The One on the Bike (25 / 365)

Lifestyle Stationary Bike

Lifestyle Stationary Bike, my home this morning

The gym parking lot was very full today, what 115° outside and all, I can understand this – and it was mid-day on a Sunday, when my 24 Hour Fitness sees a normal flow of people.  However, when I went in, it was eerily dead except for the yoga class that was beginning.  I love cycling, but I have gained enough weight back that I have to lose some to get back on my mountain bike, I feel, so being able to work out on the cycles indoors is a real plus.

This was my home for 30 minutes, I had planned 45, but damn – I just couldn’t deliver, maybe my nutrition plan for the day failed me, I still felt bloated a bit from the 4 pancakes I had for breakfast (kind of a Sunday tradition).  Or maybe it was my head messing with me, either way it has to be figured out.  I am sincerely thinking about going back and giving it another 110%.

Tomorrow is MOTIVATION MONDAY, so I will think up a person in my world that has inspired or motivated me to talk about.  until then my friends, enjoy your Sunday.  Mark, my friend and father-in-law, happy birthday and may you feel the strength and love of those around you, you have enriched ours with love.

Namaste

The One Where I Won (14b / 365 )

Oooooh, lucky reader, you get what we call a twofer today.  Happy Hump Day.  Here is the special occasion:

I probably should at least TRY to come my hair from, time to time

I probably should at least TRY to comb my hair from, time to time

I follow Rebekah on her continuing fitness journey and fellowship with her community of folks already at or still working toward reaching their goal(s) over at TheHeavyWeightRunner.Com and she recently had a giveaway for a Polar FT4 heart rate monitor.  ironically and she did not know this, I had been really thinking about purchasing one to provide my workout and training toward triathlon the boost and accuracy I needed.  So this was wonderfully timed and SOOOOOOOO appreciated.  Thanks Rebekah.

For my 5 readers, please, take a few moments and take a look at her blog then LIKE her on Facebook at this link, it is an amazing community and wonderful input, tips, and posts daily from Rebekah and other community members.

Namaste
