Weight Progress for 5/28/2017

Another week, another loss. I have to admit, I was expecting a much smaller trend down this week. My week was pretty crazy and I didn’t get to eat as well as I wanted. I was over my calorie budget two of the days, one significantly. I had a split double shift on Tuesday for […]

Sunday Run – 6.6 miles

Today I got in the first post half marathon lake run. I plan on doing this every other week with my friend to gauge how well I’m progressing this spring/summer. I can’t believe it was only October of last year when I tried this run. I started out running a mile, walking a quarter mile, […]

Saturday Ride – 18.8 miles

Second 18+ mile ride. Getting to the point where the trails are not going to be long enough for me to ride the distance I want unless I start doing some creative routes. I still have the Landon trail I can ride out and back to give me about another 5 miles I believe but […]

Saturday Ride – 18 miles

Such a great day for a bike ride. I really enjoy this route and using it as my starting point for this year. 16 miles seems like a good start. The Shunga and Landon¬†trails allow for me to add more miles as I get more fit. My hope is to add more miles as the […]

Weight Progress for 5/14/2017

Happy with this loss. As I get closer to my target goal I don’t want to still see the massive 1.5+ lbs drops I have seen in the past. I want to make sure I’m keeping my lean mass up and only losing the fat. My body fat percentage today dropped to 18% so I’m […]
