Well The Husband and I do and I have oh, so many thoughts on it... I just don't know where to begin. Oh yes, I do...Mandi! I have very mixed feelings about Mandi...
So if you watch the show, you know that Mandi won 24 hours with her husband ON the ranch. Evidently that's a big deal because usually the person has to go home to see family and that puts them behind. They also surprised her and brought her two little boys out to see her too. It was heart-wrenching. I don't know about most of you moms out there but I could never...would never leave The Son to go on a TV show. I know she's overweight, unhealthy and this show could "save her life" but still, she seems to me like the kind of person who is not THAT overweight who could do it at home if she really wanted to. Yes, I'm being judgemental and I don't like to be that way but watching her little boys sob and cry when they had to leave just seemed so mean and selfish to me, maybe they shouldn't have even let them go back to see her. Actually, maybe the selfish ones are the producers of the show who wanted to add a little more drama...I don't know but I do know that it's been bothering me since I saw it last night. All that being said, I do like Mandi and want her and her sister to do well, it just hurts my heart to even think about leaving The Son for any length of time.
Another thing I wonder about is... how the heck to they exercise as much as they do? I've been on a quest to lose weight and get healthy again and I work out six days a week, five of those days about two hours a day. Let me tell you...I am tired! And Sore! Yesterday I ran 5K on the treadmill (well, it was more like runking... a run/walk combo but I did DO it) and I was exhausted after that and all my free weights. How are they functioning after days and days of constant exercise? I don't think I could move and I consider myself to be in pretty good shape, I'm certainly no where near the weight of some of the contestants. I will say, when I feel tired at the gym, I think of them and push myself to finish my measly little two hour work out! ha ha!
And my last comment about TBL, for today at least is...why do they make the women stand there in that hideous sports bra the entire time while the men get to wear a t-shirt and take it off just for the weighing? It's not fair. I think the women should be allowed to put a t-shirt on after the weighing too. It's awful and not attractive at all. I feel bad for them every time I see it.
Well, a very insightful post for today, don't you think. ;) It's Wednesday which is my very busy day so I need to get moving. I'll be saying goodbye for now! Have a good one.
