From Karen: So, today I walked into Push with a positive attitude and then was notified that while looking at the board … I am in last place in this contest. Hard to believe that working so hard I am in last place. I need to tell everyone that is following this adventure, I am truly doing 100% of everything I am asked to do — the diet, the workouts, everything and it just is what it is. Someone at the end will come in last place and as much as I hope its not ME, it will be someone. With that said, Tony strapped on the weight vest and the workout continued. Not for punishment in any way, but for a harder training session. I admit I DO NOT like the vest. Between the vest and the ball I was carrying, it totaled about 25lbs and it made me deep down inside MAD. What was I mad about? When I walked into Push at the start of this adventure, I was just about 25lbs heavier than I am today. I just kept telling myself, “you deserve to feel this, this is the old you, the person you walked around with everyday, the weight I was just a short time ago” And now today I am using that weight for a better workout. Karen…I am proud of you…I am proud of every day, even being in last place. I am proud of all you have done and all you are going to do before the end of this adventure. Thanks fellow losers for your support and Tony, Mark, and the Push crew… I am going to fight till the end and do my best.
