Well the swimming is completed, the walk/running is completed all that’s left is the bike. I HATE THE BIKE!!! It hurts, my feet go to sleep, my butt goes to sleep, my knee hurts…I just plain hate the bike. I have tried both types of bikes, the one like a normal bike and the one you get to lean back on, both are horrible. Oh I know I’m just complaining but I can’t help it, I HATE THE BIKE!!! But I’ll keep going, 60 miles left. I am going to try doing two 20 minute intervals instead of one 35 minute one. Maybe it’ll be better. I’ll break it up a little and see.
Food has been on track this week, well really close…exercise days I have to have just a tad more first thing in the morning but I work that off plus more. Today’s work out was 452 miles burned on the run, 278 on the bike and 326 on the weight circuit. I got at the gym at 7:30 and left at 9:45. You know, 4 months ago I would of never thought I would ever spend that much time at a gym. When I joined I figured an hour here or there would be plenty and at the time it was but now, I look at the next machine, the next machine and so on and think I had better get that one done today too, or and that one too. I am not entirely sure if I’ll quit for the summer or not. I really was planning on it cuz I don’t think there’s enough time in my week to be putting in the time I am right now but even if I go a couple times a week and get a good work out and then do my walking here when I’m done for the evening. I’ll have to think about it and see. I’m not under contract so can leave at any time but do I want too? Right now, nope!!
I have a question to pose for all of you. If you are a bike rider do your feet go to sleep (I’m talking the bike at the gym, not the real get out and go ones)? Mine do and so does the butt. Any suggestions? I rearrange my feet and butt all the time but still after 35 minutes on it my feet are tingling and my butt is numb. Maybe just cutting the ride into two different times will help. I’m hoping so.
That’s it, that’s my update for today. I snuck a peek at the scale…not a good thing right now with my TOM here, hopefully it’ll share some good news on Sunday morning. I’ve been on my weight loss journey for 14 months now, I’ve lost 48 lbs. I’m happy with my results. I do wish I could be like some and lose it all in a years time and then learn the maintenance part but I’m proud of where I am. About 3.5 lbs a month in the 14 months, it’s good. IT’S GREAT!!
Take care my friends and have a truly awesome afternoon and God Bless you all!!
