Loss Since April 7: 1.0
Total Loss: 17.8 lbs
Weigh in for DietBet 1 (Jan 28) and weigh out for DietBet 3 (April 23)
Excuse the bedhead.
I was worried about this DietBet. I hit my number at the two week mark, but then I wasn’t losing any more. I also knew I was going to be away this weekend. Friday when I left, I was half a pound over. I decided to just do my best, make smart choices, and track. I weighed myself last night when I got home and thought I was in a good place . . . → Keep Going: Weigh In: April 23, ISO: DietBet
It took a lot of editing and re-editing not to call it “Q1 down the drain”, but I know Robby would brain me if I did that.
I went off track with #GoTheDist last year when the weather got better. I naturally switched to walking home more which hurt my GTD goal (750 miles on the bike). I was at about 50% for the year (after a kickass 136% start to Q1) when I quit tracking there. But I just looked at my Map My Fitness totals and…. 682.9. 91.05%
I think if I’d realized I was so close . . . → Keep Going: GTD 2013: Q1
with today’s workout complete, Q1 of the #GoTheDist challenge is as well
Q1 mileage: January: 114.23 bike / 4.01 walking
February: 62.18 bike / 8.61 walking
March: 62.57 bike / 31.24 walking
Total: 238.98 bike . / 43.86 walking
Although only the ~239 miles counts for #GoTheDist, I’m very impressed with those totals. While it looks like I wasn’t any more active in March than I was in a (sick & traveling) February, it’s more that I walked home a lot more. Not as strenuous as the gym, but good activity and good for the head.

activity miles logged since I began tracking on MapMyFitness in April 2011. That’s pretty impressive. 104.3 of that was in July and I petered off in the fall when work was crazy but got back on track with 61.81 miles in December. I’m hoping to carry that motivation into 2012.
Some additional information about that 519.29 miles:
79.66 total hours
Now I didn’t hit either my mini weight goals in 2011 but those numbers are pretty powerful. Imagine where I’d been if I hadn’t logged that mileage?

What was that I said the other day about diminishing activity points?!
MONSTER day today w 1487 calories burned, good for 14 APs. The thing is? I totally could have gone longer.
It started after my Weight Watchers meeting this morning (up point 2, totally expected after some not great food choices this week and big losses the last two weeks). It was a gorgeous day and I was trying to stretch my errands out as long as possible, i.e. the furthest Modells and branch of the library*. I had moderate success with that . . . → Keep Going: Monster AP Day
WOW That’s last week’s 1.5 erased and 2.9 “new” pounds. I knew I’d been good this week but didn’t think I’d been that good. In updating my WPs used/APs earned chart this week I realized I’ve been looking at the wrong number. My biggest losses have come when I earned the most APs. It doesn’t seem to matter how many WPs were used.
So contrary to the popular axiom: you lose weight in the kitchen and get fit in the gym, I seem to be getting more benefit from the gym. Don’t know if it’s increased muscle that’s burning while . . . → Keep Going: 4.4 really?
That may be a first for me, at least since high school when I was playing soccer. Even that in my position as a striker or right full back wasn’t usually 60m straight. Wish I had the fitness and body now that I did then and thought was “fat”.
But very proud of what I did. I also had gym time Thursday-not sure how long but don’t think it was that long. From my recollection: 10m elliptical, 10m rowing and then bike time. I know it was 5.5 APs
Saturday: 25m elliptical, 35 recumbent bike – 7 APs Sunday: . . . → Keep Going: 60m cardio, 3 days in a row for me
Well that was a new way to earn APs. A friend is in town to do a half marathon tomorrow and she wanted to do something different and fun today. She did some research and came up with New York Circus Arts‘ Intro class. The class includes: Acrobalance, Aerial acrobatics, Trampoline, Juggling, Trapeze …
Totally not anything I’d have thought of to do on my own but it was so much fun. I think I actually learned to juggle and I loved the trampoline – so much easier on my knees. Makes me think I might take the rebounding class . . . → Keep Going: Circus Class
