Hey guys. Look at me missing my weekly entry. I didn’t mean to, I promise. I’ve just been working a lot. Good news, though: I lost one pound last week. I’m also doing P90X religiously (well, the days I am at work; I missed yesterday and will miss Wednesday and Thursday this week because of training). I love it so far. Each workout is challenging and insanely hard. I know I’m only on week three, but I thought the routines would become, well, routine and, thus, boring. But they haven’t. Not yet. Next week we switch up the order of the workouts so that will mix it up a little.
This weekend is the Pine Creek Trail bike trip. I just finished making my packing list. I love love love writing out packing lists. Because it means I’m going somewhere. And, for all those who know me, you know that I love going somewhere. Anywhere. All the time. Always. Let’s go.
Clay is making ham and cheese rolls (about 7 PP per serving), and I’m packing rice cakes, (2PP per serving), fruit snacks (2 PP per serving), peanut butter (3 PP per serving), and fruit (probably a few apples). If you’ll recall, last season, when we climbed the mountain in Cumberland, I finished the first days’ ride by guzzling down a burger, fries, and cheese balls. I’m hoping this year I can control that a little more. Even if I indulge in one of those things (because sometimes a girl just needs a burger, you know?), I am hoping to be strong enough to replace one of the other items with a salad.
I’m not setting a mileage-goal for this trail. Mostly because it’s all uphill, and I don’t do well with uphill rides. So my goal is to bike as long as I can bike. I know that the way back will be all downhill, so I hope knowing that will push me to ride farther than I think I can.
I have felt so successful and healthy these past few weeks. I knew I would get back into things once my class was over. The arrival of spring has helped, too. So here’s to another good week. I hope everyone out there is doing well, too, and enjoying this fine weather.
Weight loss this week: 1 pound
Total weight loss: 39 pounds
