    Janelle Brown: Smarter Than Your Average Brown (Maybe)

    Ok, any guesses as to when Janelle is going to complain about the recent record snowfall versus striving to find a way to enjoy it (and get some exercise)? Let's see, struggling to get motivated, looking for the yoga mat, can't quite bring herself out of this disruption of snow. Try shoveling. It's a great workout.

    S10:04 Kody's Shocking Move

    Sadly, yeah. Instead of striving to find the opportunity to get some exercise in the snow, she is likely to complain about being stuck inside. Whereupon she will then lament about struggling to get motivated or some shit like that.
  3. Right? That's "wellness"? She certainly doesn't appear well. Compare that with how she used to look--cute, not sick and not looking like a bad-skinned vampire who hasn't fed lately.

    S10:04 Kody's Shocking Move

    Unless you love winter activities. The Snow Bowl isn't Vail, but with this new snowfall it's a winter paradise. And let's not forget snowshoeing and Cross-Country skiing (even throughout town there are networks of trails). If you live outside town and there's enough land, you don't even have to go anywhere to do these things. Just throw on your snow pants and snowshoes and go for it. That's the best thing about Flag--no matter the season there's always something fun to do that's close by.

    Huh? Her entire life is a "disruption", full of excuses as to why her train has derailed from the wellness tracks. Shitfuckballs Janelle, construct new tracks or something because you're a disgrace of a "health coach". No one wants to hear your excuses, they want to learn from your success you idiot.

    S10:04 Kody's Shocking Move

    Flagstaff is more expensive, true. But the vibe and way of life there is a fair trade-off for the traffic hell, summer heat hell, crappy schools and the overall angry, cut-throat vibe in Las Vegas (having lived in both places, just my take).

    Perhaps that's why the move. It's going to end eventually, maybe they have a season or so left with the move and the adjustment but after that, what is there to cover? Sometimes we like to paint the Browns as being kinda dumb, but I don't think they're clueless. If they're making good money from the show which they've been doing for nearly 10 years, they've got to have a place and a plan for that money. They know the train is coming to the end of the line. Kody wanted a quieter, cooler place to settle in and Flag isn't a bad choice. They've got the funds for homes and are securing themselves for after the show. "We've got the money, let's get out while we can." When their homes sell--and eventually they will--it'll be even better for them. As for the small businesses amongst the wives, Meri seems to be the only one doing well, but who knows for how long with the LLNo. I mocked her for buying the B&B, but it seems to be a decent back-up plan. I may not like Meri's personality, but she's done well for herself business-wise.
  8. I don't get why she does this. Why go back just to make it "a little higher" than last time and more importantly, why advertise it? Does she think the world is going to be impressed by her panting after just a couple steps? This is what toddlers and children do: "Mom, look. LOOK. MOM!"--every time they jump in the pool or learn a new trick. If she wants to show she can do it, she needs to quietly work on it, become proficient and make it to the damn top of the wall--then put it on IG (that would likely require her losing at least 100 lb, however). These "baby steps" are just that--for babies.

    * OMG this. I'm about to head out on my run and haven't had a bite, partly for this reason. For races, about 3 hours pre-race I'll do a coffee-clean-out and have a mashed banana and that's it. Some runners use anti-poo pills but I'd rather be cleaned out entirely before starting. * I remember saying "what the fuck you're so full of shit" when she said she "doesn't eat enough". Obviously, SHE DOES and then some. Denial. Complete, utter denial.

    Oh nice! I was YOSAR (still have the shirts!) and my duty station was LYV. We didn’t have many super-large patients as it was too hard for them to make it past Vernal Fall. Mostly we’d get called down to assist when they’d pass out on the Mist trail. Sure hope Whit doesn’t take a vacay there any time soon. We don’t want her attempting that “challenge”—plus I can only imagine her bellowing and shrieking her way past the waterfall in fear. I really cannot wait to see the Alaska episode. I love watching unprepared people make dumb mistakes out of my response area (sorry not sorry).

    Depends on the person, there's no "one way" for all. Intermittent fasting has been shown to work very well for people who don't mind feeling hungry, who have no health problems are not prone to binging when it is time to eat. If one is constantly putting fuel (mainly carbs) in one's body, it's harder to burn fat stores. Some runners in my circle do certain workouts on can empty stomach in order to burn through stored fuels and get to fat stores (to drop to race weight). They then eat strategically in late afternoon/evening--lean protein, complex carb, veggies. They're very lean so I'd say it's working for them. There's nothing wrong with eating in the evening if one is sensible about it, but I recall Jessica saying Whitney will run to french fries if she has not planned out her nutrition. Go figure, Whitney "not prepared". So for her, this might not be the best idea and eating more often will keep her from feeling hungry.
  12. I don't think we'll ever know. If I had to ask Whitney one question, this would be it. It's a constant trend with her--a couple weeks before an event and she thinks she can do what needs done in that time. THAT, Whitney, is the time most trained athletes are tapering. Shoulda done the hard work months ahead of time. The fact that she does not recognize or acknowledge this is baffling. Everything is last-minute with her, then she acts surprised when it's hard. Jessica's reaction to learning how soon Whitney's trip was and that there was practically NO TIME to get her trained up for it was a gem. Whitney's done NOTHING to prepare herself for this. Jessica has got to be frustrated with Whitney.

    * In her defense--giving credit where it's due--she has gone from 380 to the 330s. What bugs me as that she acts like she does not care (I think she does) and who knows where she's at currently. Let's hope she is motivated by being able to do more at a lesser weight versus focusing on her appearance. * It never fails to shock me how dumb she acts. "What's altitude". Really? Or when she says, "If I had knows how hard.......(insert activity) would be, I never would have done this." Especially with the rock climbing, how could she think for one second that would be a doable activity for a 330-ish lb person? As a side note, Jessica is adorable and seems genuine. She's gotta be doing this just for the show.

    Omg the huffing and puffing and grunting drives me crazy. I felt for her guide, it’s annoying when we advise inexperienced hikers and they don’t listen to us. Why hire or bring an expert you’re unwilling to listen to? Do it by your damn self then!

    Season 10 Spoilers, Speculation and Social Media

    The metropolitan area is growing, especially Henderson. Traffic has become a snarled mess, the schools suck, there's crime even in the better neighborhoods and the vibe of the city is........pissy. It's changed significantly just in the 10 years we've been in the area and not for the better. The wives said they felt more acceptance in Vegas but really, people are so busy with their own lives they don't have time to give a crap. For all the reasons above plus more, I don't blame Kody for wanting out of that hell-hole.
