36 hours no sleep and some bike talk from the fat guy.

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

We are doing well and are on plan as far as the eating and drinking are concerned but Sunday I woke up at 11AM because of staying up late and it threw off two whole days. Sunday night when I went to bed I just laid there, staring at the ceiling thinking about bicycle light options because of a post on a bike forum I read. An hour later I decided that since I was just laying there I may as well get up because sleep was not an option and before I knew it 6:00 AM Monday morning was here. It would appear that an all nighter was the result of a late morning and a restless night, no worries. I'll just take a nap with the baby when she goes down and it will be a meh kind of day but at that point my options were slim so onward the day went.


My Sigma micro led mounted on the back of my Giro helmet.


I have a white one for the front that was not on the helmet when I took these images.

The school called and said short day for my other kids so there goes the nap, oh well and I ended staying up for 10 minutes shy of 36 hours from Sunday morning until Monday night. I did manage to stick to my calories yesterday but I did not exercise a single bit and though I slept a solid 7 hours last night I feel it today and think its going to be a two night sleep fix.

The weather outside has been frightful, so working out inside has not been delightful let it snow let it... no wait.. sub zero temps are replaced with what? rain of course.. it is currently 34 degrees outside at about half past noon New England time and if the rain holds off I may just hop on the K2 for my short "workout route". I do not mind riding when its cold, I don't mind riding when its dark, I don't even mind riding when its cold AND dark but when you add wet into that mix I'll pass and as long as the rain is not falling when the boss lady gets home later I will go for that ride and if not then it's the trainer.

I need to start riding more often so that I have my riding legs when the weather warms up and I am looking for regular rail trail rides again because if I miss the spring season I will not be a happy camper. My weight is coming down and I feel much better than I did 3 months ago, I don't see why I can't be back to a decent weight by say? June and that's the date that I gave wify for me to shave this critter hanging onto my jaw otherwise known as the "puppy" or my beard.

Over all everything is going well though I would like to add more exercise and I am feeling good about where things are headed. Thanks for following along with me while I drop the weight from my bones and get back to where I was so that I can get to where I was heading when I started writing this blog.

Tune in tomorrow for the newest edition of as the fat guy turns.

    Howdy. Yes, it's me: howdy!!!

My daughter's friend is married to a serviceman who had a traumatic brain injury, and because she's clued in to that issue, she says POC helmets are absolutely the safest helmet every. Only helmet that stops brain -shear injuries. I asked Santa for one for Christmas, and now maybe I'll survive another biking season!

Anyway. Nice to be back. And see you back. Yeah us!

I've been spinning a lot both in class and out...this past Saturday the fellow had us doing a lot of leaping back & forth from sitting to standing. Did my quads ever feel THAT!! :-)

    haha! sorry about the sleep, but i love your "fat guy" posts they make me smile. I can't wait to get back on my bike. i'm a fair weather biker and in st louis that doesn't mean a whole lot of biking because it's either too hot, or too cold. looking forward to a Connecticut fall this year so I can ride! it's one of the only things i'm keeping from my belongings when i move out there! may need one of those cool light thingies though....

    I just couldn't do it. Five minutes after hitting the pillow, I'm out.

    One good thing about being sleep deprived - it only takes me six minutes to fall asleep each night (my FitBit tells me so!).

Hope you recover!
