski every day of my life!!!

Follow me during the Birkie on Saturday

My third Birkebeiner!!! You can follow me if you want! Click here!!!!

Who knows how I will do??? Who knows what the conditions will be??? How will my asthma be? So many things to find out during this race!! Will my camelbak freeze walking to the start like last year? Will some crazed lunatic skier take me out like on the Pre-Birkie?

This is what I LOVE about xc skiing!! You just NEVER know what the day will bring! So many just have to take them as they come!

Things to remember: eat, drink, and go slow until you hit the half way (25k) mark (that is harder than it sounds!!!!)

Things to do: Smile, don't forget to look around, meet my friends (and Emma this year) at the Hayward Bakery at the end and eat a cookie!!!!

Life is good. I love adventures! I love finding what I am made of!!!

Laura one of our Biggest Losers...

Hello Doug and Mary ,

Well, I know how much I worked my butt off this past week, more than the week before. And yet, I have only lost 2.4 lbs. And Jasper only lost 1.9 lbs. Hmmm...

I am breaking down and I'm going to do journaling this week and see if it makes a difference. I did not go out to eat at all last week, but maybe I was eating more than I realized. So it's come to food journaling.

I hate food journaling, but I hate being 219.2 lbs even more than food journaling. And I hate not being at my goal weight that I had set for myself by this time. I really wanted to be down to at least 211 by the end of the first month.

I really just can't wait to be below 200. I haven't seen that since my thyroid went haywire on me.

I don't even know what to say for Jasper. I know he's working hard at work and he's sweating multiple times on a daily basis. I'm just going to keep encouraging him. We are making a point to get out more and be more active. We went hiking up and down the bluff by his family's place on Sunday. It was a very fun time that consisted of lots of exercise. It felt good to actually not have to stop every few steps to catch my breath.

I'll talk to you in the morning!!


What I would like to say to her is....CELEBRATE any amount of weight loss!!! You are moving forward!!!!! Life is changing so embrace it! Journal your food for sure!!! It is the BEST way to lose weight!!!!

Go Laura and Jasper! Keep it up!

How can she go back with him?

I struggle with this so much! How can Rhianna go back with Chris Brown? Even if it is just to be on each others songs? Rumor is they are secretly back together! I just don't know how you can let a man do what he did to her before the Grammy's just a few years ago and then go back on one of his song's and say..."I love you baby!!!"

Not sure I will ever understand this.

Here is the story if you want to read further!

Losing weight is HARD!!!! But Biggest Loser Jennifer breaks through this week!!!!

Here is an email from Jennifer that really hit close to home!!! Thanks for sharing such private information!


I (jennifer) did not gain or lose. I know that is furstrating to hear, but concider this, I deal with depression and some times it last for days, which happned last week. usually during that time I have in the past eaten everything in my path, laid on the couch and refused to move, it is usually my diet destruction time. but this time. I was aware of what I was eaten, didn't go overboard, forced myself to workout, somewhat. this contest did help me through it and I thank you. so I didn't lose, but I didn't gain either and that is what I am happy for. On monday the 20th. you will be surprised, I have already lost some and hoping for more.

Linda lost 1 lb. she was dealing with weight from building muscle. trust me, she was extremely upset. so at the beginning of the previous week she had gained, but managed to loss what she gained and also the extra pound. she has her routine down now and she is also losing. so both of us cant wait to talk with you next week.

We have our sites on the guys, they are the ones to beat for now, haha, might do a little covert operation at the west side gym to see what they are doing.

talk to you soon.

Jennifer and Linda

Bronx Beat!!! These to CRACK me UP!

This fired people up!

I posted this photo on our 95.9 Kiss Fm Facebook page and WOW did people get fired up!!!! I am not sure how I feel about it. It is hard to look at but it is also hard to see kids get diabetes, asthma, and a million other problems form being over weight. I guess I would hope the Billboard will cause a stir (which it looks like it has) so that we can elicit a change!!!

Email from one of our Biggest Losers....

Thank you Laura for sharing this and you are SOOO not alone in these thoughts!

Here is her email:

Hello Doug and Mary,
Today not so good, mentally. I'm back to school this week. Today is my first day of full nursing classes for the semester. Yesterday, there was too much rough play on the play ground while my daughter was waiting for the bus and a kid broke her front adult tooth (approximately 3/4 of it).

She had to go to the dentist this morning and I was not able to be there for her because of my commitment to classes. To top off all the stress of the Nursing Semester starting up and my 7 year olds broken tooth, I'm PMSing.

All I want to do is get my Starbucks and a big Chocolate cake, get on my pj's, and sit in front of the tv and watch the bachelor while pigging out.

I never really realized how awkward that thought really is. Hmmm...I'm stressed so lets eat? Really? Instead of organizing better, holding my daughter, and taking some calming relaxing measures or midol? How does one get to the point of being so addicted to food.

I always justified it by saying " at least I'm not doing drugs or trying to drink my emotions away". But I am teaching my kids awful life lessons and I'm slowly killing myself.

So, instead, I pushed through. I got to school, had a good cry, and continued with my day and I'm doing much better now.

Talk to you again soon,
