Well, I'm back ladies and gentlemen.
I lurk here all the time but do not post alot.
Here is what is going on.
I've finally realized that weights and loosing weight don't mix.
I've got to loose about or more than 100 lbs. I'm sure I'm over 400 right now.
I've been riding the past two weeks religiously on my stationary bike doing endurance 1 hour rides in the morning and interval training in the afternoon.
I only hit the gym 2 times a week now. Just to maintain. The long and the short of it is I got myself in bad out of shape and had some really bad back problems stemming from last summer. Not making any excuses but it did not stop me from eating, and was not exercising on a normal basis like now.
Now Everything I eat is in serving sizes. I don't regulate myself to typical diet foods. Just no junk (ie chips and desserts) but normal foods but eat 1 serving and not an Andre the giant serving. 1 serving. That is it. It has been going good so far. felt like I've lost some weight but still had to realize that I needed more burn to get some results.
Just wanted to get back in here wear there were other riders.
I just had to go get a comfort seat because I want to spend more time on the bike and not have my lower extremities to go numb after being on the bike for to long.
One question though. Last year I changed my tires on my bike to Larger road tires from the MTB tires that were on the bike. Recommended by the LBS..... Thing is I seem to always blowing spokes.... That is what happened last year and I got fed up and that is one of the reasons I stopped riding is I did not want to continue to paying to fix spokes. Is this just a fat ass issue on my part or do I need to get some other type of rear wheel or something.
here is a pic of my bike any suggestions are welcome. The bike is a specialized Hardrock
