Food, Cycling & Sweat

My journey to eat and live a healthy life!

The Last Frontier…

with 2 comments

So, I have a new found dislike for the home I missed for two years and came running back to last summer: Alaska… The Last Frontier. Home to the great outdoors and wonderful outside activities. So what the @#$% is up with all this DAMN rain?!?

But of course, the sun wants to come out at some point… while I’m at WORK!!

The thing is this: I don’t mind getting out in the rain and doing my thing… Cycling, running, hiking, whatever! But I am constantly being thrown obstacles that require money. Like my bike needs fenders otherwise my face becomes the target for every square inch of water that my front tire can throw up at me. Or if I want to run, I need new shoes otherwise my knee, calfs and ankles give up by 1.5mi and if by some chance I push to 3mi or more I can barely walk for two days. And any other outdoor sport that I want to do (paintball, skiing, etc…) I need contacts because my glasses fog so bad I can’t see my hand in front of my face!

So I know I am just complaining right now, and things may get better eventually,  but I was so looking forward to running today. I tried my hiking shoes but apparently that was a bad idea because my shin is a mess now. Oh well, second job here I come! But wait, that means NO time in my already MINIMAL amount of time to do pretty much ANYTHING! Ahhh, life… just keeps raining on me… LITERALLY! 🙂

On a plus note… I weighed myself this morning. My starting weight was 220.1 lbs.

Current weight…

(drum roll please…)

Here it is…

(continuing drum roll…)

215.2 lbs!!

So maybe I am doing something right after all? Or maybe it’ll all come back by monday. WHO KNOWS!! I guess we all have to wait and find out!! lol

But for now, I’m off. And sorry, no food pics today. Breakfast was healthy but lunch was eaten in the privacy of my car… Can anyone guess what evilness I was eating today? Go ahead, I dare you!

Bye for now!

  1. You’re amazing!!!! Good job on losing the weight!! I wish I could say I’ve done the same but in the last few years I’ve done nothing but gain weight. 27 lbs to be exact. Keep up the good work! Love the pics!

    • Well, thx for the encouragement! In five years of marriage I have gained almost forty pounds. I have lost half that before and gained it all back which sucks… but I’m optimistic this time! Just keep the goal in your mind and set smaller goals to help keep you motivated and seeing progress. To help with the food aspect, check out The Eat Clean Diet by Tosca Reno… this is my food bible, literally! good luck!
