Bike and Burn - Fat Ticker Friday

I have been doing pretty well this week. Midweek I weighed myself and I had lost a pound. We'll see what the scale says in the morning! Maybe I should tell it to be extra nice because my birthday is Saturday... do you think that would work?

* I just weighed myself, and I lost 2 pounds this week! Wahoo!!

I have been monitoring what I eat (yucky food journal) and working out a lot. My exercise this week mostly consisted of bicycling and I am really enjoying our new healthy hobby.

Saturday I went on a grueling ride with my husband. We went 20 miles total, half of which was up a HUGE hill. From our starting point we figure we climbed 1575 feet in elevation. I didn't think that I could make it, but with my husband's encouragement I did! (To check out the view from the top, just scroll down to the post below!)

Then I have gone on two other bike rides, which were just over 10 miles each. I am enjoying cycling a lot more than I have any other kind of exercise. If you haven't tried it in a while, you should! It's amazing what you can accomplish when you decide that you can do it!

I've been enjoying watching "The Biggest Loser" so far this season. I like the show because it shows that ANYONE can lose weight... and that it's hard work! They get a lot of help and lose weight faster than most people, but even the people who go home and have to do it by themselves look amazing! I have to admit that it also makes me feel good about myself because I realize that I am not fat enough (anymore) to qualify for the show.

I'll have to let you know how I do next week after cycling 60+ miles with Honey Daddy this weekend on our bike tour! Wish me luck!
