Focus; It's An Amazing Thing

Source: via Jenna on Pinterest

Good morning my friends! I started this morning by going on a bike ride. Usually I just ride around the lakes but I've been trying to go farther. Today, I put my bike seat up a lot higher (hubby and I were talking about that yesterday) and wow what a difference! I went all around the area where I live and around the lakes too and ended up riding over seven miles. And I wasn't even tired. I know, crazy.

I'm really itching to get a street bike (I'm using a slightly rusted mountain bike that's been kicking around for years) and just hit the road.

I was talking to my brother, who is a body builder, yesterday and he was apparently talking about me to some friends of his that are trainers. Scary. Anyhow, they work at a gym not too far from me and I might go and talk to the woman trainer. I just gave him the go ahead to call and find out what her schedule is like for me. Double scary.

I'm really trying to find something I can focus on that will keep me going. I don't want this time to be like all those other times where I lost weight and then slowly gained it back and next thing I knew I was 200 pounds again.

I fucking hate 200 pounds.

200 pounds is no fun, the clothes suck and I feel like shit. NOPE not going there again.Pin It

According the bike shop where I bought my mountain bike. Put the ball of your feet on the pedal and ride. Then set your seat height so that your leg is barely slightly bent when the foot is fully extended down.

This will help your knees and give you more power. It may fee weird being that high off the ground at first, but it will save your knees. I swear!!

I am so proud of you.
Walking isn't doing it for me anymore I need to add more things.

I am proud of you.
I too never want to see 200 again and biking is only 1/2 the year since winter it can't be done. I need to find something I like and can do all year round. Okay I think i need to give up the idea that I will like it. :-)

Making the call is a big thing; I go to classes at my gym, but I've never done a personal trainer thing...I think I'm worried the trainer would want to measure my body fat, and then I'd have to cry for a week.

Anyhow, howdy. I popped over from Jenn@JugglingLife--and now I'm your biggest biking fan! Get back out there!
