Sunday Weigh In


I went from last week's 178.4lbs to 176.8 ... a loss of 1.6lbs! YAY! Last week I had gained a pound from 177.4 up to 178.4 so over the last 2 weeks I am down just a little over half a pound... but a loss is a loss ya know?!

Yesterday I went over to the gym and rode the recumbent bike 12miles in 46mins and 45secs...
SHAPE said it was a 1 hour bike ride day but I really did not feel like doing a full hour! On my way in I saw posters for this race where you have to bike 10 miles, run 3 miles and swim 350yards.... so I decided to see how long it would take me to bike 10 miles.... in all fairness I should have been on an upright bike... I will have to try timing again on the right bike, but I did the 10 miles in 38:08 which I was really proud of... I decided to do another 2 miles at a slower pace to get some extra time in.... it was really easy to get through this time... i think it was because I was focused on the distance not the time... I mean, I was trying to get through the 10 miles fast, but focusing on how far I had gone and now how long I had been riding made things breeze by...

Overall I feel really great... I still am not a huge fan of exercising.... but I feel better about my body in general...

And I think I lost another 1/2 inch off my waist... down to 31.5 inches... I will post updates on my measurements next weekend!

Thanks for reading guys!
