Journey of a Weight Loss Resort Intern

February 24, 2014 By: consultant 75 Comments

1/29/14- Hey y’all my name is Alyssa and I am one of the two fitness interns at the weight loss resort, Shane Diet & Fitness Resorts in San Antonio! This internship is required to finish up my bachelors degree in Sports and Exercise Science at the University of Northern Colorado. Previously I have worked in the medical field as and EMT and as a volunteer firefighter, all while finishing up school and trying to have a social life. My social life in my last semester of college consisted of working with a football team in Kersey, Colorado where they took the 2A Championship and I earned the title of coach medic. Not only did those boys teach me a lot about fitness but they taught me what working hard can really get you.

Finding an internship was no small task, I sent out over 100 resumes and heard back from the one that I was most interested in first, Shane Diet & Fitness Resorts. I was stoked to get the email back. My now boss Debbie and I set up a Skype call that lasted for about two hours in total, I was thrilled! Then I set up two more calls with the owner of Shane and Jackie who runs the New York weight loss resort. After some fantastic conversations and many questions exchanged I was told I had received my internship at Shane. I am blessed with the opportunity to come to Shane and work with clients who are ready to change their lives.

So now on to the hard stuff, after an injury and extensive rehab I am still not back to the weight I want to be, fitness and being healthy is huge in my life yet my body does not show it. Carrie (the other intern on a journey) and I were both tasked to come up with blog topics, so with the help of some previous clients and the idea of motivating clients, both previous and potential, we decided on taking the Shane journey ourselves, all while going home every night to temptations and trails to inhibit both of our goals.

So as Carrie would say, Challenge ACCEPTED!

These are my starting measurements

Weight: 203lbs
Height: 5’10”
Neck: 14.5
Chest: 49.5
Abdomen (U): 36.5
Abdomen (L): 39
Hips: 45
Thigh: 25.25
Bicep: 15

Long term goal: To get to a figure athlete’s body figure

Short term goal: To gain back healthy habits all while trimming inches off of those unmentionable places!

1/31/14- Shane Challenge Explained

Unlike most of the guests at Shane I will not being jumping into the program with full force, instead I will get to go home every night to the temptations, have days off and be running around getting intern duties done and classes prepped. I will be following the 1,500 calorie diet, as closely as I possibly can, and working out as often as work allows me. Sounds familiar right?!? The Shane experience I will be putting myself through is one that has been expressed by many clients as the hardest one of all, GOING HOME! Duhn Duhn Duhn.

Doesn’t sound all that daunting right? Well I am here to give you the details of my journey, what I do while I am at work, what my pedometer says, what meals were my favorite, the different temptations during the day and how I chose to overcome them, if I was able to overcome all of the temptations etc.

Today is one, so far I work out, got some work done, dealt with the dogs, they will be explained in further blog topics, and got to work on time, at 12 pm, with my hair still wet! Great start to the first day!! Oh I had coffee and a bowl of cereal for breakfast, sorry Amber!

2/3/14- First day of Nutrition Logging

So this morning I woke up, after a fun night of football (not so much) and a crazy dog incident (gotta love those guys) I decided to take the day while the sun was still in bed and so were the birds. Got the dogs all taken care of with a few tangled leashes, a few curse words and some tripping we all managed to get back into the house safely. Bowls were filled and jowls getting in the way of teeth is the way their typical morning goes, mine on the other hand took a twist. I decided to make breakfast. Looking into what I had normally had for breakfast I thought this would be easy! Until I opened that black abyss, the one that shines so bright and sends false hope to those looking inside, also known as the refrigerator. Daunting task sat ahead, what to make?!? I settled for 3 large eggs, 4 pieces of turkey bacon and a chiobani yogurt for a total of 420 calories go me!
