Took the new bike out for it's maiden voyage this morning,
2.9 miles on the first ride,
I made it, and that is about all I can say.
Some light hills, but mostly, out of shape. I walked the last hundred yards back up the hill to my house.
I have been hiking quite a bit lately. Yesterday, I did about an 80 minute hike with some real hills. So that may have contributed to my flare out at the end.
But it's a start, and it didn't kill me. I figure I'll alternate days walking and bicycling for the first few weeks. To give things a chance adapt.
Down loaded Lose It yesterday. And set my first goal at 225 pounds. Thats a drop of twenty-five pounds. I was going to do the real goal, which is 185 pounds. But it seemed so far and un realistic. I thought it would be better to do it as a series of smaller more achievable steps.
I set my weight loss goals at a pound and a half a week.
