I have now lost 3.4 pounds in 3 days. Tomorrow I weigh and measure and I can't wait. I have not seen progress in inches in a couple weeks despite gradual loss on the scale, so I hope this week it shows up. <BR> I also jsut pulled the bike out, looks like I need to pump u the tires. if it's not raining Sunday afternoon, I am gonna make a test run to work and time how long it would take me. ... Fri, 8 Apr 2011 19:00:37 EST back in focus http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4142594 I have really been stalled in my weight loss efforts the last week or two. I completed the Indoor Ironman at my local YMCA, and really liked pushing myself to finish that well. But to do that, I focused almost exclusively on biking (spin classes) and running, which I did on the elliptical.

But then I ordered cheesey brocolli soup. It really wasn't worth the calories or even the time to eat it and by the time it arrived, I was not hungry anymore.

Thu, 24 Mar 2011 23:04:43 EST Snow day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4112926 Today school got cancelled, we are having a major snowstorm. So much for my hour on the elliptical! But I know I will get more than that shoveling :( I am so glad I put in some extra time at the YMCA the last few days. The Ironman indoor triathlon ends this weekend and I am almost done. I need 2 more group cycling classes, which I will get on Thursday and Friday, and I am only a couple miles short in the running, so I can squeeze that in around the cycling and finish Friday! I wasn't sure I... Wed, 23 Mar 2011 14:33:31 EST
