Week 7: Team Work Conquers All
Mandy explains why Craig's team won the challenge.
We are at the Aliso Viejo Sports Club and our first day out we are swimming. Everyone seems ready to lose weight.
The workout in the pool is good, but you really need to push yourself to bring up the intensity. The laps were tough for me, and the winner of the challenge got to have their own room. Stacy won, and the rest of us got our roommates. I roomed with Shay, and we got along great.
The next day we went to the Newport Aquatic Center and trained on the rowing machines then went into the water for a challenge. Jackie put the teams together, and she expected to blow us out of the water, but Craig taught us teamwork and we beat them by a nose.
We later went to dinner at a nice steak house, and Jackie ordered things we were not able to eat. At this point we were all tired and hungry and our tolerance was low. WE ALL got a bit agitated by the attempt to see if we would falter in the real world. Everyone held on strong and Nikki had some very stable words of wisdom. She seems to have worked on herself mentally while we all were so busy working on the physical. I think Nikki will now really kick up her weight loss.
