I'm back. Made some big purchases this week.
Saturday, April 10, 2010
So I feel like I have been missing in action over the last week or so but I'm back. April is a pretty busy month for me with school and my sparkpeople activity has been limited to tracking food and excercise. Sorry if I haven't been able to keep up with everyone's blogs.
This week I made some pretty significant purchases. I will share.
1. Watch. I have some nice watches but I didn't have a straight up athletic watch for running with laps and chrono. So I got this:
(This isn't the exact same watch but pretty close. Retails for $50 but I got it new off ebay for $17 including shipping)
2. Book. I'm planning on doing some sprint triathlons this summer so I thought this would be a good start.
3. Bike. Anyone following my blog knew that when I got to 200lbs I would be rewarding myself with a road bike. Well I jumped the gun. I came across a bike that was a perfect fit for me on craigslist at a price I couldn't pass up. It's a sweet ride and I'm loving it. Here is a pic.
Although I haven't eaten well the last few days I have made some big strides recently. I hit the 30lb off mark this last week and am getting lots of compliments on looking healthier.
Starting tomorrow I am going to stay within my caloric range for 10 days in a row. I always do well on weekdays and struggle on the weekends. But not next weekend.
Keep up the great work everyone!
