I started packing on the pounds again so I told myself it's time to eat better and get back on the bike. I've been shopping for a little while and finally chose a bike and got back on last night. Man, am I out of shape. I put 1.84 miles on last night and my legs were wiped and my lungs were burning at only a 13.5 mile pace. I know I've got to get the first 20 rides or so under my belt again and I'll be good but it was so frustrating to get out and know what I've given up over not being on the bike over the past 2 years or so.
Weight was 293.6 this morning, my goal is to get down around 250, I don't have a time frame to do it, but at 6'5" and a large frame I feel like that will be an ideal weight for me. I've also stayed strict to a 1990 calorie diet and cut out all sodas and junk food over the last ten days or so, netting me about a 6 pound loss in that time. It's amazing what a simple diet change will do for you.
Here's the new bike. All-City Macho Man.
