Cycle commuting

Saturday, May 18, 2013

I am sufficiently proud of myself this week. While I did not do as many Daily hiit videos this week as I planned, I think I was sufficiently active this week now that I have incorporated biking into my work commute. I biked for four days this week which involves about 20-25 minutes between home and job one each way and about 20 minutes between home and job 2 or between job one and job 2.

For example, on Tuesday and Thursday, I biked from home to work 1 (25 minutes), from work one to work 2 (20 minutes), from work 2 back to work 1 (20 minutes) and then from work 1 back home (25 minutes).

Monday and Wednesday (and usually Friday but it was a school PA day so a day off for me), I bike from home to work 1 (25 minutes), work 1 to home (25 minutes), home to work 2 (20 minutes), work 2 to work 1 (20 minutes) and then work 1 to home (25 minutes).

It is a lot of exercise from the biking but since it is commuting, I still feel guilty for not doing my Daily Hiit (which when you count all the cycling minutes, I shouldn't).

The scale is slowly moving again though so I am happy for that. I am down to 186.0 lbs. My inches haven't budged much but you can't have everything. I am looking "tighter" in the abs and legs according to my boyfriend and I can see it a little too. I still have a LONG way to go but it is nice to see some progress. I am aiming to be leaner (not necessarily skinnier-I want to be more athletic in appearance than waify) by December when my BF and I are going to be going to the Dominican for his sister's wedding. I think at the rate I am going I should be ok.
