Bike Ride

Friday, November 26, 2010

My husband and I went on a bike ride today. The first time I've been on a bike in probably at least 5 years. The weather was perfect -- in the 50's, warm with just a little bit of coolness in the air. We rode for 4 miles. I was huffing and puffing at times. It was fun, but I do prefer walking. It is hard to talk while riding and I really didn't/couldn't observe the surrounding area as I was concentrating on cycling.

Fri 11/26

New Goals:

1) Blessings
I am blessed with the area where I live has nice trails for walking and biking.

2) Low carb diet started on 11-15-10.

3) Exercise Variation

4) 10,000 steps a day -- and I will make sure I get that each day except Sun which will be a rest day. - emoticon

5) 9+ glasses of water emoticon

6) Finally I don't want to gain at Thanksgiving!

Goals continued:

1. Stay within calorie limit -- emoticon - a little over -- I had a bowl of ice cream which I haven't done for over a couple of months. It was the last in the carton, so it is gone and no more temptation!

2. Daily exercise routine
-- Exercise before SP, then log it emoticon
-- knee physical therapy (3 times a week) --
--strength training a different set of muscles ea day emoticon -

3. Blog daily, even if it is short - emoticon

My original goal of reaching 229 by 11/20 seems unrealistic now since I have only lost 2.5 lbs this month. My new goal is 235 by 11/30.
9/25 = 242.5
10/2 = 241.75
10/12 = 240.5
10/19 = 239.75
11/2 = 240.
11/9 = 238.5
11/16 = 236.5
11/23 = 235.5

    Looking outside I have to laugh. Hubby is currently plowing a foot of snow and it is still falling. The phone keeps ringing with neighbors wanting him to plow them out too. Some are not happy with the price increase, but we have just not been able to break even let alone get a little for his hard work. He had to replace his truck this year and still hasn't found a mount for the plow so he is till using the Bronco.

    Hubby has been trying to come up with a bike for me for over a year. Just hasn't worked yet!

    I like your plan. I need to get back to using a pedometer and doing strength training. Good luck with your plan! emoticon emoticon

    You know I don't remember bike riding being so hard when I was a kid! I have to concentrate also or I'm all over the road! Glad you had a good time! Enjoy the weekend!
