You gotta get your burn, and the Others return to the Ranch

1 Feb

Dear Team Purple:

No, I'm not offereing free advertising so you'll send me there, nope, not all.

So after weeks of pitching the “others” over at the Malibu Fitness Ridge, we get to see the trainers who train the others, Cara, a New Yorker, sounding a bit Rosie Perez-esq and Brett who is easy on the eyes, but clearly no Bob Harper. The two trainers were certainly nothing to hold as a mystery for all this time, NBC. They’re not ex Biggest Loser trainers, not famous Ex Biggest Loser contestants, or any other famous people. They were just, you know…trainers.

So having met the trainers, we get to see more of their training style, which seems to consist of rope juggling, calisthenics, and boxing training….interesting, but nothing we haven’t seen Bob and Jillian do in the past really. Again, why the secret? Were they kept under wraps in the hopes that Cara would learn better make-up tips before you reveal her to the world? (Yes, I went there, I am sorry, even I know too much under eye cover-up is a bad move). Or was it to cerate drama? Well, we all know the answer and drama shmama, I’m moving on.

But before moving on, we have to watch the others train some. Apparently, Q from the red team is annoyed that sitting around and cheering on his teammates while they box, is not “getting him his burn.” Q walks away to try and find some more exercises to go through. While I can’t blame him for not wanting to stand around and watch others exercise, instead of getting his “burn” perhaps he shouldn’t have handled his annoyance with the teamwork/cheering each other on, training session that Cara was employing that day so childishly, but enough about the others. Bad attitudes and make-up, I’m bored.

Back at the ranch (yes, I get to write it out this week) we see all of Team Billian’s folks working it. Bob takes out some folks, mainly Dan or is it Don, whomever of the 2 is remaining, Jesse and some others to run his circuit. They are pushing it hard and not taking names.

Next we go into the gym to see more of Team Jillian, including you ladies, TEAM PURPLE! Jillian describes a little of the fear she sees in Hannah as she does certain back exercises and we hear a little bit about, you Hannah and who you were in the earlier 90’s. God Bless the 90’s. Thankfully, you didn’t have the big hair like I did and you were instead, a cute, smily thing who rocked at volley ball. They showed us several of your awesome serving shots and a magazine page with your picture. You explained your story of the accident and how your disks in your back were in pieces. Sooo sad. Several of my new Twitter friends agreed while watching this show and said that they really empathized with you and your struggle with weight loss post a serious injury. Luckily…..JILLIAN TO THE RESCUE.

Totally NOT Hannah but shows another awesome backbend. A way cute kid though, right?

Jillian, having recognized your struggles, sees that she has to show you that you are strong and your body is healed. And in a move that any simple grade schooler can do, she changed your life. I love it. In tears we all tweet how proud we are of you and your back bend. We see it in Olivia’s appreciative smile to Jillian and the tears in her eyes. It shows how much this means to you and to her. AMAZING. With that, I could turn off the show for the week. I am done! Continue reading

Sometimes your friends are big ole losers, I mean for real

18 Jan

Dear Team Purple:

Remember how last week we had everything posted, before the day that Biggest Loser aired, and we shared with you our initial thoughts of our first true biggest loser watching experience? We discussed Bob’s hotness, posted pics of him shirtless and decided that the BL would be our LOST replacement. Well this week, both Jane and Lula, got behind on our snarky recap of the biggest loser season eleven and the epicness of the awesome Team Purple commentary. Hence, we’re both Losers, but not in the cool Team Purple sort of way. We’re losers cause we failed to blog earlier.

If you’re looking for an awesome and fun recap of the show last week, I found this great recap, on PhillyBurbs.com, which includes clever little bloggy awards for some of the teams and individual contestants. Not only does the author Jen Wielgus, have one of the first pics in the post contain Hannah from Team Purple, but the post also bequests the “Abbott and Costello Award” to Team Purple due to their comedic quips. Bless it.

Despite the fact that we are bloggy fail and big losers (of the wrong kind), in this week’s letter we decided to let you know what the Team Purple Team (does that even make sense?) was up to all week, while they weren’t writing your letter.

1)    The @DearTeamPurple Twitter made friends with folks while the show aired (holla @FitBottomedGirl & @theBLblog!)

2)  A Mr. Bob Haper tweeted to the @DearTeamPurple . Yes, yes he did!

  3) We got all excited when this blog got a comment from Mama Curlee, herself.

  4)  Jane recovered from a massive sinus infection that had her looking like a zombie.

I may not have looked this bad, but I felt this bad.

 5) We missed you bunches and bunches.

6) We had a weekly chat where Jane used the MyFitnessPal app on her Droid Phone, to scan a vodka UPC label in order to count all her calories. (PS it worked).

7)  We watched the Golden Globes where we all agreed you and #HotBob should have been in attendance and this boy, called Ron was there too.

8)  Jane lost 3 lbs this week! Cause there’s nothing like an illness to keep you on track with your dieting.

9)  We remembered to blog before the next show aired! #GOUS

As you can see we weren’t just sitting around staring at the wall all week. We did do some stuff. Who are we kidding? We’re BIG LAME LOSERS!

Trying To Be Less Big Losers this Week,                                                                                           Lula and Jane
