Ok School is out for summer. Time to get myself back in shape and get myself riding again.

Its been a harsh 6-7 months. I just have not been motivated to do much. Don't ask me why I just don't know. Hell I think I still have motivational issues but I got to get past them.

I weighed myself midweek and I'm up to 255 lbs. UNACCEPTABLE

Today is my first attempt at drawing the line and saying enough. I have tracked my food intake today (approx 1000 cals) so far and hope to keep food at or below 2000 cals. My goal is to get back to 1500 - 1700 cals a day. I also took today to walk down to visit Jen at work, thankfully will power was there and I did not get ice-cream from the store next to her work (Scott I'm looking at you). So in theory I have burned some cals.

My next task in hand is to get back on the bike. I may not be able to get out and ride for the next few days due to commitments and crappy weather this weekend but I want to try set up the trainer and get 10-15 miles in. I think I have figured out why I didn't over the winter months (apart from the motivation) and will try the mods to see. I have also purchased an app (shock horror me spend when there are free apps) for my phone to track distance speed, mapping and altitude to try to improve my output on here and give me a 2nd source for stats.

Another task is to get to the Gym. I am paying for a membership that is not used. (cant get out of it *LOL* damned 1 yr contracts) I need to use it and get the strength training started. My final goal for the season is to ride the Clarksville Sunrise Century in September. IT will probably be my first century but I think it is the most logical (it is one of the flattest).

Hopefully updates will be forthcoming. Talk to you soon


  1. I start the week on Sundays with weights, go to cardio on Mondays and then promptly find better stuff to do on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays...

    I am 230 now. My goal is 225 by Tuesday so I am going to try going tonight thru Monday. I have to drive to Atlanta on Tuesday and would like to fit nicely into my 36 inch pants for my work meeting.

    If I can make it to 227 I am out of the obese category and into the overweight!

  2. Oh, if you see me at the gym, please don't ask me to go out to dinner. I have been very successful on a pretty strict protein shake diet over the last 2 weeks. I loose 0.75 to 2 pounds a day while still feeling full. My last day on the diet will be Tuesday.

  3. My goal is to be not eating out. so you dont need to worry there. When I get back to Gym I will not be killing it with sodium rich foodstuffs that allow the retention of water and will hinder my century goal.
