It was a beautiful fall Saturday in the Northwoods of NW WI. For the last five days I have enjoyed the company of some of my favorite little people who were on fall break from school. It was warm enough for a picnic by the lake on Thursday afternoon with three of the grandbbaies. We rode our bikes two miles to this little county park. Noah (2) was in the Burley.
The grandbabies definitely slowed me down on exercising, although I still did get in over 51 miles on my bike. Many of those rides were slow because they were with me. I also towed the Burley over 20 miles with that two year old. I used our riding time to share bike safety with them and taught them a few tips about going up and down hills. Slow, but sweet rides.
I tracked food again 7/7 days, coming in about 1650 calories every day. I exercised 6/7 days for a total of over of 7 hours this week, with a cycling total today of 51 miles, walking 4 miles. I did not get up the stairs once this past week, but did walk a couple of small hills. I did not weigh in this week (every two weeks). I believe I checked in with all challenge bloggers spreading love. I failed (again!!) to read more about changing metabolism as we age and weight loss, but will! In sum, I think I am doing great on both of these challenges. I tried on that little red dress and it zipped up!! Snug, but zipped!! The fall challenge (next) will make that little red dress a reality.
My goals for this challenge are:
1. To aspire to 300 miles of cycling in October. I am shooting for 26/31 days on the bike. How did I do: Great! I rode 6/7 days with a total mileage so far of 51. My October mileage is: 248!! I am right on track for 300 miles.
2. Walking: I am going to strive for 10 days of walking and a total mileage of 35 miles walked. How did I do: Great! Walked for a total of 5 miles.
Have a great rest of your weekend. Thanks for reading and stopping by. TTFN! Michele
