For the month of March, I maintained a daily calorie average of approx 1,800 calories per day (with some higher and lower days). I did this for about 5 days a week and likely went up to 2,100 calories on the other 2 days. Aside from adding more steps into my daily activities, I didn't exercise too much. And I lost 13 pounds! Very happy.
We didn't cover a lot of miles, but I was breathing super hard while climbing that hill and went above my normal pace for the rest of the ride. 13 miles in one hour. I was glad to be back on the HUCC-B (my bike).
April will be an important month for me in this weight loss thing. I am within eyesight of a milestone number (I'll explain more when I get there). After a solid month of weight loss with almost NO exercise, I'd like to see how I do with more cycling (which burns more calories than walking anyway). I am also going to be doing a couple of major rides with friends this month.
As you can see by the listing on the right in yellow, I have not ridden at all since the beginning of March. So, this Clydesdale will be out on the streets, enjoying how it feels to be cycling with 13 fewer pounds on his frame.
