As i've mentioned I take my bike to work sometimes to get a little exercise. Last year i competed 1000 miles total. Starting last july 4th and ending around October.
This years goal is now 2000 miles! I've invested in a pair of winter cycling tights and a ski mask. It works great and as long as i dont do any banking on the way home I usually dont have a problem, lol.
I was scanning Craigslist and saw an ad for a woman who stated she gained too much weight over the winter and was looking for a treadmill. I contacted her, told her about myself and asked her if she ever thought about just walking outside. She told me thats a good idea and she will start soon. Wouldnt it be nice if we could lose weight just by thinking about it? I mean all the time we spend online reading about it(this blog included), buying equipment, "new" diet fads(that are always better than the last diet fad) and just general information gathering. Its easy! We can do it in our pajamas at anytime. The drive to do all this research might be finding out most of our clothes dont fit anymore.
Honestly...............There's an old formula that holds true. Calories in = calories out. Stop wasting the whole day reading about it. Get out and do it.
