I’ve started over with my regiment

Monday, February 17, 2014

Well; let’s face it; I’ve started over with my regiment. So many times we start out with good intention to find ourselves back at square one; well I’m like everyone else; that is and has been my story for too long to mention. But here I am; at it again; knocked down by not knocked out! I always say being a teenage athlete and 12 years of military service; I’m no stranger to fitness; I know what it looks like and feels like. I know how to obtain it and maintain it; I know how; but doing it has been my problem. So once again; I’m trying to reinvent myself to come out on top of this thing.

May 2013 I purchased my first road bike with the notion of getting in to road cycling. I need something low impact for the knees so I figured that was the ticket. I like it I really do and I’m hopeful this riding season will find me completing my first century in September 2014. I’ve already set the date and the location so I just need to prepare to get it done. I can do this outside of time management of working two jobs; I really can do this.

I’m taking on a new focus to conquer the battle of the bulge. I’ve added Focus T25 to my regiment. I know, something else started; something else to take more time. I took my before pictures and I’m trying to figure out who the person in the picture is. The pictures should be motivating enough to stick to something that will make a difference. One day, one moment, one step at a time; we will see what each day brings.

Good luck everyone!

    Sounds like you have a great plan. I am working toward a long ride this year too. Although not a quite a century, there is a rails to trails bike trail near my house that is 39 miles long, going through about 4 different small towns. My goal is to do the whole 78 miles by June 30th. I have had this as a "back of my mind" kind of goal for about 7-8 years. This year I WILL do it and I have faith that you will too!!! emoticon emoticon
