Bike around the world: get ready, get set, go!

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

For a while I have been tossing an idea around in my head. For some reason, I have been wanting to bike around the world.

I dont know if Im a glutton for punishment or what because this is a challenge of gigantic proportions, after all it takes 24,901 miles to circle the earth.

One thing is for sure, I will be peddling for a long time!

I hope my Nordic Track recumbent bike can take the mileage!

I think this is the perfect challenge for me because with 212 more pounds to lose of my 232 pound weight-loss goal, I am keenly aware that I will have to be on this weight-loss journey for the long haul.

Im hoping this challenge will keep me fully engaged in reaching my fitness goals.

Now I do plan on starting out on my exercise bike, but maybe as I lose weight I will be able to pull my regular bike out of the shed. I hope it works well after surviving the flooding last year that came with the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee.

Every now and then I intend to report my progress.

For a while now I have been saving my mileage from the cardio workouts I have done, and I could count that, but I think since I am making the challenge official today, I will start fresh with zero miles.

Today will be day one that is after I go to sleep and wake up again, since it is after midnight.

So Im off to a trip around the world. Wish me luck!!!
