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
