Back In the Saddle

I have not blogged in a long, long time.  However I have still continued to lose weight, although that has mostly been merely a by-product of working on my feet 8 hours a day.  Over the last week I've began exercising and eating right again and am ready to keep blasting the fat away.

I'm sad to say that during my blogging break I began smoking again.  Ugh for shame Kate, for shame.

I've developed some new interests and am very excited to start exploring bicycle touring.  Those touring bikers can basically eat anything they want because they are burning soooooo many calories a day.  I'm working up my stamina and endurance on my el-cheapo one speed Canadian Tire bike that I bought 3 years ago.  Today I went 4 miles, averaging..... 9mph.  Which actually made me very happy because on monday I went one mile and only managed to do 6.5 mph.  Big improvment!!

I'm planning to buy a kid bicycle trailer for my one year old and hit the road with my kids over the nice weekends that are quickly going to be upon us.  I live 16 miles from a great campground on the side of the bitterroot mountains.  I'm thinking this will be our first adventure and I'd like to be ready to do it the first week of May. For next week my goal is to bike 6 miles everyday and get my speed up to 11 mph.

Ultimately for my 30th birthday, when I'm down to my ideal weight I would like to do a cross country tour.  This is likely a pipe dream as it would involve a lot of time off work but if not for 30 at some point in my life I will do it!

Week 35 : 64 lbs down, 118 lbs to go
Current Weight : 263 lbs
Start Weight : 327 lbs
Goal Weight : 145 lbs
