Easy does it!

I tend to go a bit overboard in either direction. Moderation eludes me.

The Bike

After the 8 miles on the bike Friday, I figured I would easily hit 10 by the end of the weekend.

My legs were not happy with me at all on Saturday. After 4 straight days of using the bike, they wanted a break. I didn’t give them a break because nobody has time for that. 😛

Saturday – 5 Miles

Sunday – 8 miles

I didn’t hit the 10 miles I was hoping for but going from 0 to 10 miles in the first week was a wee bit optimistic. Heck, I would be happy with a whole week at 8, this week. Tamp down those expectations a bit. I don’t want to burn out but I also have no idea how everyone else is doing. Moving the weigh-in day to Thursday, means I won’t know how hard my competition is working until then.

I know Mr. B is running but it would have been interesting to see his weight on Monday because he and his wife eat out a lot on the weekends.

The Menu


Breakfast – hamburger with cheese

Lunch – Turkey burger with cheese

Dinner – Chicken with salad

Snacks – String cheese, turkey burger, almonds

Calories -1620

Once again, a little higher than I wanted but after the LSU loss my brain was telling me I needed ICE CREAM to sooth my anger. Instead I grabbed some almonds. 😛


Breakfast – Hamburger with cheese

Weight Statistics


Daily Loss – 2.1 pounds

Total – 6.7 pounds

Huge drop after the 8 mile ride on Friday. I was a bit suspicious of the number and not sure it would stick on Sunday morning.


Daily Loss – .6 of a pound

Total – 7.3  pounds

Not bad for the first week. Won’t know how the number compares to everyone else until Thursday. Not bad, but also not thrilled with the number given that I added the bike into the mix. My week two number will show me if the bike is helping or hurting.

Happy dieting, see you tomorrow
