Spark-plugged


Saturday, March 31, 2012

For the past few days, I've been keeping up with Spark-People, noting my nutrition, and exercise.
It has been good for me to get back to drinking 8 or more glasses of water, not eating after 7pm and discipline in the area of food and exercise. It is coming together and clothes are getting looser. Instead of reprimanding myself for my failure of not being able to stay where I was at previous lower weight, I'm headed back toward that goal and plan to visit it and stay there! Not easy but I think worth the effort.

Today, friends and I enjoyed a beautiful trail ride and rode from Piedmont, Al to a little beyond the Georgia line, on the Ladiga/Silver Comet trail. It was a great bike ride, beautiful weather and we enjoyed the lovely spring scenery.

    I started seriously biking 5 years ago. Our local club ushered me into distance riding, then encouraged me to get a road bike. When we worked the details with the National Forestry dept. on establishing our trail, it didn't take too long for me to start mountain biking. At my weight, then, it wasn't easy but I had willing friends to show me easier routes. It worked for me in Dec. of 2010 to drop pounds, while cycling 3x or more a week. I wasn't aiming for quick, but due to the extensive work-out, so many calories were burned...the weight came off quicker than anticipated. I kept that up until injury in April. And as soon as I was cleared, back on the bike(s). This time, after gain, it is slower, but something has clicked again and the pounds are falling off. That has helped me mentally to stay on top of my tracking plan. I write it down, then post on Spark-nutrition and exercise.

    Sounds great keep up the good work. My wife and I have bikes... they are, however, in the storage unit. Probably won't do us any good there!

    The not eating after 7pm is difficult. If I ride hard that day (usually a mountain bike day) I find I'm not that hungry and more sleepy, early in the evening. Strategic planning of meals, really helps to keep those hunger pains at bay. Now, if I do a night ride, that is the exemption from eating after 7 due to you must fuel up to replenish the loss and not suffer the next day.
