Weight Loss Goals on Track

by Leonard

This morning was the first day this week that I have not worked out. Instead I slept in for some deserved rest, and then took the trash out. Yesterday however, I burned over 1000 calories in workouts. I did 3 – 40 minute cycle rides where I have pushed up the difficulty on the bike from levels 2 – 5 to a constant level 5 with 2 peaks at level 7.

Then I bought the Nike + Kinect Training for Xbox. Wow, that is a very cool piece of software and gives you quite a work out. Unfortunately, it is a little difficult to do when you have a 2 year old running at your feet. So, we will have to reserve that workout for nap time and early morning or late evening. I will still be using the bike, especially after dinner.

In my last post, I said I was going to buy a new scale. Wow, it's amazing how inaccurate a mechanical scale can be. It was measuring both Rachel and I about 5 – 10 pounds too light! Yup, that means we were even more out of shape than we thought. I'm guessing that last week in the evenings I weighed in at about 200, eeesh! Last night I weighed in at 192, and this morning 190. Don't know why, but it seems you weigh the least, first thing in the morning. Either way, I can now report that I have lost at least 5 pounds this week, maybe more!
