My huband and I have been talking about taking a motorcycle tour of either Ireland, Scotland, or maybe Spain in a few yrs (when we turn 40). So I though, why not make that my ultimate reward to work towards in my weight lose!! I'm going to print off some pictures of each country with a motorcyclist in it so I have a reminder at home and work. We have figured it will cost about 10k for the trip and if I can get off insulin, that is already over 2k over the 2 yrs we would be saving in meds.
We went to a buffet last night and while I didn't stuff myself, my blood sugars were totally out of whack and I don't even want to know about my calories. So I am going home at lunch, changing into my gym clothes and hitting the elliptical for at least 40 minutes. I've been working my way up in minutes and last time felt like I could go longer.
I have acquired the girls next door to come with me roller skating in the future. I was a skating demon when I was younger and what great exercise it is! I know I'll be hurting afterwards, but it will be a good hurt.
