Thread: The Beer Belly Burn Off Challenge

      
   
  1. #341
    So...waaaay back in July of last year, we had to do a 'Pre-order' for work clothes.

    (we have a uniform program at work, it buys us branded shirts and pants and such)

    Anywho...the package just turned up, and I had to return everything, as they were far too big for me to wear now.

    Made me feel kinda cool, for a few minutes (and I take what I can get)

    Officially I'm 60lbs less than when I started back in October or so.

    I feel better all the time, but I still know I'm on a long, slow road.

    Keep up the work guys.

    I've been distracted, taking care of a lot of other people and things for a while. @Vegascat, marching band...oy. My daughter went from that to concert band and pep band. Add a heavy course load for a sophomore, and some other events, and I have two more years of distractions. Got back up to 245 lbs as of Jan 1, 241 at weigh-in yesterday.

    Dropped 1 1/4 lbs last week. Not loads but had a torrid time personally (a situation that made me become suicidal again for the first time in many a year) so its been tough to keep things going. Eating has slipped a little, only the odd occasion though.
    At least exercise wise things picked up. After been ill the week before this week was just about getting going again. Managed 99.5 miles on the bike over 3 rides. The final one being 51 miles and they were on consecutive days so tough going. Its my longest ride since October but I'm a long way from my 120 mile race end of April. plan is to up the distance ride each week by a little more each time

    been absent from this thread of late. A cobination of awful life events, depression really bad and illness has meant little riding, poor eating and little interest in health. Decided I need to get a rocket up my arse if Im to stand any chance of completing th Dirty Reiver in April.

    Anyway got out today after a big mental battle not to make an excuse. did 61 miles, my longest ride for 5 months. Wind was awful, 2 hours straight of 20-30mph head winds followed by 1 1/2 of side winds that nearly knocked me off a few times. Felt pretty good though considering my lack of riding and was easier than I expected, in fact I managed to get 6th fastest overall on a 8 mile segment just near home. Not bad considering Im on a mtb and its a popular road route, plus my gearing means I top out much sooner!

    Got a zone 2 ride planned for wednesday and my normal 35m for Friday. I need to up the distance ride by 15 miles each week to hit 120 miles before the event. Ideally this would be 2 weeks before but I have my first event of the year 3 weeks before so I need to get up to the 120m 2 weeks before that event and have a longer taper.

    DL, nice to see you again! 61 miles! Sounds like it was a tough ride! I've been on my own weird path lately. I was starting to get back into the swing of things until I started taking a full courseload of classes. :( Then I went to Japan for roughly two weeks and while I didn't (surprisingly) pig out while I was there, I didn't exercise any either. I've yet to weigh in since returning and am a bit scared to honestly. I barely have time to check email and such. Haven't had any time to paint or do anything fun, much less spend an hour at the gym. I know its crap and I need to get back on the wagon, but no idea how to make the time right now.

    actually the middle section was virtually flat so not too bad in terms of climbing. I will be adding the climbing element later (as most events I do are around 4000ft of climbing in 60 miles, many at 18% or more gradient! Next week i will be doing 75m on my distance ride.

    I think the important thing is not to beat yourself up about not exercising. Otherwise you run the risk of giving up. If your eating reasonably well then lack of exercise is not so vital, you'll get back to it when you get more time.

    Thanks. I do beat myself up a lot. :P It doesn't help that I still remember how much better I felt when I lost the 50 pounds almost two years ago now. Its both motivational to know what I *can* do it, but a bit crushing to know what I've lost. Once I feel like I'm not barely treading water with work/home/school, I want to get back on some kind of schedule.

    My fitness regime has laxed recently, so in setting myself a goal. I plan to run the Sheffield 10k on October 9th, my aim is to run it in 45 mins or under. The last time I ran a 10k I managed it in 40 mins but that was nearly 10 years ago.
