Okay - I admit it, originally I was going to blog all about my weight loss/getting fit experiences. And I admit, I've been incredibly lax about doing this (you see that picture next to procrastination in the dictionary? Well that's me).
Anyway, so here I am. Ready to tell you what I've been up to. Let's see, in a mad dash recap, I'm down 82 pounds from my all time high. I had a major stall from August (when I put 10 pounds on) until March (when I finally started to take it off), and now I'm in new territory. I switched Weight Watchers plans from Core to Flex, so now I weigh and measure everything. The shake up has worked and really helped me to see how large my portions had gotten yet again.
Over the winter, Chris bought us a trainer for our bikes (a little gizmo that sits in my bedroom into which I slide the back wheel of my bike). It let me ride through the winter on my old, heavy, bent-frame Miyata. Chris wanted me to get a new bike but I wouldn't until I convinced me that I was committed to riding. After completing a 25-mile ride in early March (or was it February), on my Giant Comfy, I decided it was time to upgrade.
So we visited our LBS (apparently cool bike speak for local bike shop), Halter's Cycles and got my Cannondale.
Pretty spiffy, huh? Anyway, since I first started riding it in April, I've put over 550 miles on it. If all goes well, I'll be close to 2,000 miles by the end of the summer.
