It’s come to my attention that I didn’t give a proper status for August – though – I wasn’t really sure that was in the requirements… here you go!
It’s not been the best month of weight loss, but it hasn’t been too bad. I had a bit of a scare last week, with just a .2 pound loss, but the streak of consecutive Fridays is still alive and well. Its harder and harder to lose and it’s harder to stay motivated. Some days it’s easier than others, but sometimes you just want to pig out.
I was pretty proud of myself last night (not in August, but …) I went to my favorite bbq place and had a sensible meal. I don’t think I would of if I didn’t have to weigh in today, but you have to do what you have to do – that’s how things go.
My riding in August faded just bit. Nothing to worry about – but I just didnt get out as much as I should of and in some cases as much as I would liked to have. I decided to capture a little graph of my riding. It’s much easier (and more accurate) when my computer isn’t broken. I did figure out how to add stuff manually – so that helps, but its vague and the speeds are a bit flakey.
I am missing a few earlier in the season rides, but for the most part – that’s my mileage. In comparison to last year – June much greater – July is a little lighter…. August I didn’t ride last August… I should beat September without much problem. I’m looking at a 4000 mile year – which I will be proud of.
Finally – I looked at my graph of the last 2 years and was happy. While I did falter – I have come back and made up for it. Thanks to all who have helped and supported. Every “Are you losing weight?”, “How much have you lost?” or other related comment REALLY helps me. More than you could even know.
