ADVENTURE BY BIKE®

Salsa’s Biggest Loser

Monday, the battle is on...

Bobby the Shrek, Big Steve Johnson, Kid, Tiger Tim, and E-Fred (who really doesn't stand a chance) are beginning the first ever (and hopefully last)...Salsa's Biggest Loser Competition.

Our first weigh-in happens Monday morning. We will record our current fighting weight.

Each Monday we will re-weigh ourselves and calculate our percentage lost in body weight. Or percentage gain in body weight should things go terribly array.

With a brand new Salsa complete bike of our choice on the line (right Jason?), we've got a lot to lose (no pun intended).

Thus, we will begin our training for the competition by beefing up. Some of us are willing to share some of our secret beefing up strategies.

Bobby the Shrek: One gallon of Cookie Dough ice cream. Inhaled.

E-Fred: Whole milk. Lots of it. Then more whole milk.

Big Steve Johnson: Famous Dave's and Tater Tot Hot Dish. In alternating fork fulls.

Kid: Booze. Lots of it. Oh, just kidding kids...I might resort to three or four pounds of Summer Sausage.

Tim: You will learn none of my secrets. Mwaaa hwaaa hwaaaa!

There it is folks. Play along at home if you like and post your results via our Comments device.

Weight must be taken in your boxers, skivies, or tighty whities only. You don't need to tell us what you weigh. Just the percentage of body weight lost.

Game on.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Mike Riemer

I love being outside. I prefer to ride on dirt. Or snow. If I was born a hundred years earlier I might have been a polar explorer. There's a great natural world out there to see, smell, taste, listen to, and experience. Life slows down out there and the distractions we've created will disappear if you let them. Give me a backpack and let me go.

They didn’t let me into the contest.  Oh well, that way I’m only accountable to myself.

I’d be more than happy to help you guys out in your contest.  I am a proud owner of a Mamasita put together by the guys here at Decorah Bicycles in Decorah, IA.  I love the bike and I love the service that you guys showed me a couple of years back at the Big Wheel Ballyhoo.  It was because of your interaction with me and my family that I decided that I would buy nothing other than a Salsa bike.  <BR><BR>To let you all know, I am in the fitness industry and work with a company that produces at-home workout programs that you have probably heard of (P90X, Turbo Jam, etc) and I help people use the programs to get the most success possible.  I would be happy to do the same for you to return the favor.  Nevertheless, whatever you do, I commend you for taking on a contest like this to get healthy.  You won’t ever regret it.  Plus, it’s a heck of a lot easier to ride the trails hard when you are in better shape.  Take care and feel free to contact me.<BR><BR>Robert Hudgens<BR>Independent Coach for Beachbody<BR>robert@getfitandwin.com
