My recumbant bike is great, but I havent lost any weight. I need to keep going to the gym and getting active. Anxiety holds a person back. My sister and I are planning another cruise in 2008 and I want to look at least as fit as I did after the trip. We walked everywhere. It was great.


Recumbant cycle

Monday, June 11, 2007

I bought a recumbant yesterday. It is a lower end model, regular 199, on sale for 129. I had wanted one for a few years after my stationary bike gave up the ghost. However, I also wanted an elliptical, and it won out-big mistake. It too is the cheaper model, and nothing like the ones at the gym by any means. With the recumant I think it will be good for me-I am not getting to the gym regular, but still get there, and the bike at home is always there. I love it-it is silent, so I can watch tv at normal volume. I may get the gym tomorrow morning, but if I don't my recumbant is staring at me at home, and it is so comfortable to sit on, no excuses. It may not be top model, but doing something is definitely better than nothing at all.


weekend wonder?

Just back from Michigan, with my friend, and her mom. They went to visit a cousin and I tagged along to shop. Shopping was successful. But diet....both families are polish and there was always food, and me being told to have more, I tried to politely refuse and say I had had enough, but at times it felt like I was offending which I didn't want to do, so I ate instead. I don't know if I gained anything over the three days, but walking around shopping may have burned some calories off. I managed to get my friend to go for a walk, very brief, she wanted to turn around, so only 15 minutes but it was better than nothing right?
PS happy Memorial day to the United States from Canada


About control

Tonight my younger brother, his wife, and their baby came over for dinner. My aunt is visiting from the waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay up north. We had chicken, and the sides to accompany it. Instead of taking the entire piece of chicken like I would normally do, I only took half, and opted for more vegetables. Chicken will always be around. There is another day.


LIke A Light Bulb

Yesterday my friend and I went for a walk. Where did we walk to? The ice cream place. What did I have? Absolutely nothing. Though i was tempted, I deliberately left my wallet elsewhere. My friend offered to buy me one, but I didnt cave. I have goals to reach. One big one, my sister and I are planning another cruise for 2008, and though i have a terrific time last year, I was still very self conscious. I want it to be a different fun experience, and I can save having the ice cream for a special on the ship. I never did get around to making my own soft cone last year...could have had something to do with the slight motion sickness. We were always moving, it was such a great time. Contrary to what you hear about cruises, I actually had lost wait then.
