A Good Start
But I hate exercise.
I don't wanna run or walk (not counting doggie walking) and I especially don't want to join a place to go exercise at. Don't have the 'outfits' either.
But I have a nice new bike and I like the breeze rushing past me, but don't like the traffic on Main and Market Streets.
DUH! I can ride in the neighborhood! Brilliant.
So this morning I decided to do just that. I got my handy timer and set it for 20 minutes, which burns 87 calories and set off. Most of the streets are pretty level, with just a little rise. I managed OK on the slopes and really loved the downhills. I discovered a huge chicken factory a couple of streets south of us. And there are mega-car dealerships one street further, but I didn't go there.
Twenty minutes went by pretty fast and I came home with rubber legs, which goes to show you I did exercise. A thin film of sweat is further proof, but that's too much information.
It's been a week since I started back on the Loseit.com program and I am 8 pounds less than my first weigh in. I know that seems like a lot for a week, but at first you lose lots of water weight.
Gotta say, I feel lighter, but it's probably all in my head.
