Total Loss since 3/1/10: 36 pounds (my lowest since I started this project!).
Today, I'm feeling: Happy with my loss, despite a tough week.
Here's what happened last week:
I worked out only twice and had a long work week with excessive hours. My eating was great, despite the strain of the work and the travel. This coming week will be much better due to workload, family schedule, etc.
My Goals for this Week:
• Continue to pursue goal of 275 weight by September 6th for Mrs. Clyde's iTouchallenge!
• Short-term goal is to be at 285 by 7/31...four pounds in two weeks should be easy, if I stay focused.
• Cardio will be walking/running/cycling for at least 5 days this week.
• Maintain about 1,700 daily calories of good healthy food.
What about the Unnecessary Bike Purchase?(On a side note, my friend, GuinneMick, knows nothing about bikes, but kept calling this a "pedophile-bike" or a "Pee-Wee Herman" bike.) He just doesn't get it.
I am bummed because this was going to be my "fun" bike...my cool bike that looked vintage and retro, but rode beautifully. This bike caused me to do some research and learn about Electra Bikes. I was going to (kinda) fix it up, very much clean it up, and love it. All for $75 (with upgrades soon to follow). In a strange and obsessive way, I feel like someone stole "my" bike.I LOVE that you guys jumped in and gave me your feedback about the bike. Thanks for helping me out with great feedback and advice. Someday, I'll find another fun project bike. For now, I'll get back to focusing on my goals and enjoying my normal bike.
Keep moving, everyone!
