Back on the diet-wagon but hard to hold on. Have not been able to do strenuous weight exercises or upper body aerobics due to a shoulder injury. But prior to shoulder injury other health obstacles started in Feb. when I hurt my lower back and could hardly get around for 3 weeks. Then on the cusp of healing in Mar. I caught a bad cold that wiped me out for 3 weeks. I have managed to drop 21 lbs. since Jan 1st. despite not being able to get in some aggressive exercise. Lately, my exercise consist of getting ready for Spring gardening. The grass is growing so fast it needs mowing once or twice a week. I guess that will teach me to fertilize!
I am excited for May it is my annual Run For The Wall 6000+ mile motorcycle road-trip . Riding burns 2.8 Cal/Min. I will burn at least 480 Cal/day that equates to 8 hrs moving time in the saddle. Takes about 14 hours and 700 miles to acquire those GOLDEN 480 Cal. I generally lose around 8 to 10 lbs by the time my trip is completed.
