Well this is the best start to a Monday in awhile. Down 2 pounds and feeling good coming off a weekend of healthy eating and good workouts.
I did learn one thing yesterday. Even though all the recumbent bikes at the gym look the same they do not all act the same. I switched to a different one yesterday and it about kicked my butt using the same levels I had been using on one of the other ones. Level 14 seemed more like level 17. Some of it could be the legs were more tired than normal, but not sure what the cause was. I guess I will find out tonight if I try a different one. But tonight is a short ride due to racquetball. Hopefully I do a little better tonight.
But it does feel so good to be back on the path and losing weight. Admittedly my energy level is down some, but I am working harder than I have in awhile so figure some of that is the hard work and then maybe not sleeping as much as I should be.
I am loving the Olympics, but not watching nearly as much as I would like to of it. I do watch as much as I can though since some of the sports you so rarely see. Especially the winter sports. Although one thing I always liked was the simplicity of how you win. You were either the fastest or you weren’t. Pretty simple. My main problem with the Olympics now is so many of the events have a judging component that either I did not know existed as a kid, or did not pay attention to. The judging throws in so much subjectivity. Especially on something like the classic ski jump. In my opinion it should be all about distance. Form is covered in the fact that bad form will mean a shorter jump. Perfect form means a longer jump. So you pretty much better have it all together or you will be out of the running. What need is there for style points?
But so much anymore in life today seems to have a judging component. I guess I just don’t like judging people like that. I can see it in some areas I guess, but I could care less if your legs aren’t tight during a triple toe loop. For me it is, did you land it.
Okay, enough of the negatives about it. Can’t wait to watch some more and enjoy it.
Have a great Monday.
