GEOGRAPHY (Where I'd be on the map having started at my house in Salt Lake City, Utah, heading for Tokyo): Pacific Ocean (124 miles off the West coast. I am heading for the Hawaiian Islands)

I missed 2 days of biking due to travel and work. I did attempt to ride my bike yesterday morning to work, but found my bike with a serious flat tire in the morning. So I took it to the bike hospital. Oh well. My knees are very tired, so an extra long weekend of rest will be good.

I’ve been riding a 10-mile route to and from work and it is allowing me to get 20 miles in a day when I do the route. This coming week I will set a goal to get my first 100-mile week in! Riding this far really isn’t a big deal. Anyone in decent health can do it. I’ve discovered that taking a different route here and there really helps. It’s easy to get in a rut when you’ve used the same path over and over. Even if it’s just detouring and biking around a block you've never been to, it helps.

Most of the neighborhoods I bike through are pretty nice and I enjoy seeing what people have done with their yards and houses.

I didn’t lose any weight this week, in fact I gained a little. I think I didn’t hydrate very well yesterday, I haven’t eaten as good as I could, and I’ve had a busy work schedule this past week. I know what needs to be done to fix that.

Yesterday I had lunch with a couple of avid bikers. One had been in a pretty serious accident years ago, and another actually saw a biker get run over by a vehicle. The guy was killed instantly. As I listened to their stories, it was a good reminder that I, and all of you need to be safe while we’re out there biking. Accidents happen when we do something stupid, and that often happens when we’re in a hurry, or we’re taking risk. Remember, that your actions won’t just affect you…your actions will affect all your loved ones too. So when you make a decision to bike, wear a helmet, ride in bike lanes where available, and reduce the risk of riding where you can.

Also, do you know, or are you someone that would like to lose weight while biking? I have a fun project that I am going to roll out, and I need some victims. ;) Actually, I have a new website that will be rolling out soon. A portion of that website is going to allow others to participate on their own level. Will you please email me if you, or you know someone that wants to make a change in their life using a bike? This will be fun!

I must confess my sins…This week I ate a very large piece of pizza at midnight in Hollywood, CA. It was probably equal to 3 regular pieces. It’s a long story… However I also, went to the drive-thru at Original Tommy's Hamburgers in Hollywood, but DID NOT EAT ANYTHING! It’s the best burger joint in the world in my opinion! So that counts for something.

I was on the road for a day, and had busy schedule on Friday which both resulted in me not getting the best nutrition. I also, have noticed that I’ve taken on this attitude that I eating a little outside my plan is okay. Well, Maybe once I get all the weight off I can do that occasionally, and even now, but I have 120 more pounds to take off this bod, and eating healthy and exercising every day can do nothing but help me get to my goal quicker.

I did not eat here! 

I hope you liked the video I produced last week giving a quick look at the past 3 months. If didn’t see it you can see it HERE. I will be out shooting in the next week or two some more footage for the film. This is an important part of my story to Mount Fuji. Also, I will put up more fun video clips for you to watch.
