Arrived at Fitness Ridge ... Orientation
Okay ... today was the exciting day. I'm here at Fitness Ridge! I got here around noon along with several other ladies. We got our room assignments and I unpacked. Went back up to meet the other ladies that arrived with me and we all sat and got to know one another while eating an apple. We didn't get lunch only dinner at 5:30 (Sundays for the new arrivals don't get lunch). We got a tour of the facility and our booklets to help us during our stay. After dinner, we had our orientation where we got to meet everyone. There are 64 people here ... the largest class they've ever had here at FR! And, one of them ... wait for it ... wait for it ... yup, Tara Costa from the Green Team from the Biggest Loser! I'm excited to see her here! Yeah! And, my roommate is from Tampa Florida which makes me feel good too. She is retired military and has 3 kids. Everything is all good so far. But, our day starts at 6:00 am with a mandatory circuit workout followed by a 7:00 breakfast ... then an 8:00 MANDATORY hike! It's 4.5 miles up (1000 feet elevation) and 4.5 miles down. Fun! More tomorrow!
