OMG – they let Melissa from the red team back in! Well she did win the challenge; good for her; but now the drama mamma is back!
Overall I was kinda disappointed in this weeks show. Sure folks are still losing weight but the heart strings just weren’t tugged at like normal. So I really don’t have much to comment on for Biggest Loser other than I really don’t see how Sam will loose much more weight to be able to compete – he’s getting so thin!
So other random thoughts… Go Buzz Aldrin! Dancing with the Stars oldest contestant. He’s an astronaut, suave dude that can’t dance worth spit; but LOVE his spunk!
Jillian Michaels (from Biggest Loser) tweets regarding people with kids challenges.
This challenge is SPECIFICALLY meant for those of you with kids. Get a sitter. Ask an extended family member to help out or watch the kids. I don’t care what you need to do… MAKE THE TIME! That is the point. That’s why it’s a challenge. NO EXCUSES!
Here’s a new challenge for you. For 24 hours put yourself totally and 100% first. Take time for yourself. Make doctors appointments. Hit the gym. Take a bubble bath. Do things you love. Buy yourself a small present. I want reports back!
OK seriously? For those people (self included) that do not have a strong support system nor the cash to afford a sitter for relaxing time… what do we do? How is that an excuse if you just don’t have the means? Get a stranger? Not going to happen. I think her heart is in the right place; but she’s really made quite a few people feel like crap because they realize something like the above just isn’t going to happen.
Obamacare: I guess it really doesn’t matter my opinion because it is law now. While I do not oppose helping those that need the help; I feel a few issues with it as it exists:
- Again we are throwing money at the result of a problem and not addressing the underlying problems that caused the issues/results in the first place.
- System is already broken for those with private health care; so now we will flood the slow system forcing those with private care to have to float out claims up to 6 months in some cases and absorb higher costs for the health care they are already receiving.
- Not enough physicians to see existing load of patients… now instead of getting in to the doctor within a week or a specialist within 3-6 months; it’s going to be even longer until the physician supply catches up to the new found demand via folks that now have healthcare.
I’m sure I have more to ramble about… but that’s my thoughts for today! Thanks for reading 🙂
