Have you ever had those times where you don't know where the time goes and never seem to have time to do anything. I think I'm living that just now. Thankfully I am making time to ride the motorcycle and that is keeping me sane but hmmm there are other stuff that needs a doing. I think this is part of my issue with continuing on my journey. It is just easier to go out and eat when I get home at 7pm. The problem with that is I don't loose weight and, as this morning showed, my stomach gets very unhappy with me.

I think I have to make a new rule for my life. While unexpected things happen and while out and about I will probably eat out, when at home I am limiting myself to eating out for dinner no more than 1 time a week. I am doing this in the hopes that I will stop myself some times and minimize the cost and maximize the weight loss.

Wish me luck.

More cycling goodness

Well we did more Motorcycling on Saturday. Instead of 300 miles in a weekend we did it all in one day. It was fun fun fun. We also met up with Jens sister for part of it. As a side note Lola has an injury (cracked headlight) but thankfully it looks to have been a minor flaw and is being covered under warranty and she will soon be good as new.

The route we took ended up being complicated to route so I am doing the out route followed by a map for our return home.

Here is out (NOTE: you have to view larger map as google refuses to show it in the little screen)

and here is the return

These are best estimations for the trip unfortunatly I am am not 100% sure but it is the general area *LOL*

Sunday we decided to do another form of 2 wheeled fun and took the mountain bikes to Rotary park. For the first time we did not take the repair kit and yup you guessed it, after 1 hour of riding it was called off due to a flat tire. We still had fun just it was cut short (man I have been of the cycles too long It felt HARD plus i am STILL having issues with the gears on my bike). As soon as I an I am going to have to take the bike in for gear work. I just wish they could fix this I am getting tired of it jumping every time I try to pedal.

EDIT: Mike joined us in Madison at Castle for most of the trip and thanks to his GPS he has sent me the route we took so I am editing the maps and you should now see an accurate representation of where we went. Thanks Mikey!!!!!


So I weighed Mmyself last week and I had went up to 250 WTH. I think college has me not caring about my weight and that's bad m'kay. This last week however I worked harder at watching what I eat and I weighed in at 246lbs. Its a step in the right direction but the damned 230s remain ever so elusive.

Official weigh in way at 8.30am and was 246lbs

Biking weekend

Ok this is a little late but we did our first rides on the motorcycle this weekend (Ok it was really last weekend but if this works right it will be dated the 8th *LOL*). Saturday we headed out and rode via Flealand in bowling green (really good indoor and outdoor flea market that I had been recommended for bike leathers and to which I ended up buying chaps, gloves and do-rags to complete my gear for the bike (pic to come soon hopefully), Once we left there we headed to mammoth cave and tried to meet up with Jens sister and her boyfriend (we failed to meet them unfortunatly) and stopped at the visitors center, had lunch and rode home. It took us 4 hours to get there 90 minutes to return *LOL*. AS Jen said I finally found my throttle *LOL*, for me I finally started to gain confidence.

Route as shown below (thanks google maps)

Mike stayed the night and we relaxed had some pizza and watched some movies. Since he was there Sunday we decided to ride some more *LOL*. Not as much Sunday as we all had stuff to get done. LBL and back.

Thoughts and updates

Ok I have had a bad month or more where I have not been focused at all on my weight and continuing my journey. I dunno why just haven't wanted to for some reason. I realised last night I have to give a damn. I WANT to get down more.

Weighed in this morning - 247lbs

Thankfully not to much damage but I need to focus. As part of my re focusing I have put all my foods in for the day (except dinner) at sparkpeople. This way I know what I am eating. Its also not easy just now in work. So far I have passed about 6 piles of help yourself candy and a tray of help yourself cupcakes. I have walked away from all. I hope to report next Monday a drop and that I am not just deluding myself again.

Peace out
