Apparently I am heading in the wrong direction! Yikes. I went out of town a couple of times over the past 2 weeks and that never helps. Plus, I have not been taking lunches to work, and have been eating out a lot. Also, it’s been doing some raining which prevented me from riding. I know what needs to happen this week.

This week I am going to simply set some goals that I need to consciously stay focused on. It will require me to create my game plan right here and right now.

Goal #1: I will take a lunch to work with me everyday this week. The food will consist of all natural food, i.e., chicken, tuna, veggies, and more veggies…and a little fruit.

Goal #2: I will prepare my meals on Sunday and Wednesday evenings for the coming week, and have them ready to go for the rest of the week.

Goal #3: I will ride my bike, doing the longer route to work, and home 4 times this week. I should be able to get 60 miles in this week. This will get me exercising for about 90 minutes every day.

Okay, those are my goals. I have written them down here…and will print them off and read them every day!

The weather is starting to change, and the evenings and mornings are getting colder. I know that Fall is here, and can offer some good opportunity for some nice bike riding. But it also creates a mindset that due to it getting colder, that you want to eat hardier, and stay in bed longer. I believe, if I approach every day consciously, with a plan, then this will be key.

This isn’t easy to look out on the long rode ahead. It’s very disheartening, but the longer I stay on the road, the easier it will get, and the more progress I will see!

Have a great week! I look forward to reporting results next Saturday!

Drop me a line, and let me know if you have any advice

This week got off to a great start…then I got sick. My wife and daughter have been sick and they kindly gave it to me. Good Ole Cold.

I took 3 days off work and tried to rest. I missed getting on my bike, but felt week, and knew I’d probably over-do it. Oh well at least I got on the bike.

Lets see if I can get some good miles in this week, and try and eat better.

This is a short entry. I will continue to check in.

Have a great week!
