I meet my mountain bike group and we went for a 1 hour ride and i also added an extra 1 hour ride to complete my 2 hour ride scheduled for Iron man training today.
It was 31F and super windy. I had ALOT of clothes on. Cycling bib, undershirt, knee warmers, leg warmers, tee shirt, track suit pants, 2 pairs of socks, 2 pairs of gloves, my EXO-PRO face mask to keep ears face and neck warm and a jacket!!! Be glad when it does not take me 20 mins to get all my clothes on. Here is a link for my fantastic face mask: http://www.exo-pro.com/
I heard from a fan Sara who has got a brand new shinny bike. Here a pic of it..i am jealous!
I had a great ride with with of my new mountain bike pals! Here is some shots of them today. Seven of us rode in the cold
I had a good day on my WW plan. Getting plenty of fruit and veggies. For dinner i had Chicken and Sweetcorn wit a lil potatoes! Super good. As well as adding the 2 hour ride to my acidity points i had a great 1 hour walk with my wife today!!! Thanks hottie!!
Well thats all from me today. Tomorrow is another awesome day ahead! Enjoy your life because it is short!

Among the highlights i had to go to my second Weight Watchers weigh in. I had to look up a place to go and weigh in. I stepped on the scale and my heart sank. My first week i lost 7.8LBS and this time only 0.2! Awwww. Well it was not the same scale and they explained having such a big loss the week before meant i would not get one this time. All that got me through is thinking that on biggest loser they always have very bad weigh ins on week 2.
I had to eat out alot last week but i kept in my points range. I hope i do better this Tuesday. I am only going to be in the office Mon-Thur then on Friday i have to fly to New Orleans for work Fri-Thur.
Training is going ok. It IS difficult to keep up on the plan while traveling for work but it can be done. I did have to give up hanging out with people to go to the pool.

As you can tell it is going to be very difficult to slid a workout in until Monday. So looks like i might be going 3 days with no workout. This is very worrying to me. I am still on track on my weight watchers plan. I found a place in Louisville KY i can go to a meeting on Tuesday night to weigh in.
I am meant to be doing a 2 hour cycle workout on Sat but i don't think that is going to happen. I am going to be fully concentrate on building my marriage stronger this weekend. And giving my wife some much needed attention.
I already know where the gym is for next week as i have been down there before. Again i will be in a class room all week where boxes of donuts are constantly out. This probably wouldn't bother most people but it does me.
I will have to plan ahead with food to eat and things to drink as normally they just have soda and coffee.
The picture today is my swim workouts. I keep them in a zip lock bag so i can take them onto the pool side.

- track my points again
- keep as close as i can to my workouts
- concentrate on eating raw fruits and vegetables and staying away from processed foods as much as possible
- pay attention to my cravings and what causes them
- eating right on the road (yep i am traveling next week and away this weekend)
Picture is of a motivational book i keep in my office i got for Christmas!!!

So it is weigh in day today at i had a disaster at lunch time. I had to go out with a business group. It was a buffet type lunch and i got Some soup and some fruits but i let myself have some potato salad too. When i got back to track my points i found that the P.Salad was 7 points for HALF A CUP. Ahhhhhhhhhh. Disaster! And i had a cup and a half.I am trying not to let it mess up day and learn from the mistake i made. Then my boss pushes into my hand Girl Scout Cookies that he does not want. I had to give them away.
It is not that 1 cookie would be super bad for me but i think i am like an addict. I got a taste for the chocolate sugar and i get all shaky and have to have more and more. It is a weird feeling but i am glad i finally recognize it.
Workout info: Last night i did hill repeats on my trainer. 7x4:00 min hard hills with a 2 min rest between. 15 min warm up and cool down. Very hard effort. It took me 1hour 10 mins to get done. I watch Grey's Anatomy while i rode but listened to my I Touch. I watched Gray's because my wife was watching it.
This morning was a 30 min run then a SUPER long swim workout for me
This is the longest i have probably ever swam. Ended up being 96 lengths of our 25meter pool in total.
Tonight is weigh in.

Weekend is over :( I had a killer two days training. Saturday i did a double spin class (hardcore) for a total of 2 hours on the bike. It makes a great way to start the weekend. I have to say that as hard as that was it still does not compare to the endurance needed to go to JC Pennys and Walmart and spend 2-3 hours looking for swim suits for two little girls!
Sunday i had a huge swim for me anyway. I woke up Monday and my shoulders are sore from it. Today i have something call 'Hill Repeats' on the bike..hmmmm does not sound like fun!
As far as weight watchers is going it is day 6 for me. Still doing ok and i dont find i am to hungry. I picked up some daily vitamins today to make sure i am getting everything i need.
I lost a ton of audio somehow on my podcast. I haste when that happens. I sent the episode 20 out anyway it just came up a little short.
I am doing well at the fitness challenge at the YMCA. I posted the picture on my blog but i do not think you can see it very well. I am in third place with 1010 miles. There are two familys in front of me. I am in first place individually but i want to catch those families,
Still have the sore throat in the mornings so i am putting off my trainer ride until tonight. I am super excited about me weigh in tomorrow. Get back here to see how i did!!!
Totals For Feb:
19225 Meters Swam
