Good way to start the day
Got the bike out about halfway through March as part of my plan to lose some weight and get in better shape. I have only been weighing myself about once a month because I don't want be obsessing about every little thing I eat since I am not on any diet to speak of. Simple plan, ride the bike, better food choices (chicken, fish, fruits, veggies and whole grains) and eat less of it (smaller portions). At my weigh in this morning I was pleasantly surprised to find I have broke the 20 lb barrier 22 to be exact. The benefits of the combination of biking and weight loss has increased my energy level, endurance and best of all my legs and feet feel better than they have for years. From 273 to 251 is a good start but hopefully just the start.
I get one week of vacation a year and I chose this week and it turns out to be the worst heat wave around here in years. Forecast for today is 102 and 104 tomorrow which would be the tenth day above 90, needless to say I have not been on the bike much. Of course the heats suppose to break Monday just in time to go back to work.
