The Biggest Loser Resort - The Sparkly Queen Arrives!

So here I am in lovely Malibu, CA!  The moment I stepped off of the plane, I knew I was going to love the weather and the views.
View off of the plane.
It was, however, an incredibly long day of travel w/ 5 hours on the plane then an hour on a shuttle, but I have finally stepped foot on the grounds of the Biggest Loser Resort.  As soon as I arrived I signed a "It's not our fault if we kill you" document, had my weight, measurements, and BMI taken, then was escorted to my room.  That's right...escorted.  They helped me with my luggage, showed me to my little cabin, and walked me through the use of the air etc.  Here are some pics of my super cute little room.
Here's where the magic happens...and by magic I mean the God-given gift of sleep!

It's a shower, but I love the blue shower curtain.

OMG it's a TV!  I do not have one of these at home.

Here is my front porch and door.
 We had dinner (Tamales) at 5:30 followed by orientation where we learned things like...
1. No caffeine allowed
2. No cell phones outside of your room
3. Lights out at 10pm
4. Luscious robes available at the front desk 

On the way back to my room, I took a little tour of the grounds and snapped some quick pics. 
Hot Tub

Exercise Pool

The building on the left is the gym and the one on the right is the aerobics room.

I can't lie...I am totally overwhelmed and freakin' out right now.  It's scary thinking about making a change this big.  I mean, on the plane I was kicking myself for not packing last minute chocolaty snacks before the deprivation began.  This is not a healthy mindset...not at all.  I will just take it one day at a time...OK, maybe one step at a time.
