Delightfully Chaotic

Back on the saddle

“Come on Cletus! It ain’t nuthin’ but a short walk. You might walk over, but you limpin’ back! I ain’t no easy win!” 

“Just as he is sharing all of your adventures, others are sharing his. They were with him when he hid from the boys in the book store.”-The Neverending Story

See that little smiley up there?  That has been me the past few days.  I’ve decided to really get off my lazy but and start exercising.  Here’s what I’ve been doing: 

  • Fri.- walked 1 3/4 mi (2 laps I jogged)
  • Sat.- bike 25 min 5 mi
  • Mon.- bike 20 min 4 mi
  • Tues.-bike 30 min 5.5 mi

Ok so here’s my question when I say bike it’s a stationary bike, anyways do you think I’m getting a good enough workout to loose weight by doing this.  I mean I know it’s good exercise and cardio but will I loose the weight as efficiently as if I was walking/jogging on a track.  Either way I’m exercising and that’s a start, oh I’ve also started stretching and man that’s been kind of tough.  So I guess you can say that I’m back on the weight loss challenge because I’m seriously determined to shed some pounds.  Last bit of info. start weight was 166 lbs and now I’m 164 lbs.  But it’s not because of exercise although it’s helped not putting on those 2 lbs.  Ok wish me luck. 🙂

    Good Luck! I have been on Weight Watchers and am down 25lbs since before I had my last kiddo. I have 30 pounds to go to reach my goal but it has been rocky getting there. I have been yo-yo-ing with 5 pounds in the last few weeks up and down. I can’t wait for the kids to go back to school so I have more time to exercise again!

    Good Luck with your venture!!!

    Good for you! I think that biking can be as beneficial as walking. I love stationary bikes. Keep up the good work!

    My comment probably won’t be encouraging because in my experience, none of that helps with weight loss. Whenever I run 4 miles at a time on the treadmill 5 days per week for several months in a row, I am doing well to lose up to 4 measly pounds. I do notice feeling better and increased stamina and overall fitness during that time, but no weight loss. Hope you have better luck than I ever did. I don’t usually get on the treadmill except in the winter when I ache for activity. I’ve given up on using it as a weight loss tool. Heck, I’ve given up on trying to lose weight. Turns out that’s the only thing that worked for me. I lost 25 pounds faster by not trying. Go figure!
