Hi! I hear you on the downtime. I know that my 'off' rides I am burning 2000 calories a pop, so when I took 2 months off, I gained quickly. I'm back to riding but thought I would come back to spark. I ride with some elite riders that just don't understand what is was like to be 260 lbs in a previous life.

I also became a personal trainer on my journey! I hold a NASM CPT certification. While I don't do much with it right now, it's one of my accomplishments and hope to put it into the 'rotation' of life again.

What is tabata? I could look it up but would rather have a conversation :)

Take care! Karin

The only way out is through...

Yes, I have read that book. It's a good read, I've read it two or three times. Thanks for recommending it.

Life's Journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting 'Holy Sh!t What a Ride!'

Welcome to the team. You must be related to my hubby, he seems intent on wearing himself down to a frazzle.

Don, I'll ride 100 when I'm 100. May be in a wheelchair, but I'll do it.

Just starting back up after being away from a very active fitness and lifestyle. I had surgery for a hernia not quite two months ago. Previous to surgery I worked out most days of the week and burned over 8000 calories regularly. I missed my bicycling goal of 5000 mile by about 260 miles. (I was slightly disappointed )

My activities include bicycling, kettelbell training, tabata routines, body weight exercises, some yoga and Pilates. I'll be 52 in a few weeks and hope to live a full life well into my late 90s. I'd like to be able to ride 100 miles when I'm 100!

A little over 5 years ago I weighed about 300 pounds and was half dead. Sleep apenia, high blood pressure, horrible lifestyle and bad food choices stacked up and about killed me.

Times have changed and I don't regret any of it for the most part. Other than wishing sometimes that I would have stuck with the lifestyle I had in my 20s and 30s. Can't change the clock and I'm very happy with my present self.

As motivation I watch The Biggest Loser every week. I'll be attending school to become a Personal Trainer...class starts on Jan 23rd and I'm excited!

The following sums up my zest for life...
"life's journey is not to arrive safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting, holy sh!t...what a ride!"
