New Month....New Goals

Monday, October 01, 2012

So OK. A week or so ago I vowed to forget the scale (well not entirely) and concentrate on measurements. So what happens....I lost 3 lbs this week! Go figure!! Anyway...still focusing on those measurements and of course the starting point is by actually taking my measurements -- always a slightly traumatic event. LOL BUT thanks to a recommendation from a friend who chall remain GetStrongrrr, much easier this time. He recomended something called Myotape.

This made taking the measurements a breeze! Just loop the tape, push the button and bingo! Accurate measurements. LOVE IT!!! So now I have a starting point.

Today I took two long thru central park in the morning and one tonight around a nice quiet neighborhood without a lot of traffic (I know, an oxymoron in NYC, but everything is relative). Also did some HIIT on the bike and some bodyweight ST. I am SO loving this tribesports site. Challenges galore -- from one offs to do X for a week, to 2 weeks to an entire month. One of the challenges I've undertaken is to bike around the coatline of Ireland (3,171.20kms) I may be doing this for the rest of my natural life. LOL It's great fun. And I'm having a blast!

Well that's all the news that's fit to print for tonight! Have a good one!!

    It's kind of like quantum mechanics....once you observe it, the weight never changes....look away, and voila!

I think the myotape is one pretty darn cool invention! Get to cranking on those push-ups again and watch those arms shape right up.

How goes the non-smoking campaign? Tough to ride around the Emerald Isles huffing and puffing

    What a great bunch of activities. Keep up the good work. Keep aiming for the stars and keeping your feet on the ground.
