Confession time!!!

Sunday, April 03, 2011

So I haven't made a blog post in a while. I guess it is mainly because I haven't been doing as well as I was doing last year. It is now confession time. I have gained over 10 lbs and have not changed my weight on the site due to embarrassment. I am still doing my daily exercise but my food has gotten out of control. I stopped tracking when I hit my goal weight. I have found that my quantities have gone up and I have been eating things that I had previously eliminated from my diet. I am now taking the stand that I want to recommit to my health plan.
I have signed up for my first century ride on May 1st. I am eliminating all alcohol from my diet between now and my ride. I am also going to change my actual weight on this site and start tracking my food again. Any support is welcomed.

    There is no way you are almost 60. You look like you're in your 30s. Seriously. Just shows how taking care of yourself can really pay off. Thank you for being such an inspiration.

    You are an inspiration for me. I have about the same amount of total wt to lose that you did and if I can look as GREAT as you that will be awesome! I live in Iowa where the weather is limited from Apil to Sept. My goal is 500 miles this summer. I have added you as a friend for inspiration!!

    I finished my first century on May 1st. My husband and I rode the Wildflower Century in Chico, CA in 7 hours 35 minutes. 2 major climbs (by my standard). I am now on my way to completing my goal of riding 6000 miles by my 60th birthday. I have about 520 miles left and my birthday is on August 27th.

    Good luck on your first century ride! You'll love it.

Drink lots of water in the days leading up to it.

    Right there with you...picked up some winter poundage which I haven't posted either. Just doing my best to get right back at it! It was GREAT to finally hit the roads this weekend after a long, long winter!

    Glad you came back. Don't feel guilty or be embarrassed. I think 99% of Sparkers have been yo-yo-ing for years. I know that if I quit tracking and being honest with my portions, I would also have gained back at least part of what I lost - some of us need that, and some don't. You have taken the steps to get back on track - persistence is what leads to success! Hang in there!
