Happy Monday! Sorry for the overall lack of post quantity last week. I spent the weekend camping with my parents in Duluth. The trip involved a nice, leisurely 14 mile bike ride and a little too much eating. I wasn't capable of controlling myself the way I'd like to, but at one point, my brother said, "Do you need that?"
Let's get down to business.
Three pounds! Alright! I'm keeping the train moving. Good job, Liza, with a guess of 246.9. I'm happy to say I came in way under the lowest guess. This was also a huge milestone: I'm half way to my goal! I've lost 50.4 pounds in 9 months. I'm not quite on track for 100 pounds in a year, but I'm not going to let that stand in the way of getting what I want.
I think the biking to work is paying off. If you haven't tried it, I'd suggest biking for exercise. I've added 20 minutes to my commute (both ways) but added 80 minutes of cardio to my day.
It is tricky though. Since I started biking, I've felt bullet proof. I feel like I can eat anything I want and be just fine. I know that's not true and a very dangerous mentality to have, so I've got to be vigilant. I'll be focusing on putting more fruits and vegetables into my diet. I'm eating salads for lunch this week.
The other thing that's been happening since I started biking to work is I'm hungry all the time. Seriously, all the time. I'm trying to resist, but it doesn't always work out.
I'm not always going to do this perfectly, but I'm going to do more good than harm. 100 pounds lost, here I come.
