Weekly Bike/Workout Totals
This week represents the first full week back on the path per se. Since I got home from Japan, where I biked from Tokyo to Mount Fuji, then climbed Mount Fuji, I pretty much came to a grinding halt in my progress. Actually I not only stopped, but have slid backwards….stop…help!
I got a little discouraged initially, and then quickly realized that the person that stays down, loses. I am not staying down. I’m not proud that I’ve put much of my lost weight back on, but I do have the history, experience, and know how to get back up and get going. I know how I got it off, and know how I will be even more successful this time around.
In fact, I think it’s been a good thing to fall off the wagon, because this is a typical and normal thing to do. But again, I feel that this experience and the never-ending opportunity to move forward and improve is always there…and so I embrace it again. This whole story and experience is about real life. The story is not close to over!
I have decided for the time being to get back on the “slow-carb” way of eating with my “Free Day” on Saturdays. I did it this week. It has worked well for me in the past, and I can improve upon it by preparing my meals in advance and eating them like clockwork. I’ve had plenty of opportunities this week to dive into tempting foods, but I chose not to. This week I finally got the momentum going, which has made for a great week.
This week I am going to get on my bike and ride for at least 15 minutes a day on my indoor trainer. I know that’s not much, but it’s what I am putting out there. As far as eating, I will stick to my protein, veggies and beans. I am hoping to shed 2.5 pounds each week so that by March 29th I can be out of the “300 Club” again. I’m not getting stuck on the setback I’ve had ending up where I am. You’ve heard of spiritual repentance? Well, here’s some physical repentance! ;)
BTW, I have another blog that I am starting up for 2014 that I’ll let you know more about within the next month. It’s another exciting challenge that I’m putting myself up to…and I will also add, putting my brother up to. From the things I have learned, experienced and succeeded with 210Again, I want to throw some more positive energy and passion towards another aspect of my life. I’m not going to tell you what the challenge will be, but I think you will be intrigued by it. Stay tuned.
I’ll be in touch next week! Thank you for continuing to visit my blog despite the setback. But we are back on the “straight and narrow!”
Have a great week!
