Get me a paddle

Hopefully I can be out of the 240's relatively soon. Since I've started to really dial in my food intake I've dropped 4 pounds. I expect that's a lot of water weight, but I'll take it. I really do need to see numbers to feel like I'm doing something and to keep me motivated. That's why it really is a worst case scenario if I allow myself to stop doing weigh-in's. I guarantee that's a huge part of what got me here again.

In other new's I'm going to see if i can manage to ride my bike to work a few days this week. Logistically it's a pain but when I can manage it I basically get 2 hours of cardio a day which is great. As a fall back measure if I can't ride I'll get in some gym visits either in the AM or in the afternoons.

That reminds me, I need to get some new headphones for working out. Working out with no music is like canoeing without a paddle. You can do it but it sure aint no fun!

I know how hard that initial weigh-in can be, but now that you know exactly what you're up against you can start making measurable progress. If weighing in every day helps you then do it religiously.

I've been wanting to start riding a bike to work myself, just to a) get some fresh air as it's been really nice here lately and b) get some lower-intensity cardio that's actually enjoyable. Unfortunately I got hit with a ton of expenses this past month so I have to wait to buy a bike. Hopefully I can get one soon. I know it helped you a lot in the past, so if you can manage it then go for it.

Sounds like your gaining some momentum glad to see it. It's amazing how much kids change a persons schedule. I feel the squeeze too but we have to make time to be healthy if we want to be good men/fathers/husbands etc. Keep your head in the game its a win win for everyone.
